Out Of Time - S6-E6

Revealing mistake: When the crew wake up from stasis, there is a model shot of Starbug flying towards the epicentre. You can see the legs of Starbug partially disappear as it gets closer to the ship. (00:12:45)

Dwarf

Confidence and Paranoia - S1-E5

Revealing mistake: When Rimmer gets into bed, near the start of the episode, you can see that he brushes past Lister's blanket hanging down and slightly moves it. He should not have been able to do this as he is a hologram, it should have passed through him. Rimmer's pillows and bedding move as well. (00:06:50)

Dwarf

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. (00:17:30)

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)

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.

White Hole - S4-E4

Rimmer: The thing about Captain Oates... The thing you have to remember about Captain Oates... Captain Oates... Captain Oates was a prat.

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.
