Continuity mistake: At the end of the episode, Donna piles suitcases in the Doctor's arms in preparation to leave with him in the TARDIS, and places a striped hat box on top. 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.
Deliberate mistake: When the Doctor visits all his recent companions before he dies, he goes to a book signing of "The Journal of Impossible Things" written by Joan Redfern's great grandchild. When she is signing the book for the Doctor, you can hear the scratching effect from the pen but you can clearly see that the pen isn't touching the paper.

Plot hole: Near the end of the episode, the part-human Doctor is said to have all of the memories of the original Doctor. If this is true, then the part-human Doctor should remember the time the original Doctor spent with Rose, so shouldn't commit genocide or need Rose to help him to not be a man of killing.
Other mistake: The security guards shoot away the lock on the door, which they then kick down with no real effort. But the door would still be held in place by the hinges - they don't kick it with enough force to rip the hinges out, and even if they had, we can see that there's no damage on the hinge side of the door anyway to demonstrate their forcible removal.
Continuity mistake: After the girl is killed, we see her communicator as her "ghost" slowly fades. In one shot we see from a slight distance the lights left lit tick down to 3, then a short while passes, we cut back and the lights are back to 4. They then tick down to 3 again.

Other mistake: When Miss Hartigan is testing the earpod control, the men start off facing her. She instructs them to turn to the right. They turn 90 degrees clockwise. She then tells them to turn to the left. They turn 180 degrees anticlockwise. However, they should have only turned 90 degrees anticlockwise, and end up facing her again. What they actually do is turn on the spot, as opposed to turning left. It takes a further instruction from Miss Hartigan for them to face her again.
Continuity mistake: Near the end of "Silence in the Libary," a sweeping shot shows that they're standing between two freestanding bookshelves. But at the beginning of this one, when they're supposed to be in the same place, they're able to break through a wall into a separate room.
Plot hole: Davros said that the reality bomb would destroy all parallel universes. He fails in the Doctor's universe, but the Doctor said in an earlier episode that every decision creates a new parallel universe, like if Donna had walked out of the TARDIS with Jack, Rose, and the Doctor. She wouldn't have imbued herself with Time Lordness, so Davros would have succeeded. This means that all the universes, including the Doctor's one, should have been destroyed, because if the Reality bomb only succeeds in one universe, it would destroy all the others as well.
Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the episode, the police are chasing the bus and they give the numberplate as starting with 'Whiskey zero four seven' (Or something similar). That is W047, yet later on when the flying bus comes through the rift in time/space, the numberplate is completely different. This is because whilst filming in Dubai, the original bus broke down and had to be replaced.
Continuity mistake: In the scene toward the end where the Doctor is shot by the Dalek, when the camera is shooting from Rose's point of view, the Doctor is gasping and struggling for breath. However when the camera shows the Doctor from behind, he's lying completely still in Rose's arms. The camera cuts back to Rose's POV and he's struggling again, with no time in between for the change in his movements.
Other mistake: Martha falls into the bog and Hath Peck rushes down to help her. She calls out "Help me, Peck!" but the subtitles read "Help me peg!" This is just one of many errors in this series' subtitles, which seem to have been added by listening to the dialogue without reference to the script.
Plot hole: Since in this episode the Doctor is assumed to have died some time after the Runaway Bride but not before Voyage of the Damned, he was not able to prevent the spaceship Titanic from crashing in London. It is later shown that the south east was obliterated from the explosion. This falls far short of what the Doctor mentioned in Voyage of the Damned wherein he frantically repeated that if the Titanic crashed, the core would annihilate 6 billion people on the planet (that's the entire human race at the time of the show's airing).
Plot hole: In the episode, because the Doctor was not around as he was killed in the alternate reality, all the present day invasions that he stopped in the normal reality happened. However, since his death was before many invasions in later seasons in the normal reality that were chronologically before his death (for example, The Carrionite invasion in 1599) the Earth should be already destroyed. Therefore, he couldn't die on Earth, so it would be a paradox that would erase his timeline.
Visible crew/equipment: While the Doctor tries to get into the data core (after Proper Dave tried) it cuts to the telephone still ringing, and when the young girl asks her dad why he's not answering the phone, just as he tells her that the phone is not ringing the boom mic dips into view at the top of the screen.
Revealing mistake: In the beginning, the ATMOS system takes the car to the Thames, then runs it into the river. At first, the car runs forward normally. After the angle change, there's a huge white cloud of mist behind the car that dissipates quickly, meaning an air cannon of a sort was used to propel the car into the river.

Plot hole: The intro scene shows the thief hanging from the skylight trying to steal a gem. She escapes where she came in and yet the next scene shows her walking inside the museum. This scene doesn't make sense because she already had an effortless exit on the rooftop.
Other mistake: Near the start, the Doctor and companion, just after having experienced a violent earthquake within the city of ancient Pompeii, discover someone sold the Tardis after fleeing toward where they parked it and it was gone. But where it had stood there is a floor to ceiling shelf of clay pots, very aligned, unshaken, unmoved from the shelves.

Continuity mistake: After the Master changes all humans into copies of himself and Wilf says, "What have you done, you monster!?", it goes to all the different masters in the room saying, "Are you talking to me?" The Abigail Naysmith-Master is shorter than the Joshua Naysmith-Master. In another shot they are the same height. The Abigail Naysmith-Master is wearing very high heels and should be taller than the other Masters.
