The Sontaran Experiment - S12-E3

Continuity mistake: In Episode 2, when the Doctor calls Harry from the Control Room and Harry enters the room next to the Cryogenic Chamber, there is an oblong yellow panel next to the door. It extends from about Harry's waist line to about 200mm below the top of the door. But in Episode 3, when Noah calls Vira from the control room part way into his transformation, and everyone runs into the adjacent room, the panel is mounted differently. It now extends from about Harry's mid-torso, to the top of the door frame. (00:03:35 - 00:09:32)

Planet of Giants - S2-E1

Trivia: This Doctor Who story was originally scripted and produced as a four-episode story, but, just two weeks before transmission, upon viewing the story, co-creators Sydney Newman and Donald Wilson felt that the final two episodes (Episode 3, 'Crisis'; and Episode 4, 'The Urge to Live') should be combined into a single episode. The new 'condensed' episode incorporated the opening titles of 'Crisis' with the closing credits of 'The Urge to Live'.

Earthshock - S19-E6

Question: In Earthshock, season 19, at the end of episode 3, the Cyber Leader views his troops marching down the corridor. Each column is headed by a Cyber Leader. Is this a mistake, or is there more than one Cyber Leader allowed per army?

Answer: In 'The Five Doctors', three separate Cyberleaders are definitely used. So it's likely that Cyberleaders are like unit commanders, of which a fair-sized army might have several.
