Move - And You're Dead - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: As Alan makes his telecall to Grandma, the close-up of his hand dialing her number shows the push-button dial panel with letters on the left and numbers on the right, but on the puppet-sized telecall unit, the numbers are on the left and the letters are on the right.

Move - And You're Dead - S1-E9

Deliberate mistake: Throughout Thunderbirds, when the script required objects to be manipulated, there were cutways to close up 'insert' shots of real human hands - usually of the puppeteers/crew. However in this episode, Alan's close-up (i.e. live action) hand is remarkably hairy with very dark hair. Yet Alan Tracey is supposed to be 21 and blond haired (including the hair on the back of his hands).

Continuity mistake: When Alan contacts his father at Tracy Island, Jeff asks him "How's the situation, boy?" Alan informs him that Grandma has passed out in the heat and Alan's face is covered in sweat. But after a quick cut to Jeff saying "Passed out?" we return to Alan, and the sweat on his face has disappeared.

Continuity mistake: When Jeff Tracey is first contacted by Alan, he is sat behind his desk, but when the picture cuts back to him after a quick shot of Alan, he is suddenly perched on the front of the desk reading a magazine.

Continuity mistake: When we first see Virgil in the cockpit of Thunderbird 2 in the launch sequence at Tracy Island, he has nothing on his head. Later on, when we see both him and Brains, Virgil is now wearing his International Rescue hat, but when we see Virgil after the launch, the hat has gone.

Move - And You're Dead - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: When Thunderbird 1 is pursuing Gillespie and Gomez towards the end of the episode, Gillespie and Gomez both have their hands on the steering wheel in the car in one shot, yet the view from Thunderbird 1 shows only Gomez driving the car.
