Yeah, I'd heard about that last month. It bodes ill for any reboot of Thunderbirds, for which he got the rights a couple of years ago. Very sad for him -- my mom is going through this and it's no fun to watch. (I think he's older than she is, too.)

It's such a shame for anyone to go through such a thing, but especially so for someone with such genius. It was heartbreaking to read about him not being able to drive and how that affected his life so much.

It doesn't bode well for a reboot at all, does it? I was hoping there was some news about it, but that's how I found out about this Sad
