Trivia

"Bodyswap" was the first entire episode of Red Dwarf not to be filmed in front of a studio audience. This was because of the fact that Craig Charles and Chris Barrie had to dub much of their dialogue because their characters switched bodies. The final edit was played to a small audience to provide the laughter track. See more »

Quotes

Rimmer: Look, I know it's a stupid idea and there's a high chance of you being a gibbering vegetable for the rest of your life, but if the rest of your life's only 30 seconds, what the hell?
