Doctor Who

The Day of the Doctor - S7-E16

Continuity mistake: After the 10th Doctor marries Elizabeth, they kiss. While they are kissing, the collar on his jacket gets turned up, from her point of view. The camera then switches to look at her from over his shoulder, then back, and now the collar is straight. (00:49:40)

The Day of the Doctor - S7-E16

Continuity mistake: At the end, when the Tenth Doctor steps into his TARDIS, there are three sets of cups and saucers on the side of the bench farthest from the TARDIS, and Clara's set in the middle of the bench, but as the TARDIS fades away, there are two sets on each end of the bench. (01:14:10)

Army of Ghosts (1) - S2-E15

Continuity mistake: When the Doctor uses his sonic screwdriver on the glass partition in the Torchwood Institute, cracks radiate out in a star pattern, meaning the glass will break into pointed shards. When it does break, it breaks into cubes, like safety glass. (00:29:30)

The End of Time: Part Two - S4-E18

Revealing mistake: When the female Vinvocci is telling the male Vinvocci not to respond the Master's message, you can see a patch of non-green skin on the female Vinvocci's face. (00:27:50)

Casual Person

The End of Time: Part Two - S4-E18

Revealing mistake: Obvious dummy for the Doctor when he is being rolled down the stairs.

Casual Person

The Power of Three - S7-E5

Continuity mistake: When the Doctor is at the Tower of London with Amy and Kate, he claims he needs some air. When Amy follows him she follows him twice, in two different shots. The first time on 'ground view' walking and the second time on 'above view' running. (00:21:20)

The Doctor's Daughter - S4-E6

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Cobb is briefing his troops, the troops all have their guns, but in the other scene (after you see the Hath marching) the troops are receiving guns. (00:15:45)

The Family of Blood (2) - S3-E9

Revealing mistake: The pyrotechnic mortars used in the destruction of the Family's ship are visible in the shots leading up to their detonation. As the Family run from their ship through the field, the mortars are visible against the branches behind them. Shortly afterwards, they detonate, creating the illusion that the invisible craft has exploded.

Victory of the Daleks - S5-E3

Revealing mistake: When the TARDIS dematerialises and causes wind to blow against Churchill and Amy, their clothes are affected - but the cigar smoke in the air is unaffected, and actually drifts towards the vanishing TARDIS.

Voyage of the Damned - S3-E16

Audio problem: Near the beginning of the episode when we first see Bannakaffalata, he says "Christmas is funny", yet his lips don't match what he is saying. (00:01:45)

The Hungry Earth (1) - S5-E8

Continuity mistake: Throughout this episode, Amy's earrings seem to disappear and reappear.

LizzieWD

Amy's Choice - S5-E7

Continuity mistake: When Rory and Amy are running from the Eknodine, there is no mud on Rory's back, but he was thrown on his back into mud a minute before.

The Family of Blood (2) - S3-E9

Continuity mistake: When Timothy opens the watch into the girl's eyes, Jeremy Baines shouts "Time Lord", then a few seconds later; "What are we waiting for. Attack!" There is then a shot looking down on the scarecrows, Jeremy and Jenny. If you look closely at Jeremy Baines, it's a different actor playing him. (00:16:20)

Professor Lazarus

World War Three (2) - S1-E5

Character mistake: The Doctor comments that the destruction of Earth will cost 5 billion lives. At the time of the episode (2006, one year on from when Rose met the Doctor), the population of Earth was around 6.5 billion. (00:25:10)

Silence in the Library (1) - S4-E8

The Pyramid at the End of the World - S10-E8

Revealing mistake: The Monks show the Doctor and company simulations of a future, lifeless Earth - but some visible trees reveal the origins of the footage as being from the aftermath of natural disasters. (00:24:10)

Planet of the Ood - S4-E3

Continuity mistake: During Donna and the Doctor's conversation with an Ood at the reception who she approaches to ask if he's all right with being a servant, in shots facing the Ood, he's holding his translator ball higher than he is in wide shots and shots facing Donna. (00:11:50)

Evolution of the Daleks (2) - S3-E5

Other mistake: After the hybrid Dalek Sec explains the Daleks' plan to harness the power of a solar flare to the Doctor, when the Doctor asks how many minutes until the flare arrives, Sec says it's in 11 minutes. A fair amount of action and backstabbing later, when the Doctor and Laszlo arrive at the top floor of the Empire State Building and after the Daleks take back control of the elevator, the Doctor says that the solar flare arrives in 6 minutes. It is a considerable stretch for everything that happens between those two moments to take place in only five minutes.

The Shakespeare Code - S3-E2

Factual error: The establishing shot of Bedlam Hospital shows it with 18th-century neoclassical architecture, in an episode set in 1599, in the Elizabethan era. (00:23:20)

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.
