Stasis Leak

Written by Rob Grant & Doug Naylor
Directed by Ed Bye


The crew of Red Dwarf have found a way to go back in time three million years. Back to the freaky fungus and the luscious Kochanski - the two loves of Lister's life. Who knows? Rimmer could even find Rimmer before he dies and bring him back so he doesn't have to be dead anymore.


Chris Barrie (Rimmer), Craig Charles (Lister), Danny John-Jules (Cat), Norman Lovett (Holly), Morwenna Banks (The Lift Hostess), Sophie Doherty (Kochanski's Room Mate), C P Grogan (Kochanski), Richard Hainsworth (The Medical Orderly), Tony Hawks (The Suitcase), Mac McDonald (Captain Hollister), Mark Williams (Petersen)

Did You Know?

A scheduling mixup meant that Clare Grogan (Kochanski) was unavailable for the closing scene in which multiple versions of Lister and Rimmer (and one version of Kochanski) converge on the bunkroom. Floor manager Dona di Stefano stepped in, hiding her face behind an oversized hat!

In an unusual production quirk, the photograph of Lister and Kochanski getting married is actually a different shot each of the two times it is shown onscreen. Simple error, or deliberate easter egg?
