Doctor Who

100,000 BC - S1-E1

Character mistake: When Ian is trying to escape from the TARDIS in episode 1, he says, "He closed the door from over there, I saw him." It was in fact Susan who closed the door.

The Claws of Axos - S8-E3

Character mistake: The Doctor gets Jo to do some mathematics to distract her. At one point she says "49 x 2=88", when it actually equals 98, then she says that "adding 10 equals 108". (In other words, Jo (Katy Manning) fluffed her line, got one figure wrong, then went back to script...).

The Wheel in Space - S5-E7

Character mistake: The Doctor (Patrick Troughton) makes one of the funniest fluffed lines in the entire history of Doctor Who in the final episode. With all sincerity he says "We'll all be dead soon, unless you switch over to the sexual air supply." (The word Troughton was probably looking for was "sectional.").

Remembrance of the Daleks - S25-E1

Character mistake: The gate to I.M. Foreman's scrapyard reads "I.M. Forman."
