I bought the Avengers DVDs that featured Rigg a couple years back. You can keep Jolie and the rest. Mrs. Peel is by far the best female action star.

I wanted to be the fabulous Ms. Peel when I grew up. Alas! It's hard to get that British articulation when you're from the South. Also didn't have the designer clothes nor the cool sports car. But I managed the attitude just fine.

I loved her observation about the President and his advisers. And after reading some of her other views, maybe she should be a Presidential adviser herself!

I just wish in all that she did in her career, Dame Diana had been asked to do an episode of 'Columbo'. I think seeing her spar with Peter Falk would have been fantastic!
