Red Dwarf

Confidence and Paranoia - S1-E5

Revealing mistake: When Rimmer gets into bed, near the start of the episode, you can see that he brushes past Lister's blanket hanging down and slightly moves it. He should not have been able to do this as he is a hologram, it should have passed through him. Rimmer's pillows and bedding move as well. (00:06:50)

Dwarf

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. (00:13:20)

Dwarf

Kryten - S2-E1

Revealing mistake: When the crew board the Nova 5, Rimmer's shoulder brushes against a hanging plant which moves very slightly. As he is a hologram this would be impossible. (00:17:30)

Dwarf

Season 2 generally

Continuity mistake: Lister and Rimmer's bunk room looks exactly the same in the flashback scenes during this series as it does in the present time. In the first series it looked completely different, so surely the look should have changed slightly for the flashback scenes?

Padzter

D.N.A. - S4-E2

Continuity mistake: When Kryten decides to be a mechanoid again, Lister gets up and grabs his jacket and swings it around his shoulders. The camera cuts to Kryten for a second then back to Lister, who now has his jacket on fully. The amount of time the camera was away from Lister would make this impossible for him to put the jacket on that quickly. (00:22:15)

Nanarchy - S7-E8

Lister: What, they fixed your core program and then decided they'd be better off without you?
Holly: Yeah, it was shortly after they met me.

Kryten - S2-E1

Question: When Holly is saying about how he has changed music he says that because of the 2 new notes he's made instruments would be bigger. "Triangles will have four sides. Piano keyboards the length of zebra crossings. Course, women will have to be banned from playing the cello." I don't understand the joke about the cello part. Could someone please tell me what he means?

Answer: The cello is a large four-stringed instrument, which, when it is played, stands vertically on the floor between the player's legs (assuming they are seated). If it is to grow as large as the other instuments mentioned will, it would require a rather unseemly lack of femininity to be able to encompass it with the legs.
