There's actually an episode of the Avengers where Steed and Mrs Peel work with Russian spies - I've often wondered what a pairing of Illya and Mrs Peel would be like. I wouldn't like to be in a fight with those two. Emma could kick the ass of the biggest, toughest, most brutish looking types without even smudging her eyeliner. What a woman. She was like the 60s version of Ziva David, only English. She could speak several languages though!!
The Avengers is my second favourite 60s spy show, without question!! It's sort of what the Man From UNCLE might've been like if it was on an even tighter budget and was British!! It even had an equally amazing theme tune!!
Sorry, returning you now to Ducky...
