The Claws of Axos - S8-E3

Character mistake: The Doctor gets Jo to do some mathematics to distract her. At one point she says "49 x 2=88", when it actually equals 98, then she says that "adding 10 equals 108". (In other words, Jo (Katy Manning) fluffed her line, got one figure wrong, then went back to script...).

Nightmare of Eden - S17-E4

Plot hole: When the Doctor goes into the CET projection of Eden, to fight the Manrells, he disappears into the bushes on the left-hand side of the screen. Cue much shaking of foliage, and Tom Baker's cries of 'ooh' 'aargh' and 'ouch'. The Doctor then reappears with his clothes all tattered and torn, due to his 'fight' with the Mandrells...but the the fact that there is not a mark (not even a scratch) on Tom Baker is something of a giveaway that all Tom Baker did was disappear behind some bushes and do a quick change into a tattered version of his costume...

The Twin Dilemma - S21-E7

Plot hole: Azmael doesn't recognise the regenerated Doctor (In the shape of Colin Baker) whereas on most other occasions other Time Lords do recognize each other through telepathy. This is odd behaviour by Azmael, considering that Azmael and the Doctor HAVE actually met before, and possibly more than once. (Azmael last met the Doctor in the Doctor's fourth incarnation, and was the best teacher the Doctor ever had. On that occasion, Azmael got drunk.).

The Ribos Operation - S16-E1

Visible crew/equipment: When Romana brings the Tracer near the jewel cabinet in episode one, the wire powering the prop can be seen at the bottom of her hand.

Pyramids of Mars - S13-E3

Visible crew/equipment: The "crystal" tube holding Sarah wobbles whenever it is touched.

The Mark of the Rani - S22-E3

Factual error: One of the characters in this story is called "Lord Ravensworth". Yet the story is set in 1813.and Sir Henry Liddell was not enobled and raised to the Peerage to become Lord Ravensworth until 1821 (eight years later).

The Happiness Patrol - S25-E2

Revealing mistake: In episode one, as the Doctor is repairing the buggy, one of the patrol runs on too soon, realises that he's come in ahead of his 'cue', and runs back.

Earthshock - S19-E6

Audio problem: In episode two, the Cyberleader misses a button on his console, yet we still hear a beep...

The Five Doctors - S20-E7

Other mistake: Episode - The Five Doctors. The Cyber Leader is supposed to follow The Master's footsteps exactly in order to get across the chessboard. He doesn't. This cannot be classed as a character mistake because the Cyber Leader knew what was involved. I believe this mistake was caused by the actor not being able to see the chessboard through his helmet.

The Robots of Death - S14-E5

Revealing mistake: Watch really closely when Leela throws the knife at one of the robots. You can see the knife fall to the floor about a second after she throws it. Then, of course, the next shot shows the knife sticking out of the robot's chest. Guess Leela isn't quite as good a shot as we thought.

The Five Doctors - S20-E7

Revealing mistake: Episode - The Five Doctors. When a Cyberman's arm is sliced off by the Robot's shuriken, you can see his real arm bulging out at the right side of his body.

The Tomb of the Cybermen - S5-E1

Revealing mistake: The Cybermen retreat into their tombs backwards; this was achieved by simply having the film of them coming out of their tombs run in reverse.

Destiny of the Daleks - S17-E1

Revealing mistake: When the Doctor and his companion are running past explosions in the sand, you can see the scrape marks from where the effects team covered up the holes containing the charges.

The War Games - S6-E7

Plot hole: The map of the "War Zones" where the Aliens are conducting their War Games can be seen several times in this story. The map is visibly divided into 11 zones. Yet, during this story, the "War Zones" visited or referred to total THIRTEEN.

The Wheel in Space - S5-E7

Factual error: In the story "The Wheel In Space", it is claimed that a meteor shower has been diverted towards The Wheel by a star in the M13 Hercules Cluster going nova. As M13 is a galaxy some 34,000 light years away from Earth, it would have to be one almighty nova to affect the course of a meteor shower in our galaxy - due to the countless gravitational forces between M13 and the Milky Way - and been caused at least 34,000 years before the time of the story.

The Tenth Planet - S4-E2

Factual error: During every outdoor scene in Antarctica, heavy blizzards are shown raging constantly. In reality, such blizzards are extremely rare at the South Pole, thanks to the almost total absence of precipitation Antarctica is effectively a desert, as the air is very dry: with very little moisture in the air, rain or snow is almost impossible.

Invasion of the Dinosaurs - S11-E2

Revealing mistake: At the beginning of episode two, the soldiers firing at the dinosaur are aiming up and well to the left of the creature.

The Ark in Space - S12-E2

Continuity mistake: When the Doctor and Harry arrive in the cryogenic chamber, they walk around for some time inspecting the chamber and talking. Towards the end, they notice a green slime trail newly appeared on the floor. But the trail was visible in the very first overhead shot of the chamber.
