“We'd be better going the other way around where it's more spacious."
"But that's where the old mine shafts are, Monty. The ground isn't safe. You might be too heavy."
"Huh! And how would you know?"
"I'm a tunnel boring machine!"
"Exactly! You're boring!”
―Monty, Darcy and Max

Deep Trouble is the eighteenth episode of the twenty-third series.

Plot

Max and Monty's antics on a construction site get them into trouble when they ignore the danger warning signs and Monty falls down a mineshaft. Now Max must rely on Darcy (whom the two have teased beforehand) to rescue him.

Goofs

  • In the aerial shot before Miss Jenny climbs into Max, some of the danger barriers which had previously been knocked over are missing. In the next aerial shot, they have reappeared.
  • In the fantasy sequence, Monty's lights are on and he is clean, but outside of it, he is dirty and his lights are off after falling down the mineshaft.
  • Darcy's body is lifted slightly off her treads when Miss Jenny says "Right everyone, to work!" In the same shot, Max and Monty's wheels have moved slightly before they reverse.
  • Shane Jacobson was not credited in the UK end credits for voicing Shane.
  • While Thomas is taking Jack and Alfie along his branch line, Thomas' flatbed has rails on it, but when they arrive at the mines, the rails are gone.
  • When Max says "Wait your turn, Monty!", their dumping loads turn dark brown, but in the next scene, they turn grey again.
  • When Darcy and Monty emerge from the mineshaft, they both slide slightly to the left.
