This week in Gerry Anderson news! (December 2nd 2023)

Computer tells us that it’s time for the Gerry Anderson news roundup – and Computer never tells stories!

This week’s edition of the Gerry Anderson Podcast launched on Monday, and featured the second part of an interview with Craig Morris of ITVX! 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 Captain Scarlet to prove his indestructibility for the very first time, as he takes on a Winged Assassin!

December is now here, and we’ve put together an article highlighting what you can expect this month from Anderson Entertainment and the Official Gerry Anderson Store – check it out here!

The critically acclaimed 2022 documentary Gerry Anderson: A Life Uncharted is now available to view on ITVX! Previously only available for paying ITVX Premium members, the film is now available to view for free!

The new Troy Tempest and Phones Stingray figures are now in stock! These limited edition figures are the first of a brand new range of officially licensed, 1:6 scale resin figures depicting characters from Gerry and Sylvia Anderson’s classic Supermarionation TV shows – and are shipping now in time for Christmas!

Fireball XL5 fans will be happy to hear that the series returns to Talking Pictures TV on Saturday December 2nd at 3pm, with the episode The Triads! ‘New’ episodes of Thunderbirds will back in the spring, but repeats of previously shown episodes continue every Tuesday evening throughout December at 7.55pm.

Popular Anderson episodes that first aired in the UK this week in years past include New Captain Scarlet’s Grey Skulls (November 26th 2005), Stingray’s Raptures of the Deep (November 29th 1964), Captain Scarlet’s Special Assignment (December 1st 1967), Joe 90’s Big Fish (December 1st 1968), ThunderbirdsThe Uninvited (December 2nd 1965) and UFO’s Destruction (December 2nd 1970).
