That would have been hilarious! :lmao: I wonder what Joanna would think? :lol:

The shirt is a manufactured piece that someone's put together, not genuine merchandise, but it is pretty cool with the silhouettes :grin: .

It would have been a bit awkward I'm afraid, as the play had nothing to do with TNA or her previous works. :lol:

The good merchandise usually isn't the official stuff, but it's still nice when these things pop up.

It sure would have been awkward but what else could we wear if there's no other "Jo-shirt" to get. :lmao:
Maybe it's time that they produce some La Bête shirts, that would make it much easier :lmao:

That reminds me... One of the younger women who was part of the regular cast (I believe she's called Liza) was wearing a La Bête shirt: she was reading and going through a London tour guide that afternoon at the stage door, when we were first waiting for Joanna to come and see us. Her t-shirt was fabulous really, Philippa had nearly walked up to her (not knowing she was in the play, haha) to ask her where she'd gotten it from, but we figured out in time that it was DIY, haha.

Re: Avengers merchandise!

Yeah it was just an 'I :heart: London' t-shirt, and she'd written 'La Bête' inside the red heart.

Wow that's cool. You guys should have kidnapped her and replaced it with a "normal" I-Love-London-shirt. :lmao:

Haha yes, though we still had two shows to attend so I don't really think it would have been wise. :lol: We should have made friends with her and arranged a trip back stage, haha.

Oh yeah, I didn't thought of that but you got a point here! :lmao:

Yeah, you should have done that, wouldn't that been something? Well, I guess had we all been there together at once and had we informed and asked Joanna before... well, maybe we could all have met backstage, who knows? :hearteyes:

I just wish the rights holders would produce more of this legitimately. Then by buying it we could support the series on a more meaningful level, show people that the Avengers fanbase has potential the way the Doctor Whos of the world do. :yes:

I don't think Canal+ are interested in Avengers memorabilia beyond reissuing the DVDs, sadly.

No, I don't think so, either, alas. At least we're finally getting decent sets, though. And we have that wonderful 50th anniversary book to look forward to. :grin:

Nice avatar, btw. ^^

Re: Avengers merchandise!

Thanks, I wish it didn't look so grainy. That's what comes of shrinking the image too much.

Yeah, that's a pain. It's a nice shot, too. Sometimes you can get a better result with certain image software:

Don't know if that's any better, but you're welcome to use it. :grin:

Re: Avengers merchandise!

I got my photographic copy of Laurie Johnson's autobiography yesterday. Laurie, of course, wrote the music for the Emma and Tara eras of the Avengers, as well as TNA. Joanna wrote a foreward for it ("Maestro, I salute you!"), and there are a couple of really good Gareth and Joanna pictures in it. So it was worth the money. :grin:

That sounds great. And have these photos been "new" to you, also? Glad you bought a nice book!

A couple of them are, and some of them are bigger versions of ones I've seen before but only in tiny versions. A lot of them are from Faces, which is good. :grin:
