There's a live-action film of Thunderbirds
coming out soon. Wouldn't it be great if in any close-ups of hands they used wooden puppet hands? It won't happen though, there's a limit to how many in-jokes they can put into these nostalgic remakes of old TV programmes because, as Peter Bradshaw points out in his Guardian
review of Starsky and Hutch
, all Hollywood films these days are aimed at children.
