This week in Gerry Anderson news!

Okay news roundup, you’re clear for launching!

This week’s edition of the Gerry Anderson Podcast launched on Sunday evening at 7pm, and featured the second part of an interview with Doctor Who star – and Anderson fan – Nicola Bryant! 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) Spectrum deployed their forces to catch Captain Black, in the Captain Scarlet episode Manhunt!

Yesterday saw the launch of our long-awaited new Thunderbird 2 premium collectible model! More than half the stock is now sold, so if you haven’t already placed an order you can pre-order yours right now at a special week-long discount price from the Official Gerry Anderson Store! These Thunderbird 2 models are strictly limited to one per customer, and will begin shipping in mid-April! Which model would you like to see us produce next?

Earlier in the week we also published an article revealing full details about the model, which you can read here!
