Doctor Who

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.

The Stolen Earth (1) - S4-E12

Continuity mistake: Before Martha uses Project Indigo she doesn't have an ear piece. A shot later when she says, "Bye, Jack", she does (and then takes it out).

The Stolen Earth (1) - S4-E12

Audio problem: When Martha is talking to everyone on her laptop, we can see her mouth moving from the front view. Yet when the camera cuts behind her, she's still talking but we don't see her mouth move.

Journey's End (2) - S4-E13

Continuity mistake: When the Daleks capture the TARDIS in the chronon loop, the TARDIS is the right way up. But when it is being pulled towards the Crucible, it is upside down.

The Poison Sky (2) - S4-E5

Visible crew/equipment: During the warehouse battle, around when the Doctor tells Donna, "Hold on, I'm coming", the film crew can be seen reflected in a door at the right of screen.

The End of Time: Part Two - S4-E18

Deliberate mistake: When the Doctor visits all his recent companions before he dies, he goes to a book signing of "The Journal of Impossible Things" written by Joan Redfern's great grandchild. When she is signing the book for the Doctor, you can hear the scratching effect from the pen but you can clearly see that the pen isn't touching the paper.

Planet of the Ood - S4-E3

Visible crew/equipment: Soon after the Doctor and Donna are blasted back there is fake snow on the camera, indicating there's a camera there.

The Poison Sky (2) - S4-E5

Continuity mistake: When Colonel Mace confronts Commander Skorr, he raises his gun twice; once in one shot, and immediately after in the other.

The Next Doctor - S4-E14

Other mistake: When Miss Hartigan is testing the earpod control, the men start off facing her. She instructs them to turn to the right. They turn 90 degrees clockwise. She then tells them to turn to the left. They turn 180 degrees anticlockwise. However, they should have only turned 90 degrees anticlockwise, and end up facing her again. What they actually do is turn on the spot, as opposed to turning left. It takes a further instruction from Miss Hartigan for them to face her again.

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 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

The Next Doctor - S4-E14

Continuity mistake: When The Doctor grabs the rope there are several metres more behind him. But, as he's hoisted off the ground, he is almost at the end.

Josman

Planet of the Dead - S4-E15

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the episode, the police are chasing the bus and they give the numberplate as starting with 'Whiskey zero four seven' (Or something similar). That is W047, yet later on when the flying bus comes through the rift in time/space, the numberplate is completely different. This is because whilst filming in Dubai, the original bus broke down and had to be replaced.

Partners in Crime - S4-E1

Continuity mistake: At the end of the episode, Donna piles suitcases in the Doctor's arms in preparation to leave with him in the TARDIS, and places a striped hat box on top. The bags stay that way for a while as the camera cuts back and forth between them, and you can see the stack of luggage as the camera films the Doctor from behind. Then, as soon as the camera cuts back to the Doctor's face when Donna leaves to give her mother the car keys, suddenly he has one bag under his arm and another in his hand, and the rest of the bags are on the ground with the hat box stacked neatly on top.

The Unicorn and the Wasp - S4-E7

Factual error: The hotel in Harrogate was not called the Harrogate Hotel as shown in the episode; it was called the Swan Hydropathic Hotel.

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.

Forest of the Dead (2) - S4-E9

Visible crew/equipment: When River punches the Doctor, laying him out, just as he drops to the floor we can see the actor's green tape mark at River's feet.

Super Grover

Silence in the Library (1) - S4-E8

Visible crew/equipment: While the Doctor tries to get into the data core (after Proper Dave tried) it cuts to the telephone still ringing, and when the young girl asks her dad why he's not answering the phone, just as he tells her that the phone is not ringing the boom mic dips into view at the top of the screen.

Super Grover

The Sontaran Stratagem (1) - S4-E4

Visible crew/equipment: As the Doctor tries to get Gramps out of the car, the camera goes to follow his movement, there is a reflection of the lighting rig and camera on the car.

Movie Nut

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.

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.
