Action, suspense and drama await Jack and Katherine this week as they sit down to watch the live action Gerry Anderson series, The Protectors! Will Katherine be able to handle the high altitude adventure and unapologetic grooviness of this classic 1970s television show?
Actor Robert Vaughn, best known in Gerry Anderson circles as the star of The Protectors, passed away on Friday, aged 83. He had been suffering from leukaemia for a short time and was surrounded by his family when he died.
For those of you that don’t know, every week I have been writing in-depth reviews of each episode of the original Thunderbirds series. During these reviews I have been closely studying what appears on screen and highlighting bits and pieces which point to how the episode was produced, and which parts worked well or didn’t work so well. Part of that process has involved analysing one aspect in particular which relates to the first eleven episodes to go into production.
