New Avengers

It's become a bit of a running joke over Christmas, that places I visit on the bike keep turning up as locations for stuff on TV.

Turville appeared most often, as the location for the Vicar of Dibley, and Goodnight Mr Tom. The windmill above Turville famously features in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, which was also shown over Christmas (as usual). Apparently, Turville was also the location for Went the Day Well, and some episodes of Midsomer Murders.

Then on Thursday, we were watching an old episode of the New Avengers. St Bartholomew church at Fingest turned out to be the hiding place of Ian Hendry. He played an agent who recovers his memory 17 years after falling off a trapeze while working under cover in a circus (this is the new Avengers, remember). Steed, Purdey and Gambit must find him before the baddies do, if they are going to discover the identity of the traitor. Who who turns out to be....

But the episode "To Catch a Rat" is repeated on BBC4 again tonight, and I wouldn't want to spoil anyone's fun.

Oops, sorry, it was repeated in the early hours of this morning, so I can reveal that the traitor turns out to be Cromwell, the head of DI6.
