Meltdown - S4-E6

The End - S1-E1

Visible crew/equipment: When Lister asks Todhunter if stasis will hurt, on the very far right of the screen you can see the reflection of what appears to be a camera being moved away from the shot. (00:19:05)


Blue - S7-E5

Continuity mistake: When Lister gets Starbug out of the comet tail, he only has two locks over his left shoulder. In the next shot there are 4 over his shoulder. (00:07:30)


Duct Soup - S7-E4

Continuity mistake: When Kochanski is in bed at the start of the episode, she is wearing stud ear rings. When she gets up to go to the kitchen area, they are now hoops. (00:02:20 - 00:03:50)


Beyond a Joke - S7-E6

Continuity mistake: When Able takes his head off and throws it at the simulant, he throws it forwards towards where Lister is standing. The head manages instead, somehow, to hit the simulant standing next to the gelf on Able's left. (00:20:00)

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.
