Inferno - S7-E4

Continuity mistake: In episode 4, the Doctor's bow shrinks from when he talks to Liz Shaw while in prison, to when he stows aboard a jeep later. In the DVD commentary, producer Barry Letts blames himself for this mistake.

Plot hole: Just after the Doctor meets the Brigade Leader, he looks at the countdown and says in a very loud voice, "only 3 hours and 22 minutes". Several minutes later, when he leaves the office after stunning Benton, the countdown still reads 3 hours and 22 minutes. Did the countdown clock stop?

Inferno - S7-E4

Continuity mistake: In episode 1, when the Doctor opens the garage doors with his 'door handle', note the two men in the background, the position of the car behind him and the white pillar. In the next shot, the men and pillar disappear and the car moves to a different spot. In the shot after that, the tanker truck is now parked in front of a pillar. You can see near the beginning of episode 3 that there are two entirely different buildings that the tanker had been filmed in front of.

Visible crew/equipment: In episode two, the shadow of the boom mic crosses Jon Pertwee's head as he's giving the "epsilon coordinates" to Liz.

The Ambassadors of Death - S7-E3

Continuity mistake: There are a handful of similar continuity errors, but one that stands out in particular occurs at the end of Episode 1. The Doctor and Liz go into the lab and Taltalian steps out from behind the door wearing glasses and brandishing a gun. However, in the recap at the start of episode 2 he isn't wearing glasses and moves differently.

Revealing mistake: In episode 6, during the generally poor fight sequence between the Brigade Leader and Greg Sutton, Greg's first punch to the face misses the Brigade Leader by miles.

Revealing mistake: In episode one, a wall wobbles as Benton hammers a nail into it.

Revealing mistake: In episode 6, when the Brigade Leader shoots the Primord Stahlmann, he falls down but no bullet holes are made in his costume. Thanks to Producer Barry Letts for spotting this one on the DVD commentary.

Visible crew/equipment: When Liz and the Brigadier are arguing toward the end, a shadow moves in the background. It's in the wrong place and too soon to be the Doctor returning.

Revealing mistake: In episode 5, when the Doctor kills the Primord with the fire extinguisher, he says 'he's dead this time' but the Primord is breathing.

Revealing mistake: In episode 3, when the Doctor is squaring off against the drooling madman, the madman is inside the perimeter railings. When the soldiers shoot him and he 'falls', however, he has moved outside the railings, enabling the stuntman to jump safely.

Spearhead From Space - S7-E1

Audio problem: In episode 3, when the dog is barking at Sam's house and is abruptly silenced (apparently by an Auton), the sound is obviously not a dog barking. It sounds a bit like a man pretending to be a dog, and going "woof woof" not very convincingly.

Spearhead From Space - S7-E1

Audio problem: When the Doctor arrives at UNIT HQ in his stolen car, he speaks to a guard. We see close ups of the guard twice...but watch the brief clip of The Doctor (Jon Pertwee) between the two and you can just see that his lips aren't moving even remotely in synch with the words. (In fact, it is just a repeat of the previous shot of The Doctor, with new lines dubbed in).

Inferno - S7-E4

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the third episode, the countdown reads 49:18:32 in the close up, but when the Brigadier walks across the room it now is on 49:15:01. (In other words three minutes thirty one seconds have elapsed). Yet these two events are about ten seconds apart. Also, the timer should never read either of these times. The professor moved the countdown forward to exactly 49 hours (49:00:00).

Revealing mistake: When the Doctor falls out of the TARDIS, near the beginning, he nearly manages to pull off the entire TARDIS door.

Continuity mistake: Throughout the serial, Bessie's tires are dry in studio shots (inside the Doctor's shed) and wet on location shots.

Audio problem: The music accompanying the closing credits fades down part way through (at a different point in each of the four episodes) and simultaneously fades up at a different point, the net result being a rather disjointed-sounding edit.

Revealing mistake: When Stahlman is killed - the second time - the shot of his green primord face reveals the actors unpainted neck under his beard.

Continuity mistake: Taltalian's French accent mysteriously gives way to an English one in some shots, most notably on location, e.g. when he catches an escaping Liz and says "Get in Miss Shaw".

Audio problem: In episode 3, when the Doctor is squaring off against the drooling madman, it's clear in most of the shots that the sound of the madman's panting is not reflected in his facial and body movements.

The Ambassadors of Death - S7-E3

Continuity mistake: In episode 4 a UNIT sentry (Max Falkner) is seen shooting at one of the ambassadors when he is killed, but in episode 6 he is alive and well and is seen again in the 1976 story The Android Invasion, this time as a corporal.

Other mistake: I know that regeneration causes the doctor to change his appearance, but I didn't know it can produce a tattoo visible on the Doctor's right arm in episode 2.
