Continuity mistake: When Sarah-Jane is sitting on the floor inside the transparent tube and the two gold-trimmed mummies/guardians appear in the background, you can see the dust on the surface of the tube change noticeably as the fade occurs.

Visible crew/equipment: In episode 4, look out for the legendary "Hand of Sutekh" - a hand (presumably that of a member of the crew) holding the cushion down in the scene where Sutekh stands up.

Plot hole: It is never explained why so much of the story takes place in England. All of the equipment for Sutekh's rocket comes from his tomb and could just as easily - probably more easily - have been set up right there in Egypt. And at the end, instead of just walking out of his tomb, he takes the spatial corridor to England just so he can get caught in the Doctor's trap.

Factual error: The Doctor states that the radio waves take two minutes to get from Mars to Earth. The time interval can vary dramatically depending on where the two planets are in their orbit. But at absolute closest approach, Mars is just over three light minutes from Earth.

Continuity mistake: In the first minute of episode three, one of the evil robot mummies attacks Sarah-Jane Smith. In doing so, it lunges forward, misses Sara-Jane, and smashes the "Marconiscope" device, which explodes in flames. However, seconds later, the 'Marconiscope' device is still visible in the next shot, but totally undamaged.

Plot hole: Why is the warning about Sutekh broadcast in English? (It clearly is as the Doctor identifies three E's in the transcript).

Continuity mistake: In episode 3, when the Doctor leaves the old house to find the dynamite, you can see his hat resting on a chair as he walks out the door. Immediately afterwards you see him walking through the woods with Sarah, and see that the hat has magically relocated itself to being back on his head again. And when he eventually gets back to the cottage, the hat is there, still in the chair as if nothing had happened.
