Doctor Who

Delta and the Bannermen - S24-E3

Plot hole: In episode 3, the swarm of "bees" attacking Gavrok and his men look nothing like real bees, being far too large when they approach the camera's position. (In fact, stock footage of a swarm of locusts was used.).

Dragonfire - S24-E4

Plot hole: At the end of episode 1, the 'cliffhanger' ending is that the Doctor climbs over some railings, and then, by looping his umbrella on the railing, he begins to climb down. He looks down and it seems to be a very long way down. This is resolved in episode 2 by having Glitz walk around and let the Doctor step on his shoulders. Not only is it silly, but because Glitz walked around, it also makes the previous 'cliffhanger ending' totally meaningless.

The Three Doctors - S10-E1

Revealing mistake: (Part 4) After Omega takes off his mask and looks in the mirror, when he sees that his physical body doesn't exist he puts his mask back on and screams, but when he shouts, "If I exist only by my will, then my will is to destroy," Omega's mask pops up off his face, and we can see the actor's blackened face as he shouts the last bit of his dialogue.

Question: In which season and episode is Gallifrey destroyed, or is it just a shocking new plot development for the new series?

Answer: It was never destroyed on-screen; it was intact at the end of the TV movie, and destroyed by the start of the 2005 series. It was destroyed in the novel "The Ancestor Cell," but in a completely different manner to what happened in the series.
