Audio problem: If you listen carefully to the soundtrack of part four of "The Moonbase", some 'chatter' and 'feedback' from the floor manager's headphones can be heard. (At the time this particular episode was recorded, there was just a one-week gap between recording Doctor Who and transmission, so there was no time available to re-record the episode, and this mistake had to be left in).
Audio problem: All of the scenes of the trial have some sort of sound problems. Among other things, sound bites from earlier on appear from seemingly nowhere, and, if you listen carefully, you can hear someone calling out the cue "Take 6", which should have been edited out quite easily, but wasn't.
Audio problem: When the Doctor arrives at UNIT HQ in his stolen car, he speaks to a guard. We see close ups of the guard twice...but watch the brief clip of the Doctor (Jon Pertwee) between the two and you can just see that his lips aren't moving even remotely in synch with the words. (In fact, it is just a repeat of the previous shot of the Doctor, with new lines dubbed in).
Revealing mistake: (Part 4) After Omega takes off his mask and looks in the mirror, when he sees that his physical body doesn't exist he puts his mask back on and screams, but when he shouts, "If I exist only by my will, then my will is to destroy," Omega's mask pops up off his face, and we can see the actor's blackened face as he shouts the last bit of his dialogue.
