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.

The Long Game - S1-E7

Continuity mistake: After the Doctor gives Rose instructions, he crosses his arms and leans against the TARDIS. In the close up, he does it again. (00:00:25)

Movie Nut

Rose - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: The Doctor pulls the arm off Rose, deactivates it, and the fourth and fifth fingers are the last to stop moving. When the angle changes, the first two fingers are the last to stop.

Continuity mistake: When Suki goes to leave the lift on floor 500, her arms are by her sides, then suddenly both hands are gripping the strap on her bag. (00:14:00)

Movie Nut

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)

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?

Rose - S1-E1

Revealing mistake: Most of the time, the eyes of the dummies are molded and opaque. But in the mall, there are small holes in the eyes.

Movie Nut

Rose - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: The Auton in the red shirt is seen starting to come down the escalator, then at a quarter of the way down, then at the top again, just starting down.

Other mistake: When Mickey is trying to pull away from the trash bin, you can see his shadow on the front of his car, but the sun is shining from behind him and the car.

Movie Nut

The Satan Pit (2) - S2-E12

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.

Season 2 generally

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.
