Twice Upon a Time - S11-E1

Trivia: The Testimony are revealed to be connected to the University of New Earth, based on the planet of the same name seen in "New Earth" and "Gridlock." It's probable that Professor Clay, the Testimony's leader, died in the Bliss Plague from the latter episode.

Twice Upon a Time - S11-E1

Trivia: Clara's cameo was originally intended to be slightly longer, with her appearing on screen with the Doctor, Bill and Nardole. The three Companions were going to ask the Doctor which one of them was his favourite, and he was going to evade the question. Clara's brief, vision-like appearance came about because Jenna Coleman was too busy working on Victoria to shoot that version of the scene. She shot the scene in an office in London, with the background CGI-ed in.

Twice Upon a Time - S11-E1

Trivia: The planet where the Doctor goes to see Rusty is Villengard, which was famously mentioned in "The Doctor Dances" as where Jack got his sonic blaster from a factory that the Ninth Doctor later blew up and arranged to replace with a banana grove.

The Impossible Planet (1) - S2-E11

Factual error: The Doctor (and the staff on the station) refer to the idea of a planet being in orbit around a black hole as 'impossible'. It is not. Gravity (and physics in general) works perfectly well outside of the event horizon. For all practical purposes - regarding orbiting around it - the black hole might as well be any other object, as long as it has an equal mass. (00:07:15 - 00:08:30)

Season 1 generally

Question: 1. Why was Rose not allowed to touch her past self without creating a paradox and causing those creatures to appear and eat everyone, but Amy was allowed to touch her younger self without any repercussions? 2. Why was Rose able to have the time vortex in her head for a few minutes and it only knocked her unconscious whereas the Doctor had it inside him for about 30 seconds and it basically killed him and caused his regeneration?


Chosen answer: 1) When Stephen Moffat took over he ignored a lot of what had been developed before (there is not in-universe answer). 2) It would have killed Rose, so the Doctor absorbed the energy. His body regenerated before the energy could do a significant amount of damage that would prevent regeneration.
