Very sorry to hear that Gerry Anderson has passed away today at the age of 83. I was brought up on Thunderbirds, Joe 90 and Captain Scarlet, and was a big fan of UFO and Space: 1999. (I well remember my Thunderbirds jim-jams, and had all the Corgi cars and ships - all sadly long gone. Those were the days when you played with toys).
If you purchase The Legacy Box next month, you will see him on the More Than 30 Years In The TARDIS DVD, interviewed with his son who was a Doctor Who fan - to Gerry's pretended exasperation.
1970's Doctor Who stories made a lot of use of recycled models from Anderson productions.
RIP Gerry - you and your work will never be forgotten.
