Twice Upon a Time - S11-E1

Other mistake: After the Doctor regenerates, there's a close-up of the Thirteenth Doctor's eye with the console room reflected in it. The reflection is the same orientation as a shot from behind her immediately prior, which should not be the case. Take note of the positions of the door and time rotor in both shots. (01:00:45)

Twice Upon a Time - S11-E1

Continuity mistake: When the Captain's arrival at the South Pole is first shown, walking up while Twelve is explaining to One that the frozen snow means something is very wrong with time and asking if either of them is a doctor, to which Twelve responds, "You trying to be funny?", the two Doctors are standing right next to each other. When the Captain's arrival is shown from his perspective, however, the Doctors are standing much further apart when Twelve says the line. (00:09:00)

Forest of the Dead (2) - S4-E9

Continuity mistake: When the Doctor realises that the Vashta Nerada infesting the Library came from the books, he rubs the back of his head with his right hand, with his left hand in his trouser pocket. When Other Dave speaks, and the Doctor turns to him and discovers he's been eaten, he takes his left hand from the back of his head, with his right hand in his pocket. In the shot after that, his left hand is back in his pocket with his right hand in position as if he'd removed it from the back of his head. (00:18:30)

The Eaters of Light - S10-E11

Continuity mistake: When the Doctor and Nardole are being held by the Picts in a circle of weapons being pointed at them, when Kar's brother points a knife at the Doctor and warns him not to speak until she gets back, his arm is almost fully extended in shots from above and facing the Doctor, but much more bent in shots facing him.

The Doctor Falls - S10-E13

The Pilot - S10-E2

Continuity mistake: After the Doctor tells Bill that nothing gets through the TARDIS doors, when she responds that they're made of wood and have windows, the Doctor's left hand changes position between shots from being apparently by his side to suddenly resting on the door. (00:28:40)

The Unicorn and the Wasp - S4-E7

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)

The Unicorn and the Wasp - S4-E7

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)

The Unicorn and the Wasp - S4-E7

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)
