The Dalek Invasion of Earth - S2-E2

Other mistake: Ian has completely forgotten the distinctive shape of a Dalek. It's only when the Dalek starts speaking that Ian says to the Doctor, "that voice". Yet later when they are at the saucer, he talks to the Doctor about the new back of the Dalek having a disk on them now.

Factual error: The Doctor states that the Daleks invaded Earth because it is the only planet with a magnetic core. In fact, every planet in the solar system has a magnetic core.

Revealing mistake: In episode 1, one of the windows on the TARDIS is leaning in, but by the time we get to episode 6 it has managed to fix itself. Also when the bridge falls down you can see the poster through the gap, showing that there is no back to the TARDIS.

Visible crew/equipment: When the Doctor and Ian are talking about the discs on the Daleks' backs, you can see a female crewmember behind the robomen, standing there and then walking off, and then another crewmember in a white shirt dart past the robomen.

Visible crew/equipment: Just before Dortman leaves to test out his bomb, he comes towards the camera. When he's doing this, look at the right side of the screen - you can see a crewmember's shadow. It can't be Barbara or Jenny because they then enter from the left.
