Human Nature (1) - S3-E8

New this week Continuity mistake: When the Doctor says, in response to Martha asking how the Family can follow them, "Stolen technology. They've got a Time Agent's vortex manipulator," in a close-up of his face he reaches with his left hand for a control on the console, but in a following shot of his hands, they're right next to each other.

Human Nature (1) - S3-E8

New this week Continuity mistake: When Martha and Jenny are washing the floor, just as Hutchinson and Baines come along and tell them off for laughing, one of the lace ribbons on Martha's cap moves between hanging in the back in shots facing her and draped over her shoulder in shots facing the schoolboys.

Human Nature (1) - S3-E8

New this week Continuity mistake: When Martha initially bursts into John Smith's study after hearing that he fell down the stairs, the door is mostly closed. When she runs back to the door to knock on it after Joan Redfern tells her off for bursting into a master's study unannounced, the door is open wider.

Human Nature (1) - S3-E8

New this week Continuity mistake: During Joan's encounter with the Family's spaceship, when it shines a beam of green light at her, she shields herself by raising her right arm. It changes position between a wide shot and a close-up.

Revealing mistake: In the close up shot of the boys' machine guns firing, in the background a white truck can be seen driving across the green countryside; not appropriate for the time period of the story.

Human Nature (1) - S3-E8

Plot hole: The Doctor leaves Martha a recording with instructions for her for when he's human. However, the flashbacks to the incident that led to him using the Chameleon Arch don't leave enough - or any - time for him to have made the recording.

Suggested correction: He would have been planning the change to human for a while now, not just made it up on the fly. So he could have made a recording before the opening scene.

The episode makes it pretty clear that he and Martha got taken by surprise by the Family's attack. The Doctor also explicitly says, when he gets out the Chameleon Arch headset, that he never thought he'd use it. The flashbacks consistently present his decision to become human as one made as an urgent, in the moment one.

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.
