Doctor Who

The War Games - S6-E7

Plot hole: Despite being asked to memorise all the locations and war zone commanders, Zoe's photographic memory lets her down: her first words to the Mexican leader are 'Who are you?'.

The Robots of Death - S14-E5

Revealing mistake: Watch the scene where Uvanov sticks a Laserson probe into the head of one of the Vocs (V4) as it is strangling the Doctor. After he shoves the probe in, you can quite see the suit's helmet come away from the rest of the suit.

The Moonbase - S4-E6

Audio problem: If you listen carefully to the soundtrack of part four of "The Moonbase", some 'chatter' and 'feedback' from the floor manager's headphones can be heard. (At the time this particular episode was recorded, there was just a one-week gap between recording 'Doctor Who' and transmission, so there was no time available to re-record the episode, and this mistake had to be left in).

The Happiness Patrol - S25-E2

Revealing mistake: When Ace and Susan are sitting underneath the huge pipe about to be executed by the Fondant surprise, it's obvious that the actresses aren't sitting directly underneath the pipe, but slightly behind it.

Earthshock - S19-E6

Visible crew/equipment: As Lieutenant Scott is moving up the scaffold staircase, you can see someone at the top of the screen reading a script.

The Invasion of Time - S15-E6

Plot hole: In the middle of chasing the Doctor, Stor abandons the idea of controlling Gallifrey in favour of destroying it for no readily apparent reason.

The Twin Dilemma - S21-E7

Audio problem: In episode 1, The Doctor hits something on the central console (not the door control) and walks towards the door. The door doesn't open, but the sound of the door opening is still heard.

The Stones of Blood - S16-E3

Visible crew/equipment: When the Ogri does attack the Doctor and Rumford in the cellar, the person pushing it is quite visible as is another crew member standing to one side.

The Chase - S2-E8

Audio problem: Before the TARDIS materialises in the haunted house you can hear the Dalek's time machine sound effect for no apparent reason.

The Daleks - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: The Dalek the crew ambush in episode three has a magnetic block in its sucker and, after the attack, a mud-covered eyestalk. At the beginning of episode four, the eye-stalk is visibly clear of mud, yet is later seen plastered with mud once more.

The Three Doctors - S10-E1

Plot hole: After UNIT HQ disappears, you can see a patch of grass where the UNIT HQ used to be...but just exactly how can grass grow underneath a building?

The Keys of Marinus - S1-E5

Continuity mistake: In episode one, Barbara activates her travel dial only seconds before the others. But in episode two, she's been at Morphoton for quite some time - long enough to change clothes, pick fabrics and get food.

Earthshock - S19-E6

Revealing mistake: When the Cybermen break through to the bridge, they brush against the door and it bends as if made of cardboard. It was supposed to be made of reinforced steel.

The Daleks - S1-E2

Revealing mistake: When the Thals are using sunlight to blind the Dalek cameras in Episode Six, wide shots of the Dalek city show it moving back and forth from bad matte combination.

Terror of the Zygons - S13-E1

Revealing mistake: In episode four, when Caber breaks a piece off the Zygon equipment, the entire wall shakes.

The Daleks - S1-E2

Visible crew/equipment: Toward the end of episode one, when Ian is wondering where Barbara is, the shadow of a boom mic moves over the door behind him.

The Dalek Invasion of Earth - S2-E2

Other mistake: Ian has completely forgotten the distinctive shape of a Dalek. It's only when the Dalek starts speaking that Ian says to the Doctor, "that voice". Yet later when they are at the saucer, he talks to the Doctor about the new back of the Dalek having a disk on them now.

Destiny of the Daleks - S17-E1

Factual error: Davros comments that, between them, the Daleks are carrying half a megaton of explosives - in other words, roughly twenty-five times more explosive force than the Hiroshima or Nagasaki bombs. An explosion of that size should cause enormous destruction (vaporizing everything within roughly two kilometers), yet when the Doctor detonates them they explode with about as much power as a small stick of dynamite each.

The Web Planet - S2-E5

Other mistake: In the end part of this story, in the large spiders den, you can see the string supporting it.

Add time

The Claws of Axos - S8-E3

Revealing mistake: The Filer vs. Filer fight in the lab is very amusing, not only because of the several glimpses of the stuntman doubling for Filer, but also because of the way the "metal" railings around the set wobble as they slam into them.
