Doctor Who

Turn Left - S4-E11

Plot hole: In this episode, the Doctor is said to have died during the events of "The Runaway Bride." As a result, he was not able to prevent the spaceship Titanic from crashing in London. It is later shown that southeast England was obliterated by the explosion. This falls far short of what the Doctor mentioned in "Voyage of the Damned", wherein he frantically repeated that if the Titanic crashed, the drive's explosion would wipe out all 6 billion people on the Earth (that's the entire human race at the time of the show's airing).

Turn Left - S4-E11

Continuity mistake: The house that Donna and her family are shown living in in Series 4 is different from the house the Doctor dropped her off at at the end of her first appearance, "The Runaway Bride." You would assume they'd merely moved - except that in this episode, Donna and her family are shown living in their Series 4 house before the events of "The Runaway Bride", on the day Donna gets the job that leads to her meeting the Doctor in the first place.

Turn Left - S4-E11

Continuity mistake: In this episode, Rose's teeth look different than in all her other appearances. She also has a different accent, both for no apparent reason.

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.
