TV Thundercloud (ITV 1979, Derek Waring, Sarah Douglas) Published 2 years ago on April 23, 2017 Written by Ian Mackintosh (who was normally at home with more action led fare such as Warship or The Sandbaggers) Thundercloud followed the exploits of a group of Naval men stationed in Yorkshire during World War II Although HMS Thundercloud is a small naval base on the Yorkshire coast, staff at the Admiralty are under the mistaken impression that “Thundercloud” is a minesweeper on active duty in the North Sea. As a result, they keep sending essential suppiles and spares. In best Will Hay meets Sgt Bilko style Dr Smith (Frank Gatliff) and Chief Petty Officer Hawkins (James Cosmo) make a fair bit on the side selling the supplies on the black market. Meanwhile, Commander Flint (Derek Waring) prefers to ignore the goings on at the base and concentrate on his garden. production details ITV – Yorkshire TV / 13×25 minute episodes / Broadcast 22 May – 31 July 1979 Tuesdays at 7.30pm Creator/Executive Producer: Ian Mackintosh / Producer: Keith Richardson cast John Fraser as Lt Cmdr Monty Morgan James Cosmo as CPO Hawkins Sarah Douglas as Bella Harrington Derek Waring as Cmdr Flint Frank Gatliff as Dr Smith Paul Aston as Ordinary Seaman Collins Derek WaringIan MackintoshJames CosmoKeith RichardsonSarah DouglasTV Advertisement advertisement and this just in Episodes9 hours ago Your Worst Nightmare: Behind the Barn (S5EP8 ID Sat 23 Feb 2019) Behind the Barn: When 20-year-old college student Kristy Ray is kidnapped from her home in rural Tippah County, Miss., in...
