Trivia

The cute little milk trucks delivering to PURRR are the British Motor Corporation's Mini Moke. Intended as a replacement for the Jeep, the Mini Moke suffered from a weak engine, poor ground clearance, and low speed. In the 60s it gained some repute as a light utility vehicle and as a dune buggy. See more »

My favourite Avengers episode ever.
26 August 2016 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

I love this episode of The Avengers. Not only does it contain copious amounts of felines, but it also contains the beloved Ronnie Barker. I enjoyed the way the actors interacted with the aforementioned felines with obvious affection and gentleness. The plot is, as usual, quite bizarre, but the dialogue is slightly more risqué than usual. I am particularly fond of the 'Emma Peel' episodes, as they have always seemed slightly more surreal and ahead of their time than the others. I love the incidental music as well. It is very atmospheric and also ahead of its time. The ending is unusual and unexpected unless, like myself you have seen it several times.
