On 29 November, a special meeting of the Steedumbrella fan group founders took place, at which Aleksei Sidorov, Sergei Pronin and I decided to renew the club's audio archive. In addition to a promotional audio recording of A. Sidorov's new fanfic "Behind the Fog", on the same day the author made audio recordings of his early work "A Dangerous Job" and his new comic strip "Mister Steed in a Hurry to Help". The fan group founders are also planning to make an Avengers parody video later this month, which will include a humorous 5th Series intro and a short plot snippet for which I'm preparing a script.
At the moment there is a list of performers for the 5th Series intro parody:
Aleksei Sidorov - John Steed; Denis Kirsanov - the hero's first partner; Aleksei Arsentiev - the hero's second partner. Film director and cameraman: Sergei Pronin.

Today I decided to tackle the Patrick Macnee section. In addition to the standard information that I took from the Russian-language Wikipedia, I supplemented the 1960 England chapter, originally titled "Success", with new information, also placing it on the original Wikipedia page. On top of that, I've edited many of the pages in this section and hope to move on to publishing new pages 5th Series and 6th Series tomorrow. The work will go late, everyone can get acquainted with the update of the material during the current day.
I wish you all a pleasant reading.
At the moment, the following has been added to the Patrick Macnee section: Career start, Canada, America, 1960 England, Filmography, Other works, Personal life, Interesting facts and Links.

Welcome to Steedumbrella – the first Russian-language website dedicated to the British TV series The Avengers.
An idea of creating the website came up recently, due to the limitations of the Wikipedia project, where the page about The Avengers could not fit all the necessary information for this major series.

A step for this work was taken yesterday and first I decided to compile all the data from the Wikipedia project into separate pages on the new website Steedumbrella. By default, I chose a simpler design and layout than I intended, but over time, the pages will take on the proper look, convenient for any user.

The following pages have been added to the Patrick Macnee section: Early Years, Theatre School and War.

Currently, I have made available the following pages of the website:
