Red Dwarf

Meltdown - S4-E6

Factual error: 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?

D.N.A. - S4-E2

Continuity mistake: When Lister knocks over the can of beer, the ring pull is flat. When the can hits the floor, the ring pull is sticking out. (00:26:05)

D.N.A. - S4-E2

D.N.A. - S4-E2

Revealing mistake: Rimmer looks to have trapped his finger in something as he has a blackened fingernail. As he is a hologram this would be impossible. (00:07:30)

Dwarf

D.N.A. - S4-E2

Continuity mistake: When Kryten decides to be a mechanoid again, Lister gets up and grabs his jacket and swings it around his shoulders. The camera cuts to Kryten for a second then back to Lister, who now has his jacket on fully. The amount of time the camera was away from Lister would make this impossible for him to put the jacket on that quickly. (00:22:15)

Dimension Jump - S4-E5

Continuity mistake: When Lister drops the magazine in front of Rimmer it lands closed. When Rimmer begins to read it, it is open on the floor. (00:13:25)

Dwarf

D.N.A. - S4-E2

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Lister is talking to human Kryten, just before Lister sees the photos, keep an eye on Lister's hat. It is perched on top of his head with about an inch of hair showing, yet the next shot shows the hat covering all of the hair, then it goes back to an inch of hair showing again. There is no time for Lister to have adjusted his hat between cuts. It is clear the line had to be re-shot. (00:12:35)

D.N.A. - S4-E2

Continuity mistake: When Lister throws the can of lager at the curry monster, the can rotates in its mouth between cuts. (00:26:30)

Dwarf

Dimension Jump - S4-E5

Continuity mistake: When the crew are wheeling the Cat in the corridors of Red Dwarf, Kryten is holding onto the Cat's hand. In the next shot he is pushing the stretcher. (00:23:00)

Dwarf

Justice - S4-E3

Continuity mistake: When Kryten and the Cat enter Rimmer's cell, Lister's hair moves from in front of his shoulder to behind his back in one cut. 16.10. (00:16:10)

Dwarf

Justice - S4-E3

Factual error: The justice computer states that Rimmer is guilty of 1167 counts of 2nd degree murder, each carrying a sentence of 8 years giving a total of 9328 years. This is equivalent to 1166 counts. (00:14:00)

Craig Bryant

D.N.A. - S4-E2

Visible crew/equipment: In the sleeping quarters just before the Cat sneezes onto the microscope, a boom mic shadow can be seen on the table in front of him. Also, just before as Lister walks behind Rimmer the shadow is visible moving past on Rimmer's hair. (00:18:30)

Dwarf

Dimension Jump - S4-E5

Revealing mistake: Rimmer is able to move the swivel chair in this episode despite being a hologram. (00:24:35)

Dwarf

Meltdown - S4-E6

Revealing mistake: In the chimney, the light appears when Lister lights his cigarette lighter. He turns the lighter off a moment later but the light is still there. (00:07:35)

Dwarf

White Hole - S4-E4

Continuity mistake: Just after Kryten says what point in time he would like to return to, he is looking down and working with the screwdriver. The camera angle changes and he is looking straight forwards with the screwdriver on its side. (00:05:35)

Justice - S4-E3

Continuity mistake: In Rimmer's cell, the book at the end of the bed moves from one side to the other when Lister sets himself on fire. It then moves back to its original position on the bed. (00:15:40)

Dwarf

D.N.A. - S4-E2

Continuity mistake: Kryten has three spare heads but in 'The Last Day' in series 3, he only packed away one head. (00:18:40)

Justice - S4-E3

Visible crew/equipment: When the crew are standing before the Judgement computer (when Lister is worrying that he will be sent to prison) if you look above Lister's head you can see a microphone bob up and down into shot. (00:11:10)

D.N.A. - S4-E2

Visible crew/equipment: When Lister says 'get me out of this thing' just after the Cat starts pressing buttons on the transmogrification machine, a boom mic can be seen above the Cat's head. (00:04:55)
