The Three Doctors - S10-E1

Revealing mistake: (Part 4) After Omega takes off his mask and looks in the mirror, when he sees that his physical body doesn't exist he puts his mask back on and screams, but when he shouts, "If I exist only by my will, then my will is to destroy," Omega's mask pops up off his face, and we can see the actor's blackened face as he shouts the last bit of his dialogue.

100,000 BC - S1-E1

Revealing mistake: Susan is supposed to be running through a forest. It is painfully obvious that, in fact, she is simply running on the spot against a back-projected film, and the branches that hit her are simply studio stagehands, hiding just out of shot, hitting the actress with twigs.

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.

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.

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.

These 'secret doors' come in handy during episode 4, allowing seven people to come out of the police box in the final confrontation with Omega.

But when the Doctor agrees to take on the mission, it suddenly appears very concentrated around the tip of the rocks behind them, as if generated from a source behind the rocks.

The Power of the Daleks - S4-E3

Revealing mistake: The Daleks that appear in this and other Doctor Who stories were rather expensive, so some ingenuity was required to make the small number available look like they were more than they were. Tricks employed in "The Power of The Daleks" included making four Daleks look like an army by having them circle around the set a few times. (Note the delay between the fourth Dalek exiting and the "fifth" Dalek entering) and the blatant use of photographic blow-ups in place of "real" Daleks.

Add time

The Tomb of the Cybermen - S5-E1

Revealing mistake: In this Doctor Who story, there is a fight scene between Toberman and the Cybercontroller. The Cybercontroller uses a very visible harness to lift Toberman over his head,and the wires attached to the harness Toberman is wearing are also very visible...and when Toberman, in return, lifts the Cybercontroller above HIS head, it is obvious that what Toberman is lifting is an empty costume, with no-one inside it.
