Revealing mistake: In episode 3, when the Doctor is squaring off against the drooling madman, the madman is inside the perimeter railings. When the soldiers shoot him and he 'falls', however, he has moved outside the railings, enabling the stuntman to jump safely. (00:10:40)

Plot hole: 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?

Question: In which season and episode is Gallifrey destroyed, or is it just a shocking new plot development for the new series?

Answer: It was never destroyed on-screen; it was intact at the end of the TV movie, and destroyed by the start of the 2005 series. It was destroyed in the novel "The Ancestor Cell," but in a completely different manner to what happened in the series.
