Rigg. It's either Diana Rigg or the Tournament and I are going to have a serious disagreement.

Diana Rigg is the Beatles to her opponents' Turtles. I love Flo & Eddie (seriously, I do) but they are not Lennon & McCartney. And through no fault of theirs.

But facts are facts. And they are also stupid things, I believe President Reagan once said.

I'm with you, Who. I respect Julie Christie but I love Diana Rigg.
