3Ethnic stereotypes; focus on British superiority

5Anti-French humour; frequent puns at Napoleon Bonaparte
6Often borrowed themes/ideas for his TV shows from coeval American ones or classic horror movies
#Quote
1[on plundering classic Hollywood movies for inspiration] I don't use the word plagiarism. I call it an homage.
2[about The Avengers (1961) losing popularity in the US] Americans simply count the bodies. They never take into account the manner of the killings. In fact, the stories are about as violent as the average pantomime or Grimm's Fairy Tales.
3[about Linda Thorson replacing Diana Rigg in The Avengers (1961)] She's sexier, more pneumatic in build, with a bosom and hips.
#Fact
1Best remembered for his work at ITC in the 1960's and early 70's, especially as writer/producer of "The Avengers" (for which he wrote the pilot in 1961), "The Baron", "The Persuaders" and "Danger Man".
2According to his son Samuel, the last thing he did before he died was to watch an episode of The Avengers (1961) and his last words were: "I did quite a good job".
3Hw left school at 14. After national service with the Royal Army Ordnance Corps, he worked his way up from messenger boy to copywriter at an advertising agency, writing in his spare time.
4One of his scripts was accepted by the BBC in 1955. He joined a production company, literally writing scripts to order. With tight deadlines and plots often based on the availability of sets, props or location, he churned out scripts for B films and TV series.

6He was awarded the OBE (Officer of the Order of the British Empire) in the 2010 Queen's Birthday Honours List for his services to Broadcasting and to Drama.
