Red Dwarf

Polymorph - S3-E3

Corrected entry: When Lister is preparing the meal, he puts all the ingredients into the microwave and closes the door. When he opens it again, a plate has magically appeared inside the microwave.



New this month Correction: Lister also dumps a lot of curry powder into the microwave, and when he reopens the door after baking, there is a full meal prepared. Clearly, this is not a mistake, but in fact part of the futuristic technology used to create the meal. The plate was likely generated along with the rest of the meal.

Casual Person

Polymorph - S3-E3

Corrected entry: The snake changes shape and its stripes disappear as it leaps at Lister.



Correction: As the snake is a polymorph there is no reason why it did not just change from a small snake to a large snake when it jumped at Lister.


Polymorph - S3-E3

Corrected entry: In the episode "Polymorph", the 'punchline' at the end of the episode is that the crew of Red Dwarf think they're safe, because they've killed the polymorph creature. But the 'plot twist' is that there was a SECOND polymorph on board Red Dwarf - and the last we see of it is when the Polymorph takes on the appearance of Lister and grins to the camera. But it is never explained what became of this second polymorph. For all we know, it could still be lurking on board.

Correction: According to Doug Naylor in the Re-Mastered edition of this episode, the second Polymorph hid in Lister's underpants drawers and died of starvation due to its stupidity.

Lister: Get real, man. Most eunuchs have got more balls than you.



Kryten tells everyone that the matter paddle transmits matter in digital form from one place to another at the speed of light - he is very clear on this point. He then locates Waxworld, which is 200,000 light years away. Okay - so when they use the matter paddle to transmit themselves to Waxworld, why doesn't it take them 200,000 years to get there?



The actor who plays the original Kryten, in 'Kryten', also turns up later as the voice of Talkie Toaster.
