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?

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

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.

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.

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 Space Museum - S2-E7

Continuity mistake: In episode one, Vicki passes her hand through a museum display, making the point that the crew can not 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 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.

Visible crew/equipment: Just before Dortman leaves to test out his bomb, he comes towards the camera. When he's doing this, look at the right side of the screen - you can see a crewmember's shadow. It can't be Barbra or Jenny because they then enter from the left.

The Romans - S2-E4

Factual error: The geographical references in this story are somewhat suspect. Assissium is the modern town of Assissi, some 70 miles north of Rome and the same distance east from the sea. The Great Fire of Rome took place in July 64AD.

The Web Planet - S2-E5

Deliberate mistake: In episode 3 of 'The Web Planet' (titled 'Escape To Danger') watch as one of the Zarbi operators, his vision impaired by the costume, runs right into the camera. So far behind schedule was the recording of this episode, however, that this mistake was retained in the finished episode, as there was no time left for a re-take.
