- In "Rise of the Cybermen", the Doctor states that Pete Tyler died when Rose Tyler was six months old, placing her birth somewhere around May 1987. This contradicts repeated references to her age being nineteen in March 2005 ("The Unquiet Dead" et al.), suggesting a birth year of 1986.
- According to the script for "Smith and Jones", Annalise was born in this year.
