Doctor Who

The Sontaran Stratagem (1) - S4-E4

Continuity mistake: When Ross makes his "round the bend" pun while turning the Jeep onto Rattigan Academy's drive, the road seen doesn't match up with what's shown on the GPS display. (00:26:20)

The Unicorn and the Wasp - S4-E7

Continuity mistake: When Agatha shows the Unicorn's case of tools to everyone when they're all gathered in the parlour, the case is shown open just before she's shown opening it. (00:29:50)

The Next Doctor - S4-E14

Factual error: During the climax, the Moon is visible in the background, and is depicted as full. On December 24, 1851 in real life, the Moon was at first quarter phase.

The Eleventh Hour - S5-E1

Continuity mistake: At the end of the hospital roof scene, as the Atraxi are flying away, the Doctor is seen reacting to the TARDIS key in his jacket pocket heating up twice. (00:54:20)

Hide - S7-E11

Factual error: The Doctor says that the Earth is six billion years old, which is one and a half billion years over - it's only 4.5 billion years old. (00:21:25)

Smith and Jones - S3-E1

Audio problem: When Martha says "We're on the Moon. We're on the bloody Moon," her reflection is visible in the window in front of her. Her lips don't move. (00:07:35)

Army of Ghosts (1) - S2-E15

Continuity mistake: In the sphere room the Doctor briefs Yvonne and Rajesh on the void. As he sits down in front of them you see Jackie's feet start walking towards them but the next cut behind Yvonne and Rajesh facing the Doctor shows Jackie isn't there. (00:25:15)

Face the Raven - S9-E11

Continuity mistake: When the Shade leaves Clara and she falls, her body is twisted because of the way her legs are bent with one on top of the other and her arms are out to the side. In the overhead shot of her, her positioning has changed, her body isn't twisted and her arms are more straight down her side.

Bishop73

The Big Bang - S5-E13

Continuity mistake: When little Amy looks out the window to see what makes the noise you can see the yard is out of her window (it's a little blurry) but when you look through the window properly it isn't there.

The Big Bang - S5-E13

Visible crew/equipment: When Amy is guesstimating Amelia's age, the camera pans to the right and into a crew member's arm.

The Snowmen - S7-E7

Continuity mistake: When the Doctor is explaining what the intelligence in the giant snow globe is, though enclosed, the amount of "snow" alternates from a fair mass to a few handfuls and back several times.

Movie Nut

Smith and Jones - S3-E1

Visible crew/equipment: As the black suited figure stops to look at Martha, the crew and equipment are reflected in the helmet and visor. (00:02:30)

World War Three (2) - S1-E5

Visible crew/equipment: After the acting Prime Minister gives orders to the sergeant and the lift doors close, the soldier turns around. As he issues orders, the boom mike is reflected on his goggles. (00:05:25)

Movie Nut

Rose - S1-E1

Revealing mistake: In the underground scene in the Nestene lair, the CGI used to create the Nestene is horrendous. And in a shot from behind the Doctor, the Nestene looks like a whole bunch of orange pixels.

Rose - S1-E1

Audio problem: At the department store, when the elevator doors close on the Auton, you can hear something like a grunt of pain. It sounds nothing like the Doctor and Rose, and Autons have no vocal cords because they're plastic, so where is it coming from?

A Town Called Mercy - S7-E4

Revealing mistake: When Jex's ship explodes, we see the smoke drifting over town. But it's really obvious that the smoke is coming from the next street, not miles away where Jex's ship is.

Doomsday (2) - S2-E16

Revealing mistake: In the Torchwood building, a large group of Cybermen start shooting at the Daleks and the Genesis Ark. The Daleks shoot several of them, and you can see a Cyberman that, thanks to hilarious CGI, just collapses like a sock without any physical regard that he is wearing tough metal leg armour, is floating a little off the ground, and falls way too fast than physical laws could allow. (00:25:15)

Silence in the Library (1) - S4-E8

Visible crew/equipment: While the Doctor tries to get into the data core (after Proper Dave tried) it cuts to the telephone still ringing, and when the young girl asks her dad why he's not answering the phone, just as he tells her that the phone is not ringing the boom mic dips into view at the top of the screen. (00:19:40)

Before the Flood - S9-E5

Other mistake: The Doctor says: "He's taking the suspended-animation chamber to the church." The subtitles say "[...] to the judge." (00:15:30)

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.
