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. (00:06:50)Dwarf
Revealing mistake: In the captain's office, the words 'Medical bay' have been painted on the wall. This was near the end of the episode and can be seen over Rimmer's shoulder while they are talking in the drive room. The set was obviously doubled with the medical bay, as the captain's office is not used in this episode. (00:23:25)Dwarf
Revealing mistake: When Lister goes into Rimmer's new room, there is a slight glitch with the split screen. When Lister is laughing at Rimmer's newspaper headlines on the door, the camera changes and the first frame only has Lister and Rimmer with the scutters. In the next frame the second Rimmer appears and the scutter on the right has moved. (00:06:10)Dwarf
Factual error: Kryten tells everyone that the matter paddle transmits matter in digital form from one place to another at the speed of light - he is very clear on this point. He then locates Waxworld, which is 200,000 light years away. Okay - so when they use the matter paddle to transmit themselves to Waxworld, why doesn't it take them 200,000 years to get there?
