And back to Avenger-Trek…

But first…

Oh, here we go again! On two separate channels on the TV we seem to have, on one an episode of the original 1960s series The Avengers with Diana and Patrick, and on the other, an episode of the original 1960s  Star Trek with Bill and Leonard. As usual, let’s watch them both, we’ve seen them all before, (and we could possibly chip in with the lines before the actors actually say them!) we’ll just keep flicking between the two with the remote. Oh, what fun!…

‘Captain’s log: Stardate, 1672.1.’
‘Magnetic fields Mrs Peel?’
‘Ready to beam up Captain!’
‘The boots are kept secret?’
‘Just one moment! Captain, are you alright?’
‘As far as I’m concerned it’s going fine Steed.’
‘A transporter malfunction?’
‘How do you do? I’m Mrs Peel…’
‘Come in Spock. What is it?’
‘Ha ha ha ha ha…’
‘What? Acting like a wild man?’
‘Now! At once! Right away!…’
‘We beamed up this animal!…’
‘It’s an anagram for Emma Peel!’
‘A savage mean and fierce one!’
‘I deal out justice and vengeance!’
‘You are too beautiful to ignore!’
‘I am the Winged Avenger!’
‘Fused into one being Mrs Peel?’
‘Dr McCoy says that you…’
‘He’s really got his wings clipped now!’
‘No, no, I was in my room – it wasn’t me!’
‘Aha, champagne and a dozen Whitstable oysters!’
‘We have an imposter aboard!’
‘A crusty port Mr Steed?’
‘What! An unexplained duplicate of me exists?’
‘He he he, ha ha ha!’
‘Yes Scotty, I know…’
‘It’s the ghost of the dead duke!’
‘Phasers set at number one!’
‘How about a nocturnal stroll?’
‘Captain’s log: Stardate 1673.1.’
‘He was swinging on the bell rope?’
