Backwards - S3-E1

Continuity mistake: Rimmer wears a hat with an antenna on the right hand side when on Starbug, and after arriving on Earth, but when he and Kryten are walking through the streets later on, the antenna is now on the left side of his hat, and is far more extended. (00:02:20 - 00:08:00)

Backwards - S3-E1

Continuity mistake: When Kryten is piloting Starbug and gently "eases forwards", there is a shot shown from behind Starbug where it is driving out of the cargo bay to the exit, and it is shown a couple feet off the ground. When Starbug exits Red Dwarf in the next shot, Starbug is suddenly much higher above the ground. (00:04:20)

The End - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When Rimmer stresses out while preparing for his exam, he puts his hands on his face, and screams whilst starting to bend over. In the next shot, Lister wakes up, and Rimmer is suddenly standing upright. (00:13:20)

Kryten - S2-E1

Continuity mistake: When Holly interrupts Rimmer learning Esperanto saying "The menu looks interesting", he appears on the TV screen, with his chin blocked by the edge of the frame. The shot then cuts to a view of the screen, and his entire face is suddenly fully in the frame. (00:05:00)

Casual Person

Stasis Leak - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: In the lift, when the woman in the video is explaining how the lift works, she mentions "a bag will drop containing sedatives and cyanide capsules", pointing upwards. The shot cuts to Lister, and the woman in the video can be seen to the left of shot, with her arms at her side. (00:08:35)

Stasis Leak - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: In the hotel room, when future Lister is telling Lister he doesn't look pleased to see him, the two Listers are standing directly in front of each other, but from another angle, future Lister is standing around 90° rotated from before, and a few steps to the right of Lister. (00:25:35)

Casual Person

Stasis Leak - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: When Lister is in the hotel room with future Lister and Kochanski, Lister says he came because he thought he was going to get married whilst talking to future Lister, but in the next shot, Lister's facial expression has suddenly changed and is now looking more confused. (00:25:35)

Casual Person

Stasis Leak - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: When future Lister is making Lister and Cat leave the hotel room, Lister begins talking to future Lister about living his life. Future Lister is standing beside the door in one shot, but has his head suddenly resting on the door in the next shot. (00:26:25)

Season 2 generally

Other mistake: The shots of Blue Midget driving back to Red Dwarf that are shown from behind are visibly the exact same shots used each time. This is evident as the driving movements of Blue Midget, its position in the frame, and Red Dwarf's position in the background are all identical each time.

Casual Person

Waiting For God - S1-E4

Visible crew/equipment: When Lister steps back inside the observation room after Rimmer leaves, a stage light can be seen reflected in the window-like light fixture on the wall. It can't be a light on the ship as none of the lighting on Red Dwarf is in the shape of the light seen in the reflection. (00:14:05)

Casual Person

Blue - S7-E5

Audio problem: During the munchkin song, near the end, one of the lines of the song is "then he just might come round for dinner" - however Rimmer mouths "he might just come round for dinner" instead - swapping the words "might" and "just" (00:26:00)

Jamie Topp

Lemons - S10-E3

Audio problem: When they are chasing Jesus through the market, Lister's mouth is out of sync when he's shouting. (00:26:15)

Casual Person

Fathers & Suns - S10-E2

Continuity mistake: When Lister notices the video, the silhouette of a flashing blue light is cast on the table (to the left of screen). In the next shot, there is no sign of the flashing blue light. (00:10:40)

Fathers & Suns - S10-E2

Deliberate mistake: When the computer has been launched, Lister walks into the drive room and notices the computer and stands behind Kryten and Rimmer. But when the camera is focused on the computer, there is no sign of Lister what so ever. (00:10:00)

Casual Person

Trojan - S10-E1

Revealing mistake: Crawford goes through the teleport to transport herself to the Space Station. But in the next shot, Crawford can be seen quickly leaving the shot as if she's still there. (00:23:05)

Season 8 generally

Continuity mistake: At the end of "Nanarchy", Kochanski's hair is brown. However, throughout series 8, her hair is blonde. And with everything going on in "Nanarchy" there would have been nowhere near enough time for her to dye it.

Casual Person

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. (00:07:35)

Casual Person

Pete (1) - S8-E6

Revealing mistake: The potatoes used in spud duty are obviously just cardboard cut outs used to give the impression that there are lots of potatoes. (00:19:25)

Casual Person

Pete (2) - S8-E7

Revealing mistake: When Rimmer and Lister are being forced out Captain Hollister's office due to the effects of the fight catching up with them, a rattling sound can be heard off-screen, indicating the use of a hidden trolley-like device pushing them into the wall. (00:21:55)

Casual Person

Pete (2) - S8-E7

Continuity mistake: When Lister keeps using the time wand on Captain Hollister several times, he keeps saying "See you in 10 minutes" several times. Every time Hollister says the line, the way he delivers the line keeps changing. (00:12:55)
