The Secret Service 2018
Unstoppable Cards Films, TV, Sci Fi & Comic Art The Secret Service 2018 The Secret Service 2018 LT18 - The Secret Service was the eighth and final Anderson series to use supermarionation puppetry, but this differed from previous shows in that its central character Father Stanley Unwin resembled and was voiced by a real-life comedian of the same name and it also included footage of live actors in the long-distance shots. The story focuses on Father Stanley and his verger Matthew Harding who work in a quiet English village, but they have a hidden-life as secret agents for an organisation known as BISHOP which is a covert branch of British Intelligence. In their defence of the realm against foreign agents and terrorists they often deploy a secret devise known as the minimiser which shrinks people to a fraction of their actual size. This proves useful in smuggling Harding into difficult to access places and also shrinks villains so they can be easily defeated. In addition Unwin has a 1917 Model T Ford known as Gabriel which has been secretly revamped. Apparently Gerry Anderson was a fan of Stanley Unwin and wanted to make full use of his comic talents including his ability to speak his own form of gobbledegook. The cards picture the characters and scenes from the series whilst the numbered backs feature different pictures and details of the episode or character.
