    I loved this guys shows as a kid, a proper legend who contributed a lot to British pop culture in the 60's and 70's.

    FAB Gerry, FAB.

    This is a real shame. Thunderbirds and Captain Scarlet were great. RIP.

    This is sad news :( 

    Luckily, Mr. Anderson left behind a wonderful legacy of television shows who's model/minature work still look utterly wonderful and told exciting stories of courage and daring do.

    SIG Gerry Anderson.

    This is very sad news. I was lucky enough to meet him about 8 or 9 years ago and he was a man who loved his fans just as much as he loved the shows he created.

    He will sorely be missed.

    I've been playing some of the theme songs from some of his works from Supercar to Captain Scarlet.

    Fireball XL5 was a top fave of mine and I've usualy wanted to hum to both opening & closing theme songs.

    He will surely be missed by his fans. :( 

    :rip  Gerry Anderson, your earlier shows are F.A.B.

    Da-amn... that blows. Captain Scarlet and Thunderbirds were great, I used to watch those in the 90s.

    RIP Gerry Anderson, you'll sorely be missed. :(
