Attack of the Alligators - S1-E24

Visible crew/equipment: A film camera and its camera operator can be seen reflected in the glass during a shot of Mrs. Files at the window of Orchard's house in the opening sequence.

Attack of the Alligators - S1-E24

Continuity mistake: During the after-mission chat, Alan is wearing a bandage above his left eye due to an injury he picked up on duty. If you look carefully this bandage sometimes changes between shots; it is particularly noticeable when he's in the bathroom with Tin-Tin. Also, the bandage is too small and too high up to have covered the injury adequately. (00:45:25)

Attack of the Alligators - S1-E24

Continuity mistake: When Kalp makes his surprise appearance via Lopez's secret waterway, after shooting Scott's gun out of his hand, he holds up a test tube of Theramine. As he says, "Remarkable discovery." in the close-up, the position of Kalp's hand differs. (00:34:10)

Attack of the Alligators - S1-E24

Audio problem: When Culp is walking from his boat to the window outside the laboratory, some dialogue from Dr Orchard describing the theramine process can be heard in the background. When we are in the laboratory, Dr Orchard describes the process with the same dialogue soundtrack.

Attack of the Alligators - S1-E24

Revealing mistake: When Gordon shoots the third giant alligator, you can see a bit of water jumping into the air at the very end of the shot, indicating that it was reversed footage.

Attack of the Alligators - S1-E24

Continuity mistake: When the giant alligator surrounds the house and starts to attack it, the pattern of its tail in a close-up is completely different to the pattern of the alligator as seen in a long-shot.

Attack of the Alligators - S1-E24

Continuity mistake: When Jeff and Virgil are talking about how to deal with the alligator situation at the house, Jeff says that Pod 6 would be the best choice. Yet when Thunderbird 2 arrives at the scene, it is not Pod 6 that has been chosen - it is Pod 4.
