You are exploring the discontinuity index, a place where any details or rumours about unreleased stories are forbidden.
Please discuss only those whole stories which have already been released, and obey our spoiler policy.

This page is for discussing the ways in which To the Last Man doesn't fit well with other DWU narratives. You can also talk about the plot holes that render its own, internal narrative confusing.

Remember, this is a forum, so civil discussion is encouraged. However, please do not sign your posts. Also, keep all posts about the same continuity error under the same bullet point. You can add a new point by typing:

* This is point one.
::This is a counter-argument to point one.
:::This is a counter-argument to the counter-argument above
* This is point two.
::Explanation of point two.
::Further discussion and query of point two.

... and so on. 
  • This episode shows a calendar dated Friday 20th (June 2008, Feb 2009 or March 2009). However, a poster in a hospital in Last of the Time Lords showed it was October, and Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang seems to be only hours after that.
The October Date is more likely to be a continuity error.
  • Gwen witnesses Tommy's annual revival procedure for the first time, suggesting her adventures so far with Torchwood have taken place over less than a year, however this is not consistent with some of the dates provided for Season 1 episodes which suggest she was with Torchwood during the previous defrosting.
Jack may have chosen to not reveal this aspect of Torchwood to her at that time; or, it could simply have happened on her day off. Alternatively, as Owen states that Tommy is taken out of cryo every year or so, it's possible his scheduled unfreezing was delayed by events.
Can't say I agree with you there. In TW: Meat Rhys says "That's the first time you've told me the truth in what, a year?" suggesting that Gwen's work with torchwood has taken place in less than a year.
In response to both the above queries we do not have to presume that Torchwood stories are always presented to us in any chronological order. Although we can expect that they usually are.
  • Tommy states that he is from Blackley in Lancashire but pronounces it "Black-lee". The correct pronunciation is more like "Blake-lee" (Wikipedia entry)
It may be how he pronounces it - pronunciations do change.
  • Jack explains that time occurs in a linear fashion and bad things happen if it doesn't. The Doctor has contrarily stated that from a non-subjective point of view, time is not linear and "more like a big ball of wibbly, wobbly, timey-whimey stuff Blink .
