Red Dwarf

Marooned - S3-E2

New this month 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.

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?
