Red Dwarf

Demons & Angels - S5-E5

Continuity mistake: After the Cat incapacitates Lister, the Cat complains about his collar being untidy, then steps aside. The next shot shows Lister stood on his own and the Cat is not visible at all. There was no time for the Cat to walk that fast between shots. (00:23:20)

Demons & Angels - S5-E5

Continuity mistake: When remote controlled Lister is strangling the Cat, his locks are partially over his left shoulder and partially behind his back. When Lister picks up the bazookoid, his locks are all over his left shoulder. (00:23:10)

Demons & Angels - S5-E5

Continuity mistake: When Lister is sent flying when the crates explode, his hat falls off, but when he sits up he is still wearing it. It then falls off again when the low Lister spits at him, yet he is still wearing it when he rolls away. (00:13:50)

Timeslides - S3-E5

Factual error: The writer's understanding of the history of Nazism and its leaders is a bit shonky. Claus von Stauffenberg did not plant a bomb in Hitler's briefcase - he put it in his own briefcase which he planted in a meeting room next to Hitler (some berk moved it). This was in July 1944, while the last Nuremberg rally - which Lister visits, bringing back the briefcase - was in 1938. Stauffenberg didn't even join the anti-Hitler conspiracy until 1943. Red Dwarf is not an 'alternate history' - they correctly identify elements of the Stauffenberg plot and the Nazi regime, they just get them wrong.
