Thunderbirds

Ricochet - S2-E5

Audio problem: As John and Gordon are fitting the new component on Thunderbird 5, John says, "It looks like we'll be another two hours before we're back in business. In the meantime, International Rescue is non-operational." But he is voiced by David Graham, not Ray Barrett.

Vault of Death - S1-E7

Audio problem: When Lovegrove realises that Lambert is still in the vault, he is talking with Carter, whose voice is initially that of Shane Rimmer but then changes to a completely different voice provided by David Graham.

Trapped in the Sky - S1-E1

Audio problem: When Scott and Lady Penelope are communicating with each other via mobile control, the timing on the lip sync between the two characters during the split screen effect is completely out of place.

Sun Probe - S1-E4

Audio problem: When Jeff says "Scott, Alan, Tin-Tin" after hearing from the TV Reporter that all hope is fading for Thunderbird 3, the words don't match his lips.

Alias Mr Hackenbacker - S2-E3

Audio problem: When the first reporter asks Saville, "Have you found an answer with Skythrust?", he is voiced by Jeremy Wilkin. When he says "Yeah, captain, make a statement", he now has a completely different voice provided by Paul Maxwell.

Attack of the Alligators - S1-E24

Audio problem: When Culp is walking from his boat to the window outside the laboratory, some dialogue from Dr Orchard describing the theramine process can be heard in the background. When we are in the laboratory, Dr Orchard describes the process with the same dialogue soundtrack.

The Mighty Atom - S1-E6

Audio problem: When the Reactor Station Guard catches The Hood taking pictures, he can already be heard blowing his whistle before he finishes saying "Hey, what are you doing?"

The Duchess Assignment - S1-E23

Audio problem: In the opening scene at the casino, the rogue croupier at the Duchess' table is voiced by Matt Zimmerman, but when the same croupier calls out "18 red", he has a completely different voice provided by Peter Dyneley.

Path of Destruction - S2-E2

Plot hole: In order to build up suspense, Virgil and Brains stand on the Crab Logger as its dangerous fuel is pumped out, despite the fact that it is hanging on the edge of a precipice. In fact they could have left as soon as they had plumbed in the pipes to empty the fuel tanks - the whole procedure is controlled by Scott in Thunderbird 1 and they make absolutely no contribution to the operation at all. They do not need to disconnect the pipes; they are left behind and dropped from Thunderbird 1 as planned. They just stand there chatting about how much danger they are in until jumping clear at the very last second. Silly buggers.
