Emohawk - Polymorph II

Written by Rob Grant & Doug Naylor
Directed by Andy de Emmony


The Dwarfers need replacement engine parts from the fearsome stomach-churningly ugly "Kinitawowi". But the GELF tribe are interested in only one trade: Lister must marry the chief's daughter.

Did You Know?

Another Series VI episode to go out with a different title than originally intended, in this case it was because Polymorph II - Emohawk was deemed to sound too much like a football score!

One of the GELFs in this episode was played by Ainsley Harriott, prior to his fame as a TV chef on Can't Cook, Won't Cook. He would of course return to the Red Dwarf universe in the Can't Smeg, Won't Smeg special for the tenth anniversary in 1998.

Meanwhile, Lister's GELF bride, Steven Wickham, would return to play a different type of genetically engineered creature - the BEGG Chief - in Series X's Entangled.
