7 corrected entries in Back in the Red (1)

Back in the Red (1) - S8-E1

Corrected entry: We learn in this series and at the end of series 7 that the nanobots have 'resurrected' the entire crew and red dwarf itself. If this is so where is Kristine Kochanski? The Kochanski we see is from a different dimension. So when the Starbug crashland on Red Dwarf, surely Captain Hollister who had them arrested would have been a little confused as two Kochanshkis would have been present. And as Kochanski is a Navigation Officer, surely she would have had a lot of contact with the Captain?

Correction: Kryten's nanobots are intelligent enough to realise that there is already one Kochanski. It would be simple for them to ignore anything with her DNA (or Lister's as well) so you don't create another.

Back in the Red (1) - S8-E1

Corrected entry: None of the crew seem to have noticed that Kochanski's hair has grown considerably longer given the fact this episode is set straight after the events that happen in 'Nanarchy'.

Padzter

Correction: Considering the havoc the nanites have been playing, it's entirely possible they added a few inches onto her hair. And given the situation that they're in, the length of Kochanski's hair probably isn't the foremost thing on their minds.

Corrected entry: The sexual magnetism virus is red in this episode, yet it was a greeny blue colour in 'Quarantine'.

Padzter

Correction: The green-blue liquid is the luck virus and the red is the sexual magnetism virus.

Back in the Red (1) - S8-E1

Corrected entry: Not a mistake, just something I thought of. We see some rats in the ventilation ducts. Meaning that in 'The End' there was more than Frankenstein that was a non-human lifeform on board that Holly discovered. Therefore if Lister had not been stupid enough to take that photo of himself with the cat and have it developed in the ship's lab, the rats could have been found as the non-human lifeforms and Lister would not have ended up in Stasis.

Correction: Firstly, Lister deliberately took a picture of himself with the cat so he would be put into stasis, meaning an easy trip to earth. Secondly, the cat wasn't in the ducting, as the rats were, but locked in the cargo hold, and therefore protected. We can assume that the rats died.

Back in the Red (1) - S8-E1

Corrected entry: How were the Nanobots able to resurrect the crew exactly? We were told in series 7 that the Nanobots take one organism, rearrange its atoms and forms a new object with them, so what did the Nanobots use to make 1167 human beings?

Padzter

Correction: From memory the nanobots take matter and turn it into other matter. Hence they can take the planetoid which was previously Red Dwarf, and turn it back into Red Dwarf plus crew, by simply missing out (unnecessary) bits from the ship.

Back in the Red (1) - S8-E1

Corrected entry: If the entire crew has been resurrected, shouldn't there be another Kochanski because the one from starbug is the Kochanski from another Dimension?

Correction: Simple. We can assume that Kryten's nanobods know there already is a Kochanski. They didn't feel the need to resurrect another.

Back in the Red (1) - S8-E1

Corrected entry: From the first moments of Red Dwarf eight, it is established that the Dwarfers are in the prison for committing a crime. If this is the case why wasn't Lister sent to prison in the very first episode for smuggling Frankenstein on board instead of being sent into stasis?

Correction: Actually, this is explained in the book. It talks about how, after Kochanski broke up with Lister, he spent about a month trying to find the least serious offence that would get him into stasis - breaking quarantine regulations. If it hasn't already been explained, he wanted to get into stasis to get back to Earth 'instantenously' (which was his reason for joining the Corps in the first place). But, the plan went awry, creating the series we know and love.
