You are exploring the discontinuity index, a place where any details or rumours about unreleased stories are forbidden.
Please discuss only those whole stories which have already been released, and obey our spoiler policy.

This page is for discussing the ways in which Revolution of the Daleks doesn't fit well with other DWU narratives. You can also talk about the plot holes that render its own, internal narrative confusing.

Remember, this is a forum, so civil discussion is encouraged. However, please do not sign your posts. Also, keep all posts about the same continuity error under the same bullet point. You can add a new point by typing:

* This is point one.
::This is a counter-argument to point one.
:::This is a counter-argument to the counter-argument above
* This is point two.
::Explanation of point two.
::Further discussion and query of point two.

... and so on. 
  • There's a chance this may be more a production error but; when the Doctor notices Jack in the penn next to her, she runs over to him and clearly puts her hands on the electrified bars without being zapped.
  • How did no one on Earth seem to have heard of a Dalek, even though the Earth was invaded by the Daleks in The Stolen Earth (TV story)?
    • Those events were erased when the universe reset in The Big Bang (TV story).
      • They were erased by the cracks in time, but the purpose of the universe being reset was to restore everything they erased, like Amy's parents for example. The Dalek invasions would have been restored. It seems like a poor excuse for bad continuity.
        • No companion since Series 5 has recognised the Daleks however. So it appears whilst logically it should have restored by Big Bang 2, the Dalek invasion just wasn’t. SherlockTheII 15:53, 2 January 2021 (UTC)
          • Real life explanation: Bad continuity, in universe explanation? Possibly world governments covering up events, mass drugging (retcon) or the stupidity of the human race.
Take it up at the episode's respective discontinuity page; not here because this is solely for the Revolution story.
  • The Daleks demand the intruders to identify, and Jack does so, implying they do not know who he is. However, he already did so in Journey's End (TV story). Granted, they do not directly ask him to identify, so he could be taking the chance to make a one-liner--Editoronthewiki 15:44, 2 January 2021 (UTC)
    • All the Daleks that encountered Jack in the past were destroyed, so it’s not unreasonable to assume he’s just not in their records. Plus as you say it’s not necessarily aimed at him specifically. SherlockTheII 15:53, 2 January 2021 (UTC)
  • I thought the whole point of a TARDIS chameleon circuit was to make a TARDIS blend in wherever it lands and typically turn into something that nobody would notice. So why would the spare TARDIS the Fam returned to Earth in turn into something as inconspicuous as a whole detached house, in the middle of a housing estate with residents who are bound to notice its sudden appearance and disappearance?
    • Remember "Boom Town"? Mickey asks the same question about the TARDIS. "Ricky, people see a blue police box smackdab in the middle o Cardiff.... And they walk by."
      • That’s a small police box in the middle of a busy street that your average person would probably only walk down every once in a while. This is a great big house occupying a big, empty (presumably) open space that at least a few local people would probably see through their window every day.
