Diana Rigg, Mrs. Peel

Description:
A photo of Diana Rigg in the 1960s television show The Avengers. Given that she was not comfortable with the idea of being a sex symbol, it's a good bet that she wouldn't be happy with this photo.

The Mrs Bradley mysteries were fabulous. I remember when she hosted “Mystery” on PBS as well.

Diana Rig’s Mrs Peel showed me as a young girl that women could be strong, smart, clever and beautiful all at the same time. I have the whole “The Avengers” series on VHS. I adore her!
