Legion - S6-E2

Visible crew/equipment: When the Red Dwarf crew are talking about who Legion is (after Lister has poured his bucksfizz), Kryten then says, "Could our very presence here have inadvertently awoken him?" As he says this, at the left side of the screen the end of a camera lens pulls away.

Psirens - S6-E1

Continuity mistake: When Kryten gets up to fire from the waste disposal unit, he walks past Rimmer and reaches the door. In the next shot it shows Rimmer, and Kryten has vanished from the doorway.

Rimmerworld - S6-E5

Continuity mistake: During the hold-up scene with the Simulant, in the close-up of her speaking, her face is in darkness. The camera cuts away to Rimmer running for the escape pod, and then back to the Simulant, who is now well lit by a pair of overhead lights.

Psirens - S6-E1

Other mistake: Kryten places Rimmer's light bee on the floor, then begins the process of reinitialising him. As the process finishes and Rimmer looks at Lister (who looks away), the light bee, which should be hovering within his torso projecting his image, is still visible on the floor between his feet.

Psirens - S6-E1

Revealing mistake: During the 'Two Listers' scene, specifically the cut when Kryten tosses the apples to the Listers, the split screen is quite visibly moving in between the chairs.

Out Of Time - S6-E6

Revealing mistake: When the crew wake up from stasis, there is a model shot of Starbug flying towards the epicentre. You can see the legs of Starbug partially disappear as it gets closer to the ship.

Out Of Time - S6-E6

Visible crew/equipment: In the medi bay when Kryten says, 'I'll have a talk with him droid to droid,' a boom mic is visible at the top of the screen.

Emohawk - Polymorph II - S6-E4

Revealing mistake: When the Gelfs release the Emohawk, it is thrown into the air and it flies away. However, if you look at the third Gelf you can see the shadow of the Emohawk puppet as it falls to the floor.

Legion - S6-E2

Revealing mistake: During the scene in the space station's dining room, when Craig Charles is making a speech explaining that they should escape, he stands up and pours himself a glass of Bucks Fizz. Craig fills the glass too soon (half way through the speach) and must realise, as he pours the drink back into the pitcher, and then begins filling his glass again.

Season 6 generally

Revealing mistake: In several episodes, but mostly in series 6, we see lots of profile camera shots of just Lister and The Cat at the front of the cockpit in Starbug. Quite a few times you will see Lister mouth The Cat's lines so he knows when to start speaking and what to say.
