Trivia

The episode "Backwards" sees the Red Dwarf crew visit a version of Earth where time runs in the opposite direction. As a result - all the guest cast have their lines reversed. One sequence involves the owner of a pub allegedly chastising Kryten for starting a fight. In fact he actually says: "You are a stupidly square-headed bald git, aren't you eh?" He then turns to Rimmer and says: "You, I'm pointing at you, but I'm not actually addressing you. I'm addressing the one prat in the entire country who's actually bothered to get hold of this recording, turn it around and actually work out the rubbish that I'm saying. What a poor sad life he's got!" See more »

Goofs

Although most of the shots of the outdoor scenes are mirrored (lettering on car numberplates and shops appears backwards), a couple of shots aren't: the shot of the white van Rimmer and Kryten ride in as it goes backwards down the street and the shots of the van that Lister and Cat get a lift in.
