Red Dwarf

Stasis Leak - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: The second time we see the scene with Rimmer's head popping through the table, the line 'There, that wasn't too bad, was it?' is missed out. (00:04:40 - 00:19:20)

Stasis Leak - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: The second time we see the hologramatic Rimmer pass Rimmer and Lister in the corridor, two other people have appeared walking past. (00:04:00 - 00:18:25)

Stasis Leak - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: When Rimmer puts his head through the table, the magazines change position next to his head. (00:18:55)

Dwarf

White Hole - S4-E4

Continuity mistake: When the Cat and Lister are trying to cook an egg with a bicycle powered hair drier, you can see the Cat holding a frying pan. When Lister gives up and gets off the bike, Cat picks up a spatula with his other hand and starts poking the egg with it. However, in the next shot, he is shown with both hands on his hips. It's an instant cut with the same conversation continuing, so he didn't have time to put them down. (00:15:25)

Demons & Angels - S5-E5

Revealing mistake: The pyrotechnic charges are visible under the 'High' Cat and Kryten's robes, before they are shot. There is also a wire trailing behind Kryten and running up his left leg, presumably a means of detonating the charges. (00:12:45)

Gunmen of the Apocalypse - S6-E3

Visible crew/equipment: When the simulant has beamed on board Starbug, Lister and The Cat get up slowly from the table. Look closely, and you can see the shadow of a boom mic cast on Lister and The Cat. (00:07:50)

Padzter

Demons & Angels - S5-E5

Character mistake: After the crew realise that the matter paddle has made 2 copies of Red Dwarf, Kryten says something along the lines of, "When I threw the machine in reverse...", but it wasn't actually him who threw the machine in reverse, it was Lister. (00:06:55)

Waiting For God - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: After Rimmer and Lister argue about the pod, Rimmer walks off and Lister steps into the observation room. As Lister steps in, his locks are over his left shoulder, then in the next shot they are over his right shoulder. (00:14:05)

Dwarf

Tikka To Ride - S7-E1

Continuity mistake: When Lister picks up the camera at the start of the episode, he stands up and turns around. In the next shot, from the view point of the camera in his hand, the shot is still rotating as if he had just picked the camera up. (00:00:15)

Dwarf

Psirens - S6-E1

Continuity mistake: When Lister shoots the Psiren pretending to be Kryten, his locks are under his chin. In the next shot, the locks are gone. (00:21:35)

Dwarf

Balance of Power - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: When Lister and Rimmer are talking in their bunks, Lister says 'I've always been crazy about her'. He is looking to his right with his arm in the air, yet in the next shot he is looking down at the floor. (00:12:50)

Stoke Me A Clipper - S7-E2

Visible crew/equipment: When the alligator lands on the German guards, a fluffy grey boom mic can be seen at the top of the screen. (00:04:25)

Dwarf

Rimmerworld - S6-E5

Revealing mistake: When the Cat says 'Form an orderly queue behind the gunsight' you can see Lister mouth the line. (00:15:40)

Holoship - S5-E1

Continuity mistake: When Rimmer loses his intelligence during the test, his headphones move from his head to the desk in one camera cut. (00:20:05)

Dwarf

Legion - S6-E2

Other mistake: When Legion stabs his left hand, everyone grabs and shakes their left hands - except Lister, who grabs and shakes his RIGHT hand. (00:22:40)

Holoship - S5-E1

Continuity mistake: When Lister walks into the main cockpit at the start of the episode, his locks move from in front of his ear to behind it between shots. (00:03:05)

Dwarf

Holoship - S5-E1

Continuity mistake: When Lister says, 'He is really starting to get on my pecs', Kryten's hand is lowered. In the next shot, it is raised gesturing at Lister. (00:19:00)

Backwards - S3-E1

Continuity mistake: When Lister gets sucked through the window, one of the men that 'catches' him disappears when the camera changes. (00:24:35)

Marooned - S3-E2

Visible crew/equipment: If you look closely when the camera follows Lister (in the scene just before the meteor crashes onto Starbug) you can actually see the edge of the set and some studio lights. (00:04:10)

Pete (1) - S8-E6

Continuity mistake: When Bob helps Lister and Rimmer escape from the hole, there is no one sitting near the hole that drops out into the floor. In the next shot, Birdman's feet have appeared next to it. (00:24:10)
