Red Dwarf

Lemons - S10-E3

Character mistake: Upon hearing that Lister, Kryten, Cat and Rimmer have travelled from Albion - England - to India the woman in the market expresses surprise that they have travelled "halfway across the known world" just to buy lemons. In 23AD travelling from England to India was all the way across the known world. The Americas, Australasia and China were completely unknown at the time.

Lemons - S10-E3

Factual error: At the very end of the episode right before the Dwarfers sees Jesus and Judas, there is a plastic cup on their table. The episode is set in 23 AD.

Trojan - S10-E1

Revealing mistake: Crawford goes through the teleport to transport herself to the Space Station. But in the next shot, Crawford can be seen quickly leaving the shot as if she's still there. (00:23:05)

Casual Person

Trojan - S10-E1

Continuity mistake: When Howard and Crawford are transported to Trojan, two of the three teleporter doors are open. When Crawford goes through the teleporter, one of the three doors close. Yet when Cat puts the resentment file into Crawford's neck, she starts shooting at everything including the teleporters, and now all the doors are open. (00:23:00 - 00:26:30)

Suggested correction: When setting up the computer, there is an option for frame size. Kryten chooses close up, and when Pree appears on-screen Rimmer reacts to the fact that her breasts aren't visible whilst Kryten says that he likes that frame size. Presumably, there were other frame sizes available that would reveal more of Pree's body, giving meaning to the option.

Nanarchy - S7-E8

Lister: What, they fixed your core program and then decided they'd be better off without you?
Holly: Yeah, it was shortly after they met me.

Meltdown - S4-E6

Trivia: "Meltdown" was originally planned to be the first episode of Series IV of Red Dwarf. However, the militaristic tone of this episode - and in particular Dave Lister's strident anti-war speech near The End of the episode - meant it fell foul of the BBC censors. The original planned transmission date (Feb 14 1991) coincided with the outbreak of "Operation Desert Storm" - the Gulf War...and the BBC felt that an "anti-war" episode of Red Dwarf would be inappropriate for a country at war with Iraq.

Kryten - S2-E1

Question: When Holly is saying about how he has changed music he says that because of the 2 new notes he's made instruments would be bigger. "Triangles will have four sides. Piano keyboards the length of zebra crossings. Course, women will have to be banned from playing the cello." I don't understand the joke about the cello part. Could someone please tell me what he means?

Answer: The cello is a large four-stringed instrument, which, when it is played, stands vertically on the floor between the player's legs (assuming they are seated). If it is to grow as large as the other instuments mentioned will, it would require a rather unseemly lack of femininity to be able to encompass it with the legs.
