The Family of Blood (2) - S3-E9

Continuity mistake: As the scarecrow-soldiers advance on the school to do battle, the scene cuts to Sister-Of-Mine, looking out from a school window. There is heavy rainfall outside. When we immediately cut back to the advancing scarecrows, it is a cold, clear night.

The Shakespeare Code - S3-E2

Other mistake: When The Doctor and Martha are in their bedroom, there are many candles lit. Later, when Martha blows out one candle, the whole room goes black.

Suggested correction: This is a common film technique, as audiences aren't exactly interested in watching someone walking around the room blowing out candles. She just probably blew them out later, and the pitch black is just showing that part of the room is dark now.

Human Nature (1) - S3-E8

Other mistake: Joan puts her stethoscope in her ears backwards when listening to John Smith's single heart.

Time Crash - S3-E15

Continuity mistake: At the end of "The Last of the Time Lords," The Doctor flicks two switches on the console just before the Titanic hits. In the same scene in "Time Crash" the last control he hits is a large button.

The Runaway Bride - S3-E14

Revealing mistake: In the scene when Donna asks the woman if she could borrow £10 because it's Christmas, you can see that Donna is wearing sports shoes instead of her usual white wedding shoes.

The Sound of Drums (2) - S3-E12

Factual error: The army shoot at Martha's car and you can see sparks where the bullets bounce off her windscreen. But, at that close range, one of those things can go through a brick! I know you're supposed to allow a bit of disbelief, but this is taking it too far.

Blink - S3-E10

Continuity mistake: When Lawrence is watching the weeping angel, just after seeing the Doctor's film/easter egg, he turnes away for a split second. By the time he turns back, you see the weeping angel's face only inches from Lawrence's face. Yet, you then cut to a wide shot were you see the angel's arms outstretched, so its face is about half a metre away from Lawrence's face.

Voyage of the Damned - S3-E16

Continuity mistake: When Mr. Copper is talking about how what they're doing could get them ten years in jail, the cut on his forehead changes sides.

The Sound of Drums (2) - S3-E12

Continuity mistake: When the Master stands up on the Valiant to announce that he is "the Toclafane's Master", President Winters is visible in the background, only the Toclafane aren't there. In the next shot, they return, buzzing around Winters' head.

The Runaway Bride - S3-E14

Character mistake: When The Doctor is taking Donna to 4.6 billion BC to watch the Earth Formation, he says that it is the furthest back the TARDIS has ever been. But in the 5th Doctor episode "Castrovalva" the TARDIS drifts to 13.2 billion BC and the formation of the galaxy.

Blink - S3-E10

Plot hole: The Weeping Angels move across a busy street with dozens of people around looking, yet later on they can't get across a couple of meters in two minutes with only Larry and Sally looking.

Last of the Time Lords (3) - S3-E13

Deliberate mistake: The Master uses his laser screwdriver to regenerate the Doctor. While he is in fast motion, on the TV screen Martha is looking at, you can see Lucy's arms are also in fast motion.

Blink - S3-E10

Audio problem: While Billy Shipton is showing Sally Sparrow the TARDIS (in the room where he keeps the abandoned cars), just after he says, '[You] can't even get in it', he rattles the TARDIS' handle to demonstrate. Watch carefully: When he shakes the handle we hear a rattling noise as if the door is shaking, but in fact the door stays rock solid.

The Family of Blood (2) - S3-E9

Revealing mistake: In the close up shot of the boy's machine guns firing, in the background a white truck can be seen driving across the green countryside; not appropriate for the time period of the story.

The Shakespeare Code - S3-E2

Audio problem: When the Doctor and Martha are watching Shakespeare in the Globe, Martha says "He's a bit different to his portraits". After she says this on the left of the screen the Doctor's head comes into shot and you can clearly see by his facial expressions he is saying something to Martha, yet no sound is heard.

Professor Lazarus

Last of the Time Lords (3) - S3-E13

Continuity mistake: Just after The Master destroys the gun in four parts, there is a shot from exactly the same angle and the bag has disappeared. There is then a shot from the other direction and the wreckage is still there.

The Shakespeare Code - S3-E2

Character mistake: David Tennant has a strong Scottish accent, and puts on the Doctor's English one. When David and Freema Agyeman are lying on the bed in the hotel, David forgets his English accent when he says, "There's something I'm missing, Martha."

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.
