Doctor Who

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

Corrected entry: In the part where Rose opens up the TARDIS as she flies away, Mickey and Jackie's clothes move in the wind coming off the TARDIS, but the trees around them are still.


Correction: No, they're not. It's more subtle than Mickey's coat and Jackie's hair, but if you look the trees are moving in the wind.

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

Corrected entry: 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. Daleks are known for their hyper-intelligence and a need to exterminate anything different, these Daleks seem more interested in being a bullies or parrots. (00:03:55 - 00:07:55)

Correction: The Doctor explicitly says that he has extended the force field to give them protection. Since the TARDIS is sentient, one presumes that she's extending the field to follow our heroes about.

The Satan Pit (2) - S2-E12

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.

Season 2 generally

Trivia: "Torchwood" is an anagram for Doctor Who. Russell T Davies came up with it during the filming of Series 1 to label the tapes in order to prevent theft and potential leakage, and decided to use the name in the show proper.
