Peter Holmes joined Gerry Andersons Century 21 team as a props assistant after the production of Thunderbirds and very quickly became one of their most talented craftsmen. 

Set designer, John Lageu, gave Peter his first job at the Slough Studios and asked him to build a chair for Brains in the feature film Thunderbirds Six, and when fellow Set designer, Keith Wilson, saw Peters finished chair, he asked him to make the furniture for Lady Penelopes Pink Room in the same film. Peter went on to design and build props for Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons, The Secret Service, the UFO series, Terrahawks and Space Police. 


Over the years, Peter Holmes has worked for many productions including, Set Designer, Along the Way (1972), 1970s pop videos for Adam Ant, Godley and Creme, Duran Duran, and later, Calling Elvis for Dire Straits. He sculpted the head for Max Headrooms ventriloquist puppets and supervised the shoot of Maxs exploding head. Peter won an award for a model of a Dauntless fighter bomber made for a crash sequence for the TV mini-series, War and Remembrance (1988-1989).
