* How did Ace communicate with the natives of Ice World? She was hurled untold years through time and space and there was no Tardis Communication Circuits around to help her. Must have been an interesting first few months.
* The infamous episode 1 cliffhanger...why does it exist when there's a perfectly good cliff hanger they could have ended on. While the Doctor is pointlessly dangling for his life, the girls have just encountered the bloody dragon everyone had been talking about all episode!
* Why did Mel leave? Seems there was some basic reason for it but it's as nebulous as the circumstances of her arrival.

** Do we ever actually see it leave? Because this troper finds the idea of it still in there all these years later lost in the endless corridors of the Tardis rather amusing.

** Even taking the plot twist at face value it doesn't make all that sense given if the Doctor is half time lord and its primed to him then it should work for both Time Lords and Humans. The most likely explanation is that the Doctor just configured it to humans because he both trusts them and thinks them too stupid to obliterate reality with the eye (and if he ever needs to use it himself humans are the one race he probably has on hand). Where's time lord are a notoriously corrupt and dangerous species who definitely would try to use the eye hence protecting it from them is wise. Hell that's probably the entire reason its in his Tardis and not under the citadel to begin with.

** Where else are they going to store it? On their own ship? Where if it breaks it'll kill them all.

\n*** Saving a quarter of reality itself sounds like a decent enough reason if any to bastardize a Tardis. Though maybe the size of the paradox has an effect and it's simply too big a situations for one machine to handle. Or alternatively, if you're an optimist, the time lords did exactly that and everyone was saved !Hooray! Not like anyone ever mentions a massive amount of reality suddenly not existing in any subsequent episodes (except for Nyssa occasionally mentioning Trakken in which case she simply might not have been informed. She oddly doesn't make much of a big deal about being the last of her world).

** They live in the remains of their former city, so it's probably just a remnant.

** The classic series was always very sloppy about scientific terminology - for a show that includes space as a setting, the writers didn't seem to know the difference between a planetary (stellar or "solar" system) and a galaxy, for one thing. It was often hard to tell if they meant stellar system(s), a/the galaxy/galaxies, or the universe, as all three terms would be thrown about more or less as it pleased them.

Given that, it's not surprising if they didn't know the difference between robotics, cybernetics, and bionics.
