Trivia

This script was originally written as an episode of the seventh series of Red Dwarf (1988), but was dropped because the budget wouldn't stretch to the story; it was later replaced with the significantly less expensive Red Dwarf: Duct Soup (1997). For the DVD release of the seventh series, it was included as an extra feature in order to show what might have been. The first draft of the script, considered the best, was performed by Chris Barrie (Rimmer), then edited by Jem Whippey and set to a series of images drawn by Neil Maguire, in order to get as close to the original concept as possible.

A wonderfully funny shame.....
29 August 2006 | by (Utah) – See all my reviews

potential mild Season 1 and episode spoilers

I listened to this "lost" episode of Red Dwarf when I got my Series 7 DVDs and I loved it. There were a number of weak points, mostly in what would be visual gags but a few spoken jokes fell flat too, but all of that could be ironed out in the editing stage. It gives some interesting new insight into not only the surviving cat culture but also into the expansive GELF race, they're not all psychopathic pignosed bean bag chairs.

Chris Barrie's narration and character impersonations were great, a close second to Jim Dale's work in the Harry Potter audio books, at least on my list.

It's a shame because unfortunately the story was far to expensive to produce, particularly with the different GELF breeds.

It would have been great to see produced but alas it was not meant to be.
