Wendy Richard's first television appearance

Sammy Meets the Girls
(20k)

One can only conclude that it was Wendy's natural good looks that earned her a spot right next to The Man himself!

Wendy Richard in 'Harpers West One'

Harpers West One
(46k)

All these photos are likely publicity shots taken on the set of the show; note that Wendy's dress is the same in all the pix.  The actor with Wendy in the second photo is Gordon Ruttan, who played colleague Jeff Tyson in the series.  Ruttan seems better known for a bit part he played nine years later in Bond-film Diamonds Are Forever.

Wendy Richard in shots from 'Hugh And I' (circa-1963)

Hugh And I
(27k)

A good example of Wendy's look in the mid-1960s (though since I don't know which episode of Hugh And I this is, I can't vouch for the exact year of the image).  The two gentlemen with Wendy here are the series' main protagonists, played by Terry Scott (left) and Hugh Lloyd (right).

The second montage, from a comedy sketch Wendy did on The Arthur Haynes Show, is probably from either December 1962 or April 1963.

In the bottom two photos, Wendy's hair is suspiciously dark -- she might have been wearing a wig.

Wendy Richard in a montage of shots from 'Danger Man' (1964)

Danger Man: "Don't Nail Him Yet"
(62k)

In Danger Man, Wendy appears with Keith Bell (as Bill, on her right) and Leonard Monaghan (as Lennie, on her left).  Interestingly, her character's appearance was not a creation of the show's wardrobe department. The clothes and jewelry were all Wendy's own.

The short educational film The Contact is probably from 1964, though that's not certain.

The short TV movie Don't I Look Like A Lord's Son was one of six rather avante-garde films produced in 1964 by BBC2 as a series (though each short piece stands independent of the others).  These two images from one of the movies appeared as stills during a 2009 BBC tribute to Wendy after she passed away.  The man is probably actor Brian Walsh.

  Wendy Richard and the Lads

The Likely Lads
(132k)

The 2nd image here is interesting for a couple of reasons:  the first is the way that James Bolam is checking out the quality of the material of Wanda Ventham's overcoat; and the second is the fact that Wendy is wearing driving gloves -- even though in real life she'd never learned to drive a car.

  Two scenes from Wendy Richard's series "The Newcomers"

The Newcomers
(31k)

I don't know for certain yet whether these images from The Newcomers are from 1965; Wendy's appearance in both photos just seems to be about right for that year.  (See also 1967, below)

Wendy Richard?

Doctor In Clover
(38k)

Different sources list Doctor's release year as either 1965 or 1966; it's probably the latter. In any case, I believe this set of shots are of Wendy.

Note that Wendy can be seen wearing the same dress in this publicity photo, and the same boots here while tending bar.


  Wendy Richard in three scenes from "Weaver's Green"

Weaver's Green
(36k)

A montage of images from the series. Wendy told me that the left and right photos are publicity shots for the show, and that the man in the middle image, sitting next to her, is the late Maurice Kaufman, who was married to Avengers sidekick and Goldfinger co-star Honor Blackman.

Weaver's Green
(88k)

A delightful collection of publicity photos for the series, probably shot in May of 1966.  The seven black-and-white photos were certainly done at the same time and place.  Your webmeister recognizes the background of a couple of the shots:  it is Richmond Bridge behind Wendy, which pegs the location as on the Thames in west London.  It's probably at the motorboat business that is still there today, on the east bank a few meters north of the bridge.

Though Wendy's wearing the same two-piece outfit in the color photo, this may have been a different session.  The boat is larger, and Wendy's wearing earrings this time.  It's probably the same shoot that produced the left-hand photo in the above montage.

Wendy, circa 1967

Turn Out The Lights:  "A Big Hand For The Little Lady"
(41k)

These appear to be publicity photos from the set of the show.  Since Wendy plays a showgirl, this may well be her character's dressing room.  In the last photo one can clearly see the false nature of the brick wall; evidence of the ephemeral, almost theatrical quality of the set.

  Wendy Richard and Michael Redfern in a scene from "The Newcomers", December 1967

The Newcomers
(110k)

This photo is said to be of Wendy and actor Michael Redfern.  If so, then it's probably from the episode of 7 Dec 67, which is the only time Redfern appeared on The Newcomers.

Your webmeister was unsure initially this woman was indeed Wendy.  The 2nd image here is a overlay composite of the B&W photo with a known pic of Wendy (from The Fenn Street Gang, 1972) in almost exactly the same pose.  Yes, it's her.
