Kryten - S2-E1

Bodyswap - S3-E4

Other mistake: When Lister (in Rimmer's body) pleads the Cat to lend him his body, he says "how else can I pilot White Midget?" In the next scene, the Blue Midget is being piloted, and White Midget was originally abandoned for Starbug. (This mistake was admitted by the crew).

Terrorform - S5-E3

Continuity mistake: When Lister, the Cat and Kryten figure out how to escape, Kryten says 'precisely' and raises his right hand. In the next shot, both of his hands are raised.

Terrorform - S5-E3

Continuity mistake: At the start of the episode Kryten has crashed Starbug 1 onto the psi-moon. Lister and the Cat rescue him in Starbug 2, yet when the crew search for Rimmer in the swamp, they are in Starbug 1.

Bodyswap - S3-E4

Revealing mistake: When Kryten takes the syringe out of Lister's head, the needle doesn't come out of the syringe properly, so Kryten puts his hand in front of the needle to try and hide the mistake.

Waiting For God - S1-E4

Backwards - S3-E1

Other mistake: At the start of the episode, there is a spoof Star Wars-type caption, which spools up the screen very quickly. Too quickly to be read, in fact... which may explain why few people have noticed that the last line of the caption, "And now the Saga Continuums...", is written twice.

00:00:20

Holoship - S5-E1

Visible crew/equipment: When Binks arrives on Starbug, a boom mic can be seen at the top of the screen.

00:07:45

Holoship - S5-E1

Visible crew/equipment: Just after Rimmer becomes smart, Kryten and Lister walk into the room. You can see the shadow of the cameraman on the floor before it pulls away.

00:18:10

Kryten - S2-E1

Revealing mistake: When Kryten is washing the floor, it is clear that there is no water in the bowl.

00:21:10

Dwarf

Psirens - S6-E1

Continuity mistake: When Kryten gets up to fire from the waste disposal unit, he walks past Rimmer and reaches the door. In the next shot it shows Rimmer, and Kryten has vanished from the doorway.

Back in the Red (1) - S8-E1

Plot hole: At the end of Nanarchy, Red Dwarf had been rebuilt to be the same as it has always been, yet in this episode it has transformed into its original design.

00:05:30

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

Psirens - S6-E1

Revealing mistake: The spike that kills Pete Tranter's sister is visible before she reacts to it, just below her elbow.
