Red Dwarf mistake picture

Krytie TV - S8-E5

Continuity mistake: In the scene on the Canaries' transport, where they first try to convince Kryten to record the women showering, Kochanski speaks the first line in the scene, but when the shot changes to the wide shot, she isn't there anymore. (Confirmed on the DVD commentary). (00:05:55 - 00:07:20)

Back in the Red (3) - S8-E3

Visible crew/equipment: When the Cat says "You mean to help you get out if the program freezes" on Blue Midget, a soundman can be seen crouching behind the control panel. The top of his head is visible in the top right of the screen. (00:14:10)


Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: That is not the head of a soundman crouching behind the control panel, or any crew member for that matter. What you are seeing is Kryten's hand moving around.

Casual Person

Pete (2) - S8-E7

Continuity mistake: At the start of the scene where Rimmer and Lister get beaten up in the captain's office, as they walk down the corridor, Lister's locks are behind his back. As they turn the corner in the next shot his locks are in front of his right shoulder. (00:20:40)


Ouroboros - S7-E3

Continuity mistake: When Lister looks at the photo of the gelf, the shots from behind show one of his locks over his right shoulder. However, the view from in front of Lister shows the lock is gone. (00:14:40)


Timeslides - S3-E5

Audio problem: In the photo of 'Smeg and the Heads' you can see that the drummer frantically plays the cymbals, but no sound comes from them. (00:11:40)


Better Than Life - S2-E2

Revealing mistake: When Holly is talking about his chess game, you can see his black clothing to the left of his chest, revealing he's hiding a body, and isn't just a computer generated floating head. (00:06:30)


Future Echoes - S1-E2

Revealing mistake: When Holly gives Rimmer a new haircut, Rimmer salutes and touches his hair with his hand. Surely he would have noticed his hair has become much longer, especially after he asked for a crew cut. (00:07:00)


Pete (1) - S8-E6

Visible crew/equipment: In the cargo hold, when Lister says 'He really loved that bird', just before Pete turns into a dinosaur, a crew member can be seen walking around in the background, despite the rest of the crew being frozen in time. (00:25:25)


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.

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.
