The Parting of the Ways (2) - S1-E13

New this month Plot hole: The extrapolated shield covers the TARDIS and about 3 metres in front of it (it isn't even centred on the TARDIS), thus stopping Dalek lasers. The Doctor and co immediately walk out of this range and out of the cover it provides and spend the next few minutes talking outside this shield. Crazy and trigger-happy Daleks don't resume shooting or attempt to shoot at any point they are outside this shield, even the emperor doesn't take a shot. Side note: This shield can be walked though! Why didn't the Daleks move a metre forwards and resume firing. Dalek are known for their hyper-intelligence and a need to exterminate anything different, these Dalek seem more interested in being a bullies or parrots.

New Earth - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: As the camera zooms out when Rose is captured and Cassandra is about to "go" into Rose, the psychograft disappears, but in the next shot of Rose it appears again.

The Stolen Earth (1) - S4-E12

Continuity mistake: Before Martha uses Project Indigo she doesn't have an ear piece. A shot later when she says, "Bye, Jack", she does (and then takes it out).

The Impossible Planet (1) - S2-E11

Continuity mistake: When the Doctor and Ida descend into the core of Krop Tor, the screen charting their progress shows 39% Oxygen. After cutting away to an overhead shot of the two, the camera cuts back to the same descent display, only now the oxygen percentage (which has been descending constantly all this time) is at 42%.

The Eleventh Hour - S5-E1

Other mistake: When The Doctor tells the Atraxi "Oh, you're not the first lot to have come here, there have been so many," one of the monsters shown from their scan of Earth are a group of Ood. Even if in one of their uprisings they attacked the Earth, it would have been in the far future. The Doctor had no encounter with them on Earth, and he knows them to be peaceful, so why would they be amongst the aliens who have threatened the planet? The only Ood who has been to Earth at this point is Ood Sigma, and he didn't come to attack.

Captain Defenestrator

New Earth - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: Before the Doctor and Rose/Cassandra open one of the booths behind the Doctor there is an empty booth. In the next shot there is one of the Flesh occupying it.

The Family of Blood (2) - S3-E9

Continuity mistake: As the scarecrow-soldiers advance on the school to do battle, the scene cuts to Sister-Of-Mine, looking out from a school window. There is heavy rainfall outside. When we immediately cut back to the advancing scarecrows, it is a cold, clear night.

The Shakespeare Code - S3-E2

Other mistake: When The Doctor and Martha are in their bedroom, there are many candles lit. Later, when Martha blows out one candle, the whole room goes black.

Suggested correction: This is a common film technique, as audiences aren't exactly interested in watching someone walking around the room blowing out candles. She just probably blew them out later, and the pitch black is just showing that part of the room is dark now.

Bad Wolf (1) - S1-E12

Continuity mistake: Just after they break out of the prison cell, you see Lynda reach for her gadgets twice.

Doomsday (2) - S2-E16

Visible crew/equipment: When Rose runs and hugs her mother, near the end of the episode, at the back wheel of the jeep, you can see someone's foot going down and then back up.

The Stolen Earth (1) - S4-E12

Audio problem: When Martha is talking to everyone on her laptop, we can see her mouth moving from the front view. Yet when the camera cuts behind her, she's still talking but we don't see her mouth move.

The Satan Pit (2) - S2-E12

Continuity mistake: Toby is seen crashing headfirst out of the ship but in the shot of his death, he is facing the ship.

The Doctor Dances (2) - S1-E10

Factual error: Magnetic tape recorders weren't available outside of Germany during World War II. True the tape recorder could have been captured from the Germans, but, as it was "cutting edge" technology for 1941, it would hardly be likely to have ended up in a hospital office.

The Poison Sky (2) - S4-E5

Visible crew/equipment: During the warehouse battle, around when the Doctor tells Donna, "Hold on, I'm coming", the film crew can be seen reflected in a door at the right of screen.

Dalek - S1-E6

Revealing mistake: Dalek is escaping and enters the large room with the soldiers. He starts the sprinklers so he can kill them faster. When they show the dead soldiers they show some casings which were ejected from the soldiers' guns. The casings still have projectiles in them. If used, they would have been in magazines and would never fall out like they are shown.

The End of the World - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: Rose Tyler's hairstyle changes from shot to shot when she is discussing being 'the last human' with Cassandra. Rose's hair is in one style for the long shots, and another style for the close-ups.

Add time

Rose - S1-E1

Deliberate mistake: The final Auton attack in this episode is supposed to take place in a busy London street, but it is a pedestrianised area, and several shots reveal this. For example, there are no road markings visible, no apparent distinction between pavement and road, and a bus stop appears to sit in the middle of the 'road'.

The Idiot's Lantern - S2-E10

Factual error: One of the programs on the new television set is "Animal, Vegetable, Mineral?". In 1953 this quiz show was broadcast on Thursdays. But, it's the eve of the coronation, which makes it Monday the 1st of June. "Animal, vegetable, mineral?" wasn't on that evening.

Quotes

Doctor: So, that's the trap. Or the test or the final judgment, I don't know. But if I kill you, I kill her. Except that implies, in this big grand scheme of Gods and Devils, that she's just a victim. But I've seen a lot of this universe. I've seen fake gods and bad gods and demi-gods and would-be gods - out of all that - out of that whole pantheon - if I believe in one thing... Just one thing... I believe in her.
