Voyage of the Damned - S3-E16

Continuity mistake: When Mr. Copper is talking about how space-lane fraud could get him ten years in jail, the cut on his forehead changes sides, as does the panel behind him, revealing the shot to be flipped. (00:36:25)

Voyage of the Damned - S3-E16

Continuity mistake: When Astrid tells Mr. Copper that she's going down to Deck 31 to find the Doctor, she's using her left hand to fit a teleport bracelet on her right wrist. In a shot facing Mr. Copper immediately after as he wishes her good luck, her left arm is suddenly by her side. (00:50:55)

Voyage of the Damned - S3-E16

Continuity mistake: When the Doctor interrupts Mr. Copper's incredibly inaccurate description of Earth society to ask him where he got his information from, in a shot facing Mr. Copper, the Doctor's raised hand has only one finger extended. In the next shot, facing the Doctor, he has two fingers extended, with the other two only loosely curled. Shortly after this, the Doctor scratches his temple with that same hand, only for it to be absent in the next shot facing Mr. Copper. (00:11:40)

Voyage of the Damned - S3-E16

Continuity mistake: After Rickston asks the Doctor how "Mr. and Mrs. Fatso" (Morvin and Foon) are going to get through a narrow gap, when the Doctor responds that they're going to make the gap bigger, he passes Rickston a piece of metal. The steel bar's appearance changes between shots. (00:27:45)

Voyage of the Damned - S3-E16

Continuity mistake: After Morvin falls to his death in the engine, when Foon tearfully demands to the Doctor that he bring him back, and he tells her he can't, Foon's hand is gripping the railing in one shot with the two of them, but missing in a shot facing the Doctor as he says, "I know. I'm sorry." (00:37:45)

The Satan Pit (2) - S2-E12

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.

Season 2 generally

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.
