Trivia

This episodes, and "Attack of the Alligators!", feature the full Thunderbird 4 launch sequence shown from inside Pod 4. In other episodes featuring Thunderbird 4, we have only seen Thunderbird 4 emerging down the ramp from outside the pod door. "The Man from MI.5" is the only episode in which Thunderbird 2 gently rests the pod on the surface of the water and then rises clear of the pod with lifting jets, whereas "Attack of the Alligators" shows Thunderbird 2 lifting from the pod several minutes after landing. Normally, the pod is simply dropped on to the water. See more »

Goofs

When Lady Penelope arrives in Nice, she instructs Bonson to wait in the Forest of Dean that night. However, the Forest of Dean is in Wiltshire, England, 722 miles away from Nice (in a straight line). This would be clearly impossible in the same day. See more »
