    smoke me a kipper

    Here is my idea for an episode.

    The crew come across an old space station. inside they find a stasis booth. After opening the stasis booth they don’y believe it. It seems to be Hollister, but quite a bit older than they remember. Hollister managed to survive the accident and got off the Red Dwarf to get help, I will cut a long story short, at the end of the episode Hollister makes a death bed confession. It was he who caused the accident not Rimmer. He also tells Rimmer that When the accident occured, Yvonne Mcguder was on planet leave so did not get killed. She was pregnant with Rimmers baby.

    That would be the start and end of the episode, there would need to be a chain of events in between, but I think you have the gist.

    Thank’s for reading smeg heads. Smoke me a kipper I’ll be back for breakfast.

    Idea for film extravaganza. Plot, thus: Malcolm McDowell is trapped in the future. He’s being pursued by a cyberpunk from the past, played by Rutger Hauer.

    I’ve got one:

    “Nice”

    Starbug crash lands onto an icy planet, where they discover the frozen remains of Bruce Forsyth. They unthaw him, and he tells them that Earth was frozen in 2641 by Simulant replicas of Torvill and Dean. He only survived because he had been playing dead for the last 300 years. At the end of the episode he trips over a box of paperwork and is flushed out of an airlock.

    Also Lister irons his trousers with curry, because he likes ironing his trousers. Also curry.

    Austria, 1908, a young man is rejected from studying at the prestigious Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna.

    Japan, 1945, two atomic bombs are dropped on the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, killing an estimated 226,000 people, half of those deaths occur within the first twenty-four hours.

    A chain of events occurred in between, but what happened, we’ll never know.

    And now, stand by your pre-packaged croutons and wait for the signal to turn, it’s REEVES & MORTIMER.

    After opening the stasis booth they don’t believe it.

    It’s Victor Meldrew! And who should be in the other stasis pod, but his ex-neighbour, Patrick Trench! Cursing his luck at being trapped in the distant future with his nemesis, Patrick screams in frustration, causing a ship-quake. The crew quickly escort the two 20th century men back aboard Starbug, and Kryten notices a slime trail leading in the same direction. Before he has time to tell the rest of the crew, a metal beam hits him on the head and knocks him out.
    With Kryten out cold until he can be repaired, Cat and Lister piloting and Rimmer navigating, Victor and Patrick are left in the mid-section on their own and have an amusing argument about whose fault the situation is. Fancying a cup of tea, Victor heads into the kitchen. Off screen we hear: “What in the name of bloody hell?!”
    Cut to- Victor with a baby Giant Death Worm trying to attach itself to his face. Patrick rushes in and valiantly rips it off him, before heading to the airlock, blasting both himself and the creature out into space. Before he closes the airlock door, he mentions to Victor that death by asphyxiation would be preferable to the rest of his life trapped in deep space with Mr. Meldrew.
    “Oh, by the way,” Victor says to Lister, as they conduct a remembrance service for Patrick, “there was another person on board the space station – she was in a stasis booth on the level above us. A rather hoity-toity young lady with a strange name.”
    “Kochanski? Was it Kochanski?”
    “Ah yes, that’s it. Said she was Scottish but she didn’t sound it.”
    “Quick, we’ve gotta get back there to rescue her.”
    Suddenly, the space station Starbug is flying towards explodes.
    “I don’t believe it!” cries Lister. Rimmer rolls his eyes and passes him an accident report form. Lister looks at the camera and shrugs.

    I’ve always loved the theory that Rimmer didn’t actually cause the accident. Holly just implanted a fake memory in his head so he’d feel guilty enough to stick it out as the ship’s hologram.

    The boys from the dwarf pick up a signal from a crashed derelict on a planetoid, when they go to inspect the signal they find out that the crashed vessel is Red Dwarf itself from the future after being caught in a spatial anomaly, and they need to work out how it happened to avoid the same fate as their future selves.

    Between series 6 -7, in 97 my brother and I wrote an red dwarf episode called ‘CATFLAP’.

