I don't really know how see looked in the series, but I guess it was good enough to be cast as ***** Galore. Big Grin


Honor Blackman joined the filming of 'Goldfinger' immediately after completing her final Avengers show. She had been a big hit in the show and was no doubt the reason why she was cast as Ms Galore, in fact it's mentioned in the film by Connery -'...who taught you Judo?'.

The early shows were shot cheaply on videotape, usually completely in a small studio. The later shows (Rigg/Thorson) were shot on film with the whole production re-geared for the international market, which is why those are the ones most people are familiar with.

Hmmm, pretty sure he died in Jan 2016 and Unstoppable released the book Sep 2016 actually!! Get your facts right Wink


I did say pretty sure. No need to get nasty. TBH I thought Bowie died early 2017, not 2016. My mistake.

Thanks for the clarification. So would you have an idea or estimate of just how many of those cards she did sign at the event, for Unstoppable and/or the public?


I honestly can't remember how many she signed, there were enough to insert 1 per case, except for 2 which had the Ian Hendry cuts, and the 5 sketches also went in the boxes. No-one knows how many of the organisers cards she signed.

They had some great guests there that weekend, I took my son with me and Jason from Showmasters walked him to the front of every queue to get signed autographs from all his favourite actors, think we ended up with about 20 signed photos!! I just remember Diana Rigg being very impressed with the sketch cards, couldn't believe an artist could do a masterpiece on a card that small!! Oh and we had a family photo with David Tenant which was the icing on the cake for the kids!![/QUOTE]

Thanks for the description and info. I can picture her looking at sketch cards for the first time. We follow the card hobby and various other collectible markets, but celebrities often don't, just like most people. So if they get to a show or signing, they are often presented with pictures, cards, dolls, plates, home made displays and various forms of memorabilia that they don't even know have been made. You know what they're thinking. Big Grin Thanks again. Smile

That's what is says on their web-page, along with two different prices for a single display box.

So about 30 odd signatures, loads of duplicate variants and around 8 or 9 that won't be going anywhere near the boxes!
What a manipulative s&£%show, 'business' as usual!

The website says that the first 100 orders for Avengers get an exclusive auto, and 2 foil cards which are part of a set that will continue with the Series 2 and Series 3 releases, in the future.

Any pictures of these foil cards ?

I guess I missed out on these, as I did not order yet and I am sure that 100 people have already placed theirs....

I was wondering if anyone ever found the cut signature card of Dolores Mantez, Lt. Nina Barry from UFO card release? Was curious what it looked like.
