Purdey's character was originally called "Charly", but this was changed when it was realized that there was a perfume with the same name. It is rumoured that Joanna Lumley suggested the name Purdey, after the most expensive and revered shotgun in the world. See more »

Loved the 60's version a real mind trip and lots of fun with Steed and Emma...the only reason I viewed The New Avengers was to watch the resourceful, witty, beautiful and ultra-feminine Purdey played by Joanna Lumley, plain and simple.
