New Captain Scarlet

Between 2003 and 2005 Gerry worked on his final show.  Returning to one of his classics he produced New Captain Scarlet – but this time using CGI animation techniques.  At last freed from the limitations of those awful puppets he hated so much he could let his imagination roam.  These ‘actors’ could walk, run, get up from a chair and their faces had actual expressions.  Also, these actors didn’t refuse to be photographed on one side of the face or have arguments about the size of dressing rooms.  After all those years – at age 76 – he could create the kind of show he had always dreamt of.  26 episodes were made by a small company based at Pinewood, which had become his second home for many years.
