Introducing the new Lady Penelope

Click to enlarge.
ITV have today revealed images for how Lady Penelope, Parker, and Brains will look in the brand new Thunderbirds Are Go series that begins on CiTV in April. It's quite a makeover for Penelope but her old style was very 1960s so change was inevitable. Parker remains distinctly Parker, albeit in a new outfit.

A more radical change for Brains as he's no longer white. No doubt there'll be cries of "Political Correctness gone mad" from some corners but I can't see why it'd be a problem myself. We live in a multicultural Britain and it's good that the new series is reflecting that. 
Lady Penelope is voiced by Oscar-nominated Rosamund Pike while David Graham reprises his role as Parker. Brains is voiced by Kayvan Novak. ITV report that Sylvia Anderson (who voiced the original Lady Penelope) will voice a new character in one episode as Penny's Great Aunt Sylvia. 

To keep up with the developments of the new series follow the official Thunderbirds Are Go Facebook page:

A regular Thunderbirds Are Go magazine will be published by DC Thomson this year.
