Doctor Who

The Stolen Earth (1) - S4-E12

Audio problem: When Martha is talking to everyone on her laptop, we can see her mouth moving from the front view. Yet when the camera cuts behind her, she's still talking but we don't see her mouth move.

The Stolen Earth (1) - S4-E12

Continuity mistake: Before Martha uses Project Indigo she doesn't have an ear piece. A shot later when she says, "Bye, Jack", she does (and then takes it out).

Journey's End (2) - S4-E13

Continuity mistake: When the Daleks capture the TARDIS in the chronon loop, the TARDIS is the right way up. But when it is being pulled towards the Crucible, it is upside down.

Planet of the Ood - S4-E3

Visible crew/equipment: Soon after the Doctor and Donna are blasted back there is fake snow on the camera, indicating there's a camera there.

The Poison Sky (2) - S4-E5

Visible crew/equipment: During the warehouse battle, around when the Doctor tells Donna, "Hold on, I'm coming", the film crew can be seen reflected in a door at the right of screen.

The End of Time: Part Two - S4-E18

Deliberate mistake: When the Doctor visits all his recent companions before he dies, he goes to a book signing of "The Journal of Impossible Things" written by Joan Redfern's great grandchild. When she is signing the book for the Doctor, you can hear the scratching effect from the pen but you can clearly see that the pen isn't touching the paper.

The Next Doctor - S4-E14

Other mistake: When Miss Hartigan is testing the earpod control, the men start off facing her. She instructs them to turn to the right. They turn 90 degrees clockwise. She then tells them to turn to the left. They turn 180 degrees anticlockwise. However, they should have only turned 90 degrees anticlockwise, and end up facing her again. What they actually do is turn on the spot, as opposed to turning left. It takes a further instruction from Miss Hartigan for them to face her again.

The Poison Sky (2) - S4-E5

Continuity mistake: When Colonel Mace confronts Commander Skorr, he raises his gun twice; once in one shot, and immediately after in the other.

Journey's End (2) - S4-E13

Plot hole: Davros said that the reality bomb would destroy all parallel universes. He fails in the Doctor's universe, but the Doctor said in an earlier episode that every decision creates a new parallel universe, like if Donna had walked out of the TARDIS with Jack, Rose, and the Doctor. She wouldn't have imbued herself with Time Lordness, so Davros would have succeeded. This means that all the universes, including the Doctor's one, should have been destroyed, because if the Reality bomb only succeeds in one universe, it would destroy all the others as well.

The Doctor's Daughter - S4-E6

Other mistake: Martha falls into the bog and Hath Peck rushes down to help her. She calls out "Help me, Peck!" but the subtitles read "Help me peg!" This is just one of many errors in this series' subtitles, which seem to have been added by listening to the dialogue without reference to the script.

The End of Time: Part Two - S4-E18

Revealing mistake: Throughout certain points of the episode, you can see the Master's real brown hair through his blonde wig.

The Next Doctor - S4-E14

Continuity mistake: When The Doctor grabs the rope there are several metres more behind him. But, as he's hoisted off the ground, he is almost at the end.

Planet of the Dead - S4-E15

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the episode, the police are chasing the bus and they give the numberplate as starting with 'Whiskey zero four seven' (Or something similar). That is W047, yet later on when the flying bus comes through the rift in time/space, the numberplate is completely different. This is because whilst filming in Dubai, the original bus broke down and had to be replaced.

Partners in Crime - S4-E1

Continuity mistake: At the end of the episode, Donna piles suitcases in the Doctor's arms in preparation to leave with him in the TARDIS, and places a striped hat box on top. The bags stay that way for a while as the camera cuts back and forth between them, and you can see the stack of luggage as the camera films the Doctor from behind. Then, as soon as the camera cuts back to the Doctor's face when Donna leaves to give her mother the car keys, suddenly he has one bag under his arm and another in his hand, and the rest of the bags are on the ground with the hat box stacked neatly on top.

The End of Time: Part Two - S4-E18

Revealing mistake: When the female Vinvocci is telling the male Vinvocci not to respond the Master's message, you can see a patch of non-green skin on the female Vinvocci's face.

The Doctor's Daughter - S4-E6

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Cobb is briefing his troops, the troops all have their guns, but in the other scene (after you see the Hath marching) the troops are receiving guns.

The Poison Sky (2) - S4-E5

Continuity mistake: Near the end, when Luke teleports and switches places with the Doctor on the Sontaran ship, Luke catches the hand bomb thing twice, once in the wide shot and then again in his POV.

Partners in Crime - S4-E1

Continuity mistake: At the start, the first shot of Donna seated in the auditorium of Adipose Industries is flipped. The mole on her chin should be on the right, but in this shot it's on the left.

The End of Time - S4-E17

Continuity mistake: After the Master changes all humans into copies of himself and Wilf says, "What have you done, you monster!?", it goes to all the different masters in the room saying, "Are you talking to me?" The Abigail Naysmith-Master is shorter than the Joshua Naysmith-Master. In another shot they are the same height. The Abigail Naysmith-Master is wearing very high heels and should be taller than the other Masters.
