She was considerably more than the voice of one puppet, not only playing a full role in the other Anderson projects such as Captain Scarlet and Stingray, but also acting as producer for other shows, but to me she will always be Lady P -- brave, intelligent, stylish, and generally FAB.

Gerry & Sylvia Anderson's puppets ... I watched Supercar, XL5, Stingray, Thunderbirds, Joe 90 (Not much Captain Scarlet). Mostly better SF than live actor TV & Hollywood. :)

Sylvia was fab.

They did a lovely thing in the new Thunderbirds, by inviting Sylvia Anderson to play the new Lady Penelope's great-aunt, Lady Sylvia. And they re-created the original FAB 1, and called it FAB 0. The episode is Designated Driver.
