"It will be a great disaster!"
— Bruno

"Lord Parker's 'Oliday" is the fourth episode of Thunderbirds season 2, first broadcast on 23rd October 1966.

PlotEdit

While Lady Penelope and Parker are on holiday at the world's first solar-powered town, a massive storm knocks the generator's reflector down the mountain. It lands in such a position that the suns rays will be reflected towards the town and destroy it when the sun rises. While Parker distracts the population, Brains works to move the reflector to a safe orientation.

TriviaEdit

  • FAB 1 is revealed to have a set of hydrofoils, and can travel over the ocean. Whether or not the fitting was required after Parker gambled away FAB 2 in The Man From MI.5 is never confirmed.
    • This is to say nothing of the fact Lady Penelope appears to be quite confident driving FAB 1 on her own, considering her previous driving skills (or lack thereof) displayed in Vault Of Death.
  • The jetty set was also used in Thunderbirds Are Go, during the part where Parker chases The Hood. Also used is the cubic base part of the solar generator tower - as one of the buildings in the town of Craigsville - it can be seen within seconds of Zero X crashing into the town.
  • The wall rug previously seen hanging in Creighton-Ward Mansion's drawing room has moved to the corridor outside Lady Penelope's bedroom.
  • As part of the half-hour "cliffhanger" package, the first instalment concludes when Thunderbird 1 launches and subsequently changes to horizontal flight mode.
  • Mitchell, Professor Lundgren's assistant, was previously seen as Captain Ashton in Alias Mr. Hackenbacker.
  • It appears that Senor Faccini has hired Cass Carnaby to perform at his hotel, as the pianist is seen in a brief clip lifted from The Cham-Cham.
  • The music that plays on FAB 1's radio is 'Blues Pacifica' from the Stingray episode Tune of Danger.
  • The solar collector's control panel looks almost identical to that of the TARDIS console used in the production era.

GoofsEdit

  • When Thunderbird 2 leaves the hangar, it still has the old stile steering column. It changes twice through-out the episode.
