Thanks For The Memory - S2-E3

Continuity mistake: When Rimmer falls asleep whilst Lister is doing the jigsaw, there is a whisky bottle on the table. Later in the episode, when being viewed on the black box, the whiskey bottle is no longer on the table. Lister could not have thrown it away since he left the table to the Hologram Simulation Suite at The End of the scene. (00:10:20 - 00:19:35)

Stoke Me A Clipper - S7-E2

Continuity mistake: When the Nazi commander throws the crocodile at Ace, the yellow curtain is behind ace as he falls. In the next shot, the yellow curtain is in front of him. It is clear he did not fall through the curtain as it does not move as he hits the floor. (00:01:00)

Dwarf

Legion - S6-E2

Continuity mistake: When Legion brings the feast, Kryten is stood by the door. Rimmer says about how he appreciates art, then in the next shot of the Cat, Kryten walks behind him. Kryten would have had to walk past Rimmer in the previous shot to get there yet we did not see him while Rimmer was talking. (00:13:15)

Dwarf

Krytie TV - S8-E5

Continuity mistake: After Kochanski finds out about shower night and chases Kryten out of the room, she doesn't actually walk out the door, yet in the next shot she walks back into the room from outside. (00:16:25)

Back To Reality - S5-E6

Factual error: While it is true that lithium carbonate can be used to treat depression and other psychiatric disorders, it cannot be administered in gaseous form. It is a very stable salt and only starts to form vapour at 1,310 degress Celcius. Spraying it about as a 'mood stabliser' at that temperature, as Kryten does, is going to kill everyone on the spot.

Kryten - S2-E1

Question: When Holly is saying about how he has changed music he says that because of the 2 new notes he's made instruments would be bigger. "Triangles will have four sides. Piano keyboards the length of zebra crossings. Course, women will have to be banned from playing the cello." I don't understand the joke about the cello part. Could someone please tell me what he means?

Answer: The cello is a large four-stringed instrument, which, when it is played, stands vertically on the floor between the player's legs (assuming they are seated). If it is to grow as large as the other instuments mentioned will, it would require a rather unseemly lack of femininity to be able to encompass it with the legs.
