Doctor Who

Doomsday (2) - S2-E16

Corrected entry: The Daleks "plunge" Raj to get information about the Cybermen. Raj was locked away in the sphere chamber when the Cybermen revealed themselves as the ghosts, so he shouldn't have known, therefore the Daleks shouldn't know.

Correction: The Daleks don't know that there are Cybermen until Dalek Thay goes outside to investigate. Dalek Sec specifically says that there is another species invading Earth, infected with the superstition of ghosts. The specific wording of the statement implies that the Daleks got information on the "ghosts" from Raj, and deduced that they were another group of invaders as a result, but at that point still don't know who they are.

Correction: Raj's earpiece has communication technology. Someone in the building may have called him and told him about the situation, but it happened off camera.

Doomsday (2) - S2-E16

Corrected entry: The Doctor phones Jackie just as she runs past a sign which says E6. However, she later looks at a sign which says E3. Figures refer to staircase numbers, not floor numbers.


Correction: I've watched this episode again and the sign on the staircase says N3 not E3.


Doomsday (2) - S2-E16

Corrected entry: The Daleks and Cybermen are pulled through the breach because of the "background radiation" that they gained when travelling between the two worlds. However, the Cybermen that were converted in the real world did not travel between worlds, so therefore had no background radiation on them, so should not have been pulled through the breach.

Correction: The people converted haven't travelled between worlds, but the technology that's been grafted onto them has. The technology's pulled through the breach like everything else, taking the convertee with it.

Doomsday (2) - S2-E16

Corrected entry: When the Doctor organises the huge vacuum, you see hundreds of Daleks being sucked in, but no Cybermen. Even if they were being sucked through somewhere else, there are still enough nearby to get sucked through there. They're not that much smaller.

Correction: According to the writers, the Cybermen were pulled back through the cracks in reality that they originally came through, rather than being sucked into the breach.

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.
