Doctor Who

The Green Death - S10-E5

Revealing mistake: When Benton jumps over the maggots to get into the cave the Professor and Jo are hiding in, the jump causes the floor to move, giving away the fact that the floor is wood covered by a small amount of gravel.

The Dalek Invasion of Earth - S2-E2

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.

Genesis of the Daleks - S12-E4

Continuity mistake: At the very beginning, Sarah comments to the Doctor that they haven't returned to "the beacon". But when they were last on Nerva - in Ark in Space - it was referred to as a space station. It doesn't become Nerva beacon until the next episode.

The Monster of Peladon - S11-E4

Revealing mistake: At the end of episode 2 / beginning of episode 3, the Doctor and Sarah are thrown into a pit. It is quite obvious that they hit a flexible mat when they land. it is gone when they stand up.

Pyramids of Mars - S13-E3

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.

The Rescue - S2-E3

Revealing mistake: At the beginning, as the Doctor is standing in the TARDIS door, the cave wall can be seen through the TARDIS.

The Ice Warriors - S5-E3

Plot hole: We twice see a map of how far the ice is away from the house, once in the first episode, and later in episode five. The ice has moved most of the way across the map in this time, and the distance it has moved is stated to be a 100 metres. This would place the it only 20 metres from the base. The problem with the distance is that it takes Penley quite a while to get the injured Jamie to the base, including a stretch across open ground. Also, the Ice Warriors weapon targeter suggests the base is as much as two kilometres away. So just how far away is the ice; 20 metres, 2 kilometers...or somewhere in between?

The Trial of a Time Lord 13-14 (aka The Ultimate Foe) - S23-E4

Factual error: The Master states that Earth and its entire constellation were moved, but constellations are merely patterns of stars (as viewed from a given point, like Earth) that may be nowhere near each other - the Earth could not really be described as being in a constellation as any sort of specific entity that could be moved.

Delta and the Bannermen - S24-E3

Revealing mistake: The bodies lying on the ground during the initial battle are rather too obviously rubber dummies rather than real people.

Delta and the Bannermen - S24-E3

Continuity mistake: The Doctor can be seen wearing glasses in some long shots of him riding a motor bike. Normally, Sylvester McCoy (who played the Doctor at this time) removed his glasses before filming. Seems as though he either forgot, or could not ride a motorbike without them.

The Invasion of Time - S15-E6

Continuity mistake: When the Doctor shoots Stor with the De-Mat Gun, the flash starts on Stor's left-hand side, engulfs him, then jumps substantially to the right before whiting out the frame.

Continuity mistake: Throughout the serial, Bessie's tires are dry in studio shots (inside the Doctor's shed) and wet on location shots.

Castrovalva - S19-E1

Continuity mistake: The Doctor's shoes are different at the beginning of this story compared to the ones at the end of the last story.

The Robots of Death - S14-E5

Visible crew/equipment: In episode three, when Toos talks about the disposal of robots, a crewman can be seen behind her, toward the back of the set.

The Masque of Mandragora - S14-E1

Factual error: Giuliano explains to Sarah that he thinks the world is round as though this were radical. But this was the common belief throughout the late Middle Ages. The argument was about how big the Earth was and the ignorance about the existence of a continent between Europe and Asia.

Add time

The Masque of Mandragora - S14-E1

Factual error: Giuliano makes references to the invention of the telescope. Yet the invention of the telescope was at least a century after the events in the story and Galileo's experiments more than 50 years after that.

The Monster of Peladon - S11-E4

Plot hole: The temperature of the air being blown into the mines is controlled from the communications room when the Doctor needs to knock out the Ice Warriors. But conveniently, the ventilation system is controlled from the refinery when Eckersley needs to suffocate the miners.

Add time

The Daemons - S8-E5

Continuity mistake: In part one, watch for the continuity error when Miss Hawthorne turns to face the policeman: her cape appears and disappears from around her shoulders from shot to shot.

Nightmare of Eden - S17-E4

Revealing mistake: In the very first shots of this Doctor Who story, it is obvious that the "Empress" Spaceliner is a model - you can even see the stick that holds the model in place.
