Thunderbirds

Terror in New York City - S1-E13

Continuity mistake: Watch the time on the clock on the wall in the USN Sentinel during the missile attack. At the start of the attack it's 12.45pm, but later on it changes to 1.05pm, and when Washington informs the Sentinel Commander to stop the attack, it's now 1.35pm.

City of Fire - S1-E3

Vault of Death - S1-E7

Continuity mistake: When Virgil is seating at the cockpit during the launch sequence of Thunderbird 2, he is wearing the clothes he wears on Tracy Island and his International Rescue costume appears. But when Alan comes down the lift, Virgil has suddenly changed into his IR costume.

Trapped in the Sky - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When the Hood is taking photographs inside Thunderbird 1, we see a close-up of his hat. On the hat, it says "Airport Police" on the lens, but when we see a full view of the Hood, the words are no longer visible.

Terror in New York City - S1-E13

Continuity mistake: During the missile attack on Thunderbird 2, Virgil says "Missiles!" in the cockpit and his forehead can be seen to have sweat on it, but after a quick shot of the missiles flying through the air, we cut to Virgil again and the sweat has disappeared.

Move - And You're Dead - S1-E9

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.

The Perils Of Penelope - S1-E12

Continuity mistake: As it bears down on Penelope's perilous position, the leading car on the Anderbad Express monotrain keeps changing colour, from white and red to silver and blue.

Desparate Intruder - S1-E17

Continuity mistake: When Brains falls under The Hood's influence, he collapses, and between shots his glasses simply disappear. They are subsequently shown to have fallen off, but the action is not seen on screen: one moment the glasses are on his face and the next they have vanished.

The Mighty Atom - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: The Mighty Atom is brown but changes to gray in closeups.

Dr Wilson

Move - And You're Dead - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: When Jeff Tracey is first contacted by Alan, he is sat behind his desk, but when the picture cuts back to him after a quick shot of Alan, he is suddenly perched on the front of the desk reading a magazine.

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)

Trapped in the Sky - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When Bob Meddings boards the Fireflash and grabs hold of the pipe, the pipe is red both in a long-shot and a shot of him grabbing hold of it. When we see Meddings moving his hands along the pipe, it is now silver.

Move - And You're Dead - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: When we first see Alan in his racing car, a close-up shot shows the steering wheel on the left-hand side. However, the miniature model used for the distance shots shows the steering wheel on the right.

Move - And You're Dead - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: In a close-up of Victor Gomez' racing car, he has a very large number 7 behind the driver's position. But the miniature model used for the distant shot has only a small white number 7 on the door.

The Perils Of Penelope - S1-E12

Continuity mistake: When Lady Penelope is at the café in Paris with Sir Jeremy Hodge, she orders a Pernod. When the waiter delivers the drinks, there is a clear coloured liquid on the tray. As soon as the waiter leaves, Lady Penelope is holding the white coloured Pernod.

Cry Wolf - S1-E21

Continuity mistake: When Tony and Bob are trapped at the bottom of the mine, Bob is trying to free himself from the plank of wood resting on him and you can see there is a square pole on the plank. The pole changes position between shots.

Edge of Impact - S1-E16

Continuity mistake: Before Jeff pushes the button on his desk to activate Operation Cover-Up, you can see there is a dark blue line around the edge of his sleeve, but in a close-up of him pushing the button, the line has disappeared. It reappears in the very next shot.

City of Fire - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: When the Thompson Tower collapses, Blanche asks Joe what are they going to do and you can see she is holding a handkerchief in her right hand. But in a full view of the family a few shots later, Blanche's handkerchief is nowhere to be seen.
