What, aside from Steed and Gambit? Purdey had a lot of would-be paramours, but how far any of them got was another matter. There was Larry from Three-Handed, yes, whom she seemed to have some sort of history with, but there was also George Stannard in Eagle's Nest, and the she found Marty Brine in Trap interesting as well. Of course, Purdey was engaged to be married to Larry Doomer until he went off the rails. I tend to think that Purdey was reluctant to get involved with anyone because of her terrible experience with Larry, and so a lot of her relationships consisted mainly of flirting and the occasional dinner--they never seemed to get any further than that. Of course, Purdey had a Tara Kingish, hero-worship, infatuation with Steed, but I like to think that in the end it was Gambit who she was really interested in. Her perpetual jealousy of his dates and tendency to drop him the occasional bit of encouragement smack of someone who was interested but too damaged from her last failed love affair to seal the deal.
