Plunge into the Big Pear with this week’s podcast as Katherine and Jack explore Dick Spanner’s first mysterious adventure. Will the whacky humour win over Katherine or has Jack made another dumb move by showing her this series?
Get ready for another action-packed episode of Operation Anderthon, during which Katherine complains repeatedly about the length and lack of character development in the Gerry Anderson pilot film, Space Police – the bizarre predecessor of Space Precinct.
Terry Adlam’s mechanical private eye, Dick Spanner, was brought to life by Gerry Anderson’s team at Bray Studios in 1986 using stop motion animation. LEGO and stop motion animation have a long history, and Dick Spanner P.I. is an absolute cracker of a series full of tongue-in-cheek humour, so I thought it was about time I captured the character in LEGO form.
