After the TARDIS split apart, Zoe's arm on the console (I'm guessing ti was clay or something) was all bendy and out of shape

Zoe's clothes change between scenes from a dress type thing to a catsuit

Do you mean in the first episode? Jamie said they needed to change, so I guess we're to assume Zoe changed.

Oh right, I might have missed that part. I only noticed because I was wondering why her dress was so dirty and then all of a sudden she was in the catsuit

This could be my own mistake, but I am pretty sure that when the Doctor is putting the Jamie Jigsaw together for the first time and ends up with Jamie II, I'm sure that none of the pieces are of Fraser Hines' face, so technically the Docor would never have been able to get the real Jamie anyway

No, I thought of that too. Its a bit tricky to tell because its all spliced up, but it definately didn't look like any of the parts matched his features

A few errors I noted:

1) Technically, Cyrano and Blackbeard are both historical figures, not fictional characters.  I suppose you could stretch a point to argue they've had stories written about them.

2) "The Medusa" is wrong.  Medusa was the personal name of one of the three gorgons, along with Stheino and Euryale.

3) The Master claiming that writing half a million words over 25 years is "some kind of a record" is a bit absurd.  To put it into perspective, that's equivalent to four decent-length novels.  The actual record-holder is Charles Hamilton, who wrote for the same kind of boys magazines as the Master (his best-known character is Billy Bunter).  He's been estimated to have written about 100 million words, although that's over a longer period.

Although 'The Medusa' is technically wrong, it is common for her to be called that, even in many text books.

I'm not sure what level of text books would do that - as a classics scholar, I've never come across it in any decent ones.  I have come across it in popular use, and it makes me  Angry every time.

As the Doctor and Co. enter the house which leads to the maze, the creaking sound actually stops mid-way through and then re-starts later. As a result, the door is shut for at least 4 seconds before the creaks stops.
