Doctor Who

Amy's Choice - S5-E7

Continuity mistake: When Amy puts on her poncho and says "If we're all gonna die, let's die looking like a Peruvian folk band", the slit changes orientation between shots as she walks to stand between the Doctor and Rory; from across her shoulders to pointing downwards. And no, she doesn't adjust the poncho onscreen to account for this. (00:27:35)

The Beast Below - S5-E2

Continuity mistake: When Liz 10 backs away in pain before asking the Doctor to stop making the Star Whale's screams audible, she raises both her hands in the wide shot, but only has her left hand up in the following close-up. (00:29:31)


The Beast Below - S5-E2

Continuity mistake: When the Doctor and Amy are sitting and watching Mandy and Amy is asking what's so important about one girl crying, the Doctor has his hands clasped just below his chin, only for them to jump in front of his mouth in the next shot. (00:08:23)

The Beast Below - S5-E2

Continuity mistake: When Amy is floating in space outside the TARDIS, her hair is down around her shoulders in the shots of her from above, but floating around her head in the close-ups of her face. (00:03:08)


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)

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.

Chosen answer: The Master knows that deep down, he deserves death for the crimes that he's committed throughout his life, and since he regards The Doctor as his arch-foe, he expects it to be at his hands. The fact that The Doctor is still willing to forgive him for all of his crimes hurts him more deeply than death would.
