From his Son Jamie Anderson...

Iím very sad to announce the death of my father, Thunderbirds creator, Gerry Anderson. He died peacefully in his sleep at midday today (26th December 2013), having suffered with mixed dementia for the past few years. He was 83.

Didnt he have Alzheimers anyway?

Guess his death is related to that?

Favourite series : UFO.

Really sorry to hear that. His creations made my childhood presents so much fun to get....with Tracy Island being the best.

Very sad news

Supercar then Fireball XL 5 was the first programmes I remember watching. Just so much part of my childhood.

Eddie Badger 26-12-2012 16:36

A major part of my childhood - and I still enjoy his shows as an adult. RIP and thank you for all the fun.

Theo_Bear 26-12-2012 16:46

I knew he had dementia diagnosed a while back, but it's sad that he's left us so soon.

He was a genius with what he did.

Keyser Soze 26-12-2012 16:47

Loved his shows. RIP Gerry. :(

Ray266 26-12-2012 16:47

What a sad loss, I loved Thunderbirds & still do I can remember when Thunderbirds started I missed the first part because it was split for the news at 6pm, But for me like has just been said on BBC News 24 by the head of Fanderson it's the end of the first episode " Trapped In The Sky" that does it for me every time, I can see me watching the last episode of Thunderbirds tonight I have on Blu-ray " Give Or Take A Million" where brains makes it snow on the island oh ok I'm just a big kid:(

MC_Satan 26-12-2012 16:48

Very sad. Along with Quincy the other day. Both were biggish parts of my viewing when younger. Such a shame.

Muggsy 26-12-2012 16:50

Fireball XL5, Supercar, Stingray, Thunderbirds, Captain Scarlet...so much part of my childhood.

RIP Gerry.
