Thunderbirds

Sun Probe - S1-E4

Character mistake: During the television report about the Sun Probe, a diagram shows the solarnauts' control cabin within the Probe Module. But we later see that the control cabin is within the body of the Probe Rocket when the Module is fired into the solar prominence.

Sun Probe - S1-E4

Character mistake: When Brains is playing chess with Braman at the end of the episode, the positioning of the chess board is incorrect, as for both players there is a white square in the bottom left corner.

Day of Disaster - S1-E15

Character mistake: When Lady Penelope visits the psychiatrist in his office, she addresses him as "Mr. Korda" instead of "Doctor".

Give or Take a Million - S2-E6

Edge of Impact - S1-E16

Character mistake: Tim Casey is a Colonel, but Scott refers to him as a General in one scene.

Trapped in the Sky - S1-E1

Character mistake: When Gordon and Scott are playing chess at Tracy Island towards the end of the episode, the chess board is oriented incorrectly, as there is a white square in the bottom-left corner.

The Duchess Assignment - S1-E23

Character mistake: When the croupier at the Duchess' table calls out the phrase "Rien ne va plus" (French for "no more bets"), he pronounces "Rien" incorrectly - he pronounces it "RINE ne va plus" instead of "REE-en ne va plus".

Mistakes

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.
