Storyline

Gerry Anderson's third SF supermarionation saga told the adventures of the WASPs (the World Aquanaut Security Patrol) as they explored the oceans and kept the world safe from a variety of perils. The WASP's main weapon was Stingray, a super-sub under the command of Troy Tempest. Troy's copilot was Phones, and they were often joined on missions by Marina, a princess of the undersea kingdom of Pacifica. Marina could breathe under water, but was unable to speak. In charge of the WASPs was gruff Commander Shore, whose daughter Atlanta was both a member of his staff and Marina's rival for Troy's affection. Written by Marg Baskin <marg@asd.raytheon.ca>

Under the sea with Gerry Anderson
7 October 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Thunderbirds gets all the glory but there is a lot of fun to be had with Gerry Anderson's other puppet programme for kids and adults alike 'Stingray'.

The plots are OK and we warm to the characters as they go about their adventures. It's entertaining and funny and that's great.

What perhaps this show lacked that Thunderbirds had was the fact there wasn't as much depth to the characters and we never loved them in the same way we did about Lady Penelope and co.

Stingray may not be the classic show that Thunderbirds was, but it's still worth hunting out on DVD.
