It is entirely thanks to celluloidbroomcloset that I have taken to noticing all the times Tara forgets that her flat has two doors.

Fanzine “With umbrella, charm and bowler” from January 1985 claims that

1. Mrs Peel touched “various portions of his (Steed’s) upper torso more than 360 times”.

2.She kissed John Steed a total of 78 times.

They didn’t mean both, but I guess the first one could be true ;-)

My long-term aim for this blog is now to corroborate that first claim.

She kissed Steed 78 times?!?! Really?!

Tara

celluloidbroomcloset:

I’m really not handling the Tara episodes well. They either make me sad because Steed is all angry or blase about life; or they make me angry because Tara does something blatantly idiotic.

Did the writers just go “Hey, we did this whole liberated woman thing for years…

Actually I’m doing the same thing…it’s retro post night lol ;-)

I was looking for something else and then I found this - which I believe was originally posted by lotsofbrolly.

I found these in the files on the DVD’s.

Cool, proof they did re-write their scripts!!
