THE AVENGERS/ABC/1966-69 (Crippled)

Mother (Patrick Newell), the crippled supervisor of special British secret service agents John Steed and Ms. Emma Peel.Mother first appeared as a cameo character on the January 1969 episode “The Forget-Me-Knot.”

Crippled in his early days of service to the crown, Mother was unable to walk without the aid of special strap and ladder suspended from the ceiling.

In constant pain, the rotund man was not the kindest person to work with. Frequently seen in a wheelchair, he chided “Mother knows best.”
