Sorry about Honor Blackman, but Diana Rigg was way more stylish and a way better actor. Also Rawrrrrrrr.



She's also still acting, though she's only 81.

You're not wrong, but if Blackman had not been there for the first season, there might have been no series at all for Rigg to star in.

Sir Stirling Moss, the greatest Formula One driver never to win the world championship, dies aged 90

A teammate at Mercedes to Argentine five-time world champion Juan Manuel Fangio, Sir Stirling won 16 grands prix in the 1950s and early 1960s when the sport was at its deadliest and most daring.

Four times a championship runner-up, and also third overall on three occasions, no other driver has won as many races without taking the title.

a life well lived .. :cheers:

Made me chuckle

Motorists pulled over for showing too much haste could expect to be asked by police: "Who do you think you are? Stirling Moss?"

Sir Stirling once revealed he had also been asked the same question by a policeman, "but I couldn't work out if he was taking the mick".

I have the feeling we will be losing a lot of our older pioneers from this fucking pandemic and our leaders' incompetence to handle it properly.

Damn. He was at the Stratford Festival here performing Krapp’s Last Tape a couple years back. I missed it and really wanted to see him in it.
