This show uses an awful lot more one-off writers than I would have guessed. This one’s by Dan Berlinka, who writes the online CBBC tween show Dixi and has contributed to quite a few British kids’ programs, like Shaun the Sheep. It’s a search through an ancient pyramid, with all the traps and narrow escapes that you’d expect from something like this. Gordon, Lady Penelope, and Parker are stuck inside it, with an obnoxiously obvious villain declining to call for help.
Daniel had never seen anything like this before, and he watched with intense curiosity as the heroes looked for a way out of the tomb. He enjoyed it, but what he liked most was the introductory sequence, set five months before the action, when Thunderbird 2 unwittingly discovers the tomb. The vehicles are always going to win in a kids’ affection, you know.
