A few months ago, after attending the recording of episode five of series ten of Red Dwarf, I started a sporadic rewatch of every episode of the series. While watching the opening titles, a couple of queries entered my mind; Which clips are featured in the montage sequences at the start of series III onwards? How many clips are there in total? What episodes are the clips from? You get the idea.
So, I set about making notes. These notes largely consisted of just lists of clips, with the title of the episode they were from (or, in the case of certain model shots, were originally featured in) in brackets at the side.
It’s still being written, but we now have the Red Dwarf X title sequence to look at, as well, so I decided it was time to actually do something with my notes…
