The episode of Dr Who called hide: which is about a ghost hunt which turns out to be a time traveller lost in a dimension: has a massive mistake in it. In this episode Dr Who travells to varying different timed after having went to the place where the ghost hunt is and having seen something: this means that according to Dr Who past episodes he would be stuck there because. Why do they get writers that do not know the series.

Perhaps for the same reason that Dr Who gets fans who do not understand the term "suspension of disbelief".

This is a television show about a man who wafts around space and time in something which appears to be an old police telephone box, but is actually a living machine which travels in time and space with the same ease that some people take a ride to the nearest town in a car.

Do you REALLY want to talk plot holes, bearing these things in mind? Considering the scope and longevity of the show, its a wonder the poor bugger is not his own father, mother, grand mother, and, possibly, a victorian sideboard with very short, scrolled legs!

I've spotted a massive mistake in your OP , it's Doctor Who not Dr Who ... he isn't a Dr

The Doctor has on numerous occasions proven himself wrong......If you were as big of a fan as you proclaim, this would be a truth you understand.....The truth of reality in the Doctor's reality is what it happens to be at that moment in that version of the universe he is occupying.....Everything else is bunk.

What holds Doctor Who together is the fact that he cannot go off and come back with whatever he needs to sort the situation out: that he is stuck untill he solves it, or buggers off not to go back again.

Well how about that episode with THREE Doctors, Tennant, Smith and Hurt? The Doctor(s) used their combined experience to basically free themselves from a dungeon, even though they ended up being rescued instead. Honestly, again, it is FICTION, and one of the longest running sci fi shows ever created, so poking it for the occasional plot hole is like expecting perfect diction and good manners from a gangsta rap album!

He was in all the other episodes, but he was time travelling so fast, it turns out the Ghost episode was made before all the rest...

One thing that I've picked up over the years of Who is that the TARDIS takes him to exactly where he needs to be. So it makes sense that she takes him back to the house. It's where he needs to be. She even says it in "The Doctor's Wife" episode.




Idris/the TARDIS tells the Doctor that although she didn't always take him to where he wanted to go, she took him to where he needed to go, which explains most of the times that the TARDIS gets the flight wrong (e.g. landing on the Moon rather than Mars or when he was supposed to go to Rio and ended up in Wales)


ETA: Have watched since Tom Baker.

Regardless of the setting - fantasy or whatever, you can have whats called continuity errors. The subject of a movie (or tv series in this particular case) has nothing to do with the continuity error the OP is referring to.

Thinking like you, then a movie like Lord of Rings, or Star Wars or X-Men can do whatever they please, and have any continuity errors they want because your answer to them will be "Really, people fly and shoot fireballs out of their hands and you're worried about that?"

That said, even in a fantasy setting, you can go retard but you cant go full retard or else fans will notice that "oh come on this is just too much" - there is a level of believability even on a fantasy setting that you can't break.

Oh, I am familiar with continuity errors, but what I am saying, is that to single out just ONE of the many hilarious issues that Doctor Who has had with such things over the years, is not very sensible.

I would say, that for a show which has gone from serialised stories, to stand alone romps, to serialised stories,and back and forth and so on, for as long as Doctor Who, it has very few continuity errors, and there are bound to be SOME because of the nature of the show, specifically it's focus on time travel, and a man who finds it hard to stay dead, AND because in this show, the impossible is expected (Clara, who by definition is impossible by the rules laid down about such things, is a great character, but should be utterly impossible, no matter who her parents were, just for a contemporary example).

Damn Tru, you beat me to the punch!

I don't even need to say anything now.

Also, on an entirely unrelated note, I thought it was worth pointing out how awesome your GIF avatar is. I'm listening to my ipod, see... and I exploded with laughter when I saw your avatar, because it synced up perfectly with the main chorus in the song I was listening to. See for yourself;



I'm easily amused, sorry.

The three doctors are different versions and they are genetically different people and this makes it possible: as stated by the doctor in Doctor Who when he regerates it is still like dying and the person left isnt really him.

It isn't just a continuity error like a cup being placed in the wrong place, it is a major mistake.
