Doctor Who

Rise of the Cybermen (1) - S2-E8

Other mistake: When the Doctor finds the crystal and blows on it, it glows brightly. While it lights up his face as it should, the backs of his hands light up, apparently from the crystal. This is not possible, as the light comes from in front when the crystal is inside the Doctor's hands. (00:14:55)

Rise of the Cybermen (1) - S2-E8

Other mistake: Alternate Jackie is said to be turning 40. According to a newspaper Mickey finds early in the episode, the parallel universe is in the same year as the main universe. When Jackie's age (she claims to be only turning 39) is announced at the party, Rose does not in any way react as though that's different from the age of main-universe Jackie. The problem is that, given that Rose was 19 when she met the Doctor, and it has been, for main Jackie and Mickey, likely at least two years since the events of "Rose" (remember Rose's one-year accidental disappearance), this means Jackie would have had to have gotten married, and had Rose, before she turned twenty, and been a widow by the time she was twenty. Given that Jackie is from the UK, a first-world country, and that she seems to be in her twenties in "Father's Day", this is highly unlikely.

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. (00:11:45)

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.
