The Parting of the Ways (2) - S1-E13

New this month Plot hole: The extrapolated shield covers the TARDIS and about 3 metres in front of it (it isn't even centred on the TARDIS), thus stopping Dalek lasers. The Doctor and co immediately walk out of this range and out of the cover it provides and spend the next few minutes talking outside this shield. Crazy and trigger-happy Daleks don't resume shooting or attempt to shoot at any point they are outside this shield, even the emperor doesn't take a shot. Side note: This shield can be walked though! Why didn't the Daleks move a metre forwards and resume firing. Dalek are known for their hyper-intelligence and a need to exterminate anything different, these Dalek seem more interested in being a bullies or parrots.

New Earth - S2-E4

Plot hole: Those people created for medical experiments cannot run. In fact they can barely walk, so how come they can climb nearly as fast as Rose? What's more, when you see them climbing, they seem to have little ability to coordinate hand over hand. Even with the delay brought on by the cat-woman-thing, they should not have been able to keep up with her.

The Empty Child (1) - S1-E9

Plot hole: Nancy seems to have the unique ability to whistle with her fingers in her mouth - even though she's wearing gloves.

Father's Day - S1-E8

Plot hole: In "Aliens of London" it is established on a 'missing person' poster that Rose Tyler is approximately 19 years of age in March 2005 (The poster says 'missing since 6 March 2005'). This means that she must have been born prior to March 1986. However, in 'Father's Day', which is dated 7 November 1987, Rose is still a baby in her mother's arms - but she should be a toddler aged approx two.

Journey's End (2) - S4-E13

Plot hole: Near the end of the episode, the part-human Doctor is said to have all of the memories of the original Doctor. If this is true, then the part-human Doctor should remember the time the original Doctor spent with Rose, so shouldn't commit genocide or need Rose to help him to not be a man of killing.

The Christmas Invasion - S2-E2

Plot hole: The Sycorax begin speaking English for all of the humans because the TARDIS is suddenly activated when the Doctor wakes up. However, it is stated elsewhere in the series that the TARDIS only translates for those who have been in the TARDIS, which Harriet and her translator haven't.

Journey's End (2) - S4-E13

Plot hole: Davros said that the reality bomb would destroy all parallel universes. He fails in the Doctor's universe, but the Doctor said in an earlier episode that every decision creates a new parallel universe, like if Donna had walked out of the TARDIS with Jack, Rose, and the Doctor. She wouldn't have imbued herself with Time Lordness, so Davros would have succeeded. This means that all the universes, including the Doctor's one, should have been destroyed, because if the Reality bomb only succeeds in one universe, it would destroy all the others as well.

Blink - S3-E10

Plot hole: The Weeping Angels move across a busy street with dozens of people around looking, yet later on they can't get across a couple of meters in two minutes with only Larry and Sally looking.

The Stolen Earth (1) - S4-E12

Plot hole: When Torchwood is transmitting a signal to the Doctor, there is an overhead shot of Cardiff in which several shoppers are idly walking through apparently deserted streets.

Josman

Turn Left - S4-E11

Plot hole: Since in this episode the Doctor is assumed to have died some time after the Runaway Bride but not before Voyage of the Damned, he was not able to prevent the spaceship Titanic from crashing in London. It is later shown that the south east was obliterated from the explosion. This falls far short of what the Doctor mentioned in Voyage of the Damned wherein he frantically repeated that if the Titanic crashed, the core would annihilate 6 billion people on the planet (that's the entire human race at the time of the show's airing).

Add time

Turn Left - S4-E11

Plot hole: In the episode, because the Doctor was not around as he was killed in the alternate reality, all the present day invasions that he stopped in the normal reality happened. However, since his death was before many invasions in later seasons in the normal reality that were chronologically before his death (for example, The Carrionite invasion in 1599) the Earth should be already destroyed. Therefore, he couldn't die on Earth, so it would be a paradox that would erase his timeline.

Suggested correction: Except none of this happened. All of this is an illusion brought on by the bug on her back. She just woke up.

MasterOfAll

Doomsday (2) - S2-E16

Plot hole: The Daleks "plunge" Raj to get information about the Cybermen. Raj was locked away in the sphere chamber when the Cybermen revealed themselves as the ghosts, so he shouldn't have known, therefore the Daleks shouldn't know.

Suggested correction: Raj's earpiece has communication technology. Someone in the building may have called him and told him about the situation, but it happened off camera.

Daleks in Manhattan (1) - S3-E4

Plot hole: The guy working for the Daleks offers the homeless men in Hooverville a dollar a day to go into the sewer because the Daleks need more people. Most of the people refused and one called it slave wages. If they were not getting paid until they came back, and since the Daleks were planning on experimenting on them, the people weren't going to come back; why not offer them a large amount of money big enough to entice them but small enough not to be suspicious?

Planet of the Dead - S4-E15

Plot hole: The intro scene shows the thief hanging from the skylight trying to steal a gem. She escapes where she came in and yet the next scene shows her walking inside the museum. This scene doesn't make sense because she already had an effortless exit on the rooftop.

The Satan Pit (2) - S2-E12

Plot hole: At the end, the Doctor bumped up against the TARDIS in the bottom of the pit. There was no evidence that it could have fallen that far, especially through the sealed entrance that didn't open until the Doctor and the lady were there.

Add time

The End of the World - S1-E2

Plot hole: The Doctor and Jabe make all this fuss about the lever that slows down the fans, when you can see that the space under the fans is big enough to crawl through. Jabe didn't have to die, as the Doctor could have crawled over there in like 20 seconds.

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.
