The brand new seventeenth series of Thomas & Friends marks its world premiere on Channel 5 milkshake! in the UK on June 3rd 2013 with the episode, Kevin's Cranky Friend.


  1. Sounds good, but the episode with Henry and Hero sounds like a rewrite of the last episode. Henry doesn't need special coal any more, doesn't Hit Entertainment know that?

    1. It might just be bad coal like in 'Out of Puff' there's not even a mention of special coal anywhere in the description

  2. Nice to see the narrow gauge being featured

  3. Really looking forward to Lukes new friend and the switch

  4. This ought to be interesting indeed, especially for the second week of airing :D
