When Lady Penelope arrives in Nice, she instructs Bonson to wait in the Forest of Dean that night. However, the Forest of Dean is in Wiltshire, England, 722 miles away from Nice (in a straight line). This would be clearly impossible in the same day. | Errors in geography
When Lady Penelope arrives in Nice, she instructs Bondson to wait in the Forest of Dean that night. However, the Forest of Dean is in Wiltshire, England, 722 miles away from Nice (in a straight line). This would be clearly impossible in the same day. According to Fanderson (an official fan club for Gerry Anderson's programs), the correct spelling of the forest is 'Digne', not 'Dean' as originally submitted to this page. | Incorrectly regarded as goof
Official fan club verification - https://fanderson.org.uk/productions/thunderbirds-series-one/ Whoever had submitted the original goof must have assumed that D-E-A-N - not D-I-G-N-E - was the correct spelling. If this is declined a third (or fourth) time, I will file a complaint.
Well, here is the complaint.
Fanderson is a registered and official fan club of television programmes created and produced by Gerry Anderson, Thunderbirds being one of those shows.
The original goof that was submitted may have referred to a DVD subtitle indicating a setting as the "Forest of Dean".
The link in the comment refers to the spelling as "Digne"; please see below an extract from that page:
Penelope agrees to meet Bondson in the Forest of Digne, where he reveals that the stolen papers are plans for a nuclear device.
As the majority of the episode is set in southern France, this could possibly refer to a forest area located near the town of Digne-les-Bains, which is a more plausible location for that scene.
At this time I am waiting on the "Official Gerry Anderson" Facebook page to re-verify this information - https://www.facebook.com/GerryAndersonOfficial/posts/1914848098645421 - and I find it incredulous that you are not accepting an official fan club's entry for that episode as proof of this goof update.
