Doctor Who

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.


Invasion of the Dinosaurs - S11-E2

Revealing mistake: When the Brigadier is using a flare to ward off a dinosaur in the tunnel, the smoke instantaneously vanishes as it hits the split screen.


The Gunfighters - S3-E8

Other mistake: In part one, one of the gunmen shoots at a bottle behind the bar and it takes several seconds for the bullet to travel only a few feet.


The Web Planet - S2-E5

Visible crew/equipment: At the beginning of episode two, the Doctor finds Ian unconscious with a very obvious shadow of the camera and cameraman looming over him.


The Web Planet - S2-E5

Visible crew/equipment: At the end of episode 3, a venom grub starts chasing Ian. As it enters the screen however, you can see the actor under it crouching down.

Attack of the Cybermen - S22-E1

Visible crew/equipment: Just after the Cyber Leader orders that Flast be thrown out of the refrigerated room, one of the floor crew can be seen kneeling behind some crates. (01:20:50)

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.

State of Decay - S18-E4

Continuity mistake: In "The Deadly Assassin" the Doctor's blood is red but in "State of Decay" his blood is suddenly dark blue. Then it's back to being red in "The Two Doctors."

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.

Spiny Norman

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 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.


The Web Planet - S2-E5

Visible crew/equipment: In an early TARDIS scene, at one point the cable powering the console is seen running from the base and under the wall.
