Doctor Who

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

The Rings of Akhaten - S7-E9

Revealing mistake: While the Doctor and Clara visit the market in Akhaten, the rubber mask of one of the aliens they encounter is revealed, as the eyes of the actor wearing it are very much visible.

Under the Lake - S9-E4

Revealing mistake: In several episodes of season 9, starting at "Under the Lake" and continuing through "Before the Flood", "The Girl who Died" and "Sleep No More", the same white hallway model is used. For the first two episodes, this makes sense, since they play in the same location. However, the same hallway is used in "The Girl who Died", when the men from Ashildr's village get blasted to death, and again in several scenes in "Sleep No More" when the characters run through the hallways. Also, it seems the control room from the underwater research center, where the characters hide from the ghosts in "Under the Lake" and "Before the Flood", is reused as the white room in "Hell Bent" when the Doctor pulls Clara out of her timeline, though in "Hell Bent" the room is nearly empty and the room in "Under the Lake" and "Before the Flood" is full of equipment.

The Runaway Bride - S3-E14

Revealing mistake: When the Doctor goes to toss the trio of Christmas balls up, the two times after the first toss are re-used shots of the first toss. His movements of his right arm to bring up the controller are too exact to be coincidence.

The Sontaran Stratagem (1) - S4-E4

Revealing mistake: In the beginning, the ATMOS system takes the car to the Thames, then runs it into the river. At first, the car runs forward normally. After the angle change, there's a huge white cloud of mist behind the car that dissipates quickly, meaning an air cannon of a sort was used to propel the car into the river.

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.

Night Terrors - S6-E10

Revealing mistake: Series 6, episode 9, "Night Terrors". In the scene where the man wakes up on his floor, because his pet dog is licking his hand, we see a few pieces of dog food fall from his fingers - should have been a re-shoot, but all credit to the actor, he knows it has happened and is quick to hide them again.

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.
