Default Beautiful little touch

Since we seem to be analysing Thunderbirds effects at the moment:
I was scrolling through the Thunderbirds episode 'Vault of Death' the other day and I reached the night scene when FAB 1 reaches Lovers Leap. when I noticed that the moon was partially obscured by cloud, which drifted away.

It's a tiny little thing, totally unnecessary to the plot but it's such a nice touch.

It just goes to show the dedication of the crew, just to go that little bit further

Agreed. The series was 'polished' in so many ways, way above the bare minimum necessary.

Its very clever stuff. Derek was obviously trying hard even as far back as the later Supercar eps. It was the little things that made the shows so brilliant
