The latest story featuring the Thunderbirds happens to take place on Virgil's birthday, and he's worried everyone has forgotten it.
'Breakdown', written by Benjamin Townshend, is very much a Virgil episode with Thunderbird 2 taking centre stage.
The action takes place somewhere near the northern Arctic Circle. A member of a scientific expedition manages to call International Rescue from an emergency beacon on the ice. Suffering from hyperthermia and exhaustion, all he can say is "Breakdown! ".
I must say, I really enjoyed this episode. It featured a proper rescue that didn't involve anyone associated with International Rescue. Virgil took control of a situation that wasn't all that it seemed, and the ending, without giving too much away should make everyone smile.
Even Torchy gets a name check!
