Re: Gerry Anderson has passed away

I was never one much for Thunderbirds (simply didn't show where I lived) and Space: 1999 (wonky science), but...

Growing up in country NSW, miles from anywhere, a whole world opened up with Supercar, Stingray, Fireball XL5, Captain Scarlet, Joe 90, the Secret Service, and a little later UFO. To say he was a huge influence on my imagination is a wild understatement. To say that I looked forward to what was coming next from him, the same. I had a Stingray annual in the mid 60s that I read and reread until it literally fell to bits.

To say that I am sad today is well short of the mark.
