"I dunno, man, I’m just a horse."
Poking him with a knife in a hallucination probably doesn’t count… but there is definitely implied touching in the fact that she tended his injury and put his arm in a sling. But I’m unsure how many to count it as. I think, for the sake of counting, I’m going to assign it 1 for presumably helping him onto the table, 1 for checking the injury, 1 for removing the bullet/bandaging the wound, and 2 for putting his arm in the sling. Which makes for a total of 5, bringing the total count thus far to 31. Possibly 32, depending on whether Steed’s stumbling earlier is ruled as a touch.
Plus: Undressing the jacket is 1 and undressing his scarf 1 too ;-)
To begin, I’d like to state that The New Avengers is my personal favourite television series, and is an often-too-hidden gem.
However, I’m not so keen on the French episodes of The New Avengers on the basis that Purdey and Mike appear to be off with each other, as with…
I think, sadly, everyone would agree that the second series, towards the end, took a definitive turn for the worse. But I agree some of the early episodes were awesome- “obsession” springs to mind immediately. Probably my favourite episode, to be honest. But the cut down in Gambit screen time is a bit disheartening. I mean, I get Steed became far more pronounced, so that was good for fans of the original series, but as I saw TNA before TA, I see Gambit as just an equal part of the team; a necessary cog. Therefore, I find episodes like the Unicorn one, wherein Purdey and himself seem to be in a continuous disagreement, quite sad ): Think of the games of scrabble compared with the frost nature of the said episode ):
I guess “Forward Base” and “Gladiators” did allow more Purdey/Mike time, especially with him closing that car boot so she wouldn’t see the concealed horrors, but it still just didn’t have the cute edge of the first series between the characters.
Series 3… Oh how I dream of that!!
I think they could have upped Steed’s presence without necessarily cutting so far into Gambit’s, though I’m not certain that Gambit necessarily got less screen time in the end. His character was turned into something of a stooge in the second season, which was not fair. Without really liking Gambit, I can agree that the show didn’t do right by him. Purdey got a good bit of development on the show, but Gambit didn’t. As I came to the series primarily for Steed, I was glad to see him more frequently in the second season - his role in the first season was often relegated to making phone calls while Gambit and Purdey ran off and did things.

Manip #1 to Celluloidbroomcloset’s new The Avengers Fanfiction
(I guess “The honeymoon”is/ was the title of the whole story?)
Following a discussion with Avengerness, I decided to move ahead with a longer story Steed and Emma’s honeymoon. As this one is going to be a multichapter, it might take awhile for everything to go up. (And hopefully Avengerness will do some manips for it as well!)
This is the first part, which I decided to just go ahead and post. No title for the full work as yet.
Oh yes, I already love it ! Terrific start! This is going to be an exciting story and I know I will enjoy each chapter…there’ll be manips!
It’s incredibly difficult to tell if they actually touch her. He stumbles toward her, but I don’t know if they actually make contact. Thoughts?
No, there’s no contact. His left hand is inside his jacket pressing on his injury and the split of a second after this scene he staggers a bit and then walks toward the table…
Steed having fun…in Brief for Murder
Au XVIIIème siècle, en pleine guerre entre les Anglais et les Français pour le contrôle du Canada, des soldats britanniques doivent mettre la main sur des documents secrets…
I can’t believe it. “Mission of danger”from 1959 with Patrick Macnee is available on DVD. It’s a film made from three episodes of “Northwest- Passage”, Patrick Macnee was part of episode “The red coat”.
The film is a B-movie, but id you like around 25 minutes with Patrick Macnee as stubborn Colonel Harrison Trent….it’s worth it.
And I have to credit the site where I found it.