    After Cat has a nightmare of being made to embrace a religion of uncool clothing, he is transported to a world where the rest of cat race survived and are split into two factions. The Geeky side who worship Dwayne Dibbly style life style and The Cool side, so cool in fact there is only one, KINGKATT who is genocidal believing he has the only right to live as he is cool and no one else is. Yep, pretty clunky I admit. The sub plot involved Lister and Kryten falling out ( this was written before series 7’s Kryten’s squeaky persona). A very hung over Lister feels Kryten talked down to him at recent encounter with usual sci fi peril and insults Kryten, Kryten then refuses to speak. Rimmer, loving this fuels the fire and gets Kryten to fight Lister in a boxing match, to settle their differences. Lister refuses to hit Kryten and Kryten can’t hit Lister due to his programming. Kryten’s refusal to assist, causes Rimmer to make decisions as Lister and Kryten are literal ‘not talking’ through out and a lot of mistakes occur. Kryten’s constant unsubtle nods and pointing to Rimmer not to do something without being seen by Lister doesn’t help matters. The story ends with The KINGKATT’ plan backfiring due his vanity and Lister quipping ‘Ever Cat must have his day (written before every dog line in series viii)’ Kryten instantly punches him and replies ‘ Sorry sir, I just couldn’t let that one go’. Yes its pretty awful, however the inclusion of Kryten hitting Lister and rumours of other Cat Characters in series XI it’s very intriguing, look ing forward to seeing what Doug does with similar material.

    My 9 year old son has become quite the Red Dwarf fan, in fact the idea of a spaceship with a catman and a robot and hologram and a silly hero feels like Ulysess 31 meets Rentaghost. He asks that I tell him a Red Dwarf bed time story every night. Must have done this for at least 6 months. Had stories of hologram vampires who feed off light, Rimmer being in a intergalactic Disco championship (where bad dancing wins). Lister bathing in curry. An Evil Ace Rimmer. Cat’s Fashionable clothes coming to life.hard light doubles of the crew try to take over the ship. Waiting to see if any of these appear in the rest of series xi or xii.

    A fan of Red Dwarf™ sues the JMC™ for stealing all of his ideas despite overwhelming evidence that the concepts existed three million years™ prior. Nevertheless, it falls to Rimmer™ to mount a defence as the company’s representative by default. He realises, however, that if he loses, his subsequent redundancy money could easily afford an afterdeath™ better than anything Red Dwarf™ can offer and tries to throw the case, accidentally winning in the process.

    The fan takes his compensation in *cut to credits™*

    One idea for Timewave,relating to the synopsis:

    The crew go back in TIME to 90s America where Rob Grant and Doug Naylor are pitching the US Red Dwarf and being referred to as the WAVE of negativity. Donald Trump turns up for some reason and takes them all aboard a ship he owns and makes their criticism illegal on there. He is then hit by a WAVE and erased from TIME itself unfortunately.

    bloodteller

    if they do get hit by a Gay Ray, then the real question is- if rimmer and lister fuck, does it count as inter-species sex? because rimmer technically isn’t a human, he’s just sort of a big bit of light

    ‘Bunkmates’

    Lister shits his bed and is forced to share the bottom bunk with Rimmer for a month while Kryten deep cleans his mattress. Initially reluctant, they discover they are the perfect spooning size and shape for each other and begin to spend their days in bed together as well as nights. This has no impact on the running of the shop but they become happier and more content. Some time later they notice they haven’t seen Cat for a long time and eventually find him dead in the bottom of a cupboard where he crawled away to die. Kryten is very homophobic about Lister and Rimmer even though they aren’t necessarily gay, just snuggle-buddy-huggy-bed-pals, but tells he doesn’t like it but will tolerate it, despite him tutting and groaning every time they interact. In the end they realise they can switch Kryten off and switch Kryten off, and bury Cat under the apple tree in the botanical gardens.

    ‘Holowe’en’

    The hologram personality library is infected by a spooky ghostish computer virus after Kryten accidentally holds a seance while testing some candles, and Kryten’s body is taken over by the disembodied holo-personality of George McIntyre. Kryten/George vows to kill Lister to render Rimmer’s hologrammatic ‘mission’ obsolete so that McIntyre can reclaim his position as ship’s hologram. He also wants to kill Cat due to being severely allergic to cats. Non-specific spooky murderous hijinks ensue for a specially-extended Halloween running time of 45 minutes without adverts, although ultimately it concludes with a Welshman being purged from existence forever in quite a heartbreaking and tragic way. At the end Lister opens a cupboard and Sarah Greene staggers out looking ravaged and haunted with a shock of white hair. They all look at each other and shrug comedically, except Kryten who doesn’t have any arms any more as a result of however they got rid of McIntyre. Spooky organ music version of the theme tune at the end.

