Doctor Who

Planet of Giants - S2-E1

Plot hole: The miniaturized TARDIS crew never interact with the other characters in this story, because, as the Doctor points out, the 'giants' will be unable to hear them, as their voices will be on a different wavelength. So why does the Doctor later suggest using the telephone to try to call for help?

The Chase - S2-E8

Audio problem: Before the TARDIS materialises in the haunted house, you can hear the Daleks' time machine sound effect for no apparent reason.

The Dalek Invasion of Earth - S2-E2

Other mistake: Ian has completely forgotten the distinctive shape of a Dalek. It's only when the Dalek starts speaking that Ian says to the Doctor, "that voice". Yet later when they are at the saucer, he talks to the Doctor about the new back of the Dalek having a disk on them now.

Revealing mistake: In the end part of this story, in the large spider's den, the string supporting it is visible.

The Dalek Invasion of Earth - S2-E2

Factual error: The Doctor states that the Daleks invaded Earth because it is the only planet with a magnetic core. In fact, every planet in the solar system has a magnetic core.

Visible crew/equipment: When the rebels attack the Dalek saucer, a Dalek asks what sector the prisoners were taken from, and in the bottom left hand corner a giant boom mike comes into view.

The Dalek Invasion of Earth - S2-E2

Revealing mistake: In episode 1, one of the windows on the TARDIS is leaning in, but by the time we get to episode 6 it has managed to fix itself. Also when the bridge falls down you can see the poster through the gap, showing that there is no back to the TARDIS.

The Chase - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: When Frankenstein's Monster begins chasing the Daleks, he's wrapped in bandages. When he catches the Daleks in the room with the TARDIS, he's suddenly wearing a suit.

The Space Museum - S2-E7

Continuity mistake: In episode one, Vicki passes her hand through a museum display, making the point that the crew cannot interact with their environment. A moment later, she bumps into a statue, making it wobble.

The Chase - S2-E8

Revealing mistake: When the robotic Doctor first appears - and in many of the later scenes involving the jungle on Mechanus - it is very obviously not William Hartnell playing him, but a vaguely similar double. In addition, his lines have been dubbed by Hartnell and do not always match the movements of his mouth.

The Dalek Invasion of Earth - S2-E2

Revealing mistake: When a rebel throws a bomb from the second floor of the Dalek saucer, notice it explodes too early and in the wrong place.
