Continuity mistake: At the lake, when the Doctor stands in front of Agatha and tells the Vespiform, "You're not meant to be like this! You've got the wrong template in your mind!", in the close-up shot he has his left arm raised, but in the Vespiform's POV shot he has his right arm raised. (00:39:45)
Continuity mistake: When Robina Redmond is announced, and Lady Eddison says, "She's the absolute hit of the social scene - a must," in the first shot, Lady Eddison is standing close enough to her wheelchair-bound husband to cast a shadow on him. In the second shot, the distance between them has suddenly increased. (00:05:10)
Continuity mistake: After questioning the houseguests, the Doctor and Agatha are talking. She uses the phrase "little grey cells", and the Doctor responds, "Oh, yes, little grey cells. Good old Poirot." When he does this, he's holding a saucer in his left hand and rests a teacup he's holding in his right hand atop it, as he turns toward the chair that the suspects were sitting in. In the next shot, as he walks over and sits in the chair, he is suddenly holding the teacup and saucer in his right hand, with his left hand by his side. (00:13:55)
Continuity mistake: After explaining that he's laced the soup with pepper, the Doctor, when he says, "Anyone got the shivers?", turns his head from looking to his left so he's looking in front of him. In the following wide shot, his head is turned to his left again. (00:26:10)
Continuity mistake: When Donna suggests that she distract the next guard using her "womanly wiles", she flips her hair behind her shoulder. In the next shot, when the Doctor tells her to save her wiles for later, the hair has spontaneously moved to its former position. (00:19:35)skater49th
Continuity mistake: When the Doctor activates the teleport, Donna is onboard the Sontaran ship, holding a cell phone in her left hand. When she arrives in the basement of the ATMOS factory, she's holding the rubber mallet in her left hand, and her right hand is empty, with the phone nowhere to be seen. (00:32:40)
Continuity mistake: When Donna is sneaking around the Sontaran ship, she's carrying Martha's old phone, which she's using to stay in touch with the Doctor, and the rubber mallet from the TARDIS. There are times when one of the two objects, the phone more often, is missing from her hands with no explanation.
Continuity mistake: When Private Harris orders the two hypnotized workers in the basement of the ATMOS factory to let him through the door they're guarding, he's holding a torch in his left hand, and when shown from behind has that hand down by his side. In the Sontarans' video feed, which also shows him from behind, his left hand is on his assault rifle. (00:11:15)
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.
