Question: When the boat first starts sinking, some nameless crew members are shown trying to sort things out. But I don't remember them appearing again, even when the DJs were being rescued. Did they drown?

Josman

Chosen answer: They can be seen in a couple of long shots of the ship's prow as the DJs shelter there. It's reasonable to assume, given that they were present when the rescue flotilla arrived, that they were picked up as well, just off-screen while the film focused on the main characters.

Factual error: It is stated that removing all the plants caused carbon dioxide levels to drop. But plants absorb Carbon dioxide so removing them would create an increase.

Plot hole: In "The Five Doctors" Susan tells Turloch that she can pilot the TARDIS to some extent. During series 1 and 2, it was clear that she couldn't pilot it at all. She couldn't have been taught between episodes as The Doctor had little idea himself.

Question: My understanding of The Daleks is that they draw their power from their vertical shoulder slats. The new paradigm Daleks have no shoulder slats, so where are they drawing their power from?

Josman

Chosen answer: Don't know where you got that information from, but there doesn't seem to be much around to support it. Models of Dalek shown in very early episodes of the original series got their power from external sources, but since then they have operated entirely on unspecified internal power sources concealed within their armour. No reason to think that the new Daleks are any different.
