Doctor Who

The End of Time: Part Two - S4-E18

Deliberate mistake: When the Doctor visits all his recent companions before he regenerates, he goes to a book signing of A Journal of Impossible Things, written by Joan Redfern's great-granddaughter. When she is signing the book for the Doctor, you can hear the scratching effect from the pen but you can see that the pen isn't touching the paper. (00:59:50)

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.

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.
