Doctor Who

Planet of the Daleks - S10-E4

Visible crew/equipment: In episode four, the Dalek chasing the heroes up the ventilator shaft is supported by strings.

The Mind Robber - S6-E2

Other mistake: The Master says he wrote 5,000 words a week for 25 years and Zoe says "but that's over half a million words." Yes it is, to be exact, six and a half million words. (5,000 x 52 x 25 = 6,500,000).

The Romans - S2-E4

Factual error: Nero seems to be middle ages, but the historical Nero was 27 at the time Rome burned.

Add time

The Dalek Invasion of Earth - S2-E2

Factual error: The Doctor states that the Daleks invaded Earth because it is the only planet with a magnetic core. In fact, every planet in the solar system has a magnetic core.

The Keys of Marinus - S1-E5

Visible crew/equipment: In episode one, when Ian is first seen inside the pyramid, someone stumbles through the background. Some have claimed this is Barbara, but it happens too fast to tell.

Pyramids of Mars - S13-E3

Visible crew/equipment: In episode 4, look out for the legendary "Hand of Sutekh" - a hand (presumably that of a member of the crew) holding the cushion down in the scene where Sutekh stands up.

Attack of the Cybermen - S22-E1

Revealing mistake: When Lytton stabs the Cybercontroller, some of the Cybercontroller's 'blood' gets splashed on the camera. (The 'blood' is green-dyed water spraying from the Cybercontroller's arm.).

The War Machines - S3-E10

Factual error: The story The War Machines is (probably) set in London in July 1966. At the time, England, and more specifically, London, was hosting the FIFA World Cup Soccer Tournament. Yet, you wouldn't know it from watching this Doctor Who story...Sir Charles Summers mentions July 12th (1966) which was the day after England played Uruguay at Wembley and the day before Mexico played France. The other matches involving those four were played in London during the time the events of The War Machines are supposed to take place, yet no mention is made of the fact, there are no foreign football supporters roaming the streets and no flags or posters on display. Did the story take place in an "alternate reality" London of July 1966?

Inferno - S7-E4

Revealing mistake: In episode one, a wall wobbles as Benton hammers a nail into it.

The Invisible Enemy - S15-E2

Plot hole: Why doesn't Lowe simply shoot Leela the second her back is turned? Moreover, why does he take them to get medical help? It's made clear that the virus has everything it needs on Titan.

Death to the Daleks - S11-E3

Revealing mistake: In episode three, when the root attacks the Daleks in the mining area, the string holding the root up can be seen.

Remembrance of the Daleks - S25-E1

Continuity mistake: After the Special Weapons Dalek blows up the gate to Ratcliffe's warehouse, you can see that some of the Daleks were slightly damaged by the explosion. In all the following shots, they have been repaired.

The Curse of Fenric - S26-E3

Revealing mistake: When Ace is being attacked by the Haemovores, she strikes one of them on the head, causing its mask to go up and revealing part of the actor's neck.

Silver Nemesis - S25-E3

Factual error: In 1638, a mathematician calculates that the asteroid will return in 350 years time, on the 23rd of November 1988. But in 1752, Britain's calendar was moved forward 11 days so that it matched with that of the Vatican. This means the asteroid would return on 4th December, so everything that is supposed to happen in this story after 1752 is 11 days out.

Battlefield - S26-E1

Deliberate mistake: Look for the "creases" in the wall inside the TARDIS, which look as if the wall was just a sheet hung up behind the console.(In fact it actually WAS a sheet and not a "solid" wall – the TARDIS wall prop was apparently unusable due to water damage, due to poor storage between seasons. This also explains the lack of TARDIS interior scenes throughout the rest of season 26: it was not thought worth repairing the TARDIS set (or building a new one) when the show was in imminent danger of being cancelled after season 26.).

Add time

The Claws of Axos - S8-E3

Revealing mistake: In the UNIT tracking room, there is a flimsy railing behind the radar operators that Chinn knocks as Yates leads him off to the "direct" phone line, causing it to wobble badly. The Doctor then deals the railing another blow as he comes up to look at the console.

Genesis of the Daleks - S12-E4

Continuity mistake: In episode 6, when the lead Dalek is saying 'Pity? I have no understanding of the word' the lights on the top of its dome stop working. They start working again in the following shot.

Inferno - S7-E4

Revealing mistake: In episode 6, when the Brigade Leader shoots the Primord Stahlmann, he falls down but no bullet holes are made in his costume. Thanks to Producer Barry Letts for spotting this one on the DVD commentary.

The Caves of Androzani - S21-E6

Factual error: Sharaz Jek's monitor that displays the tunnels and his androids is inaccurate. The white blobs are, as we learn later, supposed to represent his androids. He tells the Doctor that the green area is held by the army, yet on the screen the green area is populated by androids, so they could not have had control.

The Caves of Androzani - S21-E6

Revealing mistake: When Stotz cuts a hole in his ship's door, you can see that the inside of it is made of white polystyrene. They painted the outside of it but obviously forgot about the inside. Also listen to the sound it makes when Stotz punches the hole through - it sounds exactly like polystyrene.
