Continuity mistake: In the scene when Donna asks the woman if she could borrow £10 because it's Christmas, you can see that Donna is wearing sports shoes instead of her usual white wedding shoes. (00:10:05)LizzieWD
Continuity mistake: When the Master stands up on the Valiant to announce that he is the Toclafane's "Master", President Winters is visible in the background, only the Toclafane aren't there. In the next shot, they return, buzzing around Winters' head.LizzieWD
Continuity mistake: Near the beginning of the episode, the Doctor and Jack destroy a Dalek who is inside the TARDIS. It is seen again later when the Doctor, Rose and Jack come back into the TARDIS after talking with the Dalek Emperor. Yet later when the Doctor is sending Rose home, there is no destroyed Dalek.

Continuity mistake: When Rose is sitting on a bench and she gets a news report on her phone, look at the top of the phone screen - it says the time is 11:35. However, several minutes later, when the Doctor and Mickey find Rose, the clock says it's only 11:36. (00:15:05)
Continuity mistake: Near the end of "Silence in the Libary," a sweeping shot shows that they're standing between two freestanding bookshelves. But at the beginning of this one, when they're supposed to be in the same place, they're able to break through a wall into a separate room.
Continuity mistake: When Yvonne Hartman is showing the Doctor through Torchwood after leaving the TARDIS, she goes to push a door open into the main building with one hand, but when the camera cuts to them entering the building she pushes them open with two hands. (00:20:10)
Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the episode, the police are chasing the bus and they give the numberplate as "Whiskey nine four seven Golf Hotel Mike." That is W947 GHM, but later on when the flying bus comes through the rift in time/space, the numberplate is completely different. This is because whilst filming in Dubai, the original bus broke down and had to be replaced.daleksam
Continuity mistake: When the Doctor is shot and killed while trying to regenerate on the beach, he falls with both legs extended. When River, Amy and Rory run up to him his left leg is bent. The camera cuts away again, and when it cuts back to show the Doctor's body one more time both legs are straight again. In addition, his left arm changes position between shots, between stretched out pointing away from his body on close-ups to bent with his hand resting on his thigh in wider shots. (00:08:15)
Continuity mistake: When the Doctor gets the rocket to work by tinkering with the boost reversal circuit, he picks it up with his left hand, sonics it, and then transfers it to his right hand, all in a shot where he has his back to the camera. In the next shot, facing him, he's holding it in his left hand as he pulls something off the device. The shot after that, facing Professor Yana again, the circuit is back in his right hand. (00:19:55)
Continuity mistake: When Clara takes Rigsy's chronolock, in the closeup of the tattoo Clara's lifting her hair with her right hand and showing the tattoo with her left hand, but in the next front-facing shot her hands have switched, she's holding up her hair with her left hand and showing the tattoo with her right hand.

Continuity mistake: At the beginning, Missy is using a knife to sharpen a stick to a point. Later in the scene, when she says to Clara that if they go rescue the Doctor, everything the Daleks can throw at them is between them and him, she lists only the stick among their assets. The knife is never seen or mentioned again after Missy was done with it.
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.
