Trivia: Red Dwarf's producer/director Ed Bye was taken seriously ill on the day of the studio recording of the episode "Dimension Jump". Paul Jackson, who was in 1990-91 effectively Ed Bye's boss, stepped in to cover, although he hadn't directed a TV show for about 7 years. But look at the credits for this episode...no one bothered to update or change them, and Paul Jackson was never credited for his work. The credits still say "Produced and directed by Ed Bye" even though on this one occasion, they weren't.
Factual error: While it is true that lithium carbonate can be used to treat depression and other psychiatric disorders, it cannot be administered in gaseous form. It is a very stable salt and only starts to form vapour at 1,310 degress Celcius. Spraying it about as a 'mood stabliser' at that temperature, as Kryten does, is going to kill everyone on the spot.
Question: When Holly is saying about how he has changed music he says that because of the 2 new notes he's made instruments would be bigger. "Triangles will have four sides. Piano keyboards the length of zebra crossings. Course, women will have to be banned from playing the cello." I don't understand the joke about the cello part. Could someone please tell me what he means?
