Genesis of the Daleks - S12-E4

Deliberate mistake: Chief of Security Nyder wears an iron cross on his uniform which mysteriously disappears in episode 3 - apparently the producers felt it was too close a reference to Nazism so it was removed from the show. (Source: DVD commentary).

Daz

Horror of Fang Rock - S15-E1

Continuity mistake: When Palmerdale wakes Harker up and asks him if he can use the telegraph, Harker answers him, then asks him to repeat the question, then answers again.

The Robots of Death - S14-E5

Revealing mistake: Near the end of episode one, the Doctor peers into a hopper and sees ore piling up inside. The image of the ore wobbles back and forth.

Add time

Pyramids of Mars - S13-E3

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

Planet of Evil - S13-E2

Revealing mistake: In episode four, when Vishinsky and Sarah go into the storage room to get the force field generators, the plaque on the door flops around like the cardboard that it is.

Add time

The Tenth Planet - S4-E2

Continuity mistake: The dialogue between Cutler and the technician at that beginning of episode 3 is slightly from that which closes episode 2.

Add time

The Gunfighters - S3-E8

Continuity mistake: The six-shooters, in the climactic gunfight, fire off a lot more than six shots without reloading.

The Curse of Fenric - S26-E3

Plot hole: One sequence which makes little sense is when Ace triggers the booby-trap gas grenade on the chess board. Although the Doctor places a wastepaper basket over the grenade, the green toxic gas is very much present for the rest of the scene but does not harm either the Doctor or Ace, despite it being shown to have been lethal to the soldiers in a preceding scene. (NOTE: This error only applies the TV broadcast and the original video release; the error was noticed and corrected in 2003 for the DVD release of this Doctor Who story.

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

Revealing mistake: In the final episode, Glitz and the Master leave the console room while the Doctor is driven into submission, but they are quite obviously standing by the scanner screen.

The Three Doctors - S10-E1

Audio problem: When the companions are returning to Earth via the pillar of smoke, you can see and hear each person walk up the steps and then supposedly disappear. Unfortunately, you can then hear them walk down the other side of the steps..

Robot - S12-E1

Other mistake: When the K1 Robot breaks out of Kettlewells factory in part 2 or 3, it trips up.

The Keeper of Traken - S18-E6

Revealing mistake: The Grove is one of the most obvious indoor sets masquerading as a lush outdoor environment. The sound the actors feet make on the floor is especially unforgivable.

The Invisible Enemy - S15-E2

Continuity mistake: Lowe's "frozen" makeup changes between when he emerges from the freezer and when Leela brings him a cup of coffee.

The Robots of Death - S14-E5

Revealing mistake: At the beginning of episode four, when the Doctor is surrounded by robots, we initially see SV7 with *blue* eyes. Clearly someone forgot to add the glowing red-eye CSO.

The Curse of Peladon - S9-E2

Plot hole: The delegate 'Centauri' is a 'hexapod' - a creature with six legs and feet. ('Hex' = "six", 'pod' = 'foot'.) But throughout this Doctor Who story, 'Centauri' can be seen with all six legs and feet in the air, projecting from the front of the creature...so what is it walking around on?

The Mind Robber - S6-E2

Continuity mistake: Near the end of episode three, Jamie starts to read the printout. At first, he is reading the printout the right way round. But when we next see him, he seems to be reading it upside down. Then the third time we see him, he is back to reading it correctly (right way up).

Add time

The Romans - S2-E4

Factual error: The geographical references in this story are somewhat suspect. Assissium is the modern town of Assissi, some 70 miles north of Rome and the same distance east from the sea. The Great Fire of Rome took place in July 64AD.

Add time

Inferno - S7-E4

Revealing mistake: When Stahlman is killed - the second time - the shot of his green primord face reveals the actors unpainted neck under his beard.

Add time

Planet of the Spiders - S11-E5

Continuity mistake: In episode two, Lupton steals a boat, throwing the pilot into the water. Moments later, we see him struggling with the pilot again - who is perfectly dry.
