On the Leadworth hospital rooftop scene, the Doctor progressively throws away a variety of neckties as he whittles the options down. The last of these neckties is yellow, which we see in a frontal mid-shot. When the action switches to a long shot, the tie is not present. When he again switches to the frontal mid-shot, the tie reappears. The wide shot of the departing Atraxi vessel shows Smith reaching into his coat pocket for the TARDIS key. When the shot cuts back to a close-up of Smith, he hasn't yet reached into his pocket, and it takes several seconds for him to complete the same action from that angle. See more »

I've seen about half the episodes of season 5 now and I have to say that Matt Smith just isn't a Doctor. Sometimes he brings some energetic performance, but that doesn't last and sometimes it feels like he's asleep in the middle of a scene. Now I also have to say that the stories are not of the high quality of seasons 1-4, but David Tennant could turn even the most boring episode into something entertaining. It has become a dull boring series now, I usually couldn't wait till the next episode came, but now, I don't care. I think Matt Smith is best compared to Sylvester McCoy, those Dr. Who episodes were also not the best they could make and Sylvester also was quite boring.
update: Well, now I have seen season 5 and a bit of 6, and unfortunately, it has more in common with the Sylvester McCoy then I could ever have imagined. The McCoy seasons were low budget, very very low budget, so cheap that all the episodes were filmed in the same park, every episode looked the same, and they never leave earth. The role of the Doctor is growing on Matt Smith, but my god, he is boring as hell!! Please bring back some descent actors, or how Cloris Leachman said it in the roast of Bob Saget "Can someone please hit me so I can see some stars".
Update2 (2012): well, it's clear Matt Smith has killed doctor who with his ridiculous presentation of Doctor Who, shame shame shame of such a good series.
Update season 7: well well well, what a surprise, Matt Smith has finally become Doctor Who!!! This season is just fantastic and brings back old memory's, keep up the good work!!
