Red Dwarf

Back in the Red (3) - S8-E3

Revealing mistake: When Rimmer is typing on the keyboard, what he is saying does not match what he is typing. He is typing randomly. (00:12:20)

Polymorph - S3-E3

Factual error: The polymorph goes through a metal pipe and a tap which bulges and becomes mis-shapen. The tap then changes back to its original shape, which is impossible. (00:18:00)

Dwarf

Timeslides - S3-E5

Continuity mistake: Kryten needs to ask what a pub is, yet in the episode "Backwards" he and Rimmer worked in one for three weeks as the comedy act "The Sensational Reverse Brothers", and, later, were involved in a brawl in the same pub. Originally, the episodes were to be shown in a different order, which explains why the mistake occurs, but doesn't excuse it. (00:12:55)
