Crash-landing on a foreign planet the crew shelter from a sand-storm in what turns out to be a rehabilitation unit. Here Professor Shaul Telford has cryogenically preserved Hitler, Stalin, Messalina and Vlad the Impaler, having cured them of their evil tendencies. Cat is annoyed that he cannot tempt Messalina whilst Lister angers Rimmer by jamming with a very camp Hitler but when all the Red Dwarf crew discover that someone is trying to murder them they wonder how successful the experiment has been - and whether Cat can be trusted not to side with the psychopathic killer.Written by

The real Adolf Hitler made an appearance in the series 3 episode Red Dwarf: Timeslides (1989), where Lister entered a photograph of him speaking at the 1934 Nuremberg Rally (archive footage shown with Lister superimposed in) and proceeded to heckle him and then (offscreen) get into a fight with him. However in this episode they actually bond with each other. See more »
