Back in the Red (3) - S8-E3

Continuity mistake: When The Cat does his dance with Blue Midget, he stands behind one of the legs of Blue Midget and changes his clothes. The old clothes he throws on the ground when changing disappear in the wide shot of the landing area. (00:08:55)

Padzter

Back in the Red (3) - S8-E3

Continuity mistake: During the Cat's dance, he taps his feet and tilts his head back, which Blue Midget copies. In the next shot Blue Midget is looking downwards and then proceeds to do the same dance it just did in the previous shot. (00:10:00)

Pete (2) - S8-E7

Continuity mistake: When Lister uses the time wand to bring back Birdman's boots, his locks are in front of his left shoulder. In the next shot they are behind his back, then they appear again in front of his left shoulder in the following shot. (00:22:55)

Back in the Red (1) - S8-E1

Continuity mistake: When Lister is lying on the top bunk talking to Rimmer about the 83 year old dad, he says "he'd probably pretend to be dead" as he puts is left hand on the side of his face. The camera cuts to Rimmer then back to Lister again, as he puts his left hand on the side of his face again. (00:01:55)

Pete (1) - S8-E6

Visible crew/equipment: When Lister sprays Bob with WD40, The thumb of the person operating Bob's head is seen for a brief second in the top right hand side of the screen. This is visible if you watch the DVD on your PC as this will not be visible on some TVs. (00:12:15)

Dwarf

Pete (2) - S8-E7

Plot hole: Pete the sparrow was dead before the time wand was used on him to become a dinosaur. When the undo button was pressed, Pete should have turned back into a dead sparrow. (00:23:10)

Dwarf

Back in the Red (3) - S8-E3

Revealing mistake: After the Cat's dance, Lister says 'we are outta here' and pulls the level, at which point the crew all fall back as if Blue Midget had rushed forwards. However, in the model shot of the ship it shows it scraping its foot on the floor before it runs forwards, meaning the crew should not have fallen back in their seats. (00:10:50)

Dwarf

Nanarchy - S7-E8

Lister: What, they fixed your core program and then decided they'd be better off without you?
Holly: Yeah, it was shortly after they met me.

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.
