Doctor Who

Dalek - S1-E6

Revealing mistake: Dalek is escaping and enters the large room with the soldiers. He starts the sprinklers so he can kill them faster. When they show the dead soldiers they show some casings which were ejected from the soldiers' guns. The casings still have projectiles in them. If used, they would have been in magazines and would never fall out like they are shown.

The Big Bang - S5-E13

Revealing mistake: When The Doctor travels back in time after being shot by the Dalek, falls down the stairs and tells himself that he has 12 minutes to live we never see either of the 2 Doctor's faces onscreen at the same time, and if you look at the hair on The Doctor that's dying it is completely different to Matt Smith's. That's because it is Gordon Seed, Matt Smith's stunt double.

Rose - S1-E1

Revealing mistake: The Doctor and Rose locate the "metal" hatch that leads down into the "Plastic's Leader" blob. Watch carefully after the Doctor removes the "metal" hatch and moves it aside. The entire hatch "pops-up" a second later. This is because it is plastic and it was suctioned to the floor.

Aliens of London (1) - S1-E4

Revealing mistake: When the Alien spacecraft crashes into Big Ben, it is obvious that the shot has been reversed/flipped around. Look at the Roman numerals on Big Bens's clock face: They should read (clockwise from the top) XII, I, II, III, and so. Instead they read IIX, IX, X, etc.

Boom Town - S1-E11

Revealing mistake: The 'earthquake' that takes place in this episode results in CGI-created cracks in the pavement that are very unconvincing. They do not appear to displace anything and - in a related continuity error - the cracks disappear in shots taken from ground level (the cracks are only visible in high-level 'looking down' shots.

The Idiot's Lantern - S2-E10

Revealing mistake: During the scene in which The Doctor is climbing the transmitter, there is a shot in which he is viewed from above and is then struck by lightning. In this shot, The Doctor's foot disappears briefly as it leaves the green screen on the ground under the actor.

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.

The Runaway Bride - S3-E14

Revealing mistake: In the scene when Donna asks the woman if she could borrow £10 because it's Christmas, you can see that Donna is wearing sports shoes instead of her usual white wedding shoes.

The Pandorica Opens - S5-E12

Revealing mistake: In 'The Pandorica Opens', in the scenes where 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.

Revealing mistake: At the end when Sarah Jane is walking towards the Tardis and the Doctor opens the doors the inside of the Tardis is obviously a painting.

Doomsday (2) - S2-E16

Revealing mistake: When the Doctor calls Rose when she is with the Daleks, you can see on the screen of her phone that the call has been going on for at least 57 seconds, but she just answered the call.

The Family of Blood (2) - S3-E9

Revealing mistake: In the close up shot of the boy's machine guns firing, in the background a white truck can be seen driving across the green countryside; not appropriate for the time period of the story.

The End of Time: Part Two - S4-E18

Revealing mistake: Throughout certain points of the episode, you can see the Master's real brown hair through his blonde wig.

Casual Person

Show generally

Revealing mistake: Whenever you glimpse the inside of the TARDIS from outside, a frontal view reveals a picture of what's inside which has been placed at the back of the box. Sadly, it isn't on the sides. This means that, from the right angle, you can easily tell that it is just a box.

Daleks in Manhattan (1) - S3-E4

Revealing mistake: When the people in Hoovertown are meeting around the campfire, it's raining. However, everyone's clothes and hats are completely dry.

Captain Defenestrator

The Impossible Astronaut - S6-E2

Revealing mistake: When the Doctor is struck by the green light emitted from the astronaut, his right thigh momentarily disappears due to the animation. (This is even more visible when looking at the still of this shot on the Doctor Who website.)

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 appears looks like a whole bunch of orange pixels.

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.

Last Christmas - S9-E1

Revealing mistake: In the final scene, where the Doctor and Clara are entering the TARDIS, you can see that the inside of the TARDIS has not been animated and shows just the bare metal walls of the TARDIS prop.

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.
