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. (00:20:30)

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. (00:12:45)

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. (00:12:10)

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. (00:22:55)

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. (00:17:30)

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. (00:20:20)

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. (00:09:55)

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. (00:06:00)

Suggested correction: Ace is a hologram. Even though he is hard light, he cannot be harmed. Which is why he was able to jump on the grenade and not be harmed. So the gas spray wouldn't have harmed him either.

White Hole - S4-E4

Rimmer: The thing about Captain Oates... The thing you have to remember about Captain Oates... Captain Oates... Captain Oates was a prat.

Trivia: The actor who plays the original Kryten, in 'Kryten', also turns up later as the voice of Talkie Toaster.

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.