    ‘Rimplification’

    It dawns on the crew that nobody is 100% certain which version of Rimmer they are currently living with and how strange it is that he can recall events from two apparently separate incarnations of himself. After much cajoling, Rimmer eventually owns up to being Camille and the others are left to contemplate the fact that a version of Rimmer who fits into multiple Rimmer timelines without upsetting continuity is the thing they all desired the most. There is a lot of soul-searching and then nobody mentions it ever again, although Kryten occasionally stands silently watching Rimmer sleeping at night and over time it becomes clear they are all imagining him in different Rimmer costumes (Lister sees the blue quilted jacket, Kryten sees the green suit and hat and Cat sees the cycling shorts and shirt from series 2) which has no impact on the storylines whatsoever but throws up lots of apparent continuity errors for fans of the show to sweat over on the internet.

    “Dead Dwarf: Lister doesn’t take a cat on board, and dies in a radiation leak.”

    but if he’d died in the radiation leak he would have never existed in the first place because he needed to exist on Starbug in the future to take his baby self back to the past to leave under the pool table in order for him to exist.

    Curiosity Killed The Cat

    The Cat embarks on one of his ‘general investigations’ of the Cargo deck. On his travels, he’s run over by Rimmer. Rimmer rushes him to the medi-bay where Chippy tells him that the Cat’s injuries are so severe that he recommends he be put to sleep. Rimmer agrees and Cat is put down. Rimmer then has to get a new cat that looks similar in the hope that Lister never realises.

    The episode swiftly becomes even more controversial than Timewave. Did Rimmer deliberately murder Cat? Is the episode advocating euthanasia? Is the search for a new cat hideously racist, especially the scene with the blackface?

    Everyone logs onto G+T to rip the episode to pieces, apart from one regular user who doesn’t think it’s offensive at all. So that’s alright, then.

    ‘Rim Her’

    While wiping Lister’s anus after a particularly aggressive vindaloo, Kryten discovers a talent for rimming. Despite their initial reluctance, the rest of the crew allow him to practice his newfound skill on them as well, and soon getting rimmed by Kryten’s soft little mechanoid tongue becomes a regular part of daily life on board ship. Kochanski returns quite by chance and on her first night back Kryten goes into her quarters and starts rimming her while she is asleep. Kochanski wakes up and is so horrified by this sexual assault that she feeds him into the ship’s incinerator. The next day the others explain to her that they had an unspoken agreement with Kryten that he could rim them all because ‘he got so much out of it and he was really good at it’. Kochanski stares at them in disbelief. They all realise how odd it must seem that they let a robot lick their anuses each night and agree to never refer to it Kryten ever again. Kochanski’s expression of incredulous horror remains for the rest of the series.

    We Wish You A Smeggy Christmas

    It’s Christmas Eve and Rimmer is refusing to allow Lister time-off from doing the annual cargo check to enjoy the yuletide season. Rimmer is also very rude to Hoagy the Roguey who’s now homeless and has to resort to performing christmas carols and giving hand-jobs to earn money.

    Later that night, Rimmer is haunted by the resurrected hologram of his brother Howard who urges him to change his uncharitable and grumpy ways. Rimmer refuses to listen. Howard engages the services of Lister and Kryten (played by Robert Llewellyn) to find out why Rimmer is such a cunt.

    Using magic, Lister takes Rimmer back to Christmas Past and a pre-accident Red Dwarf where they observe Young Rimmer avoiding the festivities shortly after the humiliation of Gazpacho Soup Day. They then see his heart being broken by Yvonne McGruder a few Christmases later. A tearful young Rimmer sings A Winter’s Tale by David Essex. The studio audience shift uncomfortably in their seats, but clap anyway.

    We return to the present where Kryten attempts to show Rimmer the magic and joy of Christmas Present. They all sit around the table and exchange dialogue about the inventor of formica for several minutes. It is very funny.

    Then the Grim Reaper (Ed Bye) arrives, warning Rimmer of his untimely demise in Christmas Future. Rimmer correctly points out that he’s already dead and the episode kind of ends abruptly without any real conclusion. After the end credits, Lister looks at the camera and says “Incidentally, a smeggy Christmas to all of you at home”.

