    • TRIVIA (11)

      • In this episode, The Thompson Tower Controller is voiced by Matt Zimmerman. However, when the Assistant Controller closes off corridor C-14, the Controller asks "How are those fire tenders coming?" in a completely different voice provided by Ray Barrett.

      • As Virgil prepares to clear the wreckage of the tower from the rescue area using the Firefly, Scott tells him that he will go over to Thunderbird 2 to prepare the Mole for tunnelling. The Tower Controller then says to Scott "I've got a fast car for you ready outside" without moving his lips.

      • The car park is said to be four miles from the building, but when the fire is started by a car crash in this same car park, and the "main vent seal fails to operate," the fire goes straight up into the building.

      • Brains says that Virgil's increased blood pressure might be due him concentrating. However, he would have to concentrate extremely hard to do this and holding a blowtorch up to a wall would hardly take that much effort.

      • Jeff says to Scott that "We won't know the details until you investigate", but he sends TB2 before Scott gets there, so anything Scott had to report was useless as Jeff had already decided what to do.

      • Scott tells Virgil to stand back as he kicks a door in, but the door opened away from them, so Virgil couldn't have been injured.

      • As Virgil and Scott leave the Mole on their hoverbikes, their uniform sashes are over the wrong shoulder.

      • The Mole used here appears to be smaller than the one from "Pit of Peril" as in the latter episode, the vehicle exited the Pod scraping it's rear on the top edge of the door, but here it has plenty of clearance.

      • In all of his scenes in the cockpit of the Mole, Scott has two blue tubes in the holsters on his belt instead of the usual one blue and one yellow. Scott later regains the usual tubes while cutting through the fire doors.

      • As the woman driver crashes her car in the Thompson Tower car park, her husband can be seen being thrown clear of the car during the collision. However, he is shown leaving it seconds later.

      • Although Thompson Tower is situated in America, we see a sign on the wall saying 'centre' as opposed to the American 'center'.
