Re: Gerry Anderson has passed away
To me, Gerry Anderson will probably always be the guy behind Thunderbirds and Space: 1999.
Thunderbirds, well, I can remember assembling my own models of those ships. As for Space:1999, that cool looking 1970s space opera I watched many moons ago. Visually it's still one of my favourite looks for sci-fi - the modern design, the fantastic model work (the Eagles in particular).
He was inarguably one of the titans of British sci-fi TV. He will be missed.
