As Rimmer is taking Kryten for a driving lesson in Starbug they find themselves being whisked away through a time hole and end up on Earth, where time is running backwards.
Did You Know?
In order to explain why Kryten is played by Robert Llewellyn instead of David Ross. Rob Grant and Doug Naylor wrote into the opening "Star Wars" style opening crawl that Kryten had crashed Lister's space-bike into an asteroid and his remains were found by Lister, whom rebuilt Kryten, but could not find his former personality. Kryten had a new outfit and now had an Canadian accent. See more
