Confirming that he has “finalised a deal to make a new series of the Thunderbirds”, the 81-year-old is hoping that the adventures on Tracy Island will appeal to the new generation – as well as recapture the old fans of the retro sci-fi puppet show.

Despite the show only making 32 episodes, the Thunderbirds became puppet heroes in the mid-1960s among both children and adults. Will it be as successful in 2011?
