Doctor Who

Vengeance on Varos - S22-E2

Continuity mistake: When the Doctor enters the desert room in addition to his coat, he is wearing a brown waistcoat with a white shirt underneath. When the shot cuts away and the back to the Doctor, we see him take off his coat but he is no longer wearing the waistcoat. Later when he collects his coat after the acid bath scene and he starts to look through the wardrobe for a disguise he is mysteriously wearing the waistcoat again.

Remembrance of the Daleks - S25-E1

Other mistake: Right before the Doctor gets attacked by the destroyed Dalek he says: "Let me see, Professor" but the subtitles says: "That's impressive."

The Three Doctors - S10-E1

Audio problem: In Part 3 when the Brigadier gets behind the sand pile with Arthur Ollis, the Brigadier asks him "Did you find a way in?" This is not Nicholas Courtney's voice for this one line. He speaks again right after that and it is his voice. (00:13:20)

Robot - S12-E1

Revealing mistake: In the last part, the giant robot steps on a soldier. There are several things wrong with this scene. 1) You can see the matte halo around the robot's foot. 2) The robot does not leave a footprint. And 3), after the soldier gets squashed, his arm is visible waving over the robot's foot.

The Green Death - S10-E5

Revealing mistake: Matte halos appear very frequently in this episode, particularly when descending into the mine shaft.

The Green Death - S10-E5

Revealing mistake: When Jo and the Doctor are rowing through the maggot lake, several times parts of the actor's arms disappear.

The Moonbase - S4-E6

Audio problem: In part 4, when the Cybermen are outside the moonbase controlling the workers, the mouth of the radio operator does not move when he is speaking to them. Furthermore, a few of the Cybermen's mouths outside the moonbase are stuck open when they have no dialogue.

The Three Doctors - S10-E1

Visible crew/equipment: (Part 3) After Omega has revealed himself to the Third Doctor, Jo, and Dr. Tyler, when he begins to speak privately to the Doctor the camera casts a shadow on Omega's body. Then after Omega turns around the boom mic dips into view at the top of the screen. And when Omega starts walking forward, the shadow of equipment (presumably the boom and mic) can be seen moving on the far wall, near the lower left of the screen. (00:03:10)

The Underwater Menace - S4-E5

Factual error: In Episode 3, Zarof fires a gun. The muzzle is seen and a sound is heard but the gun doesn't move and there's no smoke or bullet, no flash or anything at all. (00:23:05)

The Ambassadors of Death - S7-E3

The Daleks' Master Plan - S3-E4

Visible crew/equipment: In Episode 2 when Marc Cory and the other Ambassador are talking, a figure who appears to be wearing Space Security Uniform (and this isn't Nicholas Courtney) and a stage hand walk by, and you can also see the end of the set.

Death racer 1

The Daleks' Master Plan - S3-E4

Continuity mistake: In the cliffhanger to episode 1 of this story, as the Daleks approached the TARDIS, the TARDIS door was open. At the beginning of episode 2, seconds after the cliffhanger moment in 1, the door is suddenly closed. (00:01:00 - 00:02:00)

The Keeper of Traken - S18-E6

Revealing mistake: When the Keeper is on the TARDIS, he asks to borrow the screen. But on the upper left corner, you can see it over where it's meant to be.

Season 20 generally

Plot hole: In "The Five Doctors", Susan tells Turlough that she can pilot the TARDIS to some extent. During series 1 and 2, it was clear that she couldn't pilot it at all. She couldn't have been taught between episodes as the Doctor had little idea himself at the time.

The Androids of Tara - S16-E4

Revealing mistake: When K-9 is cutting through the wall of the hut, the cut overtakes his laser at one point.
