    Well was at Barnes and nobil and got the Emma Peel mega set DVD for 30.00,that is 17 DVDs and 71
    Episodes that a lot of Emma peel and John steed.a fun Brit show,the first are black and white then switch
    To color.the black and white look good plus my blue ray player upgrades the picture as does my tv.the
    First shows were in mono so my reciever mixes it up to multi channel.i say dianna rigg made the avengers
    A great tv show.

    Yes, we need a woman with M appeal!

    Bless her heart in ALL that she did ...

    Well, thanks, but - the writers came up with that one!
    Thats supposed to be where the name "Emma Peel" actually came from -
    (long time fan - I read that ages ago)

    from the wiki - Emma_Peel

    The name "Emma Peel" is a play on the phrase "Man Appeal" or "M. Appeal",
    which the production team stated was one of the required elements of the character.
    (Diana Rigg was never comfortable in her position as a world-famous sex-symbol.)

    Anyone who is a Dianna Rigg fan should watch the Assassination Bureau Limited it's a fun film.

    Does anyone remember her short lived sitcom back in the early-mid 70's called Diana?
