** While [[Series/DoctorWho Nurse Rory's]] absence can be explained away by the fact he's never actually met Jack, where the hell are Martha and Mickey? You remember Martha, Torhwood medical contact that surely would have been mentioned in that file the CIA had somewhere and as a ''doctor'' would have been pretty involved with the Miracle anyways. They don't even bother to HandWave her absence like they did in COE.

* RequiredSecondaryPowers: Horrifically averted. The consequences of immortality without any sort of healing factor are made gruesomely clear early on. It's also established that people continue to age as normal. Even if you manage to avoid all injury and disease for the rest of your life, would it still be worth living by the time you're 1000 years old and considerably more frail than the oldest living human has ever been?

** Stuart Owens, a Phicorp bigwig, is notable for being rather helpful and non-antagonistic despite qualifying for this. As he puts it, "I'm not a bad man. I'm not a good man, either. I'm a... ''[[TrueNeutral middle]]'' [[TitleDrop man.]]"

* OnlyOnePlausibleSuspect: Towards the tail end of the series we're told there's another evil [[TheMole Mole]] in the CIA other than the ObviouslyEvil FatBastard that was outed earlier. There are three CIA operatives that aren't part of the main cast. One is DaChief and working pretty diligently with Torchwood and wants the case solved and the mole outed. The second is developing the software to find the mole. That leaves the third, who was [[spoiler:featured prominently in the first episode, who we had just been reminded exists the episode prior, and who just had her wardrobe change up to [[EvilIsSexy low cut cleavage showing dresses]]]]. To be fair though, the audience is let in on it before the heroes, who were busy juggling the IdiotBall the entire season.

** The characters are very clear that he's only temporarily out on a legal technicality that people are already working to resolve, something to do with "acts of God" in the state's constitution. Whether such technicality would really happen is another issue. That said, they wouldn't just release him-he would appeal, and wait in prison until the courts decided on his case, which takes a while. [[ObstructiveBureaucracy In his case, they would likely stretch it out deliberately too just to prevent this]].

* ZombiePukeAttack: The 'zombie' people were the ill undead thus, many would throw up regularly for effect in hospital scenes.

** He wasn't thrown into the Blessing; he was thrown over a rail straight ''down'' via normal gravity.(Fridge Logic says the Blessing should have been down as well, seeing as it goes through the Earth, but hey).

** In the first episode, Gwen's father suffers two heart attacks, but thanks to the Miracle he survives long enough for his heart to be restarted, albeit still left in a very weak state. Halfway through, Gwen tries to save him from the camp... [[spoiler:which causes him to suffer a third, much more severe heart attack and leaves him beyond any slim hope of recovery, eventually resulting in his death when the Miracle ceases]].

* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Ellis Hartley Monroe, with her Tea Party leanings and almost entirely red wardrobe, is likely intended as a stab at Sarah Palin.
