Its time to go on a journey. Be prepared! Its a journey through British television nostalgia that takes you through the world of Gerry Anderson........
It all starts off in 1957 when Anderson reluctantly makes a puppet show called Twizzle and finishes with 1990's with the little known Lavender Castle but of course goes via the classics including Thunderbirds, Captain Scarlet and Space 1999.
The books author, Chris Bentley, is an obvious Gerry Anderson fan (you'll soon discover he is the chairman of the Gerry Anderson fan club) and his attention to detail is brilliant. Every episode is listed with all the credit information you could possibly require. There are some great production stills too and the inevitable introduction by his mate Gerry Anderson.
The one things that really strikes you in this book however, is Gerry Anderson's career seems to have faltered once he divorced his wife Sylvia Anderson. Classic series after series was created by this duo, but once her name falls off the credits during Space 1999, Gerry's career falls off the rails too. Less than 100 pages of this 300 page book are devoted to the last twenty years of Gerry's career, but we must not dwell on that two long - the dynamic duo of Gerry and Sylvia left us with some of the best British science fiction television ever made.
