This week in Gerry Anderson news!

Better keep away from the pool – it’s about to open to reveal this week’s Gerry Anderson news roundup!

This week’s edition of the Gerry Anderson Podcast launched on Sunday evening, and featured the second part of an interview with Morgan Jeffery and Tom Eames of the Two Geeks Two Beers podcast! 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 for Joe 90‘s first real assignment, as he takes on the gunrunner Mario Coletti in Hi-jacked!

Stingray made a triumphant return to British television this week courtesy of our friends at Talking Pictures TV! Don’t forget that the series continues Saturday afternoons at 3pm, and if you miss an episode you have 7 days to catchup via their online (& freeview) catchup service TPTV Encore!

Gerry Anderson Day 2024 is approaching fast, and we’ve got a new t-shirt design now available in the Official Gerry Anderson Store! Read more about the event and the shirt in a new article here!

This was the week of World Book Day, and we ran a new article looking at our popular range of tech manuals! We also ran a 10% off sale at the Gerry Anderson Store to celebrate – did you add any titles to your collections?

This week’s Thunderbirds Thursday article took a look back at the definitive moments of each of the five Thunderbirds craft – but did you agree with our picks?
