The End - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: In George's memorial service, the extras are totally different in the shots from George's point of view to the shots from the back of the room. Look for the woman with brunette hair and orange overalls - she's there in the forward shots but missing in the reverses. The chairs, tables, props, costumes and character placements are all completely discontinuous.

The Inquisitor - S5-E2

Visible crew/equipment: When Rimmer is being questioned by the Inquisitor, a full boom mic and arm can be seen rising out of shot by the three candles on the right of the screen.

Dwarf

The End - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When Lister and Rimmer see Cat just after Holly explains how he evolved, Rimmer runs at Cat screaming before he passes through him and we hear a crash off screen to indicate Rimmer has just run in to something. He is a hologram and is not solid, so no sound should be heard. [The original version did not have this mistake. The sound effect was added for the now defunct Remastered series.]

The End - S1-E1

Visible crew/equipment: In the first episode, 'The End' when Lister is telling his door to lock so he can get his cat out you can see the hand of a member of the crew pushing the door shut (look out the window).

Back in the Red (3) - S8-E3

Revealing mistake: The first time you see Lister, the Cat, Kochanski and Kryten in the AR machine you can see the cat opening his eyes realising that it is not in the script, smiling and then closing his eyes.

The End - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: At the start of the 'Welcome Back George McIntyre' reception scene, Lister, Chen and Selby are throwing things at Rimmer, then Rimmer looks around. In the next shot, Lister and Chen are looking round to their left, Selby is stabbing between his fingers, Rimmer is now looking straight forwards and Petersen has appeared from nowhere.

Dwarf

Emohawk - Polymorph II - S6-E4

Revealing mistake: When the grenade explodes, the explosion is to the left of where the grenade landed.

Dwarf

Polymorph - S3-E3

Plot hole: Right after the shrinking boxers scene, Kryten says the small boxers are missing from the bunk, but you can see them right in front of him.

Parallel Universe - S2-E6

Visible crew/equipment: A wire/string pulling along the baby Skutters behind the parent Skutter is visible in the episode

The End - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When George McIntye finishes his speech, he is standing. When the camera cuts back, he is sitting down.

Dwarf

Beyond a Joke - S7-E6

Continuity mistake: When Able takes his head off and throws it at the simulant, he throws it forwards towards where Lister is standing. The head manages instead, somehow, to hit the simulant standing next to the gelf on Able's left.

Dwarf

Backwards - S3-E1

Plot hole: In the episode 'Backwards' most of the things that happen on 'Backwards Earth' are correct, except, of course, in reverse. But there is an exception: in the scene in the Cafe, when the waitress comes to 'dirty' the table, she tips a box of trash on the table. If you play this scene backwards, the trash leaps from the table into the box. Even on a 'backwards earth' I can't believe that trash spontaneously leaps about...

Confidence and Paranoia - S1-E5

Visible crew/equipment: When Rimmer says there was nothing wrong with his casual clothes, a boom mic shadow can be seen moving at the top of the screen.

Dwarf

Pete (2) - S8-E7

Continuity mistake: When Kryten is looking for Archie under the bed, he bends down quite low to search. In the next shot he is on his knees but his head is much higher than before.

Dwarf

Stasis Leak - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: The second time we see the scene with Rimmer's head popping through the table, the line 'There, that wasn't too bad, was it?' is missed out.

Dwarf

Stasis Leak - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: When the crew go through the stasis leak for the first time, the Cat walks through, then Rimmer waits before jumping through. When they appear on the other side, they fade in together.

Dwarf

Me2 - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: When Lister and the Cat are talking to the original Rimmer in the cinema, the new Rimmer enters and argues with the original. The original Rimmer makes hand puppets, while the new Rimmer sits at the front. When Lister does the ippy-dippy, the Rimmers have swapped places. The new Rimmer says that he was there first, without complaint from the original.

Dwarf

The End - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: Half way through the episode, the captain's office becomes covered by a wall.

Dwarf

Waiting For God - S1-E4

Revealing mistake: When the cat priest dies on the bed, watch him move his foot so Lister can sit on the edge.

Timeslides - S3-E5

Continuity mistake: Kryten needs to ask what a pub is, yet in the episode "Backwards" he and Rimmer worked in one for three weeks as the comedy act "The Sensational Reverse Brothers", and, later, were involved in a brawl in the same pub. Originally, the episodes were to be shown in a different order, which explains why the mistake occurs, but doesn't excuse it.
