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)

New data  All these photos are likely publicity shots taken on the set of the show:  Wendy's dress is the same in all the pix.  The question of whether the dress is a costume or her own outfit remains open -- Wendy probably owned the high-heel shoes visible in the fourth photo, since she can be seen wearing them in publicity photos shot around the same time at her home.

 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

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
(103k)

A delightful collection of official publicity photos for the series, probably from May of 1966.  All the black-and-white shots were certainly done at the same time and place.  Your webmeister recognizes the background of a couple of the pictures:  that's Richmond Bridge behind Wendy, which pegs the location as on the Thames River in west London, 6.5 miles east of Heathrow Airport.  The photoshoot probably took place at the motorboat business that is still there today, on the east bank immediately north of the bridge.

The first photo in the batch was captioned on the back exactly as follows:  "Another New Face In Weavers Green -- Wendy Richard's Mum owns a London public house, so it is natural that Wendy would spend quite a lot of time behind bar.  But this barmaid activity is only part of Wendy's life, for she is a very competent actress as you will realise when she is seen shortly in an episode of the Anglia Television serial Weavers Green.  Playing with her is Maurice Kaufmann, husband of the famous Honor Blackman.  The scenes which were shot with Maurice Kaufmann were taken on the Norfolk Broads and this is the bikini and hair piece that Wendy wears in the scenes."

Though Wendy's wearing the same two-piece outfit in the color photo at the bottom, 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, and may in fact have taken place up in Norfolk.

(30k, 102k) New data

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 quality of the theatrical 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.
