John Steed’s last case…

RIP-Steed

I just found out from online sources that Patrick Macnee has passed away at the age of 93.  I grew up on the fantastic BBC TV show “The Avengers” and have always been a big fan of Mr. Macnee’s refined crime fighting character John Steed.  Together with Diana Rigg, they were the original television dynamic duo. The show is credited with inventing a new genre, a combination of spy thriller and science fiction known as “spy-fi” and included episodes about killer robots, evil houses, time travel and many other challenges to conventional thinking.

As for Macnee, his trademark bowler hat and umbrella, and his unflappable English gentleman persona will always hold a special place in my heart.

R.I.P. Patrick, you left an indelible mark on the entertainment world.
