I always remember his distinct voice from the opening credits of Battlestar Galactica from the late '70s (as well as the voice of the Cylon leader and playing Count Iblis).

Wow, 93

I remember MacNee narrated all the James Bond Making of documentaries from the early DVD sets in the 2000's. Those documentaries were great by the way.

RIP He had a long life and long career.

He lived a long time but still sad news. RIP.

I love The Avengers now, but remember as a young kid how excited I was when I discovered there was a show called The Avengers and then thinking "wtf, where are Cap and Iron Man? This show sucks."
