Lord Parker's 'Oliday - S2-E4

New this week Continuity mistake: When the Professor goes up to check on the solar reflector tower it collapses, and as it falls down the mountain the reflector's triangular center breaks off, but in the following shots it's perfectly intact for the episode's plot. (00:16:05)

Lord Parker's 'Oliday - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: When Thunderbird 2 leaves the hangar, the craft still has the old-style steering column. The column changes twice throughout the episode.

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.
