Top 10 moments of Red Dwarf V

Rimmerworld, cavaliers and Lister with implants. It was tough picking the best bits - but we only gone and done it...

Lister

10. Rimmer gets cavalier

The only way off the dreaded hopeless void that was created out of Rimmer's self-loathing was by coming over all Gok Wan and boosting his confidence. Not only did the fellas' attempts to raise his spirits creep us out to the point of wanting an acid bath with a wire wool loofah, it also proved that inside Rimmer's troubled soul lurks the purple-hatted cavaliers of his inner confidence. Not something we were expecting, to be honest.

9. Good news/bad news

The Red Dwarf lads may be pretty basic life forms in many ways, with their simple pleasures and their limited cultural know-how, but it turns out things could have been a lot worse. When their angelic and demonic versions materialised it was clear that the alternative versions of the crew were either poetry spouting sissies or spit 'n' drool lunatics who considered cinema hotdogs a delicacy. All of a sudden the originals seem positively charming…

8. Lister gets implants

Say what you like about Lister, you could never accuse him of being an active sort. It was a bit of a turn-up then, to see him turned into a ruthless killing machine - but less so when we learned he was essentially a stabbier version of a remote controlled car. Cat was less than pleased by Listie's frenzy's impact on his collar and got his own back when he was handed the control pad. Stop hitting yourself, Dave…

7. All you need is luck

Until Quarantine we had always thought that luck was a fleeting mistress, a note on the breeze, a thing that happened to randy footballers and dull people who vowed to spend their lottery winnings on creosote. Turns out, though, that it is in fact a virus, much like the common cold but with more likelihood of getting you laid. Doesn't last long though, so if you do catch it probably a good idea to get down the bookies sharpish…

6. Game Over

We certainly weren't expecting to see the crew kark it, like actually properly dead as they were at the start of Back To Reality. However, that wasn't the weirdest bit. If they thought the squid killing them was odd, that was nothing compared to finding out it had all been part of one big video game and that they'd basically just missed the obvious clue and had to log out. If only they'd known they could have found a cheat to make Rimmer less of a dork…

5. Rimmerworld

Ever wondered what Rimmer's psyche would look like? Well, thanks to Terrorform we got to see it in all its murky, swamp-laden glory. It was never going to be a sunny Caribbean island, but the sheer depths of the crater-filled dump made it obvious that, geographically speaking, Rimmer's subconscious is about as appealing as a Holiday Inn in Luton. Probably not a place to go for a romantic getaway…
