Doctor Who

The Mind Robber - S6-E2

Other mistake: When the Doctor pulls Zoe and Jamie back into the TARDIS, look at the scanner screen. It has the words 'Producer Peter Bryant' written on it.

The War Games - S6-E7

Plot hole: Despite being asked to memorise all the locations and war zone commanders, Zoe's photographic memory lets her down: her first words to the Mexican leader are 'Who are you?'.

The Invasion - S6-E3

Audio problem: The first victim of the hypnotic signal stops walking when he hears it, but the sound of his footsteps continues for several seconds afterwards.

The Mind Robber - S6-E2

Other mistake: The Master says he wrote 5,000 words a week for 25 years and Zoe says "but that's over half a million words." Yes it is, to be exact, six and a half million words. (5,000 x 52 x 25 = 6,500,000).

The War Games - S6-E7

Plot hole: The map of the "War Zones" where the Aliens are conducting their War Games can be seen several times in this story. The map is visibly divided into 11 zones. Yet, during this story, the "War Zones" visited or referred to total THIRTEEN.

The Dominators - S6-E1

Continuity mistake: At many points in this story there are problems with the costume that Zoe is wearing...the zip is often jammed part or all the way open. Not only does this leave most of her back exposed, but the position of the zip tends to change position during scenes, as while off camera Zoe tries to pull the zip back up, only for it to open up again minutes later. (It is a little unkind to say it, but possibly the costume was a little bit too tight for Zoe, causing it 'self unzip'?).

The Mind Robber - S6-E2

Continuity mistake: This story starts off where the previous story ('The Dominators') finished, but Jamie says something completely different to alert the Doctor to the approaching lava flow.

The Seeds of Death - S6-E5

Continuity mistake: Patrick Troughton's sideburns keep appearing and disappearing, depending on whether what is being shown is location filming or studio.

The Invasion - S6-E3

Revealing mistake: The Cyberman that falls from the roof in the final episode is obviously an empty costume. (This is another example of a mistake being repeated from an earlier episode. See the earlier story "The Tomb of the Cybermen" for a note about the same 'revealing' mistake happening).

The War Games - S6-E7

Continuity mistake: The end of episode 7 does not match the reprise of the story at the start of episode 8. The Doctor, Security Chief and guards file into the SIDRAT in a different order.

The Dominators - S6-E1

Plot hole: When Jamie and Cully go on the offensive, Jamie lures a quark away from a drilling site into a narrow valley, then Cully drops a boulder onto it. Yet when we see the crushed quark, it is next to a drill, on flat land.

The Mind Robber - S6-E2

Continuity mistake: Near the end of episode three, Jamie starts to read the printout. At first, he is reading the printout the right way round. But when we next see him, he seems to be reading it upside down. Then the third time we see him, he is back to reading it correctly (right way up).

The Seeds of Death - S6-E5

Revealing mistake: When Jamie is wrestling with one of the Ice Warriors in a storage room, one of them gives the wall an almighty knock and it nearly falls down.

The Mind Robber - S6-E2

Continuity mistake: When the TARDIS breaks apart and the console sent spinning off into space, Zoe is lying on it. In close-ups she lying on her left side facing towards Jamie (who is opposite), but in the distance shots done with small models, she is lying on her right side facing away from Jamie.

The War Games - S6-E7

Revealing mistake: When the resistance are storming the landing bay, one of them punches at least a foot to the right of a guard's face, but he still collapses.
