Backwards - S3-E1

Revealing mistake: When Kryten is doing his driving test, as soon as we see Rimmer and Kryten in the cockpit you can see the wire attached to Chris Barrie behind him, next to the aerial on his hat, going vertically out the top of the frame.

Backwards - S3-E1

Other mistake: At the start of "Backwards", there is a spoof "Star Wars" type caption, which spools up the screen very quickly. Too quickly to be read in fact...which may explain why few people have noticed that the last line of the caption "And now the Story Continuums..." is written TWICE

Marooned - S3-E2

Other mistake: When the meteor hits Starbug, there are no stars outside the front of the ship at all.

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.

Backwards - S3-E1

Continuity mistake: In the forest, Lister and the Cat take a poster off a tree. They then show it to the man who gives them a lift. The poster is different to the one in the forest.

Marooned - S3-E2

Continuity mistake: When Lister puts the snapped guitar into the fire, the broken piece of the neck end is sticking out of the top. When Rimmer comes in, the neck of the guitar is now upside down.

Timeslides - S3-E5

Continuity mistake: We are told that it is impossible to move outside the frame of a slide, yet when we are shown the slide of young Lister and his band, all we see is the band on stage but the crew move freely about the pub.

Marooned - S3-E2

Visible crew/equipment: If you look closely when the camera follows Lister (in the scene just before the meteor crashes onto Starbug) you can actually see the edge of the set and some studio lights.

Marooned - S3-E2

Revealing mistake: When Lister cuts out the guitar from the trunk, the edges are black. When Lister snaps the guitar in two, you can see the wood is a different colour inside, meaning the edges of the cut out had been painted previously.

Polymorph - S3-E3

Continuity mistake: At the end of the episode, the second Polymorph changes from Lister back to its original form. As this happens, the background changes completely.

Timeslides - S3-E5

Continuity mistake: When we see the photo of the skiers, there are no boxes in front of the screen. When the shot changes, two boxes have appeared which Rimmer and Lister use as steps.

Polymorph - S3-E3

Revealing mistake: The cardboard box that the Cat holds up to block the heat seeking missiles has two pre-cut holes in it. You can just barely see them as he takes the box from the shelf.
