Doctor Who

Doctor Who (1963)

6 corrected entries in season 14

The Deadly Assassin - S14-E3

Corrected entry: Sorris (the guard sent to kill the Doctor) is shot in the shoulder, but dies clutching his stomach.

Correction: The guard doesn't clutch his stomach, he just falls over.

Matty W

The Talons of Weng-Chiang - S14-E6

Corrected entry: There is more than one giant rat in the sewers, so what happened to the rest of them?

Correction: If you listen carefully, the rats only survive because of Weng-Chiang's tinkering with their biology and constant feeding. They will presumably starve to death without him.

The Talons of Weng-Chiang - S14-E6

Corrected entry: When Doctor Who tried to light the fuse of the 'gas bomb' he has constructed with a "Lucifer" match, watch carefully. The first match snaps in two without lighting; the second match lights...but also snaps and falls to the floor. The Doctor only successfully lights the fuse at the THIRD attempt.

Correction: But he *does* light it with the third match. Lots of people have trouble striking matches - especially 19th century ones. More trivia than a goof.

The Talons of Weng-Chiang - S14-E6

Corrected entry: When the gang of Weng-Chiang's henchmen attack Bullard (the Hansom Cab Driver), the Doctor and Leela go to his rescue. However, Bullard is set upon by FOUR the end of the scene, the Doctor and Leela chase away FIVE henchmen.

Correction: Actually, Bullard is set upon only by Mr. Sin. The thugs then show up to drag him away - a four man job. It's quite possible a fifth man was in the vicinity keeping watch or something and joined in when the fight broke out (the filming is confused and chaotic making it impossible to keep track of all the combatants).

The Robots of Death - S14-E5

Corrected entry: In episode three, after SV7 leaves Toos' quarter, we see Leela banging on the door of the lounge. Just after the scene starts, the gold statue in the foreground lights up as thought the lighting cue came in a bit late.

Correction: It could have been on a movement sensor, and the delayed reaction was due to the sensor not picking up the movement soon enough.

Mad Ade

The Talons of Weng-Chiang - S14-E6

Corrected entry: When the Doctor recovers from being made unconscious as a result of the Dragon Ray, he suddenly sits bolt upright, and says to Litefoot and Jago: "There's a one eyed yellow idol to the North of Khatmandu. There's a little marble cross below the town." "Kipling?", Litefoot asks. "Harry Champion, 1920", replies the Doctor. was a certain J.Milton Hayes who wrote those lines, and many years AFTER the period in which this story is set.

Correction: This isn't the only occasion where The Doctor just makes something up. I believe it was supposed to be "impishly amusing" rather than incorrect.

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.



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 the first place, before engaging in a 15-minute chase?



The first thing the Third Doctor does on-screen is collapse out of the TARDIS, which is also the last thing he does in that incarnation.
