Red Dwarf

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.

The Inquisitor - S5-E2

Visible crew/equipment: When Rimmer is being questioned by the Inquisitor, a full boom mic and arm can be seen rising out of shot by the three candles on the right of the screen. (00:08:35)

Dwarf

Quarantine - S5-E4

Continuity mistake: When Kryten injects the luck virus into Lister's neck, the gun disappears from Kryten's hand between shots. (00:23:25)

Dwarf

Terrorform - S5-E3

Continuity mistake: When Lister, the Cat and Kryten figure out how to escape, Kryten says 'precisely' and raises his right hand. In the next shot, both of his hands are raised. (00:22:15)

Dwarf

Terrorform - S5-E3

Continuity mistake: At the start of the episode Kryten has crashed Starbug 1 onto the psi-moon. Lister and the Cat rescue him in Starbug 2, yet when the crew search for Rimmer in the swamp, they are in Starbug 1. (00:06:10 - 00:19:45)

Dwarf

Holoship - S5-E1

Visible crew/equipment: When Binks arrives on Starbug, a boom mic can be seen at the top of the screen. (00:07:45)

Dwarf

Quarantine - S5-E4

Revealing mistake: As pointed out by Danny John Jules on the DVD Commentary, during the 'Feckles, Heckles, Hackles, Schmeckles' argument, Cat pushes his face right against Kryten's, leaving a brown makeup smear on Kryten's forehead. The mark is gone in the next shot. (00:19:45)

The Inquisitor - S5-E2

Revealing mistake: Just after the Trojans' conversation, there are two jolts. Lister jumps back too soon on the second jolt. (00:03:30)

Dwarf

The Inquisitor - S5-E2

Continuity mistake: Just after the inquisitor is frozen when Lister and Kryten switch gauntlets, the glove gets onto Kryten's hand in one camera cut. (00:24:30)

Dwarf

Dwarf

Continuity mistake: When Lister swings the axe at The Cat and hits the door frame, the axe head bends. When Lister pulls the axe out, its head is fine again. (00:22:30)
