Timeslides - S3-E5

Continuity mistake: We are told that it is impossible to move outside the frame of a slide, yet when we are shown the slide of young Lister and his band, all we see is the band on stage but the crew move freely about the pub. (00:11:40)

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)

Justice - S4-E3

Factual error: The justice computer states that Rimmer is guilty of 1167 counts of 2nd degree murder, each carrying a sentence of 8 years giving a total of 9328 years. This is equivalent to 1166 counts. (00:14:00)

Timeslides - S3-E5

Factual error: The Eagle on Hitler's briefcase is that of the (post war) Federal Republic of (West) Germany - not that of the Nazi German Third Reich. (00:08:25)

Nanarchy - S7-E8

Revealing mistake: After the conversation the crew have about famous people with one arm, Lister gets up and his real arm is visible under his clothes behind his back. (00:04:40)

Dwarf

Emohawk - Polymorph II - S6-E4

Revealing mistake: When the Gelfs release the Emohawk, it is thrown into the air and it flies away. However, if you look at the third Gelf you can see the shadow of the Emohawk puppet as it falls to the floor. (00:17:30)

Answer: Presumably he does, but it's never been used in any material related to the show. He is the only Cat left (as shown in Series 1), so even if he had once had a name, nobody would know it.

Answer: In the book, the Cat finds the concept of a name confusing, as he's convinced he's the center of the universe and the idea that someone wouldn't know who he was is baffling.
