Doctor Who

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.

Planet of the Daleks - S10-E4

Continuity mistake: In episode five, Jo's hairstyle changes. She has one hairstyle in the bulk of the episode, which was filmed in the studio. And a different one during the "Plain of Stones" scenes, which were shot on location.

Planet of the Daleks - S10-E4

Continuity mistake: In the very first scene of the story, Jo is holding a gun as she opens the TARDIS doors, but when they come into the console room, she has no gun and is using both hands to support the Doctor.

The Green Death - S10-E5

Continuity mistake: In episode five, the Doctor escapes from Global during the day. When Yates is caught it's dark, but the next scene, on the slag heap, is in daylight again.

The Three Doctors - S10-E1

Continuity mistake: (End of Ep. 3 and start of Ep. 4) When the Third Doctor fights the dark side of Omega's mind, the rings that the Doctor wears on the pinky fingers of both hands switch to his ring fingers, then back again to his pinky fingers, between shots. Then as Omega chokes the Doctor, the ring on his right pinky vanishes between shots.

Planet of the Spiders - S11-E5

Plot hole: At the climax of episode 2, the Doctor is about to catch Lupton when the latter simply teleports to safety. So why didn't he do that in the first place, before engaging in a 15-minute chase?

Earthshock - S19-E6

Question: In Earthshock, season 19, at the end of episode 3, the Cyber Leader views his troops marching down the corridor. Each column is headed by a Cyber Leader. Is this a mistake, or is there more than one Cyber Leader allowed per army?

Answer: In 'The Five Doctors', three separate Cyberleaders are definitely used. So it's likely that Cyberleaders are like unit commanders, of which a fair-sized army might have several.
