Give or Take a Million - S2-E6

Corrected entry: When Nicky asks Jeff for his wish at the start of the episode, Jeff tells Nicky that he must call him "Santa". But when Nicky says that the Thunderbird 3 launch was the greatest thrill of his life, he calls Jeff "Mr. Tracy".

Correction: This is consistent with Nick - right after he was told to call Jeff Santa, he called him "Mr. Tracy" and Jeff is disgruntled. The lesson never sticks.

The Cham-Cham - S1-E25

Corrected entry: When Lady Penelope says "Hurry, Parker, hurry!" in the speeding cable car towards the end of the episode, her lips do not move.

Correction: It is Tin-Tin who says "Hurry, Parker, hurry!", not Lady Penelope, and her (Tin-Tin's) lips DO move.

Show generally

Corrected entry: Whenever we see all the pods moving underneath Thunderbird 2 as Virgil (or whoever) selects the appropriate one for the mission, there's not enough space between them to allow Thunderbird 2 (with its wings) to descend on the selected pod.

Madstunts

Correction: Once a pod is selected, the pods on either side move apart, hence allowing TB2 to fit.

Trapped in the Sky - S1-E1

Corrected entry: It is said Fireflash is cruising at 250,000 feet. But Earth's atmosphere only heightens to 400km. Their were clouds at the the cruising altitude. Clouds only occur around the Troposhpere and maybe in the Stratosphere.

Correction: 250,000 Feet is only 76.2 kilometres so still plenty of room in your 400km.

Brink of Disaster - S1-E22

Corrected entry: Lady Penelope's driving in this episode - as she evades the crooks in the opening scenes - is very proficient and in complete contrast to the atrocious driving that she exhibited in the earlier episode 'Vault of Death'. Perhaps she has had some driving lessons in the meantime?

Correction: Perhaps she has, prompted by the very incident you refer to. Hardly seems unreasonable that she might wish to improve her skills after her abysmal performance in the earlier episode.

Tailkinker

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.
