Thunderbirds

The Mighty Atom - S1-E6

Factual error: An edition of the 'Melbourne Herald' newspaper can be seen in this episode, and appears to be dated Friday, December 24, 1964. Yet 'Thunderbirds' is supposed to be set in the 21st Century (2026 or 2065, depending on who you believe). This date is also seen on newspapers which appear in the episodes 'Edge Of Impact', 'The Impostors' and 'Cry Wolf'. Also, to compound the error, December 24th, 1964 was actually a Thursday, not a Friday.

Vault of Death - S1-E7

Factual error: In the Tube, Virgin and Allan are seen going from Piccadilly Circus station to Bank station using the same tunnel. These two stations are not even on the same line.

Dr Wilson

City of Fire - S1-E3

Factual error: Although the Thompson Tower is situated in the United States, a sign on the wall of the Control Centre uses the British spelling of 'Centre' instead of the American 'Center'.

30 Minutes After Noon - S1-E18

Factual error: On the night of the Hudson Building fire, the Auto Date Fixer in Commissioner Garfield's office reads 12/7/65. The next day, it reads 13/7/65, illustrating attention to detail on the part of the set decorator. Unfortunately, this overlooks the American convention for the month numeral to appear first. In the US the convention is month/day/year, in the UK the convention is day/month/year. So,either the first date should read 7/12/65 (July 12th) with the next day as 7/13/65, or the second date should read 12/8/65 (December 8th).
