Backwards - S3-E1

New this month 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.

Backwards - S3-E1

New this month 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.

Backwards - S3-E1

New this month Revealing mistake: After Starbug has left Red Dwarf, the scene cuts to inside the ship where Rimmer tells Kryten to autopilot, and the background of space is entirely still, even though the ship is moving.

New this month Suggested correction: Stars are so far away that they do not appear to move when travelling in space, unless you reach incredibly high speeds or change direction.

The End - S1-E1

New this month 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.

Kryten - S2-E1

New this month 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.

Stasis Leak - S2-E4

New this month 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.

Stasis Leak - S2-E4

New this month 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.

Stasis Leak - S2-E4

New this month 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.

Stasis Leak - S2-E4

Season 2 generally

New this month 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.

Waiting For God - S1-E4

New this month 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.

Camille - S4-E1

New this month Other mistake: When Kryten and Camille are having dinner, Camille puts her "hand" in the soup and begins slurping it up. The level of soup remains the same and doesn't lower despite being slurped.

Polymorph - S3-E3

New this month Character mistake: When Rimmer, Cat and Kryten go down to the cargo hold to search for the Polymorph, Kryten says "It's here" and "somewhere", but he delivers the line in an English accent and not in his robot voice.

Bodyswap - S3-E4

New this month Other mistake: When Lister inadvertently sets off the Auto Destruct sequence, the computer voice says the ship will detonate in 15 minutes. The computer then says "the ship will detonate" every five seconds followed by how much time until detonation, but the time in which the computer says this is inconsistent. Two seconds after the computer says 15 minutes, the computer says the ship will detonate in 14 minutes 55 seconds. Ten seconds after saying that, the computer says the ship will detonate in 14 minutes 50 seconds.

Bodyswap - S3-E4

New this month Other mistake: When the group are discussing if they can override the Auto Destruct, the computer voice says 8 minutes 20 seconds until detonation. About 20 seconds after saying this, the computer voice then says 8 minutes 10 seconds until detonation.

Backwards - S3-E1

New this month Revealing mistake: After landing on Earth, Rimmer and Kryten are standing on land. When Kryten asks "What is this place?", a car can be seen driving forwards in the far background, even though everything in this version of Earth is supposed to work backwards.

Backwards - S3-E1

New this month Other mistake: It is established in the backwards version of Earth, that all writing is reversed and is spelled backwards. However, there are some inconsistencies, as in some instances the writing has been mirrored to appear reversed, whilst in some instances the writing has just been spelled out backwards. For example, car number plates and signs on display in the background have been mirrored to appear reversed, but the newspaper that Kryten reads, the Nodnol sign and the Sensational Reverse Brothers poster appear normally typed out, and not as the mirror image that other aspects of this world have.

Backwards - S3-E1

New this month Revealing mistake: When Lister and Cat are in Starbug searching for Rimmer and Kryten, the background of space shown out the window remains entirely still and doesn't move.

Backwards - S3-E1

New this month Revealing mistake: The scene where the pub manager comes backstage to yell at Rimmer and Kryten was filmed, and then reversed to appear as if he was yelling backwards. Rimmer blinks when he is being yelled at, and due to the scene being played in reverse, his facial movements appear reversed, even though he is supposed to be moving forwards.
