A round up of the press notices by Darren Dalglish
Most of the popular press liked it....THE TIMES says, "It’s insubstantial fun, but children currently nagging their parents for a Tracy Island model will probably be bemused while only cheery 'Fanderson' obsessives will find these rocket-fuelled, retro kitsch antics a total blast." THE EVENING STANDARD says, "Dawson and Robertson give hilariously wooden performances as the Thunderbird characters.." THE INDEPENDENT says, "It's hard not to think that this is mission accomplished in scoring the alternative adult panto of the season." THE GUARDIAN says, "An affectionate, good-natured show with really funny moments." THE STAGE headlines "Wooden playing gets the laughs". And goes on to say, " The 35-upwards brigade will find much to chuckle about." TIME OUT says, "This is good-hearted, knockabout comedy, but it will keep only the most committed fans happy for the running time."
