Gerry Anderson, creator of Thunderbirds and Captain Scarlet, has died at the age of 83.
The chairman of his fanclub, Nick Williams, said:
To those who met him Gerry was a quiet, unassuming but determined man.
His desire to make the best films he could drove him and his talented teams to innovate, take risks, and do everything necessary to produce quite inspirational works.
Gerry’s legacy is that he inspired so many people and continues to bring so much joy to so many millions of people around the world.
