Invasion of the Dinosaurs - S11-E2

Continuity mistake: In episode 2, when the Doctor and Brig arrive at the scene to stun the dinosaur, they leave the stun gun in the jeep. Mike Yates glances down at it and we can see that the sabotage disk is already attached - although he doesn't actually put it on until later.

Resurrection of the Daleks - S21-E4

Audio problem: Davros' lips don't move when he says, "Now for the Daleks," just before he releases the Dalek-killing virus.

The Dominators - S6-E1

Continuity mistake: At many points in this story there are problems with the costume that Zoe is wearing...the zip is often jammed part or all the way open. Not only does this leave most of her back exposed, but the position of the zip tends to change position during scenes, as while off camera Zoe tries to pull the zip back up, only for it to open up again minutes later. (It is a little unkind to say it, but possibly the costume was a little bit too tight for Zoe, causing it 'self unzip'?).

The Time Warrior - S11-E1

Plot hole: How did UNIT soldiers manage to get the TARDIS through an ordinary door into the Doctor's dorm in the research centre? The Doctor's labs in the various UNIT HQs had either double doors or a removable partition wall. The research centre is supposed to be an ordinary country house with single doors and solid walls. The TARDIS is larger than the average wardrobe and, unlike most modern wardrobes, doesn't come apart so it can be got through doorways. The TARDIS is known to be a "Type 40 capsule"...but there's never been any mention of the TARDIS being an IKEA-style "flat pack self-assembly" time machine...

The Invisible Enemy - S15-E2

Factual error: Titan is depicted as a Moon-like landscape with no atmosphere. In actual fact, Titan has a nitrogen/argon atmosphere denser than Earth's, and a reddish-orange sky. This was detected almost thirty years before The Invisible Enemy was made, so somebody slipped up in doing their research.

The Robots of Death - S14-E5

Visible crew/equipment: When Leela runs into Toos' quarters (and finds D84 leaning over Toos), we see a low-angle shot of her entering the room. Look at the brief shots of her before and after D84's line, "Please do not throw hands at me," and you'll see the front of the camera that took that low-angle shot jutting out into the doorway behind her, before it slowly retreats out of vision.

The Talons of Weng-Chiang - S14-E6

Revealing mistake: A 1970s newspaper - the headline concerns Denis Healey, Chancellor of the Exchequer in the 1974-79 Labour Government - can be seen in Litefoot's laundry basket in episode three.

The War Machines - S3-E10

Factual error: This story is set in London in 1966 - the Post Office Tower was completed in October 1965). July 12th 1966 was a Saturday, not a Monday.

Audio problem: When Irongrond fires his first gun, the sound is heard before the gun actually fires.

Planet of the Daleks - S10-E4

Continuity mistake: At the end of episode one, when the Doctor and Taron spray paint onto the invisible Dalek, they use two different colors. At the start of episode two, the Dalek is suddenly black and painted on all sides.

The Curse of Fenric - S26-E3

Factual error: The story is set in 1943. Jean and Phyllis shouldn't readily know who Jane Russell is – she didn't become famous until her debut film 'The Outlaw' was a box-office hit after the war, three years later. [Although 'The Outlaw' originally had a limited release in the US (but NOT the UK) in 1943, it was quickly withdrawn by the censors and not released widely until 1946]. True, they could have read about this film in a newspaper or magazine, but considering the strict wartime censorship then in force, it is unlikely...

The Talons of Weng-Chiang - S14-E6

Continuity mistake: Magnus Greel puts Leela in the distillation chamber and switches it on. Cue red lights, special effects, and Leela writhing about. Then the Doctor arrives and throws a battle-axe into the works. Sparks fly, and the machine stops, presumably broken. Later, however, when Greel is pushed into the chamber, it turns on and does its thing just as if nothing had happened to it. Oh, and the axe thrown earlier disappears too.

Inferno - S7-E4

Continuity mistake: In episode 4, the Doctor's bow shrinks from when he talks to Liz Shaw while in prison, to when he stows aboard a jeep later. In the DVD commentary, producer Barry Letts blames himself for this mistake.

The Three Doctors - S10-E1

Revealing mistake: When the Doctor and Jo see Bessie in the middle of the rocky area, there is the white chalky substance from the ground on her wheels, indicating she was driven to the spot rather than being "transported" to the black-hole.

The Daleks' Master Plan - S3-E4

Audio problem: At one point where the trail of Visian footprints are appearing, we hear the sound effect of the foot hitting the ground, but the footprint fails to appear.

Pyramids of Mars - S13-E3

Continuity mistake: When Sarah-Jane is sitting on the floor inside the transparent tube and the two gold-trimmed mummies/guardians appear in the background, you can see the dust on the surface of the tube change noticeably as the fade occurs.

The Curse of Fenric - S26-E3

Plot hole: A line of dialogue in "The Curse of Fenric" indicates that the Russians planned to make their escape by "going to the North Way", in other words, escaping to Norway. However, the story is set in the summer of 1943, when Norway was under Nazi occupation. It would not be a smart idea for any Russian military personnel to head for Nazi-occupied Norway.
