Now this is much much more than just an extended episode of the great Thunderbirds TV series...yes there are rescues and intrigues galore but there are two touches of genius present... 1) the superb Zero-X with its lifing bodies, Martian Exploration Vehicle and even the sleek nose cone showed the model making skiils of the team at their best ( the coming together of the sections before launch and the Martian surface sequences are just brilliant ) 2) Putting Cliff Richard (Junior!) and The Shadows into this film was the icing on the cake with the haunting "Lady Penelope" track by The Shadows being one of my all-time favourite tracks. Yes I did watch this as a child in the cinema but it still works for me now.
