The Lie of the Land - S10-E9

New this month Continuity mistake: When Bill asks the Doctor to tell her if his cooperation with the Monks is a trick or an illusion while holding him at gunpoint, she's holding the pistol in a two-handed grip. When the camera cuts to the Doctor as he lies that it isn't a trick, and then back to Bill, she's suddenly holding the gun with one hand.

New this month Suggested correction: The problem is this doesn't occur in consecutive shots. After the first closeup of Bill there's a shot facing the Doctor as he says, "It's not a trick. It's not a plan. I have joined the Monks," and in that moment Bill has ample time to simply lower her arm/hand. No continuity issue in this sequence of shots.

If you look really carefully at the shot immediately after the first one, facing the Doctor, Bill's hand, holding the gun, is visible - and she's only holding it in one hand in that shot as well.

I've got it playing now as I'm typing. I understand what you're saying, but compare this shot to the prior shot from a similar angle, right after Bill has taken the gun, just as the Doctor says, "Bill, put.put the gun down," then she replies, "I'm serious, Doctor." Here we can see Bill's right hand high on the gun's grip, with her left support hand quite a bit lower, and it's at the same height as her right sleeve at the wrist. Now if we look at the specific shot we're talking about, we really can only see Bill's right hand because the shot cuts off at the bottom of the screen, so we can't even see that sleeve or her left hand. It's offscreen.

Thin Ice - S10-E4

New this month Continuity mistake: After the Doctor and Bill are tied up in the tent of explosives, when Lord Sutcliffe pulls out his pocket watch to check the time and notes that the elephant is being brought onto the ice, in a shot facing the Doctor and Bill the watch chain is taut. When the shot cuts to look at Sutcliffe and his henchman, the chain is slack.

The Pyramid at the End of the World - S10-E8

Continuity mistake: When the Doctor, Bill, Nardole, et al. first see the pyramid their long shadows are cast directly in front of them, but when the Doctor decides to "bring it" and crosses the barrier, their long shadows are cast directly to their right. Then it keeps changing in the following shots when the Doctor approaches the pyramid.

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.
