Doctor Who

The Eleventh Hour - S5-E1

Other mistake: When the Doctor tells the Atraxi "Oh, you're not the first lot to have come here, there have been so many," one of the monsters shown from their scan of Earth is a group of Ood. Even if in one of their uprisings they attacked the Earth, it would have been in the far future. The Doctor has had no encounters with them on Earth, and he knows them to be peaceful, so why would they be amongst the aliens who have threatened the planet? The only Ood who has been to Earth at this point is Ood Sigma, and he didn't come to attack. In addition, a group of Hath is also shown. These aliens have never been seen on Earth at all.

The Big Bang - S5-E13

Revealing mistake: When the Doctor travels back in time after being shot by the stone Dalek, falls down the stairs and tells himself that he has 12 minutes to live we never see either of the 2 Doctors' 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.

The Pandorica Opens - S5-E12

Revealing mistake: When 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.

The Eleventh Hour - S5-E1

Factual error: When the Doctor spots Rory taking a photo of Prisoner Zero, we're shown a brief close-up of Rory's hospital identity badge. The date of issue is given as "30/11/1990". The main body of the episode is set in 2008, two years before Rory and Amy's wedding in 2010. It's further established in the episode that Rory and Amy played together as children after her first meeting with the Doctor in 1996, with Rory observing that Amy made him dress up as the Raggedy Doctor. Rory could not possibly have worked for the hospital for eighteen years at the time of the episode.

Suggested correction: Continue watching the show as this is a clue and not a mistake. In later episodes Rory becomes the Last Centurion who watches over Amy for over 1,800 years while she is in the Pandorica. So while Rory was born in 1989, because of time travel and events that occurred to him, he's lived long enough to work at the hospital since 1990.

At that stage, Rory had not time-traveled at all. If he had been working at the hospital since 1990, he would have been a baby. And it was shown in "The Big Bang" that he works as a guard in the Museum where the Pandorica is kept in the alternate timeline, not at the hospital.

Vincent and the Doctor - S5-E10

Factual error: Amy inspires Vincent to paint sunflowers for his iconic Sunflowers painting. The episode takes place in 1890, even though Van Gogh completed Sunflowers two years earlier in 1888.

Vincent and the Doctor - S5-E10

Factual error: By the time the Doctor and Amy meet him, Vincent van Gogh had already mutilated his ear. He should be missing part of his left earlobe.

Cold Blood (2) - S5-E9

Continuity mistake: When the Doctor stands between Restac and his fleeing companions, using his sonic screwdriver to disable the Silurians' weapons, as the camera angle changes, the Doctor's grip on the screwdriver switches back and forth between pointing it at the lizards and holding it straight up and down, รก la the Neuralizer from Men in Black.

The Time of Angels (1) - S5-E4

Continuity mistake: When River shows Amy and the Doctor the video of the Angel, next to the Doctor on the ceiling is a bar with two cloth handles, one on each end. The Doctor accidentally rips off the handle closest to him and the viewscreen. A minute later when Amy is alone and we are looking at the Angel video, this handle is back up. It's gone again in subsequent shots.

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.

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.
