Factual error: The Doctor meets Jamie at a time after the Battle of Culloden. But, in "The War Games", Jamie says he met him in 1745. Culloden took place in 1746.

Other mistake: In every William Hartnell title scene there is a point where it tells you that you are watching "DOCTOR OHO". It lasts for three seconds and is probably the result of a lazy FX team as the left side is a mirror image of the right.

The Doctor: This is a situation that requires tact and finesse. Fortunately, I am blessed with both.

Planet of Giants - S2-E1

Trivia: This Doctor Who story was originally scripted and produced as a four-episode story, but, just two weeks before transmission, upon viewing the story, co-creators Sydney Newman and Donald Wilson felt that the final two episodes (Episode 3, 'Crisis'; and Episode 4, 'The Urge to Live') should be combined into a single episode. The new 'condensed' episode incorporated the opening titles of 'Crisis' with the closing credits of 'The Urge to Live'.

Question: In which season and episode is Gallifrey destroyed, or is it just a shocking new plot development for the new series?

Answer: It was never destroyed on-screen; it was intact at the end of the TV movie, and destroyed by the start of the 2005 series. It was destroyed in the novel "The Ancestor Cell," but in a completely different manner to what happened in the series.
