V (1984)

The Betrayal - S2-E12

Deliberate mistake: The shot of Willy running away from the parked car is taken from the episode where Elias is killed. Two things give this away - 1) Willy is wearing a different coloured jacket and 2) he is supposed to be seriously injured yet he sprints along the street. (00:08:50)

The Conversion - S2-E10

Deliberate mistake: The shot of the mothership landing bay and the arrival of Charles' ship is stock footage that has been used several times before. There is also a continuity error here - the view from the landing bay shows darkness outside, but the next shot shows broad daylight. (00:06:20)

V (1984)

Reflections in Terror - S2-E9

Deliberate mistake: The shot of the cocoon gestating is taken from episode 2. This is evident because there is sand underneath it and rocks in the background, but when the tracker finds it later, there are no rocks and sand in the tunnel. (00:25:30)

Genesis of the Daleks - S12-E4

Deliberate mistake: Chief of Security Nyder wears an iron cross on his uniform which mysteriously disappears in episode 3 - apparently the producers felt it was too close a reference to Nazism so it was removed from the show. (Source: DVD commentary).

Doctor Who (1963)

Destiny of the Daleks - S17-E1

Deliberate mistake: The shot of the alien spacecraft flying in the sky is the same in episode 4 as in episode 1, only it's reversed. The taking off and landing are the same too, except smoke and rubble have been added.

Deliberate mistake: When the two Confederate and Union soldiers meet across the river and trade coffee/tobacco, you can see the other side of the bank behind them. It looks at least 50 feet away, yet before they were able to talk to each other without shouting. Also, the Union soldier raises the pipe to his mouth in his right hand, which switches to his left in the next shot. There is also a mist present at the beginning and end of the meeting, but not in the middle. (00:37:55)

Deliberate mistake: The same shot of the railway station concourse is used when Graham and George are heading to work, and also when George commits suicide. The giveaway is that several people are seen in the same position. (00:05:00 - 01:20:30)

A.P.E.X. (1994)

Deliberate mistake: When the recon team head out of the base they encounter a robot. But it is a probe droid, distinguishable by the lack of a cannon on its right arm. The only probe droid that the lab sent out self-destructed back in the 1970s, the rest were all sterilisation units. (00:39:05)

Saturn 3 (1980)

Deliberate mistake: When Adam kills himself and Hector at the end, the explosion sends a lot of water and parts of Hector into the air. But there is no sign of Adam's blood, body parts or clothing, despite the fact that the bomb was strapped to him. (01:16:10)
