Lost Babes: Gabrielle Drake

The sexiest purple wig in TV history

We had a most enjoyable lunch with HMS today who has given us much to ponder on as regards future content of this blog. He mentioned that he had been watching Gerry Anderson's paranoid classic UFO. Agent Triple P caught an episode of this too, recently, and was much taken by Gabrielle Drake as Lt Gay Ellis.

Nice boots

Is the Chicken Tikka done yet?

So young, so cute!

Oh my goodness!

Fancy a shag?

So young, so perky!

She isn't really a lost babe as she still turns up in the occasional TV drama even now, appearing in Heartbeat in 2006.

She has never looked finer than in her bacofoil outfit and purple wig as the commander of Moonbase (although her character was later demoted for having a fling with one of her interceptor pilots and sent back to Earth). Back on Earth, and working at SHADO HQ, she had to forego her purple wig, however.

These pictures showcasing her undeniable charms come from Au Pair Girls (1972) directed by Val Guest (who directed one of our favourite films: When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth). Although you can buy Au Pair Girls on DVD you can't get When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth.  Something very wrong there.

Gabrielle was born in Lahore, Pakistan in 1944 and now lives in a converted Abbey in the Midlands. Her brother was tragic sixties hippy singer songwriter Nick Drake

Gabrielle in her forties-possibly even more attractive!

We were in Forbidden Planet this week and they had a Lt Gay Ellis doll! A bargain at £29.99!

Gabrielle today. Still very, very attractive!
