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.

Kryten - S2-E1

Continuity mistake: When Kryten shows the crew information of the survivors on board the Nova 5, Tracey Johns is listed as the shortest. In the group photo she is the tallest of the three.

Back To Reality - S5-E6

Factual error: While it is true that lithium carbonate can be used to treat depression and other psychiatric disorders, it cannot be administered in gaseous form. It is a very stable salt and only starts to form vapour at 1,310 degress Celcius. Spraying it about as a 'mood stabliser' at that temperature, as Kryten does, is going to kill everyone on the spot.

Back in the Red (3) - S8-E3

Revealing mistake: After the Cat's dance, Lister says 'we are outta here' and pulls the level, at which point the crew all fall back as if Blue Midget had rushed forwards. However, in the model shot of the ship it shows it scraping its foot on the floor before it runs forwards, meaning the crew should not have fallen back in their seats.

Demons & Angels - S5-E5

Visible crew/equipment: After Lister is attacked by low Kryten, he sneaks through the cargo bay. There is a shot where the camera is following Lister as he sneaks around a corner, if you look at the floor you can see the shadow of the cameraman.

Beyond a Joke - S7-E6

Continuity mistake: Able's head bounces off the simulant and lands behind him, yet when Lister sends the gelf and simulant back to their ship, the head is next to him on the floor.

Stasis Leak - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: In the hotel when the case moves past the Cat, the shot changes and the Cat has moved from the pink carpet to the blue carpet.

Dwarf

Confidence and Paranoia - S1-E5

Continuity mistake: At the start of the episode, when Lister is watching the film, keep an eye on his milkshake. One moment the glass is on the table, then when the camera cuts, he's drinking from it.

Dwarf

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.

Craig Bryant

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.

Kryten - S2-E1

Continuity mistake: When Rimmer lies and says he is a space adventurer, Lister leans towards him and his locks are behind his back. In the next shot one lock is over his right shoulder.

Back in the Red (1) - S8-E1

Continuity mistake: When Lister goes to hug Selby and Chen, his locks are over his right shoulder. In the next shot they are behind his back.

Holoship - S5-E1

Continuity mistake: When Kryten makes his speech about sex being tacky, Lister has a forkfull of curry. The camera changes angles and Lister is taking the fork from his mouth.

xx:xx:xx

Dwarf

Holoship - S5-E1

Continuity mistake: When Kryten walks past Rimmer at the start of the episode and says 'I'm on to it right away, Holly,' he manages to move from in front of Rimmer to halfway up the set of steps by the door in one camera cut.

Holoship - S5-E1

Revealing mistake: When Rimmer says 'as if' at the start of the episode, you can see out of the front of Starbug, but there are no stars.

Backwards - S3-E1

Revealing mistake: At the end of the episode, the shot with the taxi has been reversed to show the number plate backwards. It has also changed everything else in the shot, most notably, the cat's outfit. In the next scene they have been flipped back to normal.
