Thunderbirds Are Go Cast

When Virgil and Alan in Thunderbird 2 help save some miners trapped under a landslide in the Quetaka mountains, they inadvertently uncover the ancient Pyramid of the Laughing King. Five months later, Lady Penelope and Parker join Professor Harold at the excavation site of the thousand-year old temple. Penelope has been sent as a Monitor for the World Heritage Society, who suspect the professor of stealing valuable treasures from his last dig. Parker is worried about the supposed curse of the Quetaka Indian King, and calls on International Rescue for help; Gordon answers the call, much to Lady Penelope’s annoyance. Entering the Pyramid’s main tunnel, Gordon runs an electromagnetic spectrum sweep and detects large quantities of gold and silver, a discovery that great pleases the greedy Professor Harold. After finding a switch that reveals a secret passageway, the party make their way deeper into the Pyramid; but then a heavy wall slams down between them, trapping Penelope, Parker and Gordon inside. The trio’s only option is to make their way through the temple’s tunnels in the hope of finding a way out – but the Pyramid of the Laughing King is filled with deadly traps…
