  • Season 6 Episode 3: The Curse of the Black Spot

  • Although another pirate captain, Avery, is mentioned in the original series in The Smugglers, there is no indication that it is the same character who is seen here. Some of Avery's shipmates are mentioned in that episode, and none of the crew here have any of the same names.

  • Season 6 Episode 2: Day Of The Moon (2)

  • The Doctor said he wanted somewhere new. He wanted to go into space in 1969. But that's not new. In "Blink" the 10th Doctor and Martha were trapped in 1969 and Martha said they saw the moon landing three times.

  • It is never explained what happened in the previous episode with River and Rory in the Silence's lair.

  • Season 6 Episode 1: The Impossible Astronaut (1)

  • The streets of Jefferson, Adams, and Hamilton are located in Palmetto, FL in the county of Manatee. However, it is neither an industrial area nor a three-way junction as shown in the episode, but rather a residential neighborhood and a three-way intersection shared by Jefferson and Hamilton, with Adams being the street one block to the east of Jefferson.

  • The TARDIS becomes invisible for the first time since the original series and the story The Invasion, although on that occasion it was an accident caused by damage to the visual stabiliser. Here it is intentionally made invisible.

  • The Doctor tells a scared Canton "Brave heart". His fifth incarnation told this to his companion Tegan several times.

  • Season 5 Episode 13: The Big Bang (2)

  • After Amy's wedding reception, River asked the Doctor if he danced. Then she states that he always dances at weddings. However, this may only be true for the 11th Doctor and possibly his future generations. In The Runaway Bride at Donna's wedding reception, the 10th Doctor not only didn't dance he stood at the bar just looking around the room. Though Donna didn't get married, it was still a wedding reception and he had no interest in dancing.

  • For no apparent reason, the Doctor puts on a fez and takes hold of a mop. This appears to be a nod to the classic series episode "Silver Nemesis", where, while rifling through Queen Elizabeth II's treasure store, the then Doctor (Sylvester McCoy) suddenly pops out from behind a pillar wearing a fez, and holding a mop up in front of his face like a moustache.

  • Production Error; At the end of the episode when the Doctor enters the TARDIS, before the shot is cut away from, you can see people moving around and opening the TARDIS doors, yet in the next shot when Amy and Rory enter, the door was closed

  • When the Doctor travels back to important moments in Amy's life, he also talks to her within the setting of the episode Flesh and Stone. He is wearing his sack coat, which finally explains why he was suddenly wearing it in that scene when talking to Amy, even though he left it behind earlier and was not wearing it after that scene.

  • Both the date of the in-universe 'unidentified explosion' and the real-world date of broadcast are 26/06/2010.

  • Season 5 Episode 12: The Pandorica Opens (1)

  • When the Doctor is telling Amy his plan to visit Planet One, she is wearing red gloves. Her gloves disappear when she takes the Doctor's hand, and then reappear as they exit the TARDIS.

  • When the Pandorica opens and the Doctor says "The final phase. It's opening," the shot is flipped. In that shot, Matt Smith's hair falls on the left side of his face, when it normally falls on his right, while it falls on his right side just before and just after that shot.

  • When Vincent Van Gogh is shown, his left ear is intact. But by 1890, he had cut off the lower lobe.

  • Commander Strak's name is misspelled "Stark" in the closing credits.

  • Early in the episode, the Doctor and Amy read the message on the cliff face using the TARDIS' translation capabilities. However, in the episode, Time of the Angels, Amy wasn't able to read a similar message on the home box.

  • The message River leaves for the Doctor reads "HELLO SWEETIE ΘΣ Φ ΓΥΔϟ". ΘΣ (Theta Sigma) was the Doctor's nickname during his days in the Time Lord Academy, a fact previously stated in the original series stories The Armageddon Factor and The Happiness Patrol.

  • The appearance of a Uvodni (from The Sarah Jane Adventures story Warriors of Kudlak) and the Weevils and Blowfish (seen many times in Torchwood) marks the first time aliens from the spin-off shows feature in the main series.

  • Among the alien races that are approaching Stonehenge are "Chelonians". The Chelonian race premiered in the New Adventure "The Highest Science" and were also featured in the Missing Adventures novels "The Well-Mannered War" and "The Crystal Bucephalus".

  • Season 5 Episode 11: The Lodger

  • The Doctor fills a teapot with teabags to cure Craig. However, when he tips the teapot to Craig's mouth, only clear water comes out of the teapot.
