Red Dwarf

Back in the Red (3) - S8-E3

Continuity mistake: When the crew are plasticine in the screensaver, the Cat slides into the igloo. From one shot he is sliding towards the igloo from an angle, but in the next shot he is heading straight for the igloo. (00:14:55)

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)

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)

Back in the Red (3) - S8-E3

Continuity mistake: During the Cat's dance scene with Blue Midget, we see one shot of Blue Midget doing the air guitar move, but in the next shot, his arms are not visible at all. It changes between these two differing shots throughout the closing end of the dance routine. (00:10:10)

Pete (1) - S8-E6

Continuity mistake: When Bob helps Lister and Rimmer escape from the hole, there is no one sitting near the hole that drops out into the floor. In the next shot, Birdman's feet have appeared next to it. (00:24:10)

Dwarf

M-Corp - S12-E5

Other mistake: When Cat picks up the can of Leopard lager which is invisible to Lister, he shakes it, pops the cap and sprays Lister with foam. The foam is visible but the can remains invisible, and that makes no sense. If we are seeing the scene from Cat's point of view the can and foam should both be visible, and if it is from Lister's then neither should be.

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.
