A comprehensive guide!,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Complete Book of Gerry Anderson's UFO (Paperback)Anyone that's bought UFO on DVD in the last 18 months should buy this book - if anyone knows this series and the Andersons inside out then it's the author Chris Bentley. They don't make series like this anymore and unfortunately never will again.
The only slight disappointment initially was the lack of colour printing inside (especially as the series had such a high visual impact), however I've heard that this allowed for an increase in the number of pages and therefore you get much more detail (which is fine by me). It's easy to forget just how many people worked behind the scenes on a show such as this (shot on film to a feature film standard), and thankfully there's plenty of information on un-credited cast & crew as well as the many interesting stills taken during filming. In addition, there's pages on pre-production, cast & character biographies, deleted scenes and more. One major oversight is the lack of a pull-out poster of Deborah Grant or Ayshea - but you can't have everything I suppose! :)
