New this week Continuity mistake: When the Sybilline priestesses kneel after the High Priestess speaks, in a shot from the front, Donna, sitting on the altar, has her hands in front of her - she's using her left hand to take the rope off her right wrist. In the next shot, from behind, her hands are at her sides. In addition, the rope still on her right wrist disappears.

Partners in Crime - S4-E1

Continuity mistake: At the end of the episode, Donna piles suitcases in the Doctor's arms in preparation to leave with him in the TARDIS, and places a striped hat box on top. The bags stay that way for a while as the camera cuts back and forth between them, and you can see the stack of luggage as the camera films the Doctor from behind. Then, as soon as the camera cuts back to the Doctor's face when Donna leaves to give her mother the car keys, suddenly he has one bag under his arm and another in his hand, and the rest of the bags are on the ground with the hat box stacked neatly on top. In addition, when the scene cuts from Donna closing the hatch of her car to her and the Doctor standing by the TARDIS, a large floral-patterned suitcase has appeared, which she was not shown removing from the vehicle.

Partners in Crime - S4-E1

Silence in the Library (1) - S4-E8

Continuity mistake: After Miss Evangelista is killed, we see her communicator as her "ghost" slowly fades. In one shot we see from a slight distance the lights left lit tick down to 3, then a short while passes, we cut back and the lights are back to 4. They then tick down to 3 again.

Forest of the Dead (2) - S4-E9

Continuity mistake: Near the end of "Silence in the Libary," a sweeping shot shows that they're standing between two freestanding bookshelves. But at the beginning of this one, when they're supposed to be in the same place, they're able to break through a wall into a separate room.

Planet of the Dead - S4-E15

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the episode, the police are chasing the bus and they give the numberplate as starting with 'Whiskey zero four seven' (Or something similar). That is W047, yet later on when the flying bus comes through the rift in time/space, the numberplate is completely different. This is because whilst filming in Dubai, the original bus broke down and had to be replaced.

The Stolen Earth (1) - S4-E12

Continuity mistake: In the scene toward the end where the Doctor is shot by the Dalek, when the camera is shooting from Rose's point of view, the Doctor is gasping and struggling for breath. However when the camera shows the Doctor from behind, he's lying completely still in Rose's arms. The camera cuts back to Rose's POV and he's struggling again, with no time in between for the change in his movements.

Turn Left - S4-E11

Continuity mistake: The house that Donna and her family are shown living in in Series 4 is different from the house the Doctor dropped her off at at the end of her first appearance, "The Runaway Bride." You would assume they'd merely moved - except that in this episode, Donna and her family are shown living in their Series 4 house before the events of "The Runaway Bride", on the day Donna gets the job that leads to her meeting the Doctor in the first place.

The End of Time - S4-E17

The Abigail Naismith-Master is wearing very high heels and should be taller than the other Masters.

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.
