Doctor Who

Inferno - S7-E4

Plot hole: Just after the Doctor meets the Brigade Leader, he looks at the countdown and says in a very loud voice, "only 3 hours and 22 minutes". Several minutes later, when he leaves the office after stunning Benton, the countdown still reads 3 hours and 22 minutes. Did the countdown clock stop?

The Mind Robber - S6-E2

Continuity mistake: This story starts off where the previous story ('The Dominators') finished, but Jamie says something completely different to alert the Doctor to the approaching lava flow.

Visible crew/equipment: In episode 2, as K-9 seals the wall panel, watch out for the hand which emerges to hold it in place.

The Android Invasion - S13-E4

Revealing mistake: In order to save money filming the lift-off of Crayford's rocket from Oseidon, the producers decided to use stock footage of a Saturn 5 blast-off. Unfortunately, that meant the words "UNITED STATES" in large red lettering are seen on the side of the rocket...which is a little bit of a giveaway, especially as the rocket is supposed to be a BRITISH space probe.

Delta and the Bannermen - S24-E3

Plot hole: The Doctor says the explosion of the sonic cone will destroy everyone, so why doesn't it?

The Daemons - S8-E5

Continuity mistake: The hoofmarks seen by both Yeats and Benton from the helicopter appear to be huge when seen from the air. Yet, when the helicopter lands, the hoofmarks are suddenly much, much smaller.

Destiny of the Daleks - S17-E1

Revealing mistake: Right after Davros yells "The Daleks will rule the universe," in Episode 3, one of the Dalek operators accidentally starts to lift the top off his Dalek before the scene ends.

The Wheel in Space - S5-E7

Plot hole: When the airlock door is opening at the end of the final episode, the Cyberman is the only one who appears to be affected by the air rushing out. Although 'rushing out' is probably overstating the speed of the 'explosive decompression'. It's not so much an explosion as a gentle breeze...

City of Death - S17-E2

Plot hole: In episode 4, watch what Romana does to Professor Kerensky's time machine in order to make it work. It is surprising that the time machine works at all, considering she is supposed to be in Paris at the time. Romana wires up the time machine to a British (i.e. 3-pin 240 volts) electric plug instead of a "continental" 3-pin 110 volt plug.

Inferno - S7-E4

Continuity mistake: In episode 1, when the Doctor opens the garage doors with his 'door handle', note the two men in the background, the position of the car behind him and the white pillar. In the next shot, the men and pillar disappear and the car moves to a different spot. In the shot after that, the tanker truck is now parked in front of a pillar. You can see near the beginning of episode 3 that there are two entirely different buildings that the tanker had been filmed in front of.

The Dalek Invasion of Earth - S2-E2

Audio problem: When the Doctor says that what they're seeing now is the middle period of Dalek history, you can hear a metallic thing being dropped off screen.

Inferno - S7-E4

Visible crew/equipment: In episode two, the shadow of the boom mic crosses Jon Pertwee's head as he's giving the "epsilon coordinates" to Liz.

The Ambassadors of Death - S7-E3

Continuity mistake: There are a handful of similar continuity errors, but one that stands out in particular occurs at the end of Episode 1. The Doctor and Liz go into the lab and Taltalian steps out from behind the door wearing glasses and brandishing a gun. However, in the recap at the start of episode 2 he isn't wearing glasses and moves differently.

The Invisible Enemy - S15-E2

Visible crew/equipment: In episode four, when the Doctor is congratulating himself on blowing up the Swarm, the shadow of a boom mike can be seen.

The Invisible Enemy - S15-E2

Plot hole: After the Doctor and Leela's clones fade, the camera pans to show Leela's knife. But since the knife was created in the cloning process, it should have faded out with Leela, the Doctor and their other personal items.

The Invisible Enemy - S15-E2

Continuity mistake: In episode three, the readout strip dangling from K-9's mouth shortens between when he shoots the infected crewman and shoot Leela.

Inferno - S7-E4

Revealing mistake: In episode 6, during the generally poor fight sequence between the Brigade Leader and Greg Sutton, Greg's first punch to the face misses the Brigade Leader by miles.

The Monster of Peladon - S11-E4

Revealing mistake: Eckersely - who supposedly knows the mines better than even the natives of Peladon - drags the queen through the same set twice - once each way.
