Audio/visual unsynchronised 

At Grace's apartment the Doctor says, "Don't you see, I have Thirteen lives", as has been said earlier already. However, this is Post-Sync/ADR and his lip movements suggest that he originally said "Twelve lives".

Character error 

When Grace chases Chang Lee down the hallway, she screams for someone to stop him. A security guard can be seen walking out of a room, but just ignores what's going on, rather than pursuing the fleeing young man.

Continuity 

Despite losing all of the possessions that were on his person after being checked into the hospital, The Doctor still produces his trademark bag of jelly babies twice. Where did they come from?

When the morgue attendant first hears the banging coming from the morgue, he mutes the film he is watching. When the Doctor approaches the TV the sound has come back on.

When the Master and Chang Lee are examining the Eye of Harmony, in some shots the pit that holds the Eye contains lots of dead leaves but in others it is completely empty.

Factual errors 

The entire ambulance/hospital sequence is a symphony of errors: A bystander would not be permitted to ride in the back of the ambulance, nor would his (or anybody's) consent be required to provide care to an unconscious patient with life-threatening injuries. Nobody was performing the routine care and monitoring that medics would have performed. An external EKG, and not an internal probe, would be used to assess the heart's electrical activity. The Doctor was not intubated, as he would have been for surgery. The cardiologist would have doffed her gown and put scrubs on over her underwear in the locker room, then scrubbed for surgery, rather than scrubbing first then being stuffed into scrubs over a ball gown.

Miscellaneous 

At the start of the movie, when the Seventh Doctor seals the Masters remains shut with the sonic screwdriver, the head of the screwdriver is slightly out of focus. This is explained in a recent (2005) interview by Sylvester McCoy; he was holding it the wrong way around!

Plot holes 

If Chang Lee's goal in accompanying The Doctor to the hospital and staying with him overnight was to steal his possessions, why didn't he just pick The Doctor's pockets when he was lying unconscious in the alley?

Revealing mistakes 

In the scene where The Doctor and his companion arrive back at the TARDIS and a police motorbike with a man astride it drives in through the TARDIS doors the base of the TARDIS that causes a rim on the door clearly vanishes leaving no change or gap between the TARDIS floor and the pavement outside.
