Here is the latest tease for Thunderbirds Are Go (2015). This time we have the hood looking at the International Rescue team and paying particular attention to John Tracy and Thunderbird 5.

On the video you’re hear the Hood say “International Rescue, soon you will be in my hands. John Tracy and Thunderbird 5, you are the eyes and ears of the operation but not even your technology can see through my disguises”. This is, of course followed by an evil laugh…

The Hood in the original 1960’s series was often disguised with a flexible face mask and only appeared something like six times. He also tended to use the video calling street boxes in voice only mode, very cunning!

In this Thunderbirds Are Go (2015) the Hood will have a bigger role? Gerry and Sylvia Anderson feelings for the original was that other characters where better on the screen. Mind you he is still very much part of what people remember of Thunderbirds and he certainly is a good way to explain a secret organisation.

We can only assume the room the Hood is in is this series version of his temple room. It is a large room with a giant rug, just like I have in my bedroom, only mine is just three foot wide. Come to think about it his rug also has the same tassels, only his are so much bigger!
