Polymorph - S3-E3

Continuity mistake: Kryten removes the polymorph underpants and throws them under the covers of Lister's bed. When he checks the bed and pulls out a snake the pants are now on top of the covers (even though he says they're gone) and the covers themselves are now arranged differently.

Timeslides - S3-E5

Continuity mistake: Kryten needs to ask what a pub is, yet in the episode "Backwards" he and Rimmer worked in one for three weeks as the comedy act "The Sensational Reverse Brothers", and, later, were involved in a brawl in the same pub. Originally, the episodes were to be shown in a different order, which explains why the mistake occurs, but doesn't excuse it.

The Last Day - S3-E6

Continuity mistake: In this episode Kryten has no idea how to operate a bazookoid, yet earlier on in 'Polymorph' he was able to change the settings of one from standard to heat-seek and fire it without a problem.

Timeslides - S3-E5

Continuity mistake: When Rimmer visits rich Lister, he apears from a point right next to him. But when he leaves, the point at which he disappears is much furthur back.
