What is it about British TV and their casting women in strong roles? Dr. Who has a history of this, too. However, one notes that the head character is always male. I would like to see Dr. Who's next regen to be a woman and she would find a guy companion. But I am getting off topic here.

Cathy Gale, The Avengers original female companion was played by Honor Blackman, who notably starred in the third James Bond movie, Goldfinger as the incredibly misogynisticly named Pussy Galore.

I loved Emma Peel, not only because she was smart, sexy, and resourceful, but she drove a Lotus Élan, an incredibly sexy automobile. Tara King also drove a Lotus, a Europa. Sexy women in fast cars. I think Thames Productions knew what their audience was.

Again, I want to see a female Dr. Who and a female Ms. Steed.
