Pod 231: Kim Newman MYSTERONISED

It makes sense that Nightmare Movies and Anno Dracula author Kim Newman would be drawn to Captain Scarlet, but what is his favourite of the many Gerry Anderson shows he watched growing up? The answer might surprise you! In this episode, Kim explores the uniqueness of Thunderbirds' altruistic format, the pioneering Century 21 merch empire, and how puppets became such a dominant part of the television landscape. Plus, the usual gubbins you might expect to find in an episode of the Gerry Anderson Podcast!

Richard James

Playing Officer Orrin in Gerry Anderson's last live action series 'Space Precinct' clearly wasn't enough to put Richard off the worlds of Gerry Anderson!

As well as co-hosting the Gerry Anderson Podcast and the almost-monthly Facebook, Twitch, Periscope and Youtube broadcast, FabLive, Richard has also taken parts in the audio series 'Terrahawks' and the pilot minisode for the forthcoming 'Gerry Anderson's Firestorm'.
