Trivia

The tank Kryten uses in the seventh series episode "Beyond a Joke" had previously been used in the James Bond film GoldenEye (1995). The number shown on the tank, 343, is the same in both. The tank arrived late after being caught in traffic on the M25 motorway, and the explosion it created when fired was enough to set off car alarms and provoke many complaints from nearby residents.

Goofs

Kochanski states that Hue is the third largest city in Vietnam; Hue is actually the fifth largest. She also mispronounces Hue ("hwah", rather than "hway") despite making a point that it is pronounced differently to how it is spelt. See more »

Quotes

[Kryten has invaded Kochanski's "Pride and Prejudice" VR game with a tank]
Kryten: Perhaps I didn't make myself clear. I said supper is ready.
