Trivia

The sets are mainly made out of plastic and balsa wood. This causes problems. In "The Inquisitor" there is a lot of running up and down the corridors of Red Dwarf, so to make it sound metallic the sound supervisor Keith Mayes re-recorded every footstep by walking on a metal grate in time to the actors on screen, then added an echo.

Goofs

Just before the Inquisitor controls Starbug the ship jolts. Lister moves as if the ship has been jolted, but he does so too early. See more »

Classic Dwarf
13 November 2013 | by See all my reviews

The Inquisitor is one of the best episodes of Red Dwarf through all 10 series. I am a massive Red Dwarf fan and The Inquisitor is one of my all time episodes.

The Red Dwarf Crew encounter The Inquisitor, a droid who lived to the end of time itself, and only then it figured there is no god and no afterlife. And so, The Inquisitor invented a time machine and travels throughout history and challenges every person who Ever lived to justify why they deserve to live and what they have done to lead a worthwhile life. Each person who wasted their life is then erased from history and replaced with another version of yourself who never got the chance to live. This proves to be bad for the Dwarfers as Lister and Kryten are erased and have to put things right before they are permanently deleted.
