The ATAC might as well be labelled "MacGuffin"

Re: AJB live commentary on FOR YOUR EYES ONLY

The St. Georges scene, with its nautical flavour and old fashioned WWII mine give me something of the flavour of an Alistair Maclean thriller. I really like it.

Re: AJB live commentary on FOR YOUR EYES ONLY

The sinking of the St George is the most harrowing of the series' doomed crew sequences. Edgier in its realism even than the fate of The Devonshire crew in TND.

Critics and material I don't need. I haven't changed my act in 49 years.

Looks amazing in person too.

This is Thunderbird 2, how can I be of assistance?

It’s a miniature! The sinking St George’s.  My Gods, Mr Meddings was a master of the trade.

Geoffrey Keen holding the fort, and Gogol providing some more welcome familiarity.

Re: AJB live commentary on FOR YOUR EYES ONLY

There was "mine reports" on the radio decades after WWII ended. "a floating mine is observed just north of Stadt."

The Havelock family are presented in a Flemingesque way.

Critics and material I don't need. I haven't changed my act in 49 years.

Re: AJB live commentary on FOR YOUR EYES ONLY

Plenty of Fleming in this movie- here, the Havelocks being killed by Gonzales is adapted from the FYEO story

Not Nikki doing the dubbing!

Re: AJB live commentary on FOR YOUR EYES ONLY

Gonzales is a more than adequately despicable sub-villain.

Agreed... the abrupt cut, and later the corpses floating about.. dramatic and creepy.

Re: AJB live commentary on FOR YOUR EYES ONLY

Sir Timothy Havelock, played by Jack Hedley. A very good British character actor who I've seen in many things over the years. Besides FYEO I remember him best for a guest role in one of my favourite episodes of Only Fools and Horses.

Although Carole Bouquet's intonations and inflections often seem to follow Nikki's...

"Sir Havelock's daughter"??? It's "Sir Timothy's daughter"!!
