Gordon and Spencer is the twenty-third episode of the seventh season.

Plot

Gordon is gloating about taking the Duke and Duchess of Boxford to a special reception at Maron, but on the way, he is diverted to let a sleek silver engine pass. Gordon later discovers the engine, Spencer, will be taking the Duke and Duchess and advises him to take on water, but Spencer ignores him and as a result runs out of steam on Gordon's Hill. Gordon goes to the rescue and at Maron is lauded by the Fat Controller.

Characters

Locations

Trivia

  • Stock footage from Saved from Scrap, Time for Trouble, Thomas the Jet Engine, and Peace and Quiet is used.
  • This episode may have been filmed alongside Edward's Brass Band, as Edward can be seen at Wellsworth yards looking miserable. It may have also been filmed alongside Peace and Quiet, as in a deleted scene, Gordon and Clarabel were in the same positions as they were in this episode.
  • Spencer pulls one coach throughout the episode. However, a deleted scene shows him pulling two coaches.

Goofs

  • When Spencer leaves the shed he speeds up upon starting off, but steam engines start off slowly.
  • Due to the use of stock footage, when Gordon whistles after being coupled to Spencer, the whistle shown is Edward's.
  • Spencer runs out of water, but still blows steam and for a few seconds, his driving wheels are moving faster than he is.
  • Spencer's driver should have made him stop for water.
  • When Spencer races past Thomas and Gordon at Wellsworth, he is heading west. Later however, when Gordon sets off to rescue him, he goes to the east and still catches up with Spencer.
  • When Gordon arrives at the shed, the lining on his piston is peeling off.

Quotes

  • Gordon: Don't forget the water!
  • Spencer: Who cares?
  • Thomas: He'll be in trouble soon.
  • Thomas: What do you think of Spencer now?
  • James: Too much puff and not enough steam!
