retail news in context, analysis with attitude

Diana Rigg, whose television career alone spanned her turn as Emma Peel in "The Avengers" from 1965-68 to a more recent casting as Olenna Tyrell, the Queen of Thorns, in "Game of Thrones," has passed away.  She was 82.

Rigg has a robust stage and film career, but is perhaps best known to fanboys as Tracy Di Vicenzo, the one woman who James Bond actually married, in 1969's On Her Majesty's Secret Service.  (Bond was played, for the first and only time, by acting novice George Lazenby;  Rigg brought the project style, class and a high level of talent, helping to make OHMSS one of the best Bond films in the judgement of many.)
