So long Ms. Peel

Long before there was a Peggy Carter, Nikita Taylor, or Carrie Mathison, Emma Peel had what it took to (stylishly) wield a Beretta Jetfire, Walther P-38, MP40, Colt Peacemaker, and everything in between.

She also looked strikingly like Countess Teresa di Vicenzo, the only dame tough enough to become the wife of a very Australian-sounding James Bond.

Speaking of dames, Dame Enid Diana Elizabeth Rigg, DBE, has gone on to that great stage in the sky and another of my great unrequited childhood loves and aired its final episode.
