Earthshock - S19-E6

Continuity mistake: In episode four, as they approach the TARDIS, the female member of the remaining troopers is grabbed and doesn't make it inside. But when the troopers do get inside the TARDIS, it's a man that's missing.

Earthshock - S19-E6

Continuity mistake: The mouth panel of the Cybermen costumes was originally intended to be a clear perspex panel. During filming, it was felt that this showed too much of the actor inside the Cyberman costumes. So a decision was taking - mid way though filming - to paint over the 'clear' panel with silver paint. However, this does result in the mouth panels of every Cyberman alternating from 'clear' to 'silver' from shot to shot.

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.
