Sam Denham (born January 8th, 1960) is an author and documentary producer. A Thunderbirds fan from an early age, he has worked on a number of books relating to the series such as Derek Meddings' 21st Century Visions (under his pen name Sam Mitchell) and the Haynes Thunderbirds manual (alongside artist Graham Bleathman). Denham also worked as a writer on Supermarionation Cross-sections.
More recently, he has written for the fanzine Andersonic as well as the 2017 Captain Scarlet Spectrum Agents' Manual. Denham also wrote episode guides for and contributed at least one interview (which was with Mike Trim) to Thunderbirds – A Complete Guide to the Classic Series, and allowed Marcus Hearn to photograph and scan some of the rarest items from his collection for Thunderbirds: The Vault (which Hearn is the author of).
Denham is expected to make a documentary of the days of the Thunderbirds team that will be released around 2018 or thereafter. Additionally he received thanks on the Thunderbirds 50th anniversary brochure for his valued contributions in the production of the book.
