4.0 out of 5 stars Time for a nostalgic journey 24 Jun 2003
By A Customer
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect! 15 Nov 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a brilliant book and very essential because I own the boxsets of Gerry Anderson's productions from 'Four Feather Falls' to 'Terrahawks'. It's handy because it gives very detailed info on all the shows (notes, episode gaffes etc.)which is great because before we only had 'The Complete Book of Thunderbirds' and 'The Complete Book of Captain Scarlet' that gave information for just those 2 series! Enjoyed reading it and using the guide when watching the shows. For example I was watching episodes of Joe 90 earlier and noticing the little details in the episodes that I wouldn't have noticed before!

Okay now to not really a criticism or a disappointment just to a thought that I thought it was going to be the same sort of layout as the previous 'The Complete books of....' Shouldn't really complain though as this book does have some brilliant photographs from behind the scenes of each series. I really enjoyed this book and I am glad that I have bought it!

To sum up: A fantastic compendium of the work of Gerry Anderson!

4.0 out of 5 stars Indestructible and Timeless! 23 Jan 2007
By Keith Wilfort - Published on
An authoritative look at Gerry Anderson's follow up series to the legendary "Thunderbirds" TV series. The author's knowledge and love for his subject shine through in this well written and researched book. It covers the original series and the more recent CGI version. The only thing I can (reluctantly) fault is that the episode plot synopses are a little thin on detail. (maybe due to space constraints?) Nonetheless, I'd recommend this book to all fans of Captain Scarlet, Gerry Anderson and classic British scifi.
