* DomesticApplianceDisaster: Dave Lister once tried to press his least slovenly clothes into a fit state to impress - or so he thinks - the female crew the Dwarfers are about to rescue. Discovering he has burnt an iron-shaped hole in his garment, Lister shrugs, puts it on anyway, and spray-paints the skin underneath with an almost- matching color of spray-paint, so as to conceal the hole...

After series VIII finished in 1999, various factors - primarily repeated attempts to get a feature film off the ground - meant the show was off-air until a three-part, PostModern, movie-length miniseries ''Back To Earth'' aired across the Easter Weekend of 2009 on digital channel Dave[note]A free-to-air channel owned by UKTV, which operates several free and subscription channels[/note] putting an end to the complete lack of any new TV or book output for a decade. ''[=BtE=]'' broke digital TV viewership records at the time of airing, signalling that the show still had an audience after a decade of TV absence; not long after, Dave commissioned a full 6 episode "tenth" series entitled ''Red Dwarf X'', which eventually aired in 2012.

* SoundToScreenAdaptation: ''Red Dwarf'' was born as a short serial in the radio comedy show ''SonOfCliche'', also written by Grant/Naylor. The parent "series" on radio was called ''Dave Hollis: Space Cadet'' and contained sketches and ideas later recycled for the TV series.

* GoMadFromTheIsolation: Hudzen 10. After millions of years following after Kryten (so as to replace him), his "sanity chip" has been completely worn out, leaving him a deranged psychopath fully willing to harm a human.



** Rimmer's parents religion is 7th Day Advent Hoppists in 'The Last Day', in 'Lemons', it's completely different.

* DrunkWithPower: In the episode "Officer Rimmer", eternal prat Arnold Judas Rimmer is promoted to officer after he weasels his way into a captain's good graces (in fact, he was trying to blow up the captain's ship, which accidentally saved him from an asteroid belt). He immediately starts instituting a blatant class system on the ship with the other crew members relegated to crappy service elevators and corridors while Rimmer opens an exclusive officer's lounge and reclines in luxury. Then he goes one step further by creates dozens of duplicates of himself to order around and sing his praises. By the end, he's forced to give up his promotion when he inadvertently creates a Rimmer-hybrid monster and has to beg the others for help.

* CaptainsLog: Holly would start the episodes of the first two series with a sort-of CaptainsLog introduction. Captain Hollister also keeps a diary of some kind.

* CharacterAsHimself: "Timeslides" has a special guest star credited at the start of the episode: ''UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler''. True to their word, Hitler appears through use of StockFootage of his Nuremburg speech, which Lister interrupts.

* ContinuityNod: In the episode "Quarantine", Kryten furnishes Rimmer with a copy of the Space Corps Directives manual, when he accuses Kryten of making up the directives he quotes - this act drives the plot of the episode. Following this, Rimmer often quotes directives himself. As a RunningGag, he always gets them wrong (In the most hilarious manner possible) and is corrected by Kryten.

* ClicheStorm: Lampshaded in series XI when a bunch of evil simuloids use TimeTravel to [[ConquerorFromTheFuture conquer the Earth's past]], and Lister calls them horribly cliché. This continues later in the episode (paraphrased):
