Death in Heaven - S8-E12

The Impossible Astronaut - S6-E2

Visible crew/equipment: The astronaut coming out of the lake is seen twice in series 6: In episode 1, "The Impossible Astronaut", and in episode 13, "The Wedding of River Song." In "The Wedding of River Song", when the helmet of the suit is lifted the astronaut is revealed to be River Song. However, in "The Impossible Astronaut", when the helmet was lifted, a man's beard can be seen. Since it is a man in the suit, then it was just a double seen in "The Impossible Astronaut."

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.
