Red Dwarf

Me2 - S1-E6

Corrected entry: In the cinema scene, one Rimmer makes hand shadows to annoy the other. This is impossible, as Rimmer is made of light and, therefore, wouldn't cast a shadow.

Correction: Rimmer isn't transparent, ergo, light does not pass through him. If light doesn't pass through him, he'll cast a shadow.

Me2 - S1-E6

Corrected entry: There is a contradiction of when the radiation leak that wiped out the crew took place. In the episode "Stasis Leak" Lister says it was three weeks after 2nd March. However in the episode "Me Squared", Lister says it was six months after Gazpacho Soup Day, which was the 25th November.

Correction: The calendar has been shifted around a bit since the present day to accomidate the month of Geldof and a space-faring society.

Captain Defenestrator

Me2 - S1-E6

Corrected entry: In the episode 'Me2', when Lister is taking the painting to the room belonging to the two Rimmers, he stops outside the door, and says 'Second Technician Arnold J Rimmer and Second Technician Arnold J Rimmer'. He then presses the pad to open the door. Watch carefully, as the door opens before he touches the pad.

Correction: Neither Rimmer would be able to touch the pad, so it could be light-sensitive so the Rimmers don't have to walk through the door.

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.

Rimmer: The thing about Captain Oates... The thing you have to remember about Captain Oates... Captain Oates... Captain Oates was a prat.

Answer: Presumably he does, but it's never been used in any material related to the show. He is the only Cat left (as shown in Series 1), so even if he had once had a name, nobody would know it.

Answer: In the book, the Cat finds the concept of a name confusing, as he's convinced he's the center of the universe and the idea that someone wouldn't know who he was is baffling.
