Doctor Who

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.

The Abigail Naismith-Master is wearing very high heels and should be taller than the other Masters. (00:56:00 - 00:56:50)

Cold Blood (2) - S5-E9

Continuity mistake: When Amy is trying not to forget Rory, the memory of him getting shot does not show the laser blast striking him.
