The Duchess Assignment - S1-E23

New this month Continuity mistake: After the Duchess has been rescued by "those romantic young men from International Rescue," when the Duchess removes the canvas from her umbrella, in the closeup (with human hands) she's wearing a pink button-down, but in all other shots there are no buttons whatsoever.

The Duchess Assignment - S1-E23

Continuity mistake: The pod chosen for Thunderbird 2 in order to rescue the Duchess from the burning house is Pod 3, but if you look carefully when the Mole is coming out of the pod, you can see "Thunderbird 2 Pod 4".

Path of Destruction - S2-E2

Plot hole: 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.
