Backwards - S3-E1

Other mistake: At the start of "Backwards", there is a spoof "Star Wars" type caption, which spools up the screen very quickly. Too quickly to be read in fact...which may explain why few people have noticed that the last line of the caption "And now the Story Continuums..." is written TWICE

Holoship - S5-E1

Visible crew/equipment: When Binks arrives on Starbug, a boom mic can be seen at the top of the screen.

The End - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When Rimmer is panicking about his exam, Lister wakes up. If you look closely he lifts his head twice from his pillow between shots. Also, his bedsheets change position most notable by his elbow.

D.N.A. - S4-E2

Revealing mistake: Rimmer looks to have trapped his finger in something as he has a blackened fingernail. As he is a hologram this would be impossible.

Kryten - S2-E1

Continuity mistake: When Lister is changing, he throws his spray can into the air. The camera changes angles and the can does not land.
