Honor Blackman

Honor was a very talented actress, best remembered as Cathy Gale,
sidekick to Mr Steed (Patrick Macnee) in The Avengers which had a
regular tv slot 10pm on Saturday nights, during the sixties.
She appeared as a Bond girl with Sea Connery and for me was my favourite.

Appeared in many films as a character actress from the late forties, also
a part as a professor in a Dr Who in a story which appeared in the eighties.
She appeared in Midsomer Murders in 2003 'A talent for life' playing
the part of Isobel Hewett.
Very ladylike in her manner and will be sadly missed.

RIP
Honor.

Definitely a fine actress (they call themselves 'actors' now).

Was there not another female In the Bond films called Plenty O’Toole? Connory’s remark being “named after your father,I suppose”.

She crops up as a 'supporting actress' in old films from the late 1940's...We, or at least I, forget just how long ago 'The Avenger's' was (nearly 60 years)..So she'd been in her 30's even then

A good looking woman......

I loved the Avenger's Bentley (as well).

She was stunning in her black leather gear. And a genuine lady.
On leaving the sea I went into tv studios. I worked at Teddington, ABC 'Iris Productions' making Avengers - it went out live in the early days.

Hi Harry,

You must have had the privilege of meeting the cast from 'The
Avengers' , if that is correct, what a great experience it would have
been to have a chat with them.

It was indeed a privelage, though we thought nothing of it in those heady days when tv was so new. The Avengers director was a Ukrainian Canadian, Ted Kotcheff; his language was riper than anything in the docks - he called me colourful names one day when I got his slides upside down.
The set designer was a brilliant mind, Voytek - he was the fellow that brought in a horse-drawn hearse and converted it to Steed's cocktail cabinet.
Armchair Theatre went out live in the early days (video tape was in its infancy - that's what I worked on). A fifty minute drama full of mystery- very few people seemed to comprehend the story line - all most arty. One day, a lead actor died on set, he was carried away during the commercial break. The director ripped up the script and flung it away - then called out to the actors 'Coming to the next scene in 60 seconds - just make it up as you go along. The newspapers critics had no idea - they just assumed it was the usual obscure high
art.
From Abc I went into ITN news and then to Yorkshire TV. Great days - I could stand at the bar and have a beer with the hilarious Harry Secombe. After a show, Diana Dors liked nothing better than to hold court in the bar surrounded by we technicians, regalling us with outrageous tales.

Way back in 1947 stirred the cockles of an 8 year old school-boy's heart in her first ever role as Emma in (Howard Spring's) "Fame is the Spur" and never failed to do the exact same throughout her entire career. RIP Honor Blackman.
