Continuity mistake: When Lazarus starts his speech, there is a shot of the Doctor and Martha watching. The Doctor has his arms at his sides. The scene cuts to Lazarus speaking, a shot in which the Doctor is visible from behind, unmoving. In the next shot of the Doctor, he has his arms crossed.
Continuity mistake: During the reception, the newly rejuvenated Lazarus takes a tray of hors d'oeuvres from a waiter and starts eating them while talking to Lady Thaw, just as the Doctor and Martha walk up. Later in the conversation, just as Lazarus says to the Doctor that what happened inside the capsule was exactly what was supposed to, the tray vanishes.
Continuity mistake: When Francine calls Tish over to ask her if she's seen Martha and the Doctor anywhere, Leo is taking a drink from a nearly-empty glass of champagne. When Leo is next seen on camera, as Francine asks Tish if Martha had ever mentioned the Doctor to her before, he's drinking from a much fuller glass of champagne.
Continuity mistake: Near the end, when Martha asks the Daleks what's going on and one of them explains that they are planning to evolve to live outside their shells, the Doctor changes position between shots while he's shown listening to this, standing behind Frank and Laszlo.
Continuity mistake: When the Doctor, after being placed on hold while attempting to call the police, talks to Brannigan and Valerie about other people he could contact, in close-ups, Valerie has her right hand resting on the top of her seat. In a wide shot, she lowers her hand, but in the next close-up of her, it's jumped to its previous position.
Continuity mistake: When Lilith runs her hand along the side of the Doctor's head to distract him so she can get some of his hair, in the wide shots her fingers are extended past his ear. In a shot facing him, however, her fingers are curled and in front of his ear.
Revealing mistake: After arriving in New New York's undercity, the Doctor and Martha find a screen playing the news. The Doctor tinkers with it and gets a video of flying cars passing a picturesque view of the city. This is a clip from the last episode set on this planet, "New Earth" - the fact that in a close-up of the screen, the TARDIS can be seen parked on the cliffs as it was in that episode clinches it.
