Fathers and Suns

Written & Directed by Doug Naylor


Every year Lister sends himself a Father's Day card to celebrate the fact that he is his own father; but when Rimmer points out he's been a lousy father to himself, Lister decides to do something about it. Meanwhile, Rimmer and Kryten install a new computer: the beautiful - but lethally logical - Pree.


Chris Barrie (Rimmer), Craig Charles (Lister), Danny John-Jules (Cat), Robert Llewellyn (Kryten), Rebecca Blackstone (Pree), Kerry Shale (Medi-Bot & Taiwan Tony)

Did You Know?

Although uncredited as such, Rebecca Blackstone (Pree) also voices one of the vending machines during the "Chinese whispers" scenes.

The "ramscoop" at the front of Red Dwarf, named as such in the novels, is labelled here onscreen for the first time.

This episode was briefly considered to be the tenth series opener, but in the end Trojan was kept in its original recorded place.
