Genesis of the Daleks - S12-E4

Continuity mistake: When Sarah falls from the scaffolding, a plank of wood saves her from death. Trouble is, she fell a foot from the outside of the scaffolding and most of the plank was inside the scaffolding, therefore her feet would have hit it and she could only have landed with her head pointing inwards. But when we see her, her head is pointing outwards. (00:01:25)

Robot - S12-E1

Continuity mistake: At one point in the story, the Doctor hurriedly types out a letter to leave for the Brigadier and Sarah Jane, and pins it to the TARDIS. Later when Sarah Jane reads the note, you can see it's been handwritten.

Genesis of the Daleks - S12-E4

Continuity mistake: At the very beginning, Sarah comments to the Doctor that they haven't returned to "the beacon." When they were last on Nerva - in "The Ark in Space" - it was referred to as a space station. It doesn't become Nerva beacon until the next episode.

Revenge of the Cybermen - S12-E5

Continuity mistake: The use of gold against the Cybermen is wildly inconsistent in this episode. It is said that it suffocates them. Yet Cyberman have been seen functioning perfectly in vacuum ("The Moonbase" and "The Wheel in Space"), it affects the Cybermats, who are little more than metal drones, and it affects the Cybermen's radar, which does not breathe.

Continuity mistake: When the Doctor drops the time ring, it lands very close to the wall. When he picks it up later, however, it's in the middle of the corridor. (00:09:40)

Daz

Revenge of the Cybermen - S12-E5

Continuity mistake: For a supposedly emotionless creature, the Cyberleader is easily provoked to a fit of rage, including throwing the Doctor around the Beacon.

Mistakes

(Part 4) After Omega takes off his mask and looks in the mirror, when he sees that his physical body doesn't exist he puts his mask back on and screams, but when he shouts, "If I exist only by my will, then my will is to destroy," Omega's mask pops up off his face, and we can see the actor's blackened face as he shouts the last bit of his dialogue.
