Thunderbirds Are Go Cast

While investigating a factory once linked to the Hood, Lady Penelope, Parker and Biscuit find a huge tunnel dug in the floor that leads deep underground; they also detect a Morse Code SOS from a talkative plumber named Horse Williams, who became trapped when the floor of the sub-basement in which he was working collapsed into the tunnel. Lady Penelope contacts International Rescue for help, and as Virgil and Gordon take off in Thunderbird 2, she and Parker fly FAB down into the tunnel. After Thunderbird 2 arrives at the factory, Virgil dons a power suit and accompanies Gordon in an Explorer Pod; together they drive into the tunnel and join Penelope and Parker, who have located Horse, trapped amongst the rubble of a cave-in. Virgil and Gordon clear enough of the debris for FAB 1 to get through, allowing Penelope and Parker to continue their way while they work on digging through to Horse. Monitoring the situation up in Thunderbird 5, John is able to extrapolate the tunnel’s destination: Parkmoor Scrubs – the Mechanic is planning a prison break for the Hood! The GDF are advised of the situation, but when Colonel Casey and her men attempt to check the Hood, they find that he has locked them out of his cell; they also learn that the villain has a cybernetic eye, which he has been using to contact the Mechanic all along. Casey and her team are forced to retreat as the Mechanic’s massive burrowing vehicle drills up from below and swallows the Hood’s cell; the colossal vehicle then retreats back down the tunnel – and FAB 1, Virgil, Gordon and Horse are right in its path…
