Prepare yourself for an exhilarating journey into the heart of Martian intrigue with the new Captain Scarlet Martian Menace audiobook, coupled with limited-edition merchandise and an insightful documentary released on ITVX.

Captain Scarlet Day isn’t just an arbitrary date – it echoes the series’ legacy, appearing repeatedly in the show and marking the birthday of renowned writer Tony Barwick. This year we’re upping the ante, amplifying the celebrations with an array of new releases designed to thrill both new fans and die-hard followers.

Your auditory senses are in for a treat with the release of Captain Scarlet Martian Menace! This isn’t just an audiobook – it’s a 75-minute deep dive into nostalgia, fear, and adventure. 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.

Dive even deeper into the Captain Scarlet universe with Captain Scarlet: Spectrum Declassified, a brand-new documentary on ITVX. This one-of-a-kind feature offers behind-the-scenes access and unique insights, celebrating the series that has captivated generations.
