Red 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)

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)

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)

White Hole - S4-E4

Continuity mistake: When the Cat and Lister are trying to cook an egg with a bicycle powered hair drier, you can see the Cat holding a frying pan. When Lister gives up and gets off the bike, Cat picks up a spatula with his other hand and starts poking the egg with it. However, in the next shot, he is shown with both hands on his hips. It's an instant cut with the same conversation continuing, so he didn't have time to put them down. (00:15:25)

Camille - S4-E1

Continuity mistake: After Kryten tells Camille she must think he is as stupid as a photocopier, a shadow is covering her whole face. In the next shot light is shining on her eye. (00:09:25)

Meltdown - S4-E6

Continuity mistake: When Rimmer says that he will lead the wax droids, Kryten is stood next to him shoulder to shoulder. The next shot shows Kryten yet Rimmer is not visible to his right, however in the next shot, Rimmer is stood in from of Kryten's right shoulder. (00:14:10)

Back To Reality - S5-E6

Factual error: While it is true that lithium carbonate can be used to treat depression and other psychiatric disorders, it cannot be administered in gaseous form. It is a very stable salt and only starts to form vapour at 1,310 degress Celcius. Spraying it about as a 'mood stabliser' at that temperature, as Kryten does, is going to kill everyone on the spot.

Answer: Presumably he does, but it's never been used in any material related to the show. He is the only Cat left (as shown in Series 1), so even if he had once had a name, nobody would know it.

Answer: In the book, the Cat finds the concept of a name confusing, as he's convinced he's the center of the universe and the idea that someone wouldn't know who he was is baffling.
