This week in Gerry Anderson news!

Attention all Anderfans! I, your Mighty Leader, summon the Gerry Anderson news roundup to advise you!

This week’s edition of the Gerry Anderson Podcast launched on Sunday evening, and featured the second part of an interview with Terrahawks art director Gary Tomkins plus New Captain Scarlet on the Randomiser! If you prefer to stick with traditional audio-only rather than our new and improved video format you can still catch it (and all other previous episodes) every week either through our website or via your podcast platform of choice.

Also new this week over on the Gerry Anderson Randomiser Podcast (also available on all podcast platforms) it’s time to Breakaway in the very first episode of Space:1999!

Stand by for action! Our collectible replica Stingray sidearm is now available to pre-order from the Official Gerry Anderson Store! The brand-new screen-accurate life size scale prop replica comes in a presentation box with a stand and a certificate of authenticity! This limited edition of 500 units is sure to sell out fast – so order yours now!

In anticipation of Captain Scarlet‘s arrival on Talking Pictures TV today at 3pm, we’ve compiled our ten favourite episodes of the series in this new article – but do you agree with our choices?

This week’s Thunderbirds Thursday article delves deep into the extended universe of Thunderbirds with a look at International Rescue’s comic strip adventures – which era of Thunderbirds comics was yours?

The 60th anniversary Stingray saga Deadly Uprising is approaching at rate 6, and this week Broken Frontiers exclusively previewed the new stories you can expect to find alongside classic TV Century 21 tales in the pages of the two Stingray comic anthologies being published later in the year! Learn more about those stories and their writers here!

On May 28th we remembered legendary Anderson voice artist, actor and writer Shane Rimmer on the 95th anniversary of his 1929 birth, while popular Anderson episodes that first aired in the UK this week in years past include Fireball XL5‘s Invasion Earth (May 26th 1963), Supercar‘s The Sunken Temple (May 27th 1961), Stingray‘s The Master Plan (May 30th 1965), and TerrahawksDoppelganger (May 31st 1986).
