    Probably occurred to most of you before but I’ve only just picked up on it.

    Holly calls Todhunter Frank when he activated the stasis field in The End. And Hollister is called Frank by that female officer in Back in the Red.

    There’s also Rimmer’s Uncle Frank. What was it with that name? (Is Hollister’s first name stated or shown to be Frank in any I or II episode?)

    And now you mention that, Rimmer’s got a brother called Frank.

    I don’t think he is given a first name until series 8.

    He is given his name in Polymorph and Timeslides.

    Frank Rimmer yes. I meant Hollister isn’t given his first name until BitR

    There’s also the washing machine Kryten names Frank in Blue, and Frank who finds baby Lister in the bar in Ouroboros.

    And Frank Saunders in the first novel.

    Shouldn’t forget to mention Saint Francis of Assisi

    Forget all this Frank stuff, Hollister and Lister both have ‘Lister’ in their name.

    And Holly and Hollister both have ‘Holl’ in their name.

    It’s like The X-Files with all its Williams.

    And Frankenstein, of course.

    I think we went through all these in the ‘idea for an episode’ thread a while back (Franks For The Memory etc.).

    Forget all this Frank stuff, Hollister and Lister both have ‘Lister’ in their name.

    Hollister. Hol. Lister. The final episode will reveal that Hollister is a combined projection of Holly and Lister, planted on Red Dwarf to ensure that Lister goes to stasis and keeps the human race alive. It’s a blatant clue, isn’t it?

    That’s the final irony, isn’t it? That Lister, the ultimate anti-authoritarian, turns out to be Captain.

    I think one of the DVD booklets points out how Frank has had a resurgence in popularity in the future.

    Theory: all the Franks are the same person. You never see them in the same room, do you?
