Continuity mistake: When the Sybilline priestesses kneel after the High Priestess speaks, in a shot from the front, Donna, sitting on the altar, has her hands in front of her - she's using her left hand to take the rope off her right wrist. In the next shot, from behind, her hands are at her sides. In addition, the rope still on her right wrist disappears. (00:27:05)
Continuity mistake: When the Doctor and Donna leave as Caecilius, Metella, Evelina and Quintus stand and watch the destruction of Pompeii, the TARDIS changes orientation between shots - in both of them, one from in front of the family and one from behind, the TARDIS' door, with the sign, is visible. (00:45:10)
Continuity mistake: When the Doctor and Donna are talking to Caecilius, when they introduce themselves as "Spartacus" and Caecilius makes several guesses as to their relationship, wondering if they're married or siblings, in shots facing them, the Doctor and Donna are standing fairly close together. In shots facing Caecilius, however, the Doctor and Donna are standing much further apart. (00:11:05)
Continuity mistake: After Lucius' arrival, when the Doctor escorts Donna towards the TARDIS, telling her they have to go, which she doesn't agree with, between shots his hands change position between having his right hand on her back, or having both his hands on her shoulders. (00:13:55)
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.
