RIP Sylvia Anderson

Sylvia Anderson, co-creator of Thunderbirds with her former husband Gerry Anderson, and the voice of Lady Penelope, has died at the age of 88.

Anderson collaborated with her husband Gerry, who passed away in 2012, on evergreen shows such as Captain Scarlet, Joe 90, Fireball XL5, Stingray and UFO, which she designed the costumes for. But it's perhaps Thunderbirds that she will forever be associated with thanks to its glamourous agent Lady Penelope Creighton-Ward whom she provided the voice for and whose appearance was modelled upon her own.

Gerry and Sylvia split in 1981 and Sylvia subsequently went on to become a head of programming at HBO as well as an author.
