Doctor Who

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.

Mistakes
