Doctor Who Vs. The Avengers, Series 6 [Part 2]

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 that spring.
Patrick Macnee (who had portrayed John Steed since 
1961) was now joined for the last series by the
Canadian-born actress, Linda Thorson, girlfriend of the 
programme's new producer, John Bryce. Former guest star Patrick Newell (pictured here as Colonel Faraday 
in The Android Invasion) now took a regular role as 
spymaster, Mother.
After completing production on only three episodes, 
Bryce was fired and previous producers Brian Clemens 
and Albert Fennell resumed their posts - both were
later nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award. The 
show was finally recognised by BAFTA with a Special 
Award in 2000.
The Avengers spawned a stage version (starring Simon 
Oates as Steed and Kate O'Mara) in 1971, and Macnee (1922-2015) reprised his iconic role for The New Avengers in 1976. Warner Bros. released a much maligned cinematic 
treatment in 1998, with Ralph Fiennes as Steed, Uma Thurman as Dr. Peel, 
and Jim Broadbent as Mother. An audio series from Big Finish followed in 2013, with Steed now played by Julian Wadham.
The final season included screenplays from classic era writers Terrance 
Dicks and Malcolm Hulke (Homicide and Old Lace), and Terry Nation 
(Take Me to Your LeaderThingumajig and Take-Over).
Another repeat run of the final seventeen stories (from a series total of 
thirty-three) concluded on ITV4 today, and featured a total of fifty-seven

Doctor Who Vs. Ashes to Ashes, Series 1


"My name is Alex Drake. I've been shot and that bullet's taken me 
back in time. Now I'm lost in 1981. All I can do is fight, and search, 
and stay alive. Because somehow I will find a way home."

The sequel series to Life On Mars was also produced by Kudos and Monastic for BBC Wales. Keeley Hawes now led the cast as another out-of-time detective, DI Alex Drake - a colleague of recently deceased DCI Sam Tyler. 
Philip Glenister, Marshall Lancaster and Dean Andrews all reprised their roles
 (as DCI Gene Hunt, DC Chris Skelton and DS Ray Carling respectively), and 
were also joined by newcomer Montserrat Lombard (as WPC Shaz Granger).
Ashes to Ashes (referencing another David Bowie song) was co-created by Matthew Graham and Ashley Pharoah, and centres on a present-day Metropolitan Police inspector, Drake who is shot and regains consciousness
in 1981. Like its predecessor, the period setting is lovingly recreated against 
rich backdrop of social history, and more importantly here, the music of 
the early eighties.

January 9 to February 27 2008) concluded on the Drama channel last night,
