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. (00:03:40)

Bodyswap - S3-E4

Revealing mistake: When Kryten takes the syringe out of Lister's head, the needle doesn't come out of the syringe properly, so Kryten puts his hand in front of the needle to try and hide the mistake. (00:05:25)

Padzter

Bodyswap - S3-E4

Revealing mistake: Starbug and Blue Midget wobble on a number of occasions during the chase. (00:23:25)

Marooned - S3-E2

Revealing mistake: When Lister burns Rimmer's money, you can see they are Italian Lire notes. (00:19:15)

Dwarf

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. (00:25:35)

Dwarf

The Last Day - S3-E6

Revealing mistake: You can tell Robert Llewellyn is reading his lines when Kryten receives the computer chip. He is looking much lower than the chip in his hand and it was obviously quite a complicated piece of dialogue to remember. (00:12:35)

Dwarf

Backwards - S3-E1

Revealing mistake: Lister mouths the Cat's line, "Your gajungas will suddenly rise back into your body, and the next thing you know you're singing soprano in the school choir." (00:20:25)

Dwarf

Backwards - S3-E1

Revealing mistake: Near the end of the episode, Kryten and his employer are seen arguing in supposedly backwards English. However, when you watch the episode how the people of earth would see it on the second DVD, Kryten and his employer aren't speaking English, they are just speaking plain gobbeldy-gook, even although when you see the people of Earth talking on the DVD they speak correctly. (00:22:30)

Backwards - S3-E1

Revealing mistake: During the fight, there is a man in a 'Flash Gordon' t-shirt with the logo forwards. (00:24:45)

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. (00:07:40)

Dwarf

Bodyswap - S3-E4

Revealing mistake: During the Scrabble game, Lister (in Rimmer's body) jumps out of his seat and you can hear the chair scrape across the floor. As Lister is a hologram, he should not have been able to move the chair. (00:14:45)

Dwarf

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. (00:14:25)

Timeslides - S3-E5

Revealing mistake: When Rimmer dies at the end of the episode, a dummy is visible just before the explosion. (00:26:40)

Dwarf

Bodyswap - S3-E4

Revealing mistake: When the Cat drops the tape of Lister's mind into the cup, you can just make out Lister beginning to smile just as Kryten moves in front of him. (00:05:45)

Dwarf

Bodyswap - S3-E4

Revealing mistake: When Rimmer is piloting Starbug in Lister's body, there is a shot of Starbug spinning in circles. This is a shot that was taken from S3 E2 Marooned, of Starbug crashing after colliding with the asteroid. The only difference is the planet in the background has been changed. (00:22:10)

Casual Person

Bodyswap - S3-E4

Revealing mistake: During the chase on the moon, there is a shot from in front of Starbug crashing into an asteroid. About 20s after, the exact same shot of Starbug crashing into an asteroid is been repeated a second time, when the ship crashes. (00:23:20)

Casual Person

Polymorph - S3-E3

Revealing mistake: When the Polymorph, posing at the snake, jumps on Lister, it is apparent that the snake on Lister has been replaced by a plastic inflatable replica that has no features and does not move. (00:10:05)

Casual Person

Backwards - S3-E1

Revealing mistake: After Starbug has left Red Dwarf, the scene cuts to inside the ship where Rimmer tells Kryten to autopilot, and the background of space is entirely still, even though the ship is moving. (00:04:45)

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?
