Red Dwarf

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)

Casual Person

Pete (1) - S8-E6

Visible crew/equipment: When Lister is putting the chicken vindaloo on the table, a stage light is visible on the left hand side of the screen. (00:11:50)

Casual Person

Pete (1) - S8-E6

Visible crew/equipment: In the Captain's Office, when Rimmer says "That is not true. We played the joke on Mr. Ackerman, sir", a stage light is reflected on the object behind him and Lister. (00:01:05)

Casual Person

Future Echoes - S1-E2

Revealing mistake: When the future echo Rimmer leaves the drive room and the actual Rimmer walks in, there is a visible line caused by the split screen effect, done to show two Rimmers onscreen at the same time.

Casual Person

Stoke Me A Clipper - S7-E2

Continuity mistake: When Ace Rimmer releases the crocodile, it bites Captain Voorhese's head, and the two begin to fall when Ace removes Voorhese's parachute. When the crocodile lands on the ground a few minutes later, there is no sign of Voorhese. (00:02:15 - 00:04:25)

Casual Person

Me2 - S1-E6

Revealing mistake: When Lister goes to Rimmer's room the second time, the door opens before Lister hits the switch.

Casual Person

D.N.A. - S4-E2

Visible crew/equipment: When Lister and the Cat are walking through the corridor on the ship, the top of the set is visible through the transparent ceiling. (00:03:55)

Casual Person

Pete (2) - S8-E7

Continuity mistake: When Hollister goes to give the time wand back to Rimmer and Lister, you can see Hollister is about one inch smaller than Rimmer. In the next shot, Hollister is about one inch taller than Rimmer.

Casual Person

Gunmen of the Apocalypse - S6-E3

Continuity mistake: The Cat brings down the town sign by shooting the right hand side of it. Seconds later, when they pick Kryten up, the sign is hanging in front of the Livery building, which would only have been possible if he'd shot the left hand side.

Josman

Backwards - S3-E1

Visible crew/equipment: When Kryten ejects Rimmer from Starbug, the cable lifting him up can be seen above him.

Josman

Season 3 generally

Continuity mistake: Starbug 1 is abandoned on backwards Earth. But it still appears twice more in this series.

Josman

Waiting For God - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: When Rimmer first realises that his files are unflattering, the screen first from the right on the computer bank shows writing. But a change of view later, Holly is on the same screen. He does not have time to move.

Josman

Backwards - S3-E1

Revealing mistake: When Rimmer stands up from underneath the table, just before he says, "Thanks for your support" to Lister, listen very carefully and you can hear the stunt director saying "Action!" backwards. This shot was the splice point between the reversed and the regular footage. (I know this mistake is listed as being in the 'backwards version' on the DVD, but it is in the regular broadcast version too - you just have to listen harder for it.)

Cassandra - S8-E4

Other mistake: Cassandra says that all the canaries will be dead in 1 hour, with the exception of Rimmer, Kryten, Lister, Cat and Kochanski. However, Kill Crazy was still knocked out in the transport vehicle and presumably would have survived too.

Suggested correction: But Cassandra was known to lie if it suited her purpose, she said that Lister would harpoon Arnold through the head and kill him but that's not what really happened either.

Yes, Cassandra lied about Lister shooting Arnold through the head with a harpoon, but that was an attempt to stop Lister from killing her. Mentioning which of the canaries will survive had no impact on any of her plans, so not mentioning Kill Crazy survived is still incorrect on her behalf.

Gunmen of the Apocalypse - S6-E3

Revealing mistake: At the start of the episode, we see Lister in black and white talking to Loretta. Then we cut back to what's really happening, he is playing on the AR console. Look at the door behind him, you can see Kryten's hand sticking out in the doorway. He is supposed to rush in and start talking, but you can see him waiting off camera to be told when to enter the room.

Camille - S4-E1

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. (00:22:25)

Casual Person

Polymorph - S3-E3

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. (00:13:15)

Casual Person

Bodyswap - S3-E4

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. (00:01:50)

Casual Person

Bodyswap - S3-E4

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. (00:02:35)

Casual Person

Backwards - S3-E1

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. (00:06:15)
