Kenneth Williams and The Avengers

KW's diary for January 7th 1966 records:
Went to see Joe Orton and Kenneth Halliwell. Watched some television, 'The Avengers', which was puerile.
Records show that this must have been Room Without A View. What a picture that conjures up, the three of them sitting there at Noel Road under the pink and yellow chessboard squares of the ceiling, watching this chess-themed Avengers ep.
