Everyone's offended these days! Things should be left alone and not cut up like an old tea towel. They are valuable and accurate historical documents and show it as it was. UFO, Space: 1999, The...

I have it on good authority that the Captain Scarlet book is now 100% finished, is with the publishers and will be published this year. So, 2019 should be a good year for Anderson-related books, as...

Personally, I think that the Mysteron 'duplicates' were a bad idea - much better if they could just kill someone and then just bring them back from the dead under Mysteron control. Strangely, this...

Of course, the high-speed rotation creates a huge problem for the occupant(s) of the craft, as no-one could possibly survive such an experience - even if their lungs and nasal cavity were filled with...

It's certainly true that the UFOs would have to use some kind of 'warp field' or 'warp bubble' technology in order to travel the unimaginable distances to earth and back home again. Straker talks...

Someone has recently asked why the UFOs spin when they are travelling through space.

Good question, as there seems to be no reason for it.

My speculative answer would be this:

The UFO is...

Sorry, but your latest post doesn't make much sense. Why not just say "I would rather pay 100 for it than 200." And whilst I don't suggest that this is on your mind, you could buy it for 100 and...

Popularity of the various series...then and now.

As a kid growing up in the 1960s and '70s (I was born at about the same time as Stingray was being launched into the world), I saw most of Gerry Anderson's classic shows first time around. They were...

I can't see there being the sort of interest in Joe 90 as there was in Captain Scarlet. I wouldn't bet too much on the Most Special Edition box set selling all 1,000 copies.

I would have thought that 'Blake' from The Secret Service was literally a puppet of Captain Scarlet that had therefore previously been used as such.
