For those of you that don’t know, every week I have been writing in-depth reviews of each episode of the original Thunderbirds series. During these reviews I have been closely studying what appears on screen and highlighting bits and pieces which point to how the episode was produced, and which parts worked well or didn’t work so well. Part of that process has involved analysing one aspect in particular which relates to the first eleven episodes to go into production.
Alan’s off to the races this week in an episode full of high-speed action and a very unusual plot structure. All this and the ability for a puppet to stand still is pushed to the limit!
