Factual error: The story "The War Machines" is (probably) set in London in July 1966. At the time, England, and more specifically London, was hosting the F.I.F.A. World Cup Soccer Tournament. But you wouldn't know it from watching this Doctor Who story... Sir Charles Summers mentions July 12th (1966), which was the day after England played Uruguay at Wembley and the day before Mexico played France. The other matches involving those four were played in London during the time the events of "The War Machines" are supposed to take place, but no mention is made of the fact, there are no foreign football supporters roaming the streets and no flags or posters on display. Did the story take place in an "alternate reality" London of July 1966?
Visible crew/equipment: In Episode 2 when Marc Cory and the other Ambassador are talking, a figure who appears to be wearing Space Security Uniform (and this isn't Nicholas Courtney) and a stage hand walk by, and you can also see the end of the set.

Continuity mistake: In the cliffhanger to episode 1 of this story, as the Daleks approached the TARDIS, the TARDIS door was open. At the beginning of episode 2, seconds after the cliffhanger moment in 1, the door is suddenly closed.
