Stasis Leak - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: When Rimmer is talking to the captain while he is dressed as a chicken, the blue bucket moves between camera cuts from being hung up on the large canister, to being on the floor next to Rimmer's bed. (00:20:35)

Dwarf

Me2 - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: When we see Rimmer's Death video, the atomic blast pushes him into the Captain's office. However, in "The End," Holly indicates that the two piles of dust next to each other in the centre of the drive room are Captain Hollister and Rimmer. (00:10:00)

Quarantine - S5-E4

Revealing mistake: As pointed out by Danny John Jules on the DVD Commentary, during the 'Feckles, Heckles, Hackles, Schmeckles' argument, Cat pushes his face right against Kryten's, leaving a brown makeup smear on Kryten's forehead. The mark is gone in the next shot. (00:19:45)

The End - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When Lister pours the milk for his cat, he looks at the cupboard where the cat is, yet in the next shot he is looking down at the floor. (00:14:35)

Dwarf

Backwards - S3-E1

Plot hole: If everything goes backwards, shouldn't Kryten and Rimmer have got fired, done their job and then got hired? Rimmer & Kryten discovered that everything was backwards in the cafe earlier in the episode. At the club they did their act and then got fired. Put this 'forwards' and it becomes wrong.

Back in the Red (2) - S8-E2

Continuity mistake: When Rimmer walks down the corridor, his hair is a mess. When he enters the medi-bay it is tidy. (00:25:25)

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. (00:07:30)

Dwarf

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)

Back in the Red (3) - S8-E3

Continuity mistake: When The Cat does his dance with Blue Midget, he stands behind one of the legs of Blue Midget and changes his clothes. The old clothes he throws on the ground when changing disappear in the wide shot of the landing area. (00:08:55)

Future Echoes - S1-E2

Revealing mistake: In the drive room when Lister kicks the vending machine after he finds out he's going to die, you can see the shadow of the machine wobbling as if it were lightweight. (00:20:20)

Dwarf

Duct Soup - S7-E4

Continuity mistake: When Lister starts to read his comic, his locks move from behind his back to in front of his right shoulder, then back again between cuts. (00:06:45)

Dwarf

Out Of Time - S6-E6

Continuity mistake: When Lister gets killed, his locks are behind his back. In the shot before, they are over his left shoulder. (00:26:20)

Dwarf

The Inquisitor - S5-E2

Revealing mistake: Just after the Trojans' conversation, there are two jolts. Lister jumps back too soon on the second jolt. (00:03:30)

Dwarf

The Inquisitor - S5-E2

Continuity mistake: Just after the inquisitor is frozen when Lister and Kryten switch gauntlets, the glove gets onto Kryten's hand in one camera cut. (00:24:30)

Dwarf

The Inquisitor - S5-E2

Continuity mistake: When Starbug gets taken over and Kryten says it is not a malfunction, he has his hands in the air. The camera cuts to Rimmer, and Kryten's hands are by his side. (00:03:45)

Dwarf

Dimension Jump - S4-E5

Continuity mistake: When Lister drops the magazine in front of Rimmer it lands closed. When Rimmer begins to read it, it is open on the floor. (00:13:25)

Dwarf

Stasis Leak - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: When the Cat and Lister look at the wedding photo at the end of the episode, Lister is holding the photo at the bottom left corner in some shots, and the bottom right in others. (00:23:10)

Dwarf

The End - S1-E1

Visible crew/equipment: When Todhunter asks everyone to stand for the cutting of the cake, a red boom mic can be seen in the top left corner of the screen. (00:12:05)
