    Patrick MacNee, a.k.a. John Steed of The Avengers, has died, aged 93.

    He was a part of the landscape of my growing-up years and has the distinction of being the only famous actor to have nearly run me over in his car.

    Sad to see him go.

    My last D2 Patriarch, a Disciple wearing avenger, was called Belsteed. No-one got the reference!! He'll be missed.

    At first, I didn't know who the hell this guy was, but then I realized that the series has a totally different name in Germany which translates to "with umbrella, charme and bowler hat". The Avengers sounds a bit silly to my taste and it was probably more like that in the early sixties.

    John Steed should have rung a bell, however. Emma Peel certainly would have.
