The Family of Blood (2) - S3-E9

Continuity mistake: When the Doctor comes back to the Cartwright house after imprisoning the Family, Joan walks over to the window and looks out, clasping her hands in front of her. In the next shot, when she asks the Doctor if it's done, her hands are suddenly by her sides, and she is shown clasping them again.

The Family of Blood (2) - S3-E9

Continuity mistake: When Martha finishes listing off the bones of the hand to Joan, in order to prove that she's a medical student from the future, in a shot facing Joan, Martha's thumb is extended. In the next shot, facing Martha, her thumb is suddenly folded back, as if she was using her hand to display the number 4.


The Family of Blood (2) - S3-E9

Continuity mistake: When Sister of Mine enters the school's courtyard after the battle with the scarecrows, her right hand is holding her balloon at the bottom, with the bottom of the string wrapped around her left hand. In the next shot, facing her, her right hand is at her side, with the balloon floating above her left hand. The balloon proceeds to jump between positions until Sister of Mine murders the headmaster.


The Family of Blood (2) - S3-E9

Continuity mistake: When Timothy opens the watch into the girl's eyes, Jeremy Baines shouts "Time Lord", then a few seconds later; "What are we waiting for. Attack!" There is then a shot looking down on the scarecrows, Jeremy and Jenny. If you look closely at Jeremy Baines, it's a different actor playing him.

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.



As the camera zooms out when Rose is captured and Cassandra is about to "go" into Rose, the psychograft disappears, but in the next shot of Rose it appears again.



"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.
