For those young people who never saw her in the Avengers, at least they were able to see her in Game of Thrones.

Mrs. Peel was on my very short list of favorite tv characters back in the day.  The Avengers show was paying Diana Rigg less than the cameramen, so she quit after 2 or 3 seasons when they wouldn't pay her comparably to the male actors.  Beautiful, talented, and stood up for herself.

Tidbits:

1994; DBE (Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire)

Quote
Michael Parkinson, who first interviewed Rigg in 1972, described her as the most desirable woman he ever met and who "radiated a lustrous beauty".

"Do you have one where she kicks really really high?  Hee-hee-hee."

You need to capitalize Dame and how dare you assume their gender?

That was the point, use of the regular case of  dame... as in...

"
We've got sunlight on the sand. We've got moonlight on the sea. We've got mangos and bananas we can pick right off a tree. We've got volleyball and ping-pong and a lot of dandy games. What ain't we got? We ain't got dames!
