Season 3 generally

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

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.

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.

Entangled - S10-E4

Revealing mistake: When they change Professor Edgington from ape form to human form, the human form is obviously a lifeless mannequin.

Trojan - S10-E1

Continuity mistake: When Howard and Crawford are transported to Trojan, two of the three teleporter doors are open. When Crawford goes through the teleporter, one of the three doors close. Yet when Cat puts the resentment file into Crawford's neck, she starts shooting at everything including the teleporters, and now all the doors are open.

Fathers & Suns - S10-E2

Character mistake: Rimmer asks Kryten to make the new computer blonde. When the computer launches, the computer's hair is brunette.

Psirens - S6-E1

Revealing mistake: As Lister tries to sharpen/shorten his nails after getting out of deep sleep, you will see just before he stops that one nail snaps at the finger. He continues as if nothing happens, holding his hand still, as if it was still in the sharpener.

Future Echoes - S1-E2

Other mistake: When Rimmer is doing Lister's memo, there there are only about a few stars visible out the window, which is far too few given the amount of stars shown in exterior space shots of the ship. Additionally, a star suddenly appears in the window.

Future Echoes - S1-E2

Other mistake: When the Cat says there better be no dogs on the ship, there are only about two or three stars visible out the window. Far too few given the amount of stars shown in exterior space shots of the ship.
