Doctor Who

The Next Doctor - S4-E14

Other mistake: When Miss Hartigan is testing the earpod control, the men start off facing her. She instructs them to turn to the right. They turn 90 degrees clockwise. She then tells them to turn to the left. They turn 180 degrees anticlockwise. However, they should have only turned 90 degrees anticlockwise, and end up facing her again. What they actually do is turn on the spot, as opposed to turning left. It takes a further instruction from Miss Hartigan for them to face her again.

The Unquiet Dead - S1-E3

Factual error: When Rose is locked in the room and the bodies come toward her, you can see a modern-day electric light-switch to the side of the door she's trying to get through. When the Doctor hears her screaming for help and runs for her, you can see a central heating radiator. In fact, the undertaker's house has at least two radiators in different hallways. Both are wildly anachronistic for the time period.

Rose - S1-E1

Revealing mistake: When Mickey closes the wheelie bin lid, he then finds the plastic stuck to his hands, he lifts his hands up and the plastic stretches like tar. If you look closely when he lifts his hands up for the first time, you'll see that a shadow of one of his hands is cast on his shirt, but there is no shadow of the strands of plastic stuck to his fingers. Additionally, when he turns around to pull away from the bin, he crosses the strands over each other, but they are still parallel in the following scene.

Army of Ghosts (1) - S2-E15

Continuity mistake: At the start when we see Rose on the bus, a bald man sits down on the seat behind her. However, when the camera is inside the bus, he is sitting two seats behind her, without enough time for him to move.

Dark Water - S8-E11

Factual error: When Clara is speaking on the phone to Danny at the start of the episode her phone shows the call waiting screen for an incoming call from him.

The Runaway Bride - S3-E14

Continuity mistake: When the TARDIS arrives back from the formation of the Earth, the Doctor and Donna rush out leaving the TARDIS door open. And yet in the very next shot, the door is closed.

The Sound of Drums (2) - S3-E12

Continuity mistake: When the Master stands up on the Valiant to announce that he is the Toclafane's "Master", President Winters is visible in the background, only the Toclafane aren't there. In the next shot, they return, buzzing around Winters' head.

New this week Suggested correction: This seems to be caused by angles - the Toclafane are floating fairly high up, around the level of Winters' shoulders and above, but the Master is lower down. Hence, why they're not visible in the shot.

The Pandorica Opens - S5-E12

Revealing mistake: When the Cyberman arm is shooting at the Doctor and Amy, just after the Doctor jumps out to draw its fire, Amy leans on the Pandorica and you can see it bend in, revealing that it's made out of plastic or something.

Rise of the Cybermen (1) - S2-E8

Visible crew/equipment: Everytime we see a close up of Mickey's grandmother's face, we can see the crew and camera reflected in her glasses.

School Reunion - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: When Mickey enters one of the school's computer rooms, dozens of pupils are busy typing, and every one of them is also wearing headphones. However, once Mickey unplugs the main connection for the computers, and shouts for the students to leave, when the students begin to get up, their headphones have instantly removed themselves from their heads and been placed neatly on the desks next to the computer keyboards.

The Girl in the Fireplace - S2-E7

Continuity mistake: When the Doctor is trying to fix the connection from the past to the future through the fireplace, the background of the spaceship can be seen behind the flames whilst there is no connection.

Boom Town - S1-E11

Factual error: Emergency Service vehicles in Cardiff (indeed, throughout Wales) have their signs in bilingual English/Welsh. So the police cars and ambulances seen in this episode should have 'Heddlu'/'Police' and 'Ambwlance'/'Ambulance' bilingual logos. However, the police car seen after the earthquake has its label in Welsh only.

The Christmas Invasion - S2-E2

Revealing mistake: After the Christmas tree has cut through the wall in the Tylers' flat, you can see marker pen where the shape has been drawn and cut out.

Partners in Crime - S4-E1

Continuity mistake: At the end of the episode, Donna piles suitcases in the Doctor's arms in preparation to leave with him in the TARDIS, and places a striped hat box on top. The bags stay that way for a while as the camera cuts back and forth between them, and you can see the stack of luggage as the camera films the Doctor from behind. Then, as soon as the camera cuts back to the Doctor's face when Donna leaves to give her mother the car keys, suddenly he has one bag under his arm and another in his hand, and the rest of the bags are on the ground with the hat box stacked neatly on top. In addition, when the scene cuts from Donna closing the hatch of her car to her and the Doctor standing by the TARDIS, a large floral-patterned suitcase has appeared, which she was not shown removing from the vehicle.

Army of Ghosts (1) - S2-E15

Deliberate mistake: When the Doctor is watching news broadcasts from around the world about the ghosts, the newspeople from France, India and Japan should be heard speaking English because of the TARDIS' automatic translation.

The End of Time: Part Two - S4-E18

Deliberate mistake: When the Doctor visits all his recent companions before he regenerates, he goes to a book signing of A Journal of Impossible Things, written by Joan Redfern's great-granddaughter. When she is signing the book for the Doctor, you can hear the scratching effect from the pen but you can see that the pen isn't touching the paper.

Bad Wolf (1) - S1-E12

Factual error: The Doctor claims the Daleks are hiding themselves from sonar. But sonar relies on sound waves, which can't travel through the vacuum of space.

The Sound of Drums (2) - S3-E12

Factual error: The army shoot at Martha's car and you can see sparks where the bullets bounce off her windscreen. But, at that close range, one of those things can go through a brick! I know you're supposed to allow a bit of disbelief, but this is taking it too far.

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.
