The Time Warrior - S11-E1

Revealing mistake: The explosion of Irongrond's castle is obviously stock footage of a quarry explosion.

The Ark in Space - S12-E2

Revealing mistake: As the cast move through the transom of the space station, observe the starscape through the lower windows. At certain points you can see a thin strip of light where the black curtain used for the stellar backdrop meets the studio floor.

Planet of the Daleks - S10-E4

Visible crew/equipment: At various points in the story, the pots for the plants of the Spiridin jungle are visible. Episode two has a couple of noticeable moments, when Codal is captured and when the Doctor is led away by the Daleks.

Continuity mistake: When Wester - an invisible spiridon - is treating Joe's arm, his shadow can be seen.

City of Death - S17-E2

Revealing mistake: In episode one, Scaroth's 'Jagaroth skin' on his wrist flaps about. Either that's a badly fitting piece of costume...or he's suffering from severely peeling skin.

The Mark of the Rani - S22-E3

Plot hole: Peri goes to a fair bit of trouble to bolt the door on the bath house when rescuing the Doctor. But when the Rani and the Master arrive, they simply open the door. Now this, in itself, isn't a mistake, as the Master has a special gadget for opening locked/bolted doors, yet both The Master and The Rani seem surprised that someone is in the bath house.

The Three Doctors - S10-E1

Visible crew/equipment: You can see the reflections of the camera crew in the monitor used to display the First Doctor (William Hartnell). (This is especially noticeable in episodes 2 and 4).

The Three Doctors - S10-E1

Revealing mistake: At various times (especially in episodes 3 and 4) you can see actor Stephen Thorne's lips through Omega's mask (and in one profile shot you can also see his jaw), yet when his mask is removed, we find that Omega has been dissipated and has no face...

The Curse of Fenric - S26-E3

Factual error: During WW II there would not have been any road signs like the one in the story indicating the way to Maiden's Point: all such signposts were taken down during the war, to hinder the enemy in the event of an invasion.

The Moonbase - S4-E6

Revealing mistake: The doors and walls wobble badly as Jamie and Ben barricade the entrance to the medical unit.

The Ribos Operation - S16-E1

Deliberate mistake: The shot of rocks falling in episode four is used twice - once when Unstoffe is shot, once after the captain fires the cannon.

Add time

The Faceless Ones - S4-E8

Visible crew/equipment: Near the end of episode 3 the inspector is on the plane and just before he goes to look for Captain Blade the camera zooms out and the top of the set is visible.

Image of the Fendahl - S15-E3

Other mistake: Several shots are repeated during the implosion of the priory.

The Hand of Fear - S14-E2

Visible crew/equipment: After Rokon's message in episode four, Eldra starts ranting and raving. A BBC camera can be seen in the doorway behind the Doctor and Sarah.

Add time

The Sensorites - S1-E7

Other mistake: In episode one, when the crew wonders what the Sensorites will do them, the camera zooms in on the Doctor as he says, "or kill us?". It then jerks with an audible click as though hitting something.

Add time

Planet of the Daleks - S10-E4

Continuity mistake: In episode five, Jo's hairstyle changes. She has one hairstyle in the bulk of the episode, which was filmed in the studio. And a different one during the "Plain of Stones" scenes, which were shot on location.
