    So apropros of nothing I was reminiscing this week about the build up to Series XII. How we saw the episode synopses and titles independently of each other at first, giving us uncertainty over whether it was “Siliconia” or “Mechocracy” which would be The One Where Everyone’s Kryten.

    It made me realise that through a combination of recurring plot elements and titles sometimes leaning on the generic side, there are actually quite a few Red Dwarf episode titles that would make good titles for completely unrelated episodes.

    How many credible combinations do we think there are? Are there any that are actually better for the episodes than their original titles?

    Examples:

    Siliconia Mechocracy

    Ouroboros Parallel Universe

    White Hole Out Of Time

    Also, I don’t think I could easily pick an episode in particular it’d be best suited for, but there are several episodes where the Dwarfers actually go to Earth, and Back to Earth isn’t one of them.

    It’d definitely suit Backwards.

    Ah, I was thinking of that one as I read through this thread – then I saw that you beat me to it!

    Polymorph Demons & Angels – because the emotion draining brings out better or worse sides of the characters.

    Meltdown Legion – because it’s about armies, and a Roman is involved.

    We don’t exist here anymore. Actually, more correctly, sir, we don’t ever have existed here before. Though this is hardly the time to be conjugating temporal verbs in the past-impossible never tense. We don’t exist here anymore.
