Brigadier Pertwee! [Aug. 15th, 2008|01:35 am]
The Cardiff Mafia

I hope this counts as on-topic for here, and I'm sorry if it isn't! Last night my flatmates and I decided to watch an episode of The Avengers, and we randomly chose the first episode of Season 5, From Venus with Love.

About half way through, a character was mentioned who was a Brigadier, and we geeked happily about that. Then he appeared on screen, and silly_cleo said, "You know, he sounds a lot like Three..."

I like the hat-of-crazy.

If you haven't seen The Avengers, you should probably watch it for the LOLs anyway. The Pertwee is the unexpected icing on the cake! :D

Oh I saw it back in the day - I have seen all sort of "ye olde TV" since I'm an oldie! *grins*

But I don't really remember it - same as I've forgotten much of the Who I saw as a kid (and Sapphire and Steel and I don't know what else besides!)

Hee! I'm rather like that with The Avengers - I saw the reruns on TV when I was a kid and loved it, but I don't remember the plots and hadn't seen it again until recently when I got hold of the Emma Peel episodes. Because it's all about Emma Peel. ;D

I still haven't seen any Sapphire and Steel but I keep hearing about it all over the place. Must watch some!

*nods vehemently* I don't remember plot details for S&S but I do remember loving it as much as I loved Doctor Who. It was excellent for its time...

Emma Peel is cool!
