Synopsis: Gordon, Kayo and Virgil work to rescue a family trapped in a city overtaken by rising ocean tides.
Review: A family holiday goes awry when the Mechanics latest scheme knocks down the remnants of an underwater building on top of their submarine.
Thunderbird 2 is dispatched to both rescue the family and try and scupper the Mechanics latest scheme, which seemingly involves retrieving a safe from one of Lady Penelope’s old properties. Naturally FAB 1 comes into play as Lady P and Parker play a fun game of cat and mouse with the Mechanic.
From a story point of view. This one is a by the numbers episode, which has an A and a B story. The B story being the Mechanics foiled plans to steal the safe while the A story involves the rescue of the Sullivan family.
It was fun seeing Lady P and Parker back in action again and once more Parker’s criminal past proves useful when it comes to outwitting the mechanic.
The voice work was great, but by far the best feature of this episode was the underwater city, which was slowly revealed at the start of the episode.
That said the one downside is that the involvement of Lady P and Parker made Virgil and Kayo’s role in stopping the mechanic a little redundant. Though Kayo did play a pretty big role in helping Gordon rescue the family.
