Doctor Who

Pyramids of Mars - S13-E3

Plot hole: It is never explained why so much of the story takes place in England. All of the equipment for Sutekh's rocket comes from his tomb and could just as easily - probably more easily - have been set up right there in Egypt. And at the end, instead of just walking out of his tomb, he takes the spatial corridor to England just so he can get caught in the Doctor's trap.

Pyramids of Mars - S13-E3

Plot hole: Why is the warning about Sutekh broadcast in English? (It clearly is as the Doctor identifies three E's in the transcript).

The Seeds of Doom - S13-E6

Plot hole: At the very end, the TARDIS materializes in Antarctica and Sarah comments that they've returned. But the TARDIS was never there - the Doctor and Sarah went to Antarctica by helicopter.

The Doctor: You can't rule the world in hiding. You've got to come out on the balcony sometimes and wave a tentacle or two.

Planet of Giants - S2-E1

Trivia: This Doctor Who story was originally scripted and produced as a four-episode story, but, just two weeks before transmission, upon viewing the story, co-creators Sydney Newman and Donald Wilson felt that the final two episodes (Episode 3, 'Crisis'; and Episode 4, 'The Urge to Live') should be combined into a single episode. The new 'condensed' episode incorporated the opening titles of 'Crisis' with the closing credits of 'The Urge to Live'.

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.
