Back in the Red (3) - S8-E3

Revealing mistake: The first time you see Lister, the Cat, Kochanski and Kryten in the AR machine you can see the cat opening his eyes realising that it is not in the script, smiling and then closing his eyes.

Back in the Red (3) - S8-E3

Continuity mistake: When the crew are plasticine in the screensaver, the Cat slides into the igloo. From one shot he is sliding towards the igloo from an angle, but in the next shot he is heading straight for the igloo.

Back in the Red (3) - S8-E3

Continuity mistake: During the Cat's dance, he taps his feet and tilts his head back, which Blue Midget copies. In the next shot Blue Midget is looking downwards and then proceeds to do the same dance it just did in the previous shot.

Back in the Red (3) - S8-E3

Continuity mistake: When The Cat does his dance with Blue Midget, he stands behind one of the legs of Blue Midget and changes his clothes. The old clothes he throws on the ground when changing disappear in the wide shot of the landing area.

Back in the Red (3) - S8-E3

Revealing mistake: After the Cat's dance, Lister says 'we are outta here' and pulls the level, at which point the crew all fall back as if Blue Midget had rushed forwards. However, in the model shot of the ship it shows it scraping its foot on the floor before it runs forwards, meaning the crew should not have fallen back in their seats.

Back in the Red (3) - S8-E3

Continuity mistake: During the Cat's dance scene with Blue Midget, we see one shot of Blue Midget doing the air guitar move, but in the next shot, his arms are not visible at all. It changes between these two differing shots throughout the closing end of the dance routine.

Back in the Red (3) - S8-E3

Revealing mistake: Just before the Cat starts his dance, Kochanski is at the back of the cockpit of Blue Midget and is bouncing up and down, yet the ship is not moving. When it starts moving, Kochanski is sitting still.
