Continuity mistake: When the Doctor takes a swipe out of a jar of jam in Trish's kitchen and sticks his finger in his mouth, he only has his index finger in his mouth. The scene cuts to Rose giving him a "WTF" look, and when it cuts back to the Doctor he suddenly has two fingers in his mouth.
Continuity mistake: When Rose grabs the drawing of the Doctor and the TARDIS from Chloe, the upper right corner is bent over rather sharply. In the close-up of the picture as Rose tells the Doctor she'll find a way to get him out of there, the paper is now only slightly wrinkled.
Continuity mistake: When the Isolus leaves Chloe, in the shot facing Chloe where it says goodbye, Chloe's hand is raised to the wall, where the two were drawing a picture of the Earth. In the wide shot where the Isolus leaves Chloe's mouth, her arm is lowered. In the next close-up of Chloe, when she says "Mum?", her arm is raised again.
Continuity mistake: In shots of the base's Ood habitation area from above, the Ood are shown in four rows from left to right, with the Ood in the third row standing with their backs against the room's middle partition and the other rows sitting on benches. However, in a shot from inside the lower area when the Doctor and Rose first go to Ood habitation, the third row is shown sitting as well. Not until later in the episode, when Danny is ordering the Ood to remain in the room, is the third row shown standing again.
Continuity mistake: When the underground cavern is first shown, the descent pod is at the bottom of a pile of rubble up against the wall at the bottom of the drilled shaft. However, in the shot of the cavern shown when Ida says "My god, that's beautiful," the pod and pile of rubble is further away from the wall.
Continuity mistake: For most of the scene where he's probing Reinette's mind to find out what the clockwork droids want with her, placing his hands on her temples, the Doctor's left hand is positioned with two fingers on either side of her ear. When he realises that she's seeing some of his memories, his ring finger has jumped to being in front of her ear, without him taking his hands from her head.
Continuity mistake: When the Doctor, Bill, Nardole, et al. first see the pyramid their long shadows are cast directly in front of them, but when the Doctor decides to "bring it" and crosses the barrier, their long shadows are cast directly to their right. Then it keeps changing in the following shots when the Doctor approaches the pyramid.
Continuity mistake: When Erica's eyeglasses get smashed, they're seen in a closeup inside her bag and the lens frame is cracked, but when she takes it out of her bag both lens frames are intact around the broken lenses. Also, when Erica takes the eyeglasses out of her bag she holds the eyeglasses' right temple in the closeup, but in the next shot it's the left temple being held up.
Visible crew/equipment: Right before the TARDIS materializes in the lab at Agrofuel, there's an overhead shot of Erica at the desk, and the two green tape X marks on the floor behind her are visible, precisely where Douglas had collapsed and his white protective gear should be. Note there's an earlier overhead shot of the same area before the incident, when Erica brings Douglas the coffee, and those tape marks are not there.
Continuity mistake: During the Doctor and Sarah Jane's conversation in the café, when Sarah says that she missed him and he responds that she was getting on with her life, in a shot facing Sarah, the Doctor's hands are not visible repairing K9. In the next shot, facing him, his left hand is suddenly on the robot, in a position where it should have been visible in the preceding shot.
Continuity mistake: When Mickey pulls the blanket off K9 and turns him on to ask if he has anything to get them inside the locked school, K9's right side panel is missing, exposing the wires and circuitry inside him. When he turns up in the cafeteria to help the others escape the Krillitanes, the missing panel has suddenly appeared.
Continuity mistake: When Sarah Jane breaks into the school, she has her purse with her. However, after she runs out of the hall with the headmaster's office after hearing some unsettling noises, it disappears, as she no longer has it when she finds the TARDIS hidden in a storage room off the gym.
Continuity mistake: During the Doctor and Sarah Jane's conversation in the café while he's repairing K9, when Sarah mentions the events of "The Christmas Invasion" and the Doctor confirms that he was there, the Doctor's hold on a piece of wire from K9's insides changes between shots.
