Doctor Who Vs. The Avengers, Series 6 (Part 1)

This cult British fantasy show returned to the ITV regions
in the autumn of 1968 for an eight-month run, following it's debut on American television in the spring.
Patrick Macnee - who had portrayed John Steed since
1961 - was now joined for the last series by the Canadian-born actress, Linda Thorson (born 1947), 
girlfriend of the show's new producer, John Bryce. 
The series opened with Diana Rigg's final appearance 
as Emma Peel. Former guest star Patrick Newell (1932-1988) also took a regular role here (in twenty episodes)
as spymaster, Mother.
After completing production on only three episodes, Bryce was fired and previous producers Brian Clemens (1931-2015) and Albert Fennell (1920-1988) resumed their posts - both were later nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award. The programme was finally recognised by BAFTA with a Special Award in 2000.
The final season included screenplays from 'classic' era writers Terry Nation 
(Legacy of DeathInvasion of the Earthmen and co-author of Noon-Doomsday), 
and Dennis Spooner (Look..).

Doctor Who Vs. A Study in Terror

This British thriller (which premiered on the Horror channel yesterday) chronicled the first encounter between two iconic Victorian figures, the
fictional detective Sherlock Holmes
and the infamous murderer, Jack
the Ripper.
John Neville (1925-2011) and Donald Houston (1923-1991) portrayed Holmes and Watson in an original narrative, were Holmes exposed the identity of the Ripper.
The film was novelised in 1966 by
Ellery Queen and Paul W Fairman,
and the Holmes/Ripper concept
was later dramatised in Murder 
By Decree (1978) and Holmes and 
the Ripper (2010), and adapted for the novels The Last Sherlock Holmes 
Story (1978) and Dust and Shadows (2009).
Here, the Whitechapel Murders began with (the non-canonical victim) Emma Smith in April 1888, and the Ripper is soon revealed as Lord Carfax.
A Study in Terror co-starred Robert Morley (as Mycroft Holmes), whilst Frank
Finlay (Inspector Lestrade) and Anthony Quayle (Dr. Murray) both later
appeared in  Murder By Decree. Released by Colombia Pictures in 1965, the
film also featured a young Judi Dench, and nine Doctor Who cast and crew connections:
  • John Fraser (Carfax here; and Uncle Gideon in Young Sherlock, 1982) played the Monitor in Logopolis
  • Carry On actress Barbara Windsor (Annie Chapman) made a cameo appearance in Army of Ghosts as Peggy Mitchell, her EastEnders character
  • Adrienne Corri (Angela) was Mena in The Leisure Hive
  • Dudley Foster (Home Secretary [Henry Matthews]) was Maurice Caven in The Space Pirates
  • Barbara Leake (Mrs. Hudson) was Mrs. Farrell in Terror of the Autons
  • Patrick Newell (PC Benson) was Colonel Faraday in The Android Invasion
  • Bill Brandon (Ruffian) was an uncredited Mongol Warrior in (episodes 1 and 4 of) Marco Polo
  • stuntman Peter Diamond was a regular stunt double and fight arranger on the classic series, from The Daleks: The Rescue to The Daemons
  • John Cox was the sound supervisor on both Dalek films too
