The Impossible Astronaut - S6-E2

Continuity mistake: When the Doctor is shot and killed while trying to regenerate on the beach, he falls with both legs extended. When River, Amy and Rory run up to him his left leg is bent. The camera cuts away again, and when it cuts back to show the Doctor's body one more time both legs are straight again. In addition, his left arm changes position between shots, between stretched out pointing away from his body on close-ups to bent with his hand resting on his thigh in wider shots. (00:08:15)

Visible crew/equipment: Just after Amy comes out of the bathroom, a boom mic can be seen popping up behind the agent's shoulder. (00:28:55)

The Impossible Astronaut - S6-E2

Revealing mistake: When the Doctor is struck by the green light emitted from the astronaut, his right thigh momentarily disappears due to the animation. (This is even more visible when looking at the still of this shot on the Doctor Who website).

Continuity mistake: When the school bus pulls up to drop Amy and Rory off in Monument Valley, there are no other vehicles in the area. When the bus pulls away, the Doctor has suddenly appeared with a vintage station wagon, parked by the side of the road where it should have been perfectly visible. And he was sitting on the hood, implying he'd been waiting there for a bit.

Continuity mistake: When the Doctor starts walking over to the lakeshore after the astronaut appears, he's still holding the wine bottle in his right hand. In the next shot where we can see his hand, the bottle is gone, without him having stopped to put it down.

Other mistake: After River shoots at the astronaut going into the lake, she drops her arm. The next second, she turns around and the gun is holstered without her having made any movement to do so, and there was no sound made.

Suggested correction: The holster is low enough for the subtle movement her right arm makes to be using it. As for the sound, the removal of her gun doesn't make a sound either. The only sound heard is directly before it when she put her medical scanner away.

The Impossible Astronaut - S6-E2

Visible crew/equipment: The astronaut coming out of the lake is seen twice in series 6: In episode 1, "The Impossible Astronaut", and in episode 13, "The Wedding of River Song." In "The Wedding of River Song", when the helmet of the suit is lifted the astronaut is revealed to be River Song. However, in "The Impossible Astronaut", when the helmet was lifted, a man's beard can be seen. Since it is a man in the suit, then it was just a double seen in "The Impossible Astronaut."

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.

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.
