Red Dwarf

Demons & Angels - S5-E5

Continuity mistake: When remote controlled Lister is strangling the Cat, his locks are partially over his left shoulder and partially behind his back. When Lister picks up the bazookoid, his locks are all over his left shoulder. (00:23:10)


Demons & Angels - S5-E5

Continuity mistake: When Lister is sent flying when the crates explode, his hat falls off, but when he sits up he is still wearing it. It then falls off again when the low Lister spits at him, yet he is still wearing it when he rolls away. (00:13:50)


Holoship - S5-E1

Continuity mistake: When Lister is explaining the ending of the movie, he says "It's about a dude who sacrifices his life for love" whilst Rimmer looks at him, but in the next shot, Rimmer is suddenly looking forwards before turning back to Lister saying "as if." (00:02:55)

Casual Person

Holoship - S5-E1

Continuity mistake: When Kryten tells Rimmer he doesn't have the brain that can accept an implant, he says "No" and begins walking around the table. Kryten has his hands raised with his right hand slightly lower than the left, but in the next shot, both hands are suddenly level with each other. (00:22:05)

Terrorform - S5-E3

Continuity mistake: When Kryten cuts off his hand, all of the fingers on the hand are straight and level with each other, but when he goes to attach his eye to one of the fingers, the middle finger is suddenly raised. (00:02:35)

Casual Person

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.

Lister: What, they fixed your core program and then decided they'd be better off without you?

Kryten - S2-E1

Question: When Holly is saying about how he has changed music he says that because of the 2 new notes he's made instruments would be bigger. "Triangles will have four sides. Piano keyboards the length of zebra crossings. Course, women will have to be banned from playing the cello." I don't understand the joke about the cello part. Could someone please tell me what he means?

Answer: The cello is a large four-stringed instrument, which, when it is played, stands vertically on the floor between the player's legs (assuming they are seated). If it is to grow as large as the other instuments mentioned will, it would require a rather unseemly lack of femininity to be able to encompass it with the legs.
