Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons

Winged Assassin - S1-E2

Revealing mistake: As Delta Tango 19 takes off from the airport, there is a shot where it is actually landing. This can be seen from the fact that there is no runway behind them, as it is in front of them.


White as Snow - S1-E6

Character mistake: At the start of the episode, the Ground Controller says that the TVR-17 will be landed at 1400 hours, but a few seconds later he says 1900 hours, before they decide to change it to midnight.

Manhunt - S1-E4

Audio problem: After Colonel White thanks Captain Scarlet and Captain Blue at the start of the episodes, they reply with each other's voices.

Avalanche - S1-E5

Trivia: When the Captain Scarlet series was sold to TV broadcasters, ITC (who had backed and then marketed the series) issued a "recommended broadcast order". This was not always the same order as the episodes had been made. Episodes 1 to 4 were made and broadcast "in sequence", but from episode 5 this no longer applied. Episode 11 ("Avalanche") was the 5th to be broadcast, swapping places with the episode "Point 783" which was the 5th to be made, but the 11th to be broadcast.

Trivia: Captain Scarlet's voice and face were based on the actor Cary Grant.

The Inquisition - S1-E32

Trivia: This episode features flashback footage from "Big Ben Strikes Again", "Crater 101", "The Trap" and only eleven minutes of new material. The flashback to "Crater 101" also features a flashback of its own.
