New this month Continuity mistake: When Lister is watching the video message of a psiren, posing as Kochanski, Lister asks "How? I don't understand" and Kochanski, on the video appears to move her face beginning to reply, but when the shot cuts back to the video, Kochanski's face is suddenly still.
New this month Continuity mistake: When Rimmer suggests bringing Legion with him, Lister says he's not going to come with them, and asks if he would ever join in on their late night sessions of pin the pointy stick on the weather girl. At the end of the line, Lister is looking to the right, but in the next shot, he is suddenly looking downwards.
New this month Revealing mistake: When Lister hits Legion over the head, his mask falls off. In the shot that shows Rimmer, Cat and Kryten in the foreground sitting at the table and Lister and Legion in the background, Legion's face can be seen and it is apparent that it is not the combination of the four that is his face, but in fact the actor's real face.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Continuity mistake: When Legion brings the feast, Kryten is stood by the door. Rimmer says about how he appreciates art, then in the next shot of the Cat, Kryten walks behind him. Kryten would have had to walk past Rimmer in the previous shot to get there yet we did not see him while Rimmer was talking.
Continuity mistake: The Cat brings down the town sign by shooting the right hand side of it. Seconds later, when they pick Kryten up, the sign is hanging in front of the Livery building, which would only have been possible if he'd shot the left hand side.
Revealing mistake: At the start of the episode, we see Lister in black and white talking to Loretta. Then we cut back to what's really happening, he is playing on the AR console. Look at the door behind him, you can see Kryten's hand sticking out in the doorway. He is supposed to rush in and start talking, but you can see him waiting off camera to be told when to enter the room.
