Justice - S4-E3

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)

Justice - S4-E3

Continuity mistake: Near The End of the episode, after the simulant has strangled itself, it is lying flat on his back. When the Cat comes up behind it to attack it with a spade, the simulant is half sitting up. 26.20. (00:26:20)

Meltdown - S4-E6

Continuity mistake: When the battle ends, Kryten's chest monitor fits tightly into his chest plate. In the next scene the monitor has shrunk and there is a large gap between his chest and the screen. (00:23:40)

M-Corp - S12-E5

Other mistake: When Cat picks up the can of Leopard lager which is invisible to Lister, he shakes it, pops the cap and sprays Lister with foam. The foam is visible but the can remains invisible, and that makes no sense. If we are seeing the scene from Cat's point of view the can and foam should both be visible, and if it is from Lister's then neither should be.

More quotes from Red Dwarf

Meltdown - S4-E6

Trivia: "Meltdown" was originally planned to be the first episode of Series IV of Red Dwarf. However, the militaristic tone of this episode - and in particular Dave Lister's strident anti-war speech near The End of the episode - meant it fell foul of the BBC censors. The original planned transmission date (Feb 14 1991) coincided with the outbreak of "Operation Desert Storm" - the Gulf War...and the BBC felt that an "anti-war" episode of Red Dwarf would be inappropriate for a country at war with Iraq.
