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. (00:10:00)

Revealing mistake: During the first conversation between Fire Lord Ozai and General Zhao we can see that Ozai's eyes move from left to right while he looks in the direction of Zhao's chest, this revealing the use of a prompter.

Revealing mistake: During a large battle scene between the Fire Nation and the Northern Water Tribe, the camera pans to reveal a Fire Nation soldier fighting with no one.

Army of Ghosts (1) - S2-E15

Continuity mistake: When Rose presents her mother with the Bazoolium, she's holding it in her left hand. When the view switches to look at Jackie, it shifts to Rose's right hand and then immediately back to her left when the view restores to the original vantage point. (00:02:45)

Rose - S1-E1

Revealing mistake: When Mickey closes the wheelie bin lid, he then finds the plastic stuck to his hands, he lifts his hands up and the plastic stretches like tar. If you look closely when he lifts his hands up for the first time, you'll see that a shadow of one of his hands is cast on his shirt, but there is no shadow of the strands of plastic stuck to his fingers. Additionally, when he turns around to pull away from the bin, he crosses the strands over each other, but they are still parallel in the following scene. (00:22:40 - 00:23:10)

Rose - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When the three bride Autons attack Jackie, and they open their hands one at a time, it is clear that when the second Auton opens its hand, all three are already open. After it cuts to Rose, and back to Jackie again, the third one opens (even though we just saw it already open). (00:38:15)

The Impossible Planet (1) - S2-E11

Continuity mistake: When the Doctor and Ida descend into the core of Krop Tor, the screen charting their progress shows 39% Oxygen. After cutting away to an overhead shot of the two, the camera cuts back to the same descent display, only now the oxygen percentage (which has been descending constantly all this time) is at 42%. (00:35:25)

New Earth - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: 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. (00:11:45)

Factual error: When Jess arrives late at the final match, she is brought on as a substitute. Yet, the referee should know about the possible substitutes before they are brought on - he didn't even know about Jess. Jess said she wouldn't be able to make the match due to her sister's wedding. Therefore, she would have been removed from the team line-up.

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

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.

This explains why the mistake exists, however its still a valid mistake despite there being an explanation for it.

Max Thompson

Suggested correction: When Martha blows the single candle's flame out and it goes black, it's not their whole room going black, it's the screen that does a "cut to black" to effectively terminate the shot. This instantaneous dramatic transition punctuates Martha's extreme annoyance with the Doctor.

The Borrowers (1997)

Audio problem: When Spiller throws the rope in the milk bottle trying to pull Peagreen out, you can hear him straining and grunting to keep a hold of it but his face and mouth are both relaxed.

Continuity mistake: At the sing-off, when the Chipettes are singing, Ian uses his phone to make a video. At the end, he winks to his phone. However, when the video is seen on a website by some record executives, Ian does not wink.
