Spearhead From Space - S7-E1

Other mistake: I know that regeneration causes the Doctor to change his appearance, but I didn't know it can produce a tattoo visible on the Doctor's right arm in episode 2.

The Creature from the Pit - S17-E3

Plot hole: In part 2 it's brought up in conversation several times that all metal is rare on that planet. Handy exposition for the viewers, but it's in fact a really odd thing for the characters to say. The inhabitants aren't giving a tour of their planet (certainly not deliberately at any rate), so why would they state facts that have been well known to them all of their lives? It's a bit like meeting strangers and informing them that two thirds of the Earth are covered by oceans.

The Three Doctors - S10-E1

Revealing mistake: Whenever the TARDIS's scanner picture of the Doctor's laboratory is shown, the TARDIS itself is always in the picture.

The Three Doctors - S10-E1

Factual error: It's stated that Omega caused the black hole when he created a supernova. Supernovas don't cause black holes, they're created by huge stars imploding.

Suggested correction: Basic lifecycle of extremely massive stars: they're born, they live for several million years, they die in a large supernova. There are two potential outcomes of a supernova: the creation of a pulsar or neutron star, or the creation of a black hole, depending on how massive the original star was. So yes, black holes are indeed created in supernovas.

The War Games - S6-E7

Revealing mistake: When the resistance are storming the landing bay, one of them punches at least a foot to the right of a guard's face, but he still collapses.
