Stoke Me A Clipper - S7-E2

Continuity mistake: When the Nazi commander throws the crocodile at Ace, the yellow curtain is behind ace as he falls. In the next shot, the yellow curtain is in front of him. It is clear he did not fall through the curtain as it does not move as he hits the floor. (00:01:00)

Beyond a Joke - S7-E6

Revealing mistake: When the simulant hits Able over the head with the steel bar, you can clearly see it bend. He hits him a second time a few moments later and it is straight again. (00:14:45)

Polymorph - S3-E3

Audio problem: When Lister says "he was in sickbay for a week", once the shot changes we once again hear him say "for a week". Evidently, the line was intended to carry on into the next shot but wasn't edited out. (00:08:40)

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.

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.
