Doctor Who (2005)

The Poison Sky (2) - S4-E5

New this week Factual error: Colonel Mace says the Sontaran ship is orbiting 5,000 miles (8,050 km) above the Earth. However, in shots of and from the ship in both this episode and "The Sontaran Stratagem", the Earth appears far too small for the ship to be that close, with the ship's true distance appearing to be well over double that.

Kerblam! - S11-E8

New this week Factual error: Kandoka labour laws require companies like Kerblam! to have a minimum of 10% organic staff. The villain claims that, as a result, only 10% of humans are employed, at all. These are two completely different quantities: if 10% of the cars in one parking lot are blue, this doesn't indicate that 10% of all cars are painted blue, but that's effectively what the episode thinks. The fact that no-one else, including the Doctor, calls him on this further magnifies the mathematical error.

New this month Continuity mistake: When Rose is telling Auton Mickey that she thinks they should stay away from the Doctor because he's dangerous, a lock of her hair in front of her face tucks itself behind her ear when the shot changes to a close-up. (00:24:42)

Revealing mistake: When the Doctor notices the unnatural triangular shadow signalling the presence of the Vashta Nerada and points it out to Donna, the shadow appears over Donna when she's standing in front of it, showing that it's a special effect added to the shot afterwards. (00:11:10)
