Red Dwarf

Red Dwarf (1988)

1 corrected entry in D.N.A.

D.N.A. - S4-E2

Corrected entry: In the episode "D.N.A.", Lister tells Kryten he is an "enlightened 23rd Century guy", but if the clock in the episode 'Stasis Leak' is anything to go by, Lister was in fact born in the 21st Century. [If you accept that Lister is 25, then the year 2077 minus 25 means he was born in or about 2052]. The DNA Modifier is also incorrect in this episode by saying that Lister's species is "male, 23rd century human". This totally contradicts the entire premise of the episode 'Ouroboros' which shows the infant Lister being abandoned in The Aigburth Arms, Liverpool, in November 2155 (=22nd Century).

Correction: Lister is speaking of his easy acceptance of the times in which he lives. People born in the forties were 'Swinging Sixties' types, and I'm a 'Twenty-First Century Guy' despite being born in the last century. It's a method of expression, not mathematics.

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?
