Trivia

Danny John-Jules, with a blue sock on his hand, provide the movement for the skutter's head. His hand was digitally edited out in post production and replaced with a CGI skutter. See more »

Goofs

Rimmer talks about being washed along by millions of gallons of water at "60 knots per hour." Knots are a measure of speed of 1 nautical mile per hour, so he should have said "60 knots." See more »

They Shouldn't Have Bothered
12 April 2009 | by See all my reviews

I've been a Red Dwarf fan since I watched the very first episode on the BBC all those years ago. I even liked the later series, even if they weren't quite so good.

I was really looking forward to these three new episodes thanks to Dave, but I expecting to be disappointed. Unfortunately, I was. It would have been best if they'd not made them.

The problem for me is that I just didn't find them funny. It seems the Sci-Fi elements of here came first and the comedy second, this never used to be the case. Also, no Norman Lovett, he was always great.

Sorry guys, what a missed opportunity. Perhaps some things are best left alone.
