Added DiffLines:

* EnforcedMethodActing: According to interviews given by Creator/JennaColeman, when they filmed Clara's death scene, she had not yet been made aware of how her character arc was going to be resolved at the end of the season.

Added DiffLines:

* CaliforniaDoubling: The episode is supposed to be set in London, but features many noticeable Cardiff locations that give away the fact that Cardiff is doubling for the capital. While this is not unusual for ''Doctor Who'', it is particularly glaring in this episode, especially as one scene was filmed in front of a well-known Cardiff monument.


Added DiffLines:



* ThrowItIn: Arguably the episode's most touching moment - Clara stroking the Doctor's face and him then kissing her hand - was not scripted, but added by the actors.

This scene, for some reason, is not included in the DVD release, however several other sequences are, including a joking reference to Creator/DerrenBrown possibly being an alien, and a grief-stricken Rigsy reuniting with his wife after Clara's death.

* MoodWhiplash: An out-of-show example (which is why it's in Trivia). "Face the Raven" concluded with arguably one of the most gut-wrenching sequences in modern Doctor Who history. Within a very short time after broadcast, the BBC released an [[HilariousOuttakes hilarious outtake]] from Clara's death scene. It was a welcome laugh for fans.

** According to the published script a scene was cut that would have suggested that magician Creator/DerrenBrown was an alien and the Doctor didn't like him to the point of banning his name from being mentioned around him. It's possible this scene was shot because the final episode shows Clara reacting to something from the scene in question (her unexplained puzzled look when the Doctor asks her to get his "most annoying stuff" from the TARDIS).
