Continuity mistake: During the early scene with the Cybermen outside St Paul's, when Missy pulls out her phone/disintegrator weapon and shows the Doctor pictures of the Cybermen going viral all over the planet, and when she prepares to take a picture of the two of them, her grip on the device, as well as which hand she's holding it in, keeps changing between shots.
Continuity mistake: When Courtney comes into the caretaker's room in search of paper towels, there is a "keep out" sign (reading "Go Away Humans") hanging in the window of the inner door. When the Doctor is talking to her just before she leaves, the sign is missing. Over the course of the rest of the episode, the sign proceeds to appear and disappear a few more times.
Continuity mistake: Near the end, when the Doctor and Clara are standing by the TARDIS on the planet they took the Teller and its mate to, Clara's hands go from touching the buttons on her jacket to loosely clasped lower down. In the third shot of her, they return to the first position.
Continuity mistake: During the scene in the barn where the three Doctors have their hands on the button, when Eleven notices Clara crying and asks her what's wrong, the Doctors' hands go from stacked on top of each other on the button to only touching it with their fingers. (01:02:40)
Continuity mistake: When the Doctor is talking to River just before entering his own timeline to rescue Clara, in the shots facing him, the glowing column representing his timeline is not visible, despite the fact that a wide shot reveals he's standing right in front of it.
Continuity mistake: When Clara draws the Doctor's attention to the vision of a forest appearing in the archway, the candelabra she is holding has two candles in it, with the third hole empty. Moments later, after the apparition has disappeared, there are now three candles in it. (00:15:30)
Continuity mistake: For most of the episode, there is a thunderstorm going on at Caliburn House. However, when the TARDIS is seen dematerializing and rematerializing when the Doctor and Clara go to take pictures of the ghost throughout time, it's dry in the grove where it was parked. The first time is especially noticeable, as moments later we are shown Professor Palmer and Emma looking through a rain-spattered window, commenting on the noise of the TARDIS' engines.
Continuity mistake: When the Doctor and Clara are sitting at their table on the balcony, talking, the level of Clara's mostly-finished milkshake changes several times, most noticeably when she and the Doctor are arguing over who is going to use her computer to hack the bad guys' systems.
Continuity mistake: When the Doctor and Clara, while seated at their table on the balcony, are arguing over who has the better hacking skills while pulling her computer back and forth, in overhead shots their table is somewhere in the middle of the balcony. This contrasts with all other shots, which show their table right next to the railing.
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.
