** The Self Loathing Beast from "[[Recap/{{Red Dwarf Season V Terrorform}} Terrorform]]" was originally built as a monster for classic ''Series/DoctorWho'' that was never used because it failed to live up to expectations. Think about that for a moment. ''Doctor Who'', a show that especially in the eighties was notorious for it's cheap special effects, rejected the monster for being too crappy. In it's ''Red Dwarf'' appearance they cut around it as much as possible, only letting us have glimpses of it or of its extremities in the hopes the audience wouldn't notice. It's probably for the best.

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: In the show, Lister's stupidity got him sentenced to stasis for quarantine violation, which is why he survived the radiation leak and ended up three million years in the future. In the novel, Lister intentionally got himself sentenced for quarantine violation, having meticulously planned out the "crime", getting caught and making sure that his violation didn't actually put anyone (including the cat whom he'd smuggled on board) in danger. Becomes less "alternate" in Season 12 where it is implied that TV-Lister also planned all of it out.

** A deleted scene shows Rimmer deliberately deciding to leave them outside. It is worth noting that the four regulars survived for over 200 years in a clapped-out Starbug while the rest of the crew are far more competent and have more modern shuttlecraft, so they stand a pretty good chance of survival.

** The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WPzdN-tH9Jk conversation about wanting to be a squirrel]] was pretty funny at the time. A few decades later after the rise of FurryFandom it's freaking hysterical.

** In "Justice", Lister confesses to his crewmates that he once stole the contents of an entire hotel room, bed included. [[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons Homer Simpson]] would later do the exact same thing, except this time it's shown onscreen.

** Don Henderson played a Simulant in "[[Recap/RedDwarfSeasonVIIBeyondAJoke Beyond a Joke]]" and dies due to Kryten's negativity being shunted into his ship, causing him to destroy his own vessel and kill himself in a fit of rage. This was Henderson's final role. He died only a few months of throat cancer after the episode aired. Oh, and his raspy voice? That was not an effect.
* HeReallyCanAct: The memorial scene from "[[Recap/{{Red Dwarf Season VIII Back In The Red Part I}} Back In The Red: Part I]]" can be considered one for Creator/CraigCharles. In a show known for taking the piss out of sci-fi in general, his performance reading to Kochanski's tombstone is genuinely poignant. Robert Llewellyn even notes this on the documentary, stating that Craig got to do some proper acting.
