Doctor Who

The Girl in the Fireplace - S2-E7

New this month Continuity mistake: For most of the scene where he's probing Reinette's mind to find out what the clockwork droids want with her, placing his hands on her temples, the Doctor's left hand is positioned with two fingers on either side of her ear. When he realises that she's seeing some of his memories, his ring finger has jumped to being in front of his ear, without him taking his hands from her head.

The Girl in the Fireplace - S2-E7

Factual error: Madame de Pompadour calls herself "Reinette" in 1727, whereas in actual fact, this was a nickname meaning "Little Queen" which was not given to her until 1730.

Continuity mistake: When the Doctor is trying to fix the connection from the past to the future through the fireplace, the background of the spaceship can be seen behind the flames whilst there is no connection.

The Girl in the Fireplace - S2-E7

Continuity mistake: When Madame de Pompadour is walking in the gardens with her friend, the Doctor ducks down behind a pillar so he will not be seen. He puts his hands on the pillar but in the next shot they are gone, then they are back again.

New this month Suggested correction: Having just watched that scene, the Doctor's hands don't disappear when he's ducking behind the pillar. There are no continuity errors in the placement of his hands in the scene at all.

The Girl in the Fireplace - S2-E7

Continuity mistake: When Rose is giving the 5 year warning to Reinette, she's got a noticeable spot on her chin. When Reinette goes behind the tapestry and sees the ship, Rose's spot has suddenly vanished.

Quotes

Doctor: So, that's the trap. Or the test or the final judgment, I don't know. But if I kill you, I kill her. Except that implies, in this big grand scheme of Gods and Devils, that she's just a victim. But I've seen a lot of this universe. I've seen fake gods and bad gods and demi-gods and would-be gods - out of all that - out of that whole pantheon - if I believe in one thing... Just one thing... I believe in her.

Trivia

"Torchwood" is an anagram for Doctor Who. Russell T Davies came up with it during the filming of Series 1 to label the tapes in order to prevent theft and potential leakage, and decided to use the name in the show proper.
