Red Dwarf
Red Dwarf mistake picture

Backwards - S3-E1

Other mistake: At the start of the episode, there is a spoof Star Wars-type caption, which spools up the screen very quickly. Too quickly to be read, in fact... which may explain why few people have noticed that the last line of the caption, "And now the Saga Continuums...", is written twice.

Marooned - S3-E2

Other mistake: When the meteor hits Starbug, there are no stars outside the front of the ship at all.

Psirens - S6-E1

Other mistake: Kryten places Rimmer's light bee on the floor, then begins the process of reinitialising him. As the process finishes and Rimmer looks at Lister (who looks away), the light bee, which should be hovering within his torso projecting his image, is still visible on the floor between his feet.

Waiting For God - S1-E4

Other mistake: In the picture of the cat wars between the Red Hats and the Blue Hats, the hats are orange instead of blue.



Only The Good... - S8-E8

Other mistake: When Rimmer tries to silence the vending machine, he covers up the input microphone with stickers instead of covering the speaker just above it.



The End - S1-E1

Other mistake: At the start of Rimmer's exam, the invigilator orders the students to "turn over their papers and start". Rimmer reads one side of the paper, then turns it over to read another question. The back of the paper should have been blank as otherwise there would be no point asking the students to keep the papers face down before reading the questions.

Legion - S6-E2

Other mistake: When Rimmer extracts his own light bee, it disappears with him.



Me2 - S1-E6

Other mistake: When Lister reads Rimmer's diary, he reads the first entry, then his aunt's birthday in July and then the entry for Gazpacho Soup Day in November. Each time he looks for the next entry he flicks though the pages, yet every time he reads, it is from the start of the diary.



Better Than Life - S2-E2

Other mistake: The tax letter and Rimmer's mother's letter are both already opened before Lister takes the letters out. As there is no one else aboard Red Dwarf, the letters would not have been checked by anyone so they should still be sealed. Also, not all of the letters are already open, just the two that Rimmer receives.

Dimension Jump - S4-E5

Other mistake: Kryten sees Ace's ship before it materialises.



Backwards - S3-E1

Other mistake: In the bar when Rimmer and Kryten are on stage, Kryten eats a boiled egg then drinks a glass of water, yet he cannot eat or drink because he is a mechanoid.

Balance of Power - S1-E3

Other mistake: Rimmer's badge of rank is missing from his short sleeved uniform. All other uniforms in the series have the badge.



Justice - S4-E3

Other mistake: Rimmer's long-service medals are absent from his ceremonial uniform during the trial. 17.15.



Fathers & Suns - S10-E2

Other mistake: An option for the new computer is breast size. A meaningless addition, since the computer is just a head.


Casual Person

Future Echoes - S1-E2

Other mistake: When Rimmer is doing Lister's memo, there are no stars visible outside the window. Then a star suddenly appears out of nowhere.


Casual Person

Future Echoes - S1-E2

Other mistake: When the Cat says there better be no dogs on the ship, there are no stars visible out the window.

Lister: Get real, man. Most eunuchs have got more balls than you.



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?



The actor who plays the original Kryten, in 'Kryten', also turns up later as the voice of Talkie Toaster.
