I am old enough to remember the Avengers, John Steed and Emma Peel. It was one of my favourite programmes alongside Dr Who.
R.I.P.
I set a course just east of Lyra
And northwest of Pegasus
Flew into the light of Deneb
Sailed across the Milky Way
On my ship, the Rocinante
Wheeling through the galaxies
Headed for the heart of Cygnus
Headlong into mystery
The x-ray is her siren song
My ship cannot resist her long
Nearer to my deadly goal
Until the black hole
Gains control

RIP Doc

Yes most gents of a certain age would confess to having an Emma Peel poster or two on their bedroom wall, I certainly did.

The most beautiful woman to come from Doncaster? Possibly.

R.I.P. Toots Hibbert, leader of Toots & The Maytals.

I saw them way back in 1974, and they were bloody good.
