Season 3 generally

Trivia: Possible Spoiler: At the time of this writing, it is generally believed that the "Mister Saxon" referred to throughout Season 3 will turn out to be The Master. One piece of evidence backing this theory is The Master's penchant for anagrammatic aliases: Mister Saxon is an anagram of "Master No Six," and if it's true, John Simm would be the 6th actor to play The Master. [Russell T Davies (who wrote most of the episodes) has said that the anagram is pure coincidence which was picked up by some people, but was completely unintended. Still interesting regardless.]

Voyage of the Damned - S3-E16

Trivia: Max Capricorn Cruise Lines' logo shows the Titanic flying from a crescent moon. But look at it another way, and it looks like a sinking ship.

The Sound of Drums (2) - S3-E12

Trivia: During the episode, the Master is seen watching the Teletubbies on his laptop. This is very similar to an episode during the John Pertwee era where the Master, played by Roger Delgado, is seen watching an episode of The Clangers whilst in prison.

The Runaway Bride - S3-E14

Trivia: When the Doctor sends the banknotes flying out into the street, all of the notes have David Tennant's or Phil Collinson's (the producer) faces on them, with quotes from the Fourth and Tenth Doctor (like "no second chances - I'm that sort of a man"). The notes have since become collector's items, selling often for about 50 pounds each.

The Sound of Drums (2) - S3-E12

Trivia: When the Doctor turns Martha's TV around to find the bomb, there's a sticker above it from Magpie Electricals, the TV shop from "The Idiot's Lantern." (00:14:25)

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.
