Red Dwarf

D.N.A. - S4-E2

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Lister is talking to human Kryten, just before Lister sees the photos, keep an eye on Lister's hat. It is perched on top of his head with about an inch of hair showing, yet the next shot shows the hat covering all of the hair, then it goes back to an inch of hair showing again. There is no time for Lister to have adjusted his hat between cuts. It is clear the line had to be re-shot. (00:12:35)

Back in the Red (2) - S8-E2

Continuity mistake: When Kryten is restored to his factory settings, the woman is pressing buttons on the keypad. In the next shot, her arm is by her side. (00:17:40)

Holoship - S5-E1

Audio problem: When Rimmer says 'Those kind of films really irritate me,' his lips do not move during 'Those kind of.' (00:02:10)

Revealing mistake: When Lister burns Rimmer's money, you can see they are Italian Lire notes. (00:19:15)

Psirens - S6-E1

Other mistake: Kryten places Rimmer's light bee on the floor, then begins the process of reinitialising him. As the process finishes and Rimmer looks at Lister (who looks away), the light bee, which should be hovering within his torso projecting his image, is still visible on the floor between his feet.

Better Than Life - S2-E2

Continuity mistake: As the crew enter the game, Lister pushes the door to the beach open. However in the next shot, the door is opening from the other side, i.e. Lister is pulling the door. (00:16:10)

Parallel Universe - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: In the quarters of the female versions of the crew, the newspaper clippings and certificates on the wall still have the name 'Arnold' on them, and not the female equivalent, as it was supposed to be. (00:23:15)

Dimension Jump - S4-E5

Continuity mistake: When the crew are wheeling the Cat in the corridors of Red Dwarf, Kryten is holding onto the Cat's hand. In the next shot he is pushing the stretcher. (00:23:00)

Better Than Life - S2-E2

Better Than Life - S2-E2

Continuity mistake: The sand that lands on Rimmer's shoulder when Lister and the Cat drive away on the bike disappears in the next shot. (00:18:10)

Back in the Red (1) - S8-E1

Continuity mistake: When Lister is lying on the top bunk talking to Rimmer about the 83 year old dad, he says "he'd probably pretend to be dead" as he puts is left hand on the side of his face. The camera cuts to Rimmer then back to Lister again, as he puts his left hand on the side of his face again. (00:01:55)

Legion - S6-E2

Continuity mistake: When Kryten explains about the wine, Lister's glass is half empty. When he tries to drink from it, it is almost full. (00:15:55)

Dwarf

Psirens - S6-E1

Revealing mistake: During the 'Two Listers' scene, specifically the cut when Kryten tosses the apples to the Listers, the split screen is quite visibly moving in between the chairs. (00:22:55)

Demons & Angels - S5-E5

Continuity mistake: When Lister swings the axe at The Cat and hits the door frame, the axe head bends. When Lister pulls the axe out, its head is fine again. (00:22:30)

Visible crew/equipment: When Kryten and Rimmer find the Nodnol sign, a large boom mic can be seen above their heads. (00:07:15)

Dwarf

Holoship - S5-E1

Revealing mistake: When Binks teleports onto Starbug, you can see Lister move between the cut as he appears. (00:07:40)

Dwarf

roboc

Revealing mistake: In the observation dome, the borders of the blue screen used to project the image of space behind Lister and Rimmer can be seen around the dome. (00:09:55)
