Doctor Who

The Daemons - S8-E5

Plot hole: It is never explained who - or what - killed the man in the churchyard during the first scene (early in part one). It cannot be Bok (the gargoyle) or Azal (the Daemon) as neither of them have awoken.

The Curse of Fenric - S26-E3

Factual error: As Jean and Phyllis run into the water to go swimming, they seem to be wearing dark shoes or sandals. But in most of their appearances as Haemovores later in the story, they are wearing bright white (and suspiciously modern-looking) sneakers/trainers.

Revelation of the Daleks - S22-E6

Plot hole: The DJ fires the ultrasonic gun, to demonstrate it to Peri. The glass in the doors breaks. When the Daleks arrive the glass in the doors is unbroken. It then doesn't break the glass in the doors in any of the other times he fires the weapon.

The Creature from the Pit - S17-E3

Revealing mistake: Just as the Doctor asks where the TARDIS has materialised, watch the control console wobble. However, isn't it strange that the hat-stand in the TARDIS console room remains upright thoughout...so why does the console wobble, and the hat stand not move in the slightest?

The Creature from the Pit - S17-E3

Plot hole: The Doctor should not need a book on Tibetan as he already knows the language...he went to Tibet in the Season 11 story "Planet of the Spiders". (Of course, that was Jon Pertwee, the 3rd Doctor Who. Perhaps losing the mastery of the Tibetan language was a result the regeneration into Tom Baker...).

The Robots of Death - S14-E5

Revealing mistake: Immediately after the Doctor stabs SV7 in the back of the head and the robot crashes to the floor, the next scene shows the fallen figure of SV7 in the background - breathing heavily, with his chest moving up and down.

Matty W

The Pirate Planet - S16-E2

Revealing mistake: The split screen used to make two Doctors appear simultaneously is apparent when the Captain's chair appears to blur while both are in shot.

Resurrection of the Daleks - S21-E4

Other mistake: When the Doctor's mind is scanned, we see his previous incarnations and companions, but Leela it not shown. Katarina is represented by a black and white photograph.

Add time

The Android Invasion - S13-E4

Visible crew/equipment: In episode one, the Doctor and Sarah crouch behind a pod to escape the android laser fire. They lie on a large brown piece of cloth conveniently placed to keep them from getting dirty.

Add time

The Dominators - S6-E1

Plot hole: When Jamie and Cully go on the offensive, Jamie lures a quark away from a drilling site into a narrow valley, then Cully drops a boulder onto it. Yet when we see the crushed quark, it is next to a drill, on flat land.

Revenge of the Cybermen - S12-E5

Plot hole: The Vogans live on a planet made of gold. They helped develop the gold weapons that defeated the Cybermen. They know the Cybermen are coming and live in a state of paranoia about that eventuality. So why in the world do they attack the Cybermen with useless projectile weapons instead of "glitter guns" or some other gold-based weapon?

Add time

The Horns of Nimon - S17-E5

Continuity mistake: In this episode part of the TARDIS set was erected incorrectly, resulting in some of the roundels emerging from the wall rather than being indented into it. This is very visible in all the TARDIS 'console room' shots.

Add time

Revenge of the Cybermen - S12-E5

Visible crew/equipment: Quite a few times during this story arc you can see Vogans without their gold eye make-up so you can see human coloured eyelids when the rest of them is all brown.

The Sun Makers - S15-E4

Continuity mistake: After shooting the two guards near the beginning of episode three, K-9's nose blaster retracts twice - one in close-up, once in medium shot.

Add time

Inside the Spaceship - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: Susan's socks disappear during the opening credits.

Add time

The Green Death - S10-E5

Other mistake: The end titles of episodes 2, 5, and 6 of "The Green Death" were run backwards and upside-down. According to some published accounts, this was due to the telecine operator forgetting to rewind the end title film sequence before playback.

Add time

The Monster of Peladon - S11-E4

Continuity mistake: When opening the door to the refinery, the Doctor leaves his sonic screwdriver on top of the panel. However, a few seconds later, when we next see the panel, the sonic screwdriver has disappeared.

Add time

The Green Death - S10-E5

Plot hole: Jo should know what the dematerialisation circuit looks like. She saw it in 'Terror of the Autons', 'The Three Doctors' and several other episodes.

Add time

The Twin Dilemma - S21-E7

Plot hole: Peri makes no mention of the Doctor's heroic sacrifice on her behalf, nor thanks him for it (no wonder he's touchy).

Add time

The Talons of Weng-Chiang - S14-E6

Revealing mistake: There are *modern* power points, covered with masking tape, visible on the walls of Litefoot's laboratory. The story is set in the 1890s.
