Justice - S4-E3

Visible crew/equipment: When the crew are standing before the Judgement computer (when Lister is worrying that he will be sent to prison) if you look above Lister's head you can see a microphone bob up and down into shot. (00:11:10)

The Inquisitor - S5-E2

Audio problem: When Kryten says 'Excuse me, could I just distract you for a brief second?' his lips are out of sync with the dialogue and continue to move after he has finished speaking. (00:23:35)

The End - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When the Captain is making his speech for George McIntyre, he takes his hand out of his pocket and touches his glass. In the next shot, his hand is back in his pocket again. (00:10:35)


Holoship - S5-E1

Continuity mistake: When Kryten walks past Rimmer at the start of the episode and says 'I'm on to it right away, Holly,' he manages to move from in front of Rimmer to halfway up the set of steps by the door in one camera cut. (00:02:10)

Backwards - S3-E1

Continuity mistake: At The End of the episode, when the Cat says, 'I've forgotten something', watch the extra in the white t-shirt. He puts a pint to his mouth, and when the shot changes, it is gone. (00:25:05)


Justice - S4-E3

Revealing mistake: When the simulant pulls the knife out of his chest, you can see the knife is a dummy. As the handle is pulled back, the blade does not move at all. (00:25:30)


White Hole - S4-E4

Rimmer: The thing about Captain Oates... The thing you have to remember about Captain Oates... Captain Oates... Captain Oates was a prat.

Meltdown - S4-E6

Trivia: "Meltdown" was originally planned to be the first episode of Series IV of Red Dwarf. However, the militaristic tone of this episode - and in particular Dave Lister's strident anti-war speech near The End of the episode - meant it fell foul of the BBC censors. The original planned transmission date (Feb 14 1991) coincided with the outbreak of "Operation Desert Storm" - the Gulf War...and the BBC felt that an "anti-war" episode of Red Dwarf would be inappropriate for a country at war with Iraq.

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.
