Season 2 generally

Trivia: There were a lot of changes to the show throughout the second season. Not only was Virgil "re-cast" with both a new head and voice actor (Jeremy Wilkin), but smaller, more lifelike puppet hands were crafted on the marionettes, and the inside of Tracy Island and the Thunderbird crafts were completely redone.

Trivia: Throughout the second series there were three 'guest' voice artists: John Tate, Paul Maxwell and Charles Tingwell. Tate had previously voiced Solarnaut Camp in the episode 'Sun Probe' in the first series, whilst Maxwell and Tingwell would appear in the next Gerry Anderson creation 'Captain Scarlet & The Mysterons' as the voices of Captain Grey and Dr Fawn, respectively. None of these artists were credited in the end titles.

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.
