Doctor Who

The Shakespeare Code - S3-E2

New this month Continuity mistake: When the Doctor first enters Shakespeare's room at the inn, the collar of his coat is askew. The scene cuts to Shakespeare, and when it cuts back to the Doctor his collar is now flat, without him having moved his hands from his pockets.

The Shakespeare Code - S3-E2

New this month Continuity mistake: When Lilith has Shakespeare under her spell and is having him write an alternate ending to his play, there is one shot of his face where his quill can be seen in the corner, perfectly still, even though the next shot shows that he's writing.

The Shakespeare Code - S3-E2

New this month Continuity mistake: When the Doctor, Martha and Shakespeare are in the Globe and they talk about the theatre's architecture, there is a wooden staircase in front of the stage, which Martha and Shakespeare use to descend from the stage when the three leave. Shortly after, at the beginning of the scene where the two actors from Shakespeare's company accidentally summon a Carrionite while practicing their lines, the staircase is gone.

Smith and Jones - S3-E1

New this month Continuity mistake: When Martha is talking to the Doctor, who is posing as a patient, about her encounter with him in the street earlier, which he doesn't remember, she takes her stethoscope off her neck. The camera cuts to the Doctor, then back to her, and she's taking it off again.

Smith and Jones - S3-E1

New this month Continuity mistake: When the Doctor is looking out the window while asking Martha if there's a balcony on the floor of the hospital they're on, in close-ups of him only his right hand is visible, resting on the sill between two windowpanes, and his left arm is by his side. In a wide shot from outside looking in, his left arm is stretched out with his left hand gripping the divider between two windowpanes, in a spot where it should have been visible in the preceding shot.

Smith and Jones - S3-E1

New this month Continuity mistake: When the Doctor and Martha open the doors to the balcony, in a shot facing them, Martha lets go of the handle of her door and it swings completely open. In the next shot, from behind, Martha is still holding the doorknob.

Smith and Jones - S3-E1

New this month Continuity mistake: When the Doctor is telling Martha that he was just wandering and not looking for trouble, in the wide shot, he's rubbing his chin. In the close-up immediately afterward, his hand has jumped to his hair.

Smith and Jones - S3-E1

New this month Visible crew/equipment: When the Doctor is being held by the slab in the MRI room, there are some shots where what appears to be a lighting screen is reflected in its helmet.

Smith and Jones - S3-E1

New this month Continuity mistake: When Martha and the Doctor are talking in the alley at the end, he's leaning on the TARDIS. His exact position keeps changing between shots.

The Runaway Bride - S3-E14

New this month Continuity mistake: When the Doctor picks up a mug and a pencil to use as props to explain to Donna how she was pulled into the TARDIS, he is initially holding the pencil by the blunt end. The scene cuts to a shot of his face, and suddenly he's holding it by the sharpened end.

The Runaway Bride - S3-E14

New this month Factual error: During the rooftop scene, Donna checks her watch and says that it's half past three, or 3:30 PM. In London on December 24, that's roughly 45 minutes before sunset. However, not only is the angle of sunlight during this scene much higher than it should be for the date and time, the Sun proceeds to remain up for some time longer, including during the wedding reception and when the Doctor discovers the tunnel underneath H.C. Clements leads to below the Thames Barrier, even though it really ought to have set by then.

The Runaway Bride - S3-E14

New this month Continuity mistake: When the Doctor is giving the Racnoss Empress an ultimatum, the position of his hands on the railing in front of him changes between shots.

Doomsday (2) - S2-E16

New this month Continuity mistake: When Rose is hanging onto the lever and beginning to lose her grip, in close-ups of her face her body is facing the other wall of the room, perpendicular to the floor. In shots showing her and her hands on the lever, her body and head are facing the floor.

Doomsday (2) - S2-E16

New this month Audio problem: Mickey asks Rose why the Daleks are keeping them alive. When she responds, "They might need me," her mouth movements are not in sync with the words.

xx:xx:xx

Doomsday (2) - S2-E16

New this month Continuity mistake: After Pete tells the Doctor that Mickey went ahead because he wanted to find Rose, the Doctor asks him if he knows that Rose is his daughter from a parallel universe. The problem is that in Pete's last scene in "The Age of Steel", the Doctor saw Rose call Pete "Dad", leading to Pete departing in a hurry.

Army of Ghosts (1) - S2-E15

New this month Continuity mistake: When Jackie enters the TARDIS and closes the door, it shuts completely - despite the fact that there's a cable running out the door to the device the Doctor set up to catch one of the ghosts.

Army of Ghosts (1) - S2-E15

New this month Continuity mistake: When Yvonne leads the Torchwood soldiers in a round of applause for the Doctor and he starts lowering his hands, he does it twice, once in a shot facing Yvonne and again in the next shot facing him.

Fear Her - S2-E14

New this month Continuity mistake: After the scribble creature has been analyzed and found to be made of graphite, the Doctor takes out a pencil and erases some of it to confirm this. The next time the graphite ball is seen, the erased area is gone.

xx:xx:xx

Fear Her - S2-E14

New this month Continuity mistake: When the Doctor takes a swipe out of a jar of jam in Trish's kitchen and sticks his finger in his mouth, he only has his index finger in his mouth. The scene cuts to Rose giving him a "WTF" look, and when it cuts back to the Doctor he suddenly has two fingers in his mouth.

xx:xx:xx

Fear Her - S2-E14

New this month Continuity mistake: When Rose grabs the drawing of the Doctor and the TARDIS from Chloe, the upper right corner is bent over rather sharply. In the close-up of the picture as Rose tells the Doctor she'll find a way to get him out of there, the paper is now only slightly wrinkled.

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.
