    Mrs Bradley? Mrs - later Dame - Beatrice Lestrange Bradley, as originally written by Gladys Mitchell, was old, ugly and crocodilian (though the author gives her a beautiful voice). Miscasting to the max.

    Mrs. Bradley Mysteries - I was racking my brains trying remember the name too. I rather enjoyed the episodes I saw - nice Sunday-evening TV.

    She also starred in a humorous mystery series. ("Mrs. {something's} Mysteries", I think.)

    I loved Diana Rigg in The Avengers and I wish I had seen her in This House of Brede. I disliked Gladys Mitchell's books, so would probably have watched that series only for her.

    My TV was taken out by a bookcase landing on it in the Feb 2011 quake in a triumph of culture over crass commercialism and though I bought another one reception wasn't as good as a subsequent quake meant the chimney to which the aerial was attached, had to be demolished, so I gave up watching.

    RIP Diana Rigg. As a young teenager, I wanted to be her (well, Mrs. Peel, anyway), and I could never again watch the show after her character drove off with...someone. As a student at University College London, I saw her in “Jumpers,” and thought her performance far superior to Tom Stoppard’s play. I did like “In this house of Brede,” and there other programs. May she rest in peace and rise in glory, and may her memory be a blessing.

  • The Mrs Bradley Mysteries? Cannot remember the author of the original books, except her christian name was Gladys...

    Gladys Mitchell. I have hate both the books of hers that I have tried to read.

    Doorkins Magnificat, the former owner of Southwark Cathedral, has sadly died.
  • I had to read the name carefully before twigging!

    RIPARIG, O splendid Feline...
  • Eddie Van Halen has died after a long battle with cancer.

    Go ahead and Jump.

    God's gain, our loss. Happy shredding Eddie, you are always a giant.

  • I was never a huge Van Halen fan, though I recognised his truly gifted virtuosity, but this has made me unaccountably sad. Happy shredding, indeed.

    Dear kitty! May she rest in peace and rise in glory, and may her furry memory be a blessing.

    Likewise.

    @Rossweisse Thankyou for the introduction to Doorkins Magnificat. I'm delighted to have made her acquaintance, albeit posthumously.
  • RossweisseRossweisse Hell Host, 8th Day Host
    Oh, it was @Sipech who posted about her. I simply replied.

  • Canadian soprano Erin Wall has died, far too young, at age 44. We heard her here in Toronto in Arabella not very long ago.

    What a loss.

    That's awfully sad - so very young. :cry:

    Just caught up with this thread and having loved Diana Rigg and In This House of Brede - I wondered where I might see the movie. It's on YouTube - I hope you enjoy!
  • HuiaHuia Shipmate
    Thank you so much Helix, I am in the the middle of a house tidying bout :confounded: and I will view it later as a reward.
  • HelixHelix Shipmate
    I hope you enjoy Huia! It's worth the wait.
  • RossweisseRossweisse Hell Host, 8th Day Host
    Thank you, @Helix . I saw that when it was new, and greatly enjoyed it. I look forward to seeing it again.
