Adapted from a classic comic strip story by Chris Dale and performed impeccably by Wayne Forester, this tale will transport listeners right back to the nerve-wracking Mysteron city on Mars.

The excitement doesn’t stop there. Get ready to wear your fandom with pride with the ultra-exclusive ‘This is the Voice of the Mysterons’ t-shirt. With only 300 units available worldwide, this is a must-have collector’s item that serves as a thrilling homage to the ominous voice that tantalized audiences during the series.

Art enthusiasts are in for a treat as well with the release of a limited edition set of A3-sized prints, featuring the mesmerizing Ron Embleton paintings from the end titles of the original 1967 series. These pieces of art capture the timeless spirit of Captain Scarlet, making them a worthy addition to any collection.

Captain Scarlet‘s reach and influence are monumental – with its footprints in over 40 countries and translations into 17 languages. Now, fans can indulge in the classic series and the CGI revamp on BritBox and ITVX.
