Red Dwarf

Bodyswap - S3-E4

Other mistake: When Lister (in Rimmer's body) pleads the Cat to lend him his body, he says "how else can I pilot White Midget?" In the next scene, the Blue Midget is being piloted, and White Midget was originally abandoned for Starbug. (This mistake was admitted by the crew). (00:21:45)

Bodyswap - S3-E4

Revealing mistake: When Kryten takes the syringe out of Lister's head, the needle doesn't come out of the syringe properly, so Kryten puts his hand in front of the needle to try and hide the mistake. (00:05:25)

Revealing mistake: Starbug and Blue Midget wobble on a number of occasions during the chase. (00:23:25)

Dwarf

Bodyswap - S3-E4

Revealing mistake: During the Scrabble game, Lister (in Rimmer's body) jumps out of his seat and you can hear the chair scrape across the floor. As Lister is a hologram, he should not have been able to move the chair. (00:14:45)

Continuity mistake: When Rimmer (in Lister's body) is looking at the magazine in the Jacuzzi, the magazine moves from water level to much higher in the next shot. (00:13:55)

Suggested correction: When the exterior shot of Blue Midget is shown, it is not very easy to tell the crew apart. They appear blurred, so it is impossible to determine who is sitting in which place.

Bodyswap - S3-E4

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 Rimmer, in Lister's body, is driving Starbug through the moon, the others are following in Blue Midget. One shot shows Blue Midget directly behind Starbug, but another shot shows Blue Midget much further to the right. (00:23:10)

Bodyswap - S3-E4

Revealing mistake: During the chase on the moon, there is a shot from in front of Starbug crashing into an asteroid. About 20s after, the exact same shot of Starbug crashing into an asteroid is been repeated a second time, when the ship crashes. (00:23:20)

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)

Casual Person

Other mistake: When the group are discussing if they can override the Auto Destruct, the computer voice says 8 minutes 20 seconds until detonation. About 20 seconds after saying this, the computer voice then says 8 minutes 10 seconds until detonation. (00:02:35)
