to:

* ActorAllusion: The crew meet Creator/CraigCharles, and Rimmer asks for his own sitcom (Chris Barrie starred in ''Series/TheBrittasEmpire'', which alluded to Brittas having a similar event occur in his past to Rimmer).

Added DiffLines:

* BigBudgetBeefUp: Totally subverted. The scenes on Red Dwarf ''look'' spectacular, but this is mostly thanks to general advancements in special effects. The three-parter actually had a minuscule budget that was made up for by much of the crew working for free. This is probably why the story takes place in ''real life'' at all.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Foreshadowing}}: When the clerk at a sci-fi shop mentions an event in [[UnInstallment Series IX]] where Kryten rushed to tell Lister that Kochanski had been sucked out of an airlock, Kryten is shown giving a rather guilty expression. He later confesses that he helped Kochanski leave Red Dwarf and made up her death as a cover story.

Added DiffLines:

* TheCameo: [[spoiler: Chloë Annett turns up as Kochanski in a single-scene dream/fantasy sequence, her last appearance in the series to date.]]
* EnhanceButton: One scene features a wildly over-the-top parody of this.


Added DiffLines:

* PutOnABus: Everyone who was on the reconstituted Red Dwarf except the main foursome.


Added DiffLines:

* TheUnreveal: The show resumes in its usual four-character format with no mention or explanation about the previous season's cliffhanger ending.


Added DiffLines:



* WholePlotReference: The mini-series is a long parody of ''Bladerunner.''

Added DiffLines:

* OtherMeAnnoysMe: Lister manages to complete a trifecta of being annoyed at other versions of himself... by adding [[Creator/CraigCharles his own actor!]]


* WhatMeasureIsANonhuman: Katerina Bartikovsky argues there's no moral problem with murdering a hologram. She is a hologram who wants to kill Lister, also a hologram. [[spoiler: So he kills her instead.]]
