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.

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.

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.
