Audio problem: Anthony Hopkins is in his car with Cogman, discussing Pangea the super continent over the phone with John Turturro. There are two instances in this scene in which Anthony Hopkins' voice has been dubbed over by a different actor that does not sound like him. Anthony Hopkins first says "That's Pangea. The super continent." The scene then flashes back to the round table and the dubbed voice attempting to sound like Hopkins says "It's the same shape on the round table." The dubbed voice is heard again when he says "Genius", before reverting back to Anthony Hopkins immediately after when he says "Stonehenge."

Continuity mistake: When Anthony Hopkins is talking with the Prime Minister, he takes out a clock Autobot which he threatens to use on the guards. He is still holding the clock Autobot in his hands when he turns back to talk with the Prime Minister, but in the next shot, it has suddenly disappeared from his hand.
Continuity mistake: When the group are about to open the door with the heat seeking missiles inside and the Polymorph sneaks up behind them, Lister is standing at the front of the group, Cat and Kryten are behind Lister and Rimmer is standing at the back, behind all three. In the next shot, as the missiles exit the door, Rimmer is now suddenly standing front of Cat. (00:24:40)
Other mistake: When Lister inadvertently sets off the Auto Destruct sequence, the computer voice says the ship will detonate in 15 minutes. The computer then says "the ship will detonate" every five seconds followed by how much time until detonation, but the time in which the computer says this is inconsistent. Two seconds after the computer says 15 minutes, the computer says the ship will detonate in 14 minutes 55 seconds. Ten seconds after saying that, the computer says the ship will detonate in 14 minutes 50 seconds. (00:01:50)
Revealing mistake: When Rimmer is piloting Starbug in Lister's body, there is a shot of Starbug spinning in circles. This is a shot that was taken from S3 E2 Marooned, of Starbug crashing after colliding with the asteroid. The only difference is the planet in the background has been changed. (00:22:10)
Continuity mistake: When Lister (in Rimmer's body), Cat and Kryten are chasing Rimmer in Blue Midget, the exterior shot shows all three sitting in one row. From the interior, Cat is sitting in front of Lister and Kryten, and Lister and Kryten are sitting behind Cat. (00:22:40)
Continuity mistake: When Kryten notices the photo of the bike in the countryside is moving, the peg attached to it is near the middle, along the top, but in the shot from behind, the peg is much closer to the right. The same goes for the photo of Kryten's birthday party. (00:03:30)
Revealing mistake: During the chase on the moon, there is a shot from in front of Starbug crashing into an asteroid. About twenty seconds after this, the exact same shot of Starbug crashing into an asteroid is been repeated a second time, when the ship crashes. (00:23:20)
Continuity mistake: When the Polymorph is switching between various appearances at the start, it stops at a rabbit. When the Polymorph stops at the rabbit, there is a damp stain beside the two yellow lines on the floor. This damp stain was not there when the Polymorph was switching between other forms. The stain just suddenly appears out of nowhere. (00:01:45)
Audio problem: When Kryten starts looking over Lister's bunk trying to find the Polymorph, posing as the boxers, the boxers, and therefore the Polymorph, are visible on the bunk. The sound of the Polymorph transforming is heard, indicating the Polymorph has changed form, but the boxers remain there, without any transformation. It is not until a few shots after that the Polymorph has appeared to have changed form. (00:10:00)
Continuity mistake: After Starbug and Blue Midget leave Red Dwarf, there is a shot of Blue Midget driving away from the ship, towards the camera. Cat and Kryten are the only two on board as Rimmer and Lister are on Starbug, but there are three people shown inside Blue Midget. This is because the shot was taken from series two, in which Rimmer, Lister and Cat were inside it. (00:03:25)
