Chance to say farewell to man who brought Thunderbirds to life

Story posted on

FRIENDS and family of a Whitley man who helped bring Thunderbirds to life will get the chance to say goodbye at his funeral. 

Douglas Luke’s funeral will take place at Devizes cemetery on Friday 30th January at 10am and anyone is welcome to attend.

In his life Doug achieved so much as a stills photographer and was an important part in the making of Thunderbirds as his imaginative shots helped bring the puppets to life. His work on the set of the hit show created images for merchandise, comics, annuals, toys, games and general publicity with much of his  work still used today.

Sadly, he died after suffering with dementia and his death has led to many tributes from fans of Thunderbirds and the supermarionation shows he captured.
