Trivia: The scene where Rimmer comes face to face with the Grim Reaper was a last minute change/addition to the script. Because it was done at the last minute, there was no time to cast an actor for the part (nor any money to pay one). The part of Death was played in this episode by producer/director Ed Bye.
Trivia: There is a scene in this episode where Starbug flies up a rat's backside. In the original script it wasn't a rat at all, but Frankenstein, Lister's pet cat and mother to all of the Cat People. However, for technical and budgetary reasons, it proved quicker and cheaper to use GCI (Computer-Generated Imaging) to create a rat rather than a cat.
Trivia: In Greek mythology, the God Apollo fell in love with Cassandra and gave her the gift of telling the future. Despite this, she refused to return her love to him, so Apollo declared no-one would believe Cassandra's prophecies. In this episode, Cassandra is a computer who predicts the future and Rimmer does not believe her.