    The Cat is absent from this episode as he doesn’t give a shit about Rimmer. Also Danny is involved in a contract dispute with Doug at the time.

    Barack In The Red: Part One

    When the crew stumble across a research facility that claims to have resurrected several former US presidents and cured them from evil, it’s up to the crew to decide whether to trust them or leave them to die from something that is suddenly going to coincidentally show up and kill them all in a few hours. Luckily, any moral ambiguity is eliminated when it turns out that was all bollocks and they’re all actually robots, or something.

    Baracus In The Red: Part Two

    On their way back from the facility, the bemused Boys From The Dwarf are stunned and delighted to realise that some mutated DVD-cleaning fluid brings their favourite TV shows to life, allowing much-loved fictional characters to step out of the screen and into reality. But when an A-Team marathon heralds the arrival of Bosco B.A. ‘Bad Attitude’ Baracus, he immediately deems the crew to all be fools and insists on pitying them incessantly until they all eat at least seventeen Snickers bars.

One evening she finds Kryten’s rogue portable penis in the drawer of her bedside table and begins making use of its stimulating properties. Lister eventually learns of this and struggles to come to terms with the idea of his grandmother getting fucked by Kryten, even if Kryten wasn’t present or aware of this. Rimmer and Cat share a look that tacitly says ‘fucking hell, it’s turned into the Lister and Kryten Show again, how 1997’ and wander off to play cards in the green room until they’re needed on set again in a few years.

    However, preconceptions are dashed after the the youthful theologist leads the episode into a thoughtful and nuanced discussion of Islam, its history and its place in the modern world.

    They realise that they have destroyed the only copy of ‘You’ve Got Mail’ in the Universe – but the crew manage to find a functioning time drive on a nearby derelict and travel back to Los Angeles, 1997 where they sneak into the Warner Bros production office, intending to steal a shooting script for the movie.

    On the way in they accidentally push Tom Hanks out of a sixth storey window and he falls to his death. The production is cancelled and consequently the crew return to a timeline where ‘You’ve Got Mail’ was never released at all.

    ANAL-MEAD & HYMEN

    Lister and the crew become trapped in a VR simulation of a deranged message board from the early 21st Century, brought to life, where the posters’ every whim (and, indeed, quim) are met, not unlike a certain total-immersion videogame from a previous encounter. However, this time, instead of his own warped psyche putting the Dwarfers in danger, Rimmer finds himself at the mercy of the deeply depraved Doom-mongers while Lister wonders why everyone suddenly needs a slash…meanwhile, the Cat rolls around in his own doings to avoid passing the smell test and Kryten manages to break out of the board only to find himself in a place where the horrors multiply tenfold…mumsnet. :o

    ‘Glue’

    Still reeling from the untimely death of her troubled teenage son, Doc Newton channels her energies into an outreach programme designed to deter solvent abuse among the young on board ship. After Captain Hollister refuses to fund the programme, Newton tirelessly takes on all the extra work herself, giving up evenings and weekends to speak to youth groups, spread awareness and counsel substance abusers face to face. Six months later, her efforts have not made the slightest difference to the levels of solvent abuse on board ship, except to raise further awareness of it as a mildly distracting recreational pasttime and introducing new demographics to the hobby. Completely discouraged, and still struggling to cope with Ryan’s overdose, she slashes her wrists in the main water tank. Meanwhile, Cat and Kryten’s enamel pin collecting becomes a little TOO competitive!

    SILLY CONE EAR

    After a massive bender to celebrate Kryten’s last day before his impending deactivation, Lister is confused when he wakes up to find a large red conical plastic traffic-management tool stuck in one of his aural orifices. Meanwhile, it’s the policewoman’s helmet and suspenders that Cat doesn’t understand.

    THE BEND

    When the Cat discovers a blocked toilet on Z-Deck, Rimmer fingers Lister as the culprit, dubbing him a “scuzzy space bum powered by beer and curry”, and promptly dispatches Kryten on maintenance duty. To the mechano man’s surprise, he discovers the mummified corpse of George McIntyre clogging up the u-bend.

    THE LAST LAY

    Before Lister can allow his social conscience to do the moral thing and rid the universe of date raping, he can’t resist taking one last swig of sexual magnetism to get Kochanski’s knickers back off. Rimmer provides the choc ices.
