Gerry Anderson passes

Earlier this evening I read of the death of Gerry Anderson, the creator of such TV greats as Thunderbirds and Captain Scarlet (to name but a few).

These were prescribed watching for me when I was a lad and the thought that yet another icon of my miss-spent youth has passed away has left me feeling a little down.

Rest in Peace and thank you for some fantastic memories.

Thanks for nothing this Tony. Gerry and Sylvia Anderson were a huge part of my childhood, especially their two series UFO and Space 1999. Growing up in Canada I missed much of their earlier work, including Thunderbirds - I only discovered that show in adulthood. It is amazing how much they were able to do in an era before the special effects that we take for granted today.
I feel the same kind of sadness I felt when I heard of Gary Gygax's passing, another icon of my youth.
Cheers,
Mike
