Trivia: Ed Bishop returned, along with Francis Matthews, to provide his vocal talent for the CGI pilot of Captain Scarlet. He was naturally brunette and had his hair bleached in order to play Straker, to emphasise the resemblance to Captain Blue. In later episodes he wore a wig because the peroxide irritated his scalp.
