A couple of years after retiring as Emma Peel, Diana Rigg moved to the US, changed her hairstyle and made a concerted effort to become Mary Tyler Moore. Her short-lived but high-profile sitcom, DIANA, featured the future Dame as a fashion designer. Years later, when my wife and I met Ezra Stone, the former radio star turned TV director, he told us of how much he enjoyed working on this series. Apparently all the fun was behind the screen, however as the show just wasn't very good and Rigg's appeal was very different than it had been on THE AVENGERS.
