The World Needs Heroes. Over. - S2-E9

Other mistake: The Doctor, coming up from the basement of his house, is locking both deadbolt locks using a key held in his right hand. He logically would use the same hand to put the key in his upper left pocket. Richard who is watching through binoculars uses a walkie talkie to inform both Ezra and Jules that the Doctor has put the keys in his upper left pocket. However, the next scene shows the Doctor with keys now in his left hand placing the keys in his upper right pocket. This doesn't match what Richard says he observed. (00:24:42)

Heroic - S3-E9

Continuity mistake: The doctor tells June that she needs stitches. He walks away offscreen and his reflection shows that he immediately kneels down. From a different angle, he is standing, walking several meters ahead, and he doesn't kneel after several seconds later.

Ashes, Ashes - S1-E6

The Last Post picture

Episode #1.2 - S1-E2

Factual error: The catalogue of errors made by the SAS team (e.g. being caught out in the open, not posting a watch, not using cover) would be unlikely to be made by an ordinary trained infantryman, let alone an elite special forces unit.

Carol Has a Bully - S1-E9

Audio problem: Right after Carol finishes studying by singing a rap to Katie, Katie congratulates her and Carol hurries out. They exchange several lines of dialogue, but it all appears to be dubbed. During most of the dialogue, each character's mouth is not shown when they speak. However, the cadence of Katie's moving jaw can still be seen from behind, and appears to last longer than the audible speech. Additionally, Katie and Carol can each be heard to speak when it can be glimpsed that their mouths are not moving.

Continuity mistake: When Josh is asking his dad if the cops were hot, from the side he's leaning forwards with both elbows on his knees, then from the front he's more upright with one hand on his knee, arm bent out to the side. (00:09:45)
