Other than vomit containing stomach acid (so they should have disintegrated) and an object moving forward in space due to inertia (so they could have released the whale) it all hung together nicely:)

I did figure the Queen out, but I loved the character all the more for the 'i rule' line.

For the vomit, I suppose it depends on how acidic it is, e.g. it might be intended to dissolve things over several days. So, you probably wouldn't want to go swimming in it, but I'll accept that a brief exposure wasn't too bad. On the other hand, it may not have been the best idea to open their mouths while facing the flood. ("Aaargh!")

As for releasing the whale, I think the Doctor said that the spaceship would disintegrate and everyone would die. So, that suggests that the whale's "cage" was attached to the foundations of all the buildings. Not the smartest design :)
