1 revealing mistake in season 1 - chronological order

Ghost Machine - S1-E3

Revealing mistake: From the first "front on" view of Gwen and Owen in the arcade as they are running to catch the alien device, you can see behind Gwen to the right that Owen is being played by a stunt double.

Captain Jack Harkness - S1-E12

Factual error: When Gwen finds Toshiko's hidden message from 1941, she realizes that it was written in blood, and her flashlight reveals the bright red letters on the now-yellowed piece of paper. But after 60+ years, the iron in the blood would oxidize. The writing on the note should be rust-brown, not red. (00:33:40)

Trivia: The hand preserved in a glass jar in the Torchwood HQ is the severed hand of Doctor Who which he lost in a duel during the Christmas special. The hand features quite prominently in episode 1 but can also be seen in the background in most episodes.

Question: In "Greek Bearing Gifts" apparently the doctors sonic screwdriver is on Tosh's desk. Could someone tell me at what time you can see it please?

Answer: Several times during the episode, most notably at the beginning when the old grave is discovered, Tosh holds a devise that looks a great deal like the Sonic Screwdriver that she uses to determine the age of the skeleton. However, a search of Google images shows that it is not the same thing.
