Earthshock - S19-E6

Factual error: As the spaceship approaches the Earth of 65 million years ago, the Earth looks very much like the present day one. Hasn't anyone heard of "continental drift"? The Earth's land masses of 65 million years ago were not where they are now. (This has been fixed on the DVD)

The Pirate Planet - S16-E2

Factual error: While gravitational forces can be "balanced" between planets at very specific points, the notion of balancing them completely to cancel each other out everywhere, as depicted in the Captain's trophy room, is nonsense.

The Pirate Planet - S16-E2

Revealing mistake: The queen, suspended in the last few moments of life, can be seen to breathe rapidly and blink.

The Ribos Operation - S16-E1

Matty W

Genesis of the Daleks - S12-E4

Continuity mistake: When Sarah falls from the scaffolding, a plank of wood saves her from death. Trouble is, she fell a foot from the outside of the scaffolding and most of the plank was inside the scaffolding, therefore her feet would have hit it and she could only have landed with her head pointing inwards. But when we see her, her head is pointing outwards.

The Caves of Androzani - S21-E6

Revealing mistake: It's already been mentioned that Peri bounces off a mattress, but watch what happens when the Doctor walks over to see if she's all right. The 'cave' floor visibly moves under his foot.

Resurrection of the Daleks - S21-E4

Revealing mistake: When Lytton and his men approach the self-destruct chamber in episode three, the door is closed in front of them. It wobbles as it closes.

Visible crew/equipment: As the Daleks plan to release bacteria into the atmosphere, a crew member is reflected in the glass box containing the bacteria.

Add time

Nightmare of Eden - S17-E4

The Mark of the Rani - S22-E3

Continuity mistake: The amount of dirt on the Doctor's face changes between the Bath House and the exterior filming.

Add time

The Creature from the Pit - S17-E3

Revealing mistake: Torvin, stunned by K9, turns before falling, as if looking for somewhere comfortable to land; and the guard who goes to attack K9 and Romana acts very strangely: he stops and curls up before K9's blast hits him, almost as if he knows what is going to happen next.

Add time

The Happiness Patrol - S25-E2

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