Tonight’s Doctor Who, The Crimson Horror, features Diana Rigg as Winifred Gillyflower. She’s expected to be a baddie. Rigg will be known to geeks outside the UK as Lady Olenna Tyrell, the Queen of Thorns, in the Game of Thrones TV series. In fact, she’s rarely been away from the screen but will be known very well by British geekas as Emma Peel from The Avengers.
The Avengers is the 60s TV show that still resonates so loudly today that when the Marvel Avengers movie was released in the UK it was retitled to The Avengers Assemble.
The main US trailer for The Crimson Horror is very similar to the UK one except the joke Strax makes about “going up North” is cut.
