Doctor Who

Doctor Who (1963)

5 corrected entries in season 11

Planet of the Spiders - S11-E5

Corrected entry: Near the end of episode five, Tommy rescues the Doctor and Sarah from the cellar. The spider-controlled men pursue and start banging on the cellar door. When they do, it wobbles quite a bit.

Correction: Doors often wobble if hammered on, particularly old ones. Not a mistake.

Josman

The Time Warrior - S11-E1

Corrected entry: It's an unexplained mystery as to how Irongron's men managed to get Linx's ship into the castle cellar without taking out half the wall or even denting the ship's bodywork...

Correction: Considering that Linx's ship is in need of massive repair, it's not unreasonable that he could have taken it apart for transport.

The Monster of Peladon - S11-E4

Corrected entry: Eckersely - who supposedly knows the mines better than even the natives of Peladon - drags the queen through the same set twice - once each way.

Correction: Duplicate entry.

Matty W

Planet of the Spiders - S11-E5

Corrected entry: Neither the humans nor Spiders use the word "Spider", instead referring to them as "Eight-Legs". But when the colonists go off to attack the Spider lair, you can hear some of the extras shouting "Death to the Spiders" instead of "Death to the Eight-Legs".

DaveJB

Correction: That's the entire point of the scene. They are rebelling against the spiders and using the forbidden word as an act of defiance.

The Time Warrior - S11-E1

Corrected entry: The English county of "Wessex" ceased to exist after the Norman Invasion in 1066. This episode is set in the 12th century (and Irongron specifically references the Normans), so the use of Wessex is an anachronism.

Correction: The earldom of Wessex ceased to exist, but the name would not have simply vanished from the language, even though it no longer referred to a specific political entity. It is, in fact, still in use today to describe the appropriate area.

Quotes

The Doctor: You can't rule the world in hiding. You've got to come out on the balcony sometimes and wave a tentacle or two.

Mistakes

At the climax of episode 2, the Doctor is about to catch Lupton when the latter simply teleports to safety. So why didn't he do that in first place - before engaging in a 15-minute chase.
