Doctor Who

The Twin Dilemma - S21-E7

Audio problem: In episode 1, the Doctor hits something on the central console (not the door control) and walks towards the door. The door doesn't open, but the sound of the door opening is still heard.

The Twin Dilemma - S21-E7

Plot hole: Azmael doesn't recognise the regenerated Doctor (In the shape of Colin Baker) whereas on most other occasions other Time Lords do recognize each other through telepathy. This is odd behaviour by Azmael, considering that Azmael and the Doctor HAVE actually met before, and possibly more than once. (Azmael last met the Doctor in the Doctor's fourth incarnation, and was the best teacher the Doctor ever had. On that occasion, Azmael got drunk.).

Resurrection of the Daleks - S21-E4

Audio problem: Davros' lips don't move when he says, "Now for the Daleks," just before he releases the Dalek-killing virus.

The Caves of Androzani - S21-E6

Factual error: Sharaz Jek's monitor that displays the tunnels and his androids is inaccurate. The white blobs are, as we learn later, supposed to represent his androids. He tells the Doctor that the green area is held by the army, yet on the screen the green area is populated by androids, so they could not have had control.

The Caves of Androzani - S21-E6

Revealing mistake: When Stotz cuts a hole in his ship's door, you can see that the inside of it is made of white polystyrene. They painted the outside of it but obviously forgot about the inside. Also listen to the sound it makes when Stotz punches the hole through - it sounds exactly like polystyrene.

The Caves of Androzani - S21-E6

Factual error: When the Doctor is trying to land the ship, from the video screen it appears that they are moving towards the planet way too fast to make such a safe and quick landing. Also, the ship doesn't seem to have even penetrated the planet's atmosphere yet it lands seconds later.

The Caves of Androzani - S21-E6

Revealing mistake: When the Doctor is looking for a way to break through his manacles, he brushes against the machine with the bright light that he eventually uses to cut them. When he does, it wobbles when it obviously should remain motionless.

The Caves of Androzani - S21-E6

Revealing mistake: It's already been mentioned that Peri bounces off a mattress, but watch what happens when the Doctor walks over to see if she's all right. The 'cave' floor visibly moves under his foot.

Daz

Resurrection of the Daleks - S21-E4

Revealing mistake: When Lytton and his men approach the self-destruct chamber in episode three, the door is closed in front of them. It wobbles as it closes.

The Awakening - S21-E2

Revealing mistake: When the crack in the wall breaks open, the wall wobbles rather obviously.

Continuity mistake: When the Doctor and Peri first land on Androzani, mountains are seen in the background. They disappear when Peri picks up the silica. A couple of shots later, they're back. (This mistake was mentioned on the DVD commentary; the mountain effect was left out for financial reasons).

The Awakening - S21-E2

Visible crew/equipment: As the Doctor is watching Will emerge from the priest-hole, look over his shoulder at the far corner. Someone or something appears to be moving in the shadows there.

Visible crew/equipment: The boom mike is visible at the top of the screen when one of Jek's androids is handing spectrox to the mercenaries. The shadow of the boom pole is also visible on the roof beam.

Daz

Resurrection of the Daleks - S21-E4

Revealing mistake: When the Doctor is shooting the Dalek creature hidden under the coat, he is obviously using blanks because when you see the coat there are no bullet holes in it.

The Twin Dilemma - S21-E7

Revealing mistake: The bottle of acid that the Doctor throws at Mestor breaks open well before it hits the shield that Mestor is projecting around himself.

Revealing mistake: In the very first shot of Morgus' hand-held computer, it's obvious it's a TV remote. Look for the controls for contrast and tint.

Resurrection of the Daleks - S21-E4

Other mistake: When the Doctor's mind is scanned, we see his previous incarnations and companions, but Leela is not shown. Katarina is represented by a black and white photograph.

Continuity mistake: When the Doctor is climbing through the tunnel to the Queen bat, note the question mark on his lapel: the image is reversed.

The Caves of Androzani - S21-E6

Revealing mistake: When Peri falls into the spectrox nest, watch for her to reappear as she bounces off a mattress.

The Awakening - S21-E2

Other mistake: What happens to Tegan's bag when the plague victim transforms into the cavalier? It doesn't appear to be left behind, even when the cavalier later vanishes.
