The story is quite specific about big events that would have changed had the Doctor not been there, and obviously they weren't going to add all of them in, but surely one they missed a trick on was the Daleks showing up in S3. If the Doctor hadn't been there then surely they'd have just wiped the Earth out.

In Voyage of the Damned the Doctor says that if the ship crashed into Earth it would wipe out the entire planet, but when it does so in this story it's mainly Southern England that gets affected.

Maybe ^^ that one is a blooper for the VOTD story.

That's an interesting one - probably fits for both stories in a way. We only know he was wrong about it in VOTD because it actually happened in this story.

When Donna is sitting in the car deciding to Turn Left, it switches between raining and not raining on the different camera angles.

When Donna gets into the car in the flashback she gets into the back, but when it goes to closeup she's getting in the front.

Maybe they weren't bothered about invading because Earth was now a Pyrovile planet? That's as far back as I can think in terms of Tenth Doctor invasions of Earth.

The Pyroviles would have been fighting it out with the Carrionites for control, so the Daleks might have seen their opportunity  Cool

Donna appears out of thin air in the middle of London wired up with things strapped to her chest, looking a lot like a suicide bomber, and nobody batters an eyelid. If I saw something like that I'd run for my life.
