At least 7 scripts would not written for Paul Temple.What happens to Paul Temple if Sherwin stays on as Doctor Who producer?
Tom Baker in what I assuming is the New Avengers?"I'd seen him in Nicholas and Alexandra where he played Rasputin. He had that otherworldly look that I was looking for and I knew he had been passed over for Doctor Who so I thought why not. He was certainly a memorable character and quickly became firm friends with Pat McNee and became a double act at the LWT bar after shooting"

I'll stick to the French and Canada version. To have Avengers USA may cause confusion with the Avengers comics of the time.Tom Baker in what I assuming is the New Avengers?
Hope he get to go both over to France when they shot there and also to Canada when they shot the four episodes over there.
Or do we get Avengers USA this time?
I think you are misunderstanding my reference.I'll stick to the French and Canada version. To have Avengers USA may cause confusion with the Avengers comics of the time.
A co-production between the BBC and ZDF that hit a little trouble. Peter Bryant was brought in to produce during the second series and he persuaded Derrick Sherwin to join him, which necessitated Barry Letts taking over the production of Doctor Who. But if Sherwin has stayed on long enough to be casting the Fourth Doctor, the 70s will have been very different for the show.I'm afraid I know nothing about Paul Temple.
No need to apologise. I'm always willing to learn new info. Yes Tom will travel with the cast.I think you are misunderstanding my reference.
It was not that there was a French or Canadian version of the Avengers .
The show the New Avengers had three production companies involved with it .'
The British one, A French one and a Canadian One.
One of the conditions that the French and Canadian companies wanted was some of the episodes filmed in their country.
So there was a Two Part episode about World War Two Russian Soldiers waking up and killing old French Leaders , (Feature some footage from the original Avengers of John Steed talking to Mrs. Peele on a phone )
And then there were 4 episodes that were shot in Canada .
I was hoping that Tom Baker get to go over seas with the rest of the Cast.
As for my reference to Avengers USA.
Brian Clements did try to get a US TV network to buy a American version of the Avengers .
A pilot was shot
And aired under the title "Escapade" in the US but was not picked up as a series .
The TV movies did air overseas in some markets as "Avengers USA".
Sorry about the confusion
