Red Dwarf

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

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)


Out Of Time - S6-E6

Continuity mistake: When the crew fire at their future selves, Lister says 'locking on, firing'. His locks are behind his back but in the next shot they are in front of his left shoulder. (00:26:10)

Legion - S6-E2

Continuity mistake: When Kryten drinks the telekinetic wine, the level of liquid in the glass changes between shots. Also, after Kryten finishes drinking the level of wine is exactly the same as when he started. (00:16:00)


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.

Answer: Presumably he does, but it's never been used in any material related to the show. He is the only Cat left (as shown in Series 1), so even if he had once had a name, nobody would know it.

Answer: In the book, the Cat finds the concept of a name confusing, as he's convinced he's the center of the universe and the idea that someone wouldn't know who he was is baffling.
