Doctor Who

The Leisure Hive - S18-E1

Plot hole: The Doctor and Romana comment on a recording which has finished playing before they have entered the room. Not only that, but all the other characters behave as if the Doctor and Romana had seen this recording.

The Leisure Hive - S18-E1

Revealing mistake: In episode 1, watch out for the wires pulling K-9 along the beach. (Unlike a real dog, K-9 didn't take well to the soft sandy surface and sank into the sand. Pulling K-9 along on wires provided an illusion of movement when the motor inside wasn't up to the job).

Logopolis - S18-E7

Continuity mistake: The Doctor somehow manages to secure his scarf across the catwalk, despite having only gone on seconds before the Master. He then manages to put it on again during the seconds it takes for the Master to alter the angle.

Josman

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.
