Doctor Who

The Three Doctors - S10-E1

New this month Audio problem: In Part 3 when the Brigadier gets behind the sand pile with Arthur Ollis, the Brigadier asks him "Did you find a way in?" This is not Nicholas Courtney's voice for this one line. He speaks again right after that and it is his voice.

The Moonbase - S4-E6

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).

The Claws of Axos - S8-E3

Audio problem: When Chinn tells the Brigadier of his agreement with the Axons, the movement of the actors around the set causes various loud wooden clumping sounds that are rather inappropriate for the organic interior of Axos.

The Happiness Patrol - S25-E2

Audio problem: In episode 2 of "The Happiness Patrol" the Kandyman's microphone picks up quite a bit of The Doctor's dialogue by accident.

Spearhead From Space - S7-E1

Audio problem: In episode 3, when the dog is barking at Sam's house and is abruptly silenced (apparently by an Auton), the sound is obviously not a dog barking. It sounds a bit like a man pretending to be a dog, and going "woof woof" not very convincingly.

The Trial of a Time Lord 13-14 (aka The Ultimate Foe) - S23-E4

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.

Spearhead From Space - S7-E1

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).

Spearhead From Space - S7-E1

Audio problem: The music accompanying the closing credits fades down part way through (at a different point in each of the four episodes) and simultaneously fades up at a different point, the net result being a rather disjointed-sounding edit.

Robot - S12-E1

Audio problem: When the Doctor chops a brick in half, you can tell that the brick is really made from balsa wood by listening to the sound it makes when it hits the ground.

The Three Doctors - S10-E1

Audio problem: When the companions are returning to Earth via the pillar of smoke, you can see and hear each person walk up the steps and then supposedly disappear. Unfortunately, you can then hear them walk down the other side of the steps..

The Enemy of the World - S5-E4

Audio problem: In episode 3 of this story it is noticeable that practically every sound in this episode has been re-dubbed and as a result is out of synch - sometimes quite badly. An example is when Milton Johns has his thugs break into Giles Kent's trailer - there's a three-second lag between the breaking of the plates and the sounds they make. (This may be simply due to the only surviving copies in the BBC Archives being these "badly dubbed" ones, recovered from obscure sources).

Inferno - S7-E4

Audio problem: In episode 3, when the Doctor is squaring off against the drooling madman, it's clear in most of the shots that the sound of the madman's panting is not reflected in his facial and body movements.

The Caves of Androzani - S21-E6

The Moonbase - S4-E6

Audio problem: In part 4, when the cybermen are outside the moonbase controlling the workers, the mouth of the radio operator does not move when he is speaking to them. Furthermore, a few of the cybermen's mouths outside the moonbase are stuck open when they have no dialogue.

Quotes

The Doctor: You can't rule the world in hiding. You've got to come out on the balcony sometimes and wave a tentacle or two.

Mistakes

At the climax of episode 2, the Doctor is about to catch Lupton when the latter simply teleports to safety. So why didn't he do that in first place - before engaging in a 15-minute chase.

Trivia

The first thing the Third Doctor does on-screen is collapse out of the TARDIS, which is also the last thing he does in that incarnation.
