It doesn't really make sense that the Sensorites can't tell each other apart.  Even if they looked identical to us (which they don't really) they'd be used to distinguishing individuals.

Also, eyes that dilate in light and contract in dark make no evolutionary sense at all, since it's an anti-survival characteristic.

When Barbara is reading the note that Susan wrote, it is different from the one we actually saw written.

I'm not sure if this is actually a blooper, but the Doctor calls Maitland 'John', though that is never stated as his name in the story.

Maybe it's the actors name?

I thought that might have been it so I checked, and his real name is Lorne, so it's not that.

One of the Sensorites flubs a line, saying he 'heard the humans overtalking', which I found quite funny.

Oh, and of course wobbly sets to the extreme, including a wall falling on Ian.

No, it's one of the other characters.

This might not be a blooper, but the Doctor doesn't allocate Susan to a group and so she just picks her own. It may have been in the script that way, but I assumed that Hartnell forgot.

The actors playing the Sensorites have real trouble walking in their suits.
