Remembrance of the Daleks - S25-E1

Factual error: The events depicted are supposed to have taken place at the time of the broadcast of the first Doctor Who Story...Saturday 23rd November 1963 at 5:15pm. However, the non-wintry weather and the bright evenings don't fit late November/early December.

Invasion of the Dinosaurs - S11-E2

Plot hole: The Tyrannosaurus Rex which appears in this story does not actually roar; instead it says the WORD 'roar' several times. There may be little scientific evidence as what sound a T.Rex makes, but it is unlikely that any of them spoke fluent English...

Earthshock - S19-E6

Plot hole: The Cyber Leader states that he needs the Doctor to pilot the TARDIS. It makes no sense then, that he would try to kill the Doctor once inside, and before the TARDIS had landed in a safe place.

The Daleks - S1-E2

Revealing mistake: Toward the end Episode Two, when Susan opens the TARDIS doors, the console wobbles.

The Daleks - S1-E2

Revealing mistake: In the Dalek city, it is unfortunately obvious that the "tunnels" behind the actors are just photographic blow-ups, as you can see the bottom of the wall meeting with the floor.

100,000 BC - S1-E1

Visible crew/equipment: The boom mic makes an quick appearance about 18 minutes into episode one. It is in the upper left corner when the camera switches from a close up of the Doctor and Susan to a medium shot of all four characters.

The Daleks - S1-E2

Revealing mistake: There are numerous scenes where the background Daleks are blown-up photographs. The most obvious is in episode five when the Daleks are discussing the radiation drugs.

The Keys of Marinus - S1-E5

Visible crew/equipment: In episode one, when the Doctor is near the pyramid, someone's leg can be seen just before the shot ends.

Add time

Planet of Giants - S2-E1

Plot hole: The miniaturized TARDIS crew never interact with the other characters in this story, because, as the Doctor points out, the 'giants' will be unable to hear them, as their voices will be on a different wavelength. So why does the Doctor later suggest using the telephone to try to call for help?

The Mind Robber - S6-E2

Other mistake: When the Doctor pulls Zoe and Jamie back into the TARDIS, look at the scanner screen. It has the words 'Producer Peter Bryant' written on it.

Add time

The Tomb of the Cybermen - S5-E1

Revealing mistake: When Kaftan is activating the revitaliser controls you can see Patricck Troughton moving into position for when he runs and grabs her.

Matty W

The Invisible Enemy - S15-E2

Plot hole: The Doctor's clone is free of the virus - so why is Lowe's clone infected? Perhaps they infected him after cloning, in which case, why is Lowe cloned at all?

Add time

Pyramids of Mars - S13-E3

Visible crew/equipment: In episode four, after Marcus opens the second door in the pyramid (the one with the hidden switch), someone wearing a white shirt can be seen through the opening.
