Doctor Who (1963)

Doctor Who mistake picture

The Three Doctors - S10-E1

Visible crew/equipment: (Ep. 2) When the Doctor, Jo, and Dr. Tyler are taken into Omega's palace, in the first shot of the multiple passageways (right before Jo says that it looks like Aladdin's cave) the curved chalk actor's mark can be seen on the floor, which can be seen again in three following shots. Note that when they're all escorted further inside, just as Dr. Tyler comments about the matter/anti-matter not making sense, Jon Pertwee can be seen looking down, presumably to make sure he hits his mark.

Doctor Who mistake picture

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.

Visible crew/equipment: (Part 3) After Omega has revealed himself to the Third Doctor, Jo, and Dr. Tyler, when he begins to speak privately to the Doctor the camera casts a shadow on Omega's body. Then after Omega turns around the boom mic dips into view at the top of the screen. And when Omega starts walking forward, the shadow of equipment (presumably the boom and mic) can be seen moving on the far wall, near the lower left of the screen. (00:03:10)

The Hollywood Party - S6-E9

Taylors in Hollywood - S6-E8

Revealing mistake: When Andy, Aunt Bee, and Opie are visiting the studio set while the scene between fake Aunt Bee and fake Andy is being filmed in a fake Taylor living room, note that behind the real Taylors we can see bits of the interior of their Mayberry house scattered in the background offstage. Some things to look for include their living room's stone wall with the mantle, their two reddish chairs (one with the fringe at the bottom), and a wall with their distinctive gold/silver design wallpaper. It's particularly funny when Opie looks at the "fake" living room set and comments, "Is that our house? It sure looks different!" while we the viewers can see the "real" Taylor set behind him. (00:20:35)
