Did You Know?

Due to the removal of the usual opening titles for the "Tongue Tied" dream sequence, the initial broadcast of this episode did not show its title onscreen - although it was added in for the later home releases.

Danny John-Jules later released a re-recorded version of "Tongue Tied" as a single, reaching #17 in the UK charts in October 1993. The single was accompanied by an elaborate video featuring the rest of the main Red Dwarf cast.
