Balance of Power - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: When Lister is changing near the start of the episode, there are no stickers on his locker. When he leaves the room, they appear.

00:03:55 - 00:05:10

Dwarf

Confidence and Paranoia - S1-E5

Revealing mistake: Rimmer asks Confidence and Lister "Where's Paranoia?", when Confidence replies "I dont know. Is it some place near Uruguay?" Lister is mouthing his lines.

Back in the Red (2) - S8-E2

Plot hole: As the luck virus gets you what you want, it should not have cured Lister of the sexual magnetism virus when Kochanski was all over him.

00:16:25

Dwarf

D.N.A. - S4-E2

Continuity mistake: When Kryten is feeling his face, Lister walks in with a tray and looking straight forward. When the camera changes angles, Lister is looking up at Holly.

Dwarf

Holoship - S5-E1

Continuity mistake: After Rimmer and Nirvanah have sex, as they're getting out of bed, Nirvanah ties her robe twice. In the next shot as she's standing, the robe is open again.

00:14:00

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

00:24:40

Dwarf

Psirens - S6-E1

Continuity mistake: When 'Kryten' kills the Psiren kissing Lister, Lister's locks move from outside his coat to inside in one cut.

00:21:20

Dwarf

Back To Reality - S5-E6

Continuity mistake: When the Cat is holding up the haddock, going through the people who have commited suicide, the shot changes and the haddock disappeares from his hand. Also after the shot changes, the Cat is then pointing at Kryten and smiling.

Timeslides - S3-E5

Confidence and Paranoia - S1-E5

Revealing mistake: In the captain's office, the words 'Medical bay' have been painted on the wall. This was near the end of the episode and can be seen over Rimmer's shoulder while they are talking in the drive room. The set was obviously doubled with the medical bay, as the captain's office is not used in this episode.

Dwarf

Me2 - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: When Lister and the Cat are talking to the original Rimmer in the cinema, the new Rimmer enters and argues with the original. The original Rimmer makes hand puppets, while the new Rimmer sits at the front. When Lister does the ippy-dippy, the Rimmers have swapped places. The new Rimmer says that he was there first, without complaint from the original.

Confidence and Paranoia - S1-E5

Visible crew/equipment: When the skutters try to move Lister in the Medi-bay, you can see the cable which pulls Lister's chair in the bottom right of the screen.

00:12:40

Dwarf

Queeg - S2-E5

Audio problem: During the conversation in which Holly wants to prove he has an IQ of 6000 (while Lister and the Cat are scrubbing the floor), there is a brief moment where you can see the TV Holly is on (at an angle). You can hear sound coming from him, but his lips aren't moving.

00:16:55

Timeslides - S3-E5

Continuity mistake: We are told that it is impossible to move outside the frame of a slide, yet when we are shown the slide of young Lister and his band, all we see is the band on stage but the crew move freely about the pub.

00:11:40

Padzter

Future Echoes - S1-E2

Audio problem: In Rimmer's future echo he says, "You're space crazy", but in the real conversation with Lister, he actually says, "You are space crazy".

00:15:20 - 00:16:15

Padzter

The End - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When Rimmer and Lister leave their sleeping quarters, there are two pictures on the wall between the door and the window and a canister on the wall beside the beds. When they are next in the room the items are gone, and at the end of the episode they have all returned.

00:09:20 - 00:12:50

Dwarf

Psirens - S6-E1

Revealing mistake: Just after we see the first meteorite, there is a brief moment where the model shot and the crew walking into the cockpit overlap causing both images to be seen together.
