Trivia

An additional scene could have explained how a reverse audience can understand The Sensational Reverse Brothers. Rimmer has apparently altered his Light Bee so that he can speak certain phrases backwards like Kryten can. The idea was continued in a cut from a following extra cut scene. Rimmer also mentions that they're due to go on the backwards Opportunity Knocks, hosted by boB esuohknoM. See more »

Goofs

Although most of the shots of the outdoor scenes are mirrored (lettering on car numberplates and shops appears backwards), a couple of shots aren't: the shot of the white van Rimmer and Kryten ride in as it goes backwards down the street and the shots of the van that Lister and Cat get a lift in.
