Doctor Who

Blink - S3-E10

Corrected entry: 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.

New this month Correction: The Angels were moving above the street level. How many people look up on a regular basis, especially when it's raining as it was in the scene?

Smith and Jones - S3-E1

Corrected entry: When the Plasmavore drinks the doctor's blood, she inserts her straw into his neck just under his jaw on the right-hand side. However, when Martha starts CPR on the doctor after the Judoon leave, there is no visible wound from the straw's penetration.

Correction: When Martha performs CPR she is on the doctor's right & you can only see the left side of his head so you would not see the wound anyway.

Peter Wallace

Voyage of the Damned - S3-E16

Corrected entry: There in a noticeable gap between the second and third funnels on this Titanic. The original had even spacing between all four funnels, as does the model on Max Capricorn's desk.

Correction: How on earth is this a mistake? The Titanic in this episode is a spaceship with a nuclear storm drive, so there might be a gap for some engineering reason. And the model is not meant to be a completely accurate model, there are small discrepancies in most model ships.

Blink - S3-E10

Corrected entry: In the scene where Sally and Lawrence are retreating into the basement, the Angels are causing the lights to go out. The house they are in has been abandoned for years, so where is the electricity for the lights coming from in the first place?

Correction: The angels probably have a generator somewhere if they're keeping the TARDIS in the basement of the house. They would need the light to see if there were any alternate ways of breaking into the TARDIS. It would be easy to get one, considering that they managed to get a huge blue box all the way through London without anyone noticing, why couldn't they get a generator?

Voyage of the Damned - S3-E16

Corrected entry: In this episode, Mr. Copper was played by Clive Swift. To those who are familiar with British television, among other works, he played the long-suffering husband Richard Bucket (pronounced Bouquet) to his over-bearing wife Hyacinth in the sit-com Keeping Up Appearances.

Movie Nut

Correction: Naming an actor who is credited for the show is not trivia unless there's some connection with his or her former work.


Blink - S3-E10

Corrected entry: In the episode 'Blink,' the stone angels are able to move when no-one's looking at them. But there are some shots (such as when Sally leaves Wester Drumlin's) where no-one (except the audience) is facing the angels. Why aren't they moving? Even just a little movement, like breathing. They're still just stone statues.

Correction: Just because the angels can move, doesn't mean they always do. They live their lives as statues.

Daleks in Manhattan (1) - S3-E4

Corrected entry: When The Doctor, Martha, Solomon, and Frank first enter the sewers, Frank mentions, "You could hide a lorry down here." Lorry is a British term, not an American one. Because this story is set in the United States, he should say, "You could hide a truck down here."


Correction: Frank says "you could hide an ARMY down here".


The Family of Blood (2) - S3-E9

Corrected entry: When Headmaster Rocastle is outside in front of the school, he is talking directly to Jeremy Banes. He tells him that "people have died". However, the Headmaster addresses him as "Mr. Smith". Mr. Smith is the name the Doctor assumed when he became human.

Correction: I don't understand how this classifies as a mistake, it's merely stating facts that happened during the episode. There's no mistake here. Rocastle was talking about The Doctor, but he's known as John Smith while he's human.


Gridlock - S3-E3

Corrected entry: At the very start, two people are in a car, but it's being torn apart by Macra. The woman says that they'd lied to the computer and said they had three people instead of two. Yet when the Doctor is in a car with the man at the bottom layer of cars, the man says that if they lied and said that they had two people instead of three, the wheel would automatically lock.


Professor Lazarus

Correction: That's not at all what he said. The Doctor asked why he couldn't manually drive down to the fast line. The driver responded that the wheel was locked, as in, it's always locked. It only unlocks if there are three people in the car.


Evolution of the Daleks (2) - S3-E5

Corrected entry: In the scene where Tallulah, Frank, and Martha are looking through the plans on the top of the Empire State Building, Tallulah goes to look out at the view. From the top of the Empire State Building, she can see the city and from her POV the Empire State Building is well lit up center frame. It shows the same shot several times throughout the episode.

Correction: That is not the Empire State Building lit up in the center of the screen, it is the Chrysler building, which was the world's tallest building for 11 months - until the Empire State Building was completed and surpassed it.

Voyage of the Damned - S3-E16

Corrected entry: During the bridge scene, a host's halo brushes The Doctor's right arm, but goes nowhere near his left, which The Doctor then grabs as if he'd been hit there.

Correction: It does hit his left arm you can see the blue "sparks" on his left arm. Also it doesn't touch his right arm.

Blink - S3-E10

Corrected entry: The fundemental feature of the statue monsters is that they cannot move if anyone/anything is looking at them. At the end they are tricked into looking at each other (by the Tardis dematerialising) and so are trapped forever. But they are in a basement with a light on, when the light goes off they will escape. In fact they earlier made the light blink so they could move and attack the good guys.

New this month Correction: Weeping Angels can see in the dark.

Correction: This is a character mistake at best. The fact that this mistake was made in no way changes the events of the episode. It merely means that the threat wasn't neutralized while it was mistakenly believed to be so.

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.



As the camera zooms out when Rose is captured and Cassandra is about to "go" into Rose, the psychograft disappears, but in the next shot of Rose it appears again.
