Red Dwarf

Beyond a Joke - S7-E6

Continuity mistake: When the simulant drinks his drink, he lifts the cup up to drink, yet in the next shot he lifts the cup up again, repeating the same action twice between shots. (00:13:50)

Dwarf

Beyond a Joke - S7-E6

Continuity mistake: When the simulant walks past Lister, the Cat and Kochanski who are hiding under the blanket, he walks to the far right of the shot and a piece of material is hanging from him as he stops. The shot changes to show the simulant walking through the doorway, yet when the camera cuts back to Lister, the Cat and Kochanski, the piece of material is still in the corner of the screen meaning the simulant is still stood there. (00:11:20)

Dwarf

Beyond a Joke - S7-E6

Continuity mistake: When Able takes his head off and throws it at the simulant, he throws it forwards towards where Lister is standing. The head manages instead, somehow, to hit the simulant standing next to the gelf on Able's left. (00:20:00)

Dwarf

Beyond a Joke - S7-E6

Continuity mistake: After the Cat says about mooning out of the windows when Starbug gets hit, Kochanski falls back on her chair with her arms outstretched. In the next shot she is holding onto the monitor again. (00:25:00)

Dwarf

M-Corp - S12-E5

Other mistake: When Cat picks up the can of Leopard lager which is invisible to Lister, he shakes it, pops the cap and sprays Lister with foam. The foam is visible but the can remains invisible, and that makes no sense. If we are seeing the scene from Cat's point of view the can and foam should both be visible, and if it is from Lister's then neither should be.

Lister: What, they fixed your core program and then decided they'd be better off without you?
Holly: Yeah, it was shortly after they met me.

Meltdown - S4-E6

Trivia: "Meltdown" was originally planned to be the first episode of Series IV of Red Dwarf. However, the militaristic tone of this episode - and in particular Dave Lister's strident anti-war speech near The End of the episode - meant it fell foul of the BBC censors. The original planned transmission date (Feb 14 1991) coincided with the outbreak of "Operation Desert Storm" - the Gulf War...and the BBC felt that an "anti-war" episode of Red Dwarf would be inappropriate for a country at war with Iraq.

More trivia for Red Dwarf

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.
