Thunderbirds Are Go Cast

International Rescue is overloaded with missions, so when Professor Quentin Questa contacts John with his annual warning concerning an Icelandic volcano about to blow, his warnings are received with some scepticism. Adamant that his claims are correct, the professor invokes a scientific sacred vow that Brains has no choice but to accept. Scott gives Brains and Max a lift in Thunderbird 1, dropping them off in a RAD ball at the volcano’s base; Brains soon locates the professor’s campsite, and Max falls in love with Questa’s robot, Fritzie. When Brains’ thermal imaging device shows no volcanic activity, the professor takes him inside the volcano; seeing the seething mass of molten lava within, Brains realises that the rare earth minerals in the area have been blocking his scans – the professor was right all along! Questa and Brains contact the local hot springs resort and warn them of the imminent eruption, but the staff refuse to listen. With the volcano about to explode, Brains and the professor must find a way to re-route the lava flow…
