The bags stay that way for a while as the camera cuts back and forth between them, and you can see the stack of luggage as the camera films the Doctor from behind. Then, as soon as the camera cuts back to the Doctor's face when Donna leaves to give her mother the car keys, suddenly he has one bag under his arm and another in his hand, and the rest of the bags are on the ground with the hat box stacked neatly on top. In addition, when the scene cuts from Donna closing the hatch of her car to her and the Doctor standing by the TARDIS, a large floral-patterned suitcase has appeared, which she was not shown removing from the vehicle.

The Witch's Familiar - S9-E3

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.

Listen - S8-E4

Continuity mistake: After the Doctor is knocked unconscious, Clara uses the psychic circuitry to pilot the TARDIS to what turns out to be a moment in the Doctor's past, in the barn first seen in "The Day of the Doctor." The loft in the barn where the young First Doctor is sleeping in bed, however, was not present in the previous episode.

Suggested correction: These events take place thousands of years apart. Buildings (especially wooden ones) are likely to change in that time.

The barn appears three times, in "The Day of the Doctor", "Listen" and "Hell Bent." Its appearance in "The Day of the Doctor" is chronologically in-between its appearances in "Listen" and "Hell Bent." Both of the two latter episodes have the loft, but "The Day of the Doctor" doesn't. That's the mistake here.

Seconds later, when we can see the new plans again, it's the same side view but the enlarged picture of the plate with the Dalek bumps is gone.
