The Blog is Dead, Long Live the Blog.

New Blog. New Look. New (Shorter) Name. But the same old me! I thought the old name was funny when I first dreamt it up, but well the joke wore off quite quickly, and by then I was stuck with it. So here is Shed of Delights. My virtual garden shed, where the deckchairs are always out and the kettle is always on. For those of you that think a shed is a thing for keeping the lawnmower in, you couldn’t be more wrong. It’s a place of peace and harmony. Somewhere you can go to have a potter, and be surrounded by your favourite things. Free from the stresses and worries of every day life. Or…. the place where you chuck your old crap.

The old blog isn’t going to be deleted, I’ll use it for extra things, like posting a film review here without spoilers and the full review including spoilers on the old blog. Or temporary housing of say very large movie posters.

But in this, the first post on a new blog I thought I’d indulge in a link-fest and look at the coolest of TV series The Avengers.

I’m going to start with probably the most informative and complete Avengers site on the web, The Avengers Forever. A site I have spent far too much time on. Of particular note is the wonderful episode guide.

Another good complete episode guide can be found at, The Science Fiction and Telefantasy Databanks.

And a third can be found at, Mrs Peel We’re Needed.

Next we have two articles which appeared in Timescreen.
A Day in Avengerland.
The Cybernauts – A Character Analysis.

Here is an interesting advert from the 70s.

Here is the official Patrick Macnee site.

Here are the Screenonline page, the IMDB page, and the Wikipedia page.

There is an Avengers sound page.

Next we have Los Vengadores a Spanish Avengers site.

And then we have Avengers on the Radio. This site concerns itself with the incarnation of the Avengers, which appeared on South African radio. There are lots of episodes for you to download.

And lastly a Diana Rigg shrine. Every shed has to have a pin-up right?

"He kills their kids, he kills their wives, he kills their parents and their parents' friends. He burns down the houses they live in and the stores they work in, he kills people that owe them money. And like that he was gone."



Hi Dave's new blog!

Thanks Sheiky. I too had (or should that be HAVE?) a thing for Purdy. There will be posts on The New Avengers, and lots of other shows in the near future. Thanks for dropping by.
