Trivia

Diana Rigg found out a cameraman was making more money than she was so she demanded a raise to put her salary close to her co-star’s. Thanks to the popularity of the show in the US, she received it.
Emma Peel was the first character on television to do Kung Fu.
The name “Emma Peel” was a play on the British film industry expression “M-appeal”, meaning “man-appeal”. That’s exactly what they were looking for in the Emma Peel character.

Quotes
