Timeslides - S3-E5

New this month Continuity mistake: When Kryten notices the photo of the bike in the countryside is moving, the peg attached to it is near the middle, along the top, but in the shot from behind, the peg is much closer to the right. The same goes for the photo of Kryten's birthday party.

Marooned - S3-E2

New this month Continuity mistake: When Lister is telling Rimmer that he is going to die and that Rimmer doesn't need food, there is snow over his face, hair and coat collar, but a few seconds later, the snow has mostly disappeared.

Backwards - S3-E1

New this month Continuity mistake: When Kryten is piloting Starbug and gently "eases forwards", there is a shot shown from behind Starbug where it is driving out of the cargo bay to the exit, and it is shown a couple feet off the ground. When Starbug exits Red Dwarf in the next shot, Starbug is suddenly much higher above the ground.

Backwards - S3-E1

New this month Continuity mistake: Rimmer wears a hat with an antenna on the right hand side when on Starbug, and after arriving on Earth, but when he and Kryten are walking through the streets later on, the antenna is now on the left side of his hat, and is far more extended.

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.

Polymorph - S3-E3

Continuity mistake: At the start of the episode, it is clear that the capsule fully rotates and the "contents: 2" sign is not on the capsule.

00:01:05

Backwards - S3-E1

Other mistake: At the start of the episode, 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 Saga Continuums...", is written twice.

00:00:20

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

Visible crew/equipment: After leaving Starbug, the Cat says, "What's the matter?" There is a boom mic visible at the top right of the screen. (This may not be visible on some TVs).

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.

Backwards - S3-E1

Continuity mistake: At the end of the episode, when the Cat says, 'I've forgotten something', watch the extra in the white t-shirt. He puts a pint to his mouth, and when the shot changes, it is gone.

00:25:05

Dwarf
Red Dwarf mistake picture

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.

The Last Day - S3-E6

Continuity mistake: When Kryten packs his spare heads away, he places the first one in the case with his left hand. In the next shot it has moved to his right hand.

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.

00:04:10

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.

00:10:00

Red Dwarf mistake picture

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.

00:22:25

Timeslides - S3-E5

Revealing mistake: When Lister is hit in the face with the snowball, some of the snow lands on Rimmer's hologramatic uniform.

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.

00:25:35

Dwarf

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.

The Last Day - S3-E6

Mistakes

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?
