Doctor Who

Journey to the Centre of the TARDIS - S7-E12

Continuity mistake: Before they enter the damaged TARDIS, when the Doctor watches Gregor put down Bram, and then asks Tricky why he's using a blast suit and respirator despite being an android, his hands are clasped in front of his chest in close-ups, but down below his waist in wide shots. (00:09:15)

Hide - S7-E11

Continuity mistake: When the Doctor puts on a harness during the preparations to rescue Hila, a flap on the front keeps switching between being straight out and being folded behind the strap it's attached to. (00:29:25)

Hide - S7-E11

Continuity mistake: While Emma is explaining to Clara what an empathic psychic is, the Doctor grabs a bottle of milk from the table and takes a swig out of it, holding the bottle in his right hand, before jumping into the conversation to state that empaths are both extremely compassionate and extremely lonely. While he's saying this, his left hand goes from gesturing in a close-up to holding the milk bottle in a wide shot. (00:06:25)

The Bells of Saint John - S7-E8

Continuity mistake: When Clara asks the "girl" coming down the stairs if she's a friend of Angie's, and the "girl" replies in a monotone, in the shot facing Clara the girl-robot is seen nearly at the bottom of the steps, but in the next shot facing the "girl", she's suddenly higher up the stairs.

The Bells of Saint John - S7-E8

Continuity mistake: When Clara is asleep in bed after the Doctor prevented her from being downloaded by the people in the Shard, he sets up a vase of flowers, a glass of water and a plate of Jammie Dodgers on her bedside table. The positions of the glass, the cookies on the plate, and the torn-open package the cookies came out of is seen when the Doctor leaves a half-eaten cookie on the plate in a close-up. When Clara wakes up, however, the cookies on the plate, the packaging and the glass have all changed positions. (00:19:20)

The Eleventh Hour - S5-E1

Revealing mistake: When an Atraxi ship appears over the village green, there's a shot where the Doctor, Amy and Rory turn to look at it, and they're standing in bright sunshine with their shadows visible - despite the fact that the Atraxi have surrounded the planet with a forcefield that dims sunlight, so those shadows shouldn't be possible. (00:36:05)

The Eleventh Hour - S5-E1

Continuity mistake: After Prisoner Zero is taken away, when Rory asks the Doctor if everything is back to normal, the Doctor is holding Rory's phone in his right hand while dialing a number. In the shot immediately after, focusing on Rory, where the Doctor walks by him and lightly smacks him on the shoulder, the phone is suddenly in the Doctor's left hand. (00:50:20)

The Eleventh Hour - S5-E1

Continuity mistake: After the Doctor spits out some yogurt that Amelia gave him and wipes off his mouth, there's still some yogurt on his face and chin. Immediately afterwards, he involuntarily jerks around a bit due to regeneration sickness, and the yogurt is gone. (00:06:35)

The Eleventh Hour - S5-E1

Continuity mistake: At one point while the Doctor is explaining to Amelia what the crack is, there's a shot where he has his hands on the wall examining the crack as he leans over Amelia's desk, then the camera cuts to a shot of Amelia where the Doctor is standing upright with his hands not touching the wall at all. (00:10:15)

The End of Time: Part Two - S4-E18

Continuity mistake: When Wilf takes out his revolver and offers it to the Doctor, he's holding it with the grip pointed toward the Doctor. In a wide shot shortly afterwards, Wilf's arm is moving to hold the gun out again, this time with the barrel closer to the Doctor. In the next shot, a close-up of Wilf, the gun is back to its first orientation. (00:25:20)

The End of Time: Part Two - S4-E18

Continuity mistake: When Shaun and Sylvia run out of the Nobles' house to look as Gallifrey begins to phase in and out next to Earth, Shaun's right hand, which he had on Sylvia's shoulder, changes position between shots just before he runs off looking for Donna. (00:40:40)

The Satan Pit (2) - S2-E12

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.

Midnight - S4-E10

Question: Is there any information on the entity shown in "Midnight?" It seems interesting enough to have some depth to it. It seemed to be bad in nature. It also seems to have been exactly what the woman that was possessed was afraid of.

Knever

Chosen answer: No, no information is avalible for the identity of the entity.
