Trivia

The headquarters of B.I.S.H.O.P. are in the Centre Point building at the junction of Oxford Street and Charing Cross Road. An architectural icon of 1960s London, the building was deliberately kept empty by property tycoon Harry Hyams for ten years as its value soared from £5m to £20m while not being liable for taxes as it was unoccupied. Gerry Anderson obviously decided the ideal location for a secret intelligence office was an otherwise empty building. See more »

Dull as a sermon
20 August 2002 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

After Thunderbirds and that mysteron series, I looked forward to this Anderson offering. Tried to like it, but it was too slow and the concept of a priest working for the British Secret service (British Intelligence Secret Headquarters Operation Priest or BISHOP) didn't really take off. I guess if I wanna watch a show with marionettes as the cast, I need more toy rockets and explosions.
