Doctor Who

The Empty Child (1) - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: During the Doctor and Nancy's conversation at her hideout, in shots facing her there is a bright circle of light cast on the wall to her left, which her shadow partially overlaps.

Father's Day - S1-E8

Continuity mistake: When Rose checks her messages while riding in Pete's car and hears the very first phone call instead, the positions of her fingers change between the wider shot and the close-up. (00:13:30)

The Long Game - S1-E7

Continuity mistake: When the Doctor is restrained by two of the Editor's corpse minions, and the Editor demands to know who he is, the hand of the one holding the Doctor's right arm moves between his chest and shoulder several times. (00:30:50)

Dalek - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: When Rose and Adam are in his workshop talking about aliens, during the exchange where she asks him about people who claim they've been in spaceships and he responds that he thinks they're nutters, Rose is poking around with her right hand at a storage shelf on the wall before moving her hand to a pile of boxes stacked on a table. When the scene cuts to a close-up of her, her hand has jumped back to the shelf. (00:12:40)

Aliens of London (1) - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: When Jackie is reporting the Doctor to the alien helpline, her grip on the cordless phone changes between shots. (00:29:55)

Aliens of London (1) - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: When Joseph Green (really Jacrassa Fel-Fotch Passameer-Day Slitheen) picks up the skin of Oliver Charles from the Cabinet table, he picks it up with his left hand in the first shot but is holding it with his right hand in the next. (00:32:30)

Aliens of London (1) - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: When Jackie is yelling at the Doctor about Rose's yearlong disappearance, in a shot facing her she turns her head to her right, then in a shot facing the Doctor she does it again. (00:04:00)

Aliens of London (1) - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: When the Doctor and Rose are talking on the roof, just before the spaceship appears, Rose's hair is blowing in the wind in shots facing the Doctor, but mostly still in shots facing her. (00:05:10)

Aliens of London (1) - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: During Harriet Jones' introduction, her grip on her ID card changes between shots. (00:12:25)

Aliens of London (1) - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: When the coroner is interrupted by a banging coming from the freezer while trying to do paperwork, she's shown turning around and standing up twice, in a close-up and the long shot. (00:19:20)

The Unquiet Dead - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: Early on, when Rose is talking to the Doctor about how amazing it is that they can visit days that only happened once, her hair moves from tucked behind her ear to covering it, then back to its first position. (00:05:00)

The End of the World - S1-E2

Audio problem: When Rose is sitting in the observation deck, after she looks at the tree cutting and suggests they might be related, when she puts it back down, it makes a "clink" sound, as if made of metal, despite being in a sort of cardboard cup. (00:15:20)

The End of the World - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: When Rose pulls out her phone and checks for a signal, she's holding it with two hands in the shots facing her, but only with one hand in the shots from behind her. (00:17:50)

The End of the World - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: When the Doctor is putting a new battery in Rose's phone, which hand he's holding it with keeps changing between shots. (00:18:00)

The End of the World - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: When the Doctor is standing in front of the giant whirring fanblades, just before he passes the first one, which side of his jacket is blowing away from his body changes between the wide shot and the close-up. (00:35:20)

Rose - S1-E1

Revealing mistake: There are some moments during the scene where the Doctor is being strangled by the Auton arm where it's fairly obvious that Christopher Eccleston is holding the arm to his own throat. Namely, the moments where the hand isn't quite in the right position, slipping towards his chin.

Rose - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: After the Doctor freezes the Auton arm, its index and middle fingers are curled, while its ring and pinky fingers are straightened. When the Doctor and Rose are in the stairwell, most noticeable when they emerge at the bottom, the fingers of the arm are now all slightly curled.

Rose - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: During Mickey's struggle with the plastic trash bin, the angles of sunlight and shadows keep changing between shots.

Rose - S1-E1

Revealing mistake: When the Doctor fires a champagne cork into Auton-Mickey's head, the lack of spraying or leaking wine, even when the Doctor is seen holding the open bottle horizontally immediately afterwards, makes it quite clear that the champagne bottle is actually empty.

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.
