Trapped aboard a disintegrating ship, Rimmer abandons his crewmates, taking the only remaining escape pod. As he accelerates towards a nearby wormhole, he discovers the pod has no steering controls.


Chris Barrie (Rimmer), Craig Charles (Lister), Danny John-Jules (Cat), Robert Llewellyn (Kryten), Liz Hickling (Rogue Simulant)

Did You Know?

It was originally intended that Rimmerworld would follow immediately on from Gunmen of the Apocalypse - with the economies of shooting back-to-back meaning that Liz Hickling could return as the Simulant, while a gag was constructed around the Cat wearing the same outfit. But the order was switched when it was realised that the ending (which would originally have featured the "future" Lister appearing from the toilet alive and well) could instead be cut short to lead directly into the closer, Out of Time.

That was not Chris Barrie's bottom.
