Other mistake: The Tyrannosaurus rex which appears in this story does not actually roar; instead it says the word 'roar' several times. There may be little scientific evidence as to what sound a T. Rex made, but it is unlikely that any of them spoke fluent English.
Plot hole: How did UNIT soldiers manage to get the TARDIS through an ordinary door into the Doctor's dorm in the research centre? The Doctor's labs in the various UNIT HQs had either double doors or a removable partition wall. The research centre is supposed to be an ordinary country house with single doors and solid walls. The TARDIS is larger than the average wardrobe and, unlike most modern wardrobes, doesn't come apart so it can be got through doorways. The TARDIS is known to be a "Type 40 capsule"...but there's never been any mention of the TARDIS being an IKEA-style "flat pack self-assembly" time machine...
Continuity mistake: In episode 2, when the Doctor and Brig arrive at the scene to stun the dinosaur, they leave the stun gun in the jeep. Mike Yates glances down at it and we can see that the sabotage disk is already attached - although he doesn't actually put it on until later.
Factual error: How did potatoes come to appear in a 12th century kitchen? The potato was unknown in England until Sir Walter Raleigh brought them from back from the Americas on one of his voyages in the late 16th century, at least 400 years after the period in which this story is set.
Continuity mistake: In episode three, Eckersley turns on the security monitor. The very first image is of the entrance to the refinery, but it does not show the Doctor and Gebek trying to break in. Eckersley then flips through the images and finds one of the refinery with the Doctor and Gebek breaking in.
Plot hole: The temperature of the air being blown into the mines is controlled from the communications room when the Doctor needs to knock out the Ice Warriors. But conveniently, the ventilation system is controlled from the refinery when Eckersley needs to suffocate the miners.
