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 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.

Add time

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.

Add time

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.

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."

Revealing mistake: When the people in Hoovertown are meeting around the campfire, it's raining. However, everyone's clothes and hats are completely dry.

Smith and Jones - S3-E1

Factual error: A reflection of a full moon is shown at the end. But when Earth is viewed from the moon, half of it is in the light. For a full moon to take place, most of the Earth would have to be dark.

Suggested correction: When the reflection of the full Moon is viewed it is night time several hours after we saw the Earth from the Moon.

Evolution of the Daleks (2) - S3-E5

Continuity mistake: When Martha is searching how the daleks changed the design of the Empire State Building, she is examining the plans for the top of the tower. In the first shot where the new plans are visible, the upper right shows a more detailed picture of a plate of dalek armour. Seconds later, when we can see the new plans again, it's the same side view but the enlarged picture of the plate with the dalek bumps is gone. These are still the same new plans (the old plans are on her right) and there was no time or reason for Martha to take another page.

The Sound of Drums (2) - S3-E12

Continuity mistake: When gassing the cabinet members, the Master puts on a gas mask. The Valiant logo is above the tube, and upside down. In the next shot, it is below the tube, and the right way up.

Blink - S3-E10

Continuity mistake: When Sally Sparrow is about to take the key from the weeping angel, at first the key is on a piece of string, and that string is wrapped around the weeping angel's left hand. In the next shot, and when she pulls the key out, the string is now only in the angel's palm.

Revealing mistake: At the end when the Doctor makes it snow, in the wide shot you can see the snow blows in from the left side, showing that they used a snow machine just off-camera.

The Runaway Bride - S3-E14

Revealing mistake: When the Doctor goes to toss the trio of Christmas balls up, the two times after the first toss are re-used shots of the first toss. His movements of his right arm to bring up the controller are too exact to be coincidence.

Daleks in Manhattan (1) - S3-E4

Plot hole: The guy working for the Daleks offers the homeless men in Hooverville a dollar a day to go into the sewer because the Daleks need more people. Most of the people refused and one called it slave wages. If they were not getting paid until they came back, and since the Daleks were planning on experimenting on them, the people weren't going to come back; why not offer them a large amount of money big enough to entice them but small enough not to be suspicious?

Blink - S3-E10

Visible crew/equipment: As Sally enters the living room in the abandoned house, in the shot where she walks through the doorway, a cameraman holding the camera can be seen reflected in the window of the door next to her.

Evolution of the Daleks (2) - S3-E5

Revealing mistake: When Dalek Sec picks up the remains of the radio and turns it in his hands, the "Hamilton" label on the front of the radio is written backwards, indicating that the shot has been flipped horizontally.

The Family of Blood (2) - S3-E9

Revealing mistake: The pyrotechnic mortars used in the destruction of The Family's ship are visible in the shots leading up to their detonation. As The Family run from their ship through the field, the mortars are visible against the branches behind them. Shortly afterwards, they detonate, creating the illusion that the invisible craft has exploded.

Continuity mistake: When Timothy opens the watch into the girl's eyes, Jeremy Baines shouts "Timelord", then a few seconds later; "What are we waiting for. ATTACK!" There is then a shot looking down on the scarecrows, Jeremy and Jenny. If you look closely at Jeremy Baines, it's a different actor playing him.

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.
