Queeg - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: When Rimmer asks Queeq what article 5 is, Queeq is facing slightly to the left. The camera angle changes and he is then facing straight forward. (00:08:25)


Pete (1) - S8-E6

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Kochanski, the Cat, and Kryten first discover the time wand, there are a group of Canaries who are frozen in time from its effects. In the first shot of these people, the woman on the far right of the screen blinks her eyes. (Confirmed on DVD commentary). (00:15:50)

Pete (1) - S8-E6

Continuity mistake: As Norman Lovett points out in the commentary, when the Cat shoots in the basketball game, the ball wasn't going anywhere near the basket. The angle the ball lands in the net in the next shot is completely different as well. (00:06:10)


Bodyswap - S3-E4

Other mistake: The milkshake and toffee crisp come out of a different vending machine to where they were ordered. (00:01:50 - 00:06:55)


Out Of Time - S6-E6

Visible crew/equipment: When the Cat becomes visible again after going through an unreality pocket, the shot changes to a wide shot of the crew. A boom mic can be seen to be pulled out of shot at the top of the screen by Kryten's head. (00:11:40)


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.

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.
