Red Dwarf

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 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

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.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: The time that the events involving the crew of Red Dwarf keeps changing throughout the series. At various times, references are made to the date, which is stated as being in the 21st, 22nd or 23rd centuries. Examples: In 'Stasis Leak', the date reference is stated as being 2077 (21st century). But in 'Ouroboros', the date is stated as being 26th November 2155 (22nd century). Also in 'DNA', Lister says he is an enlightened 23rd century guy.

Mistakes

Kryten tells everyone that the matter paddle transmits matter in digital form from one place to another at the speed of light - he is very clear on this point. He then locates Waxworld, which is 200,000 light years away. Okay - so when they use the matter paddle to transmit themselves to Waxworld, why doesn't it take them 200,000 years to get there?

Trivia

The actor who plays the original Kryten, in 'Kryten', also turns up later as the voice of Talkie Toaster.
