    Okay... how about...

    Holly was played by Norman Lovett...

    In 1066, Britain was invaded by the Normans....

    ... who were French.


    I feel I'm stretching it a bit...

    If you can have that, then I would suggest the end of Backwards when the Cat chat.

    We have found a lot of references/idioms yet, but there's still a large dozen of them in RD.
    I give you a clue: The Last Day.

    In the dressing room of the pub in Backwards

    Kryten: "In 50 years time the second world war will start, backwards. Hilter will retreat across Europe, liberate France and Poland, disband the Third Reich and bog off back to Austria"

    Doesn't Lister say in an early series (Series 2, Thanks For The Memory I think) about his mum or someone "... headbutting my head master because I came bottom in Fench"

    It was Future Echoes in series 1. It was the scene where Lister is showing old photographs to Cat. ("That's just the Jupiter Rise. Everyone takes that shot.")

    Spot on, don't know where I got Thanks For The Memory from ... especially as in my head I was picturing the viewing dome scene in Better Than Life, but even that seems daft come to think of it

    Is that the observation dome, where Rimmer contemplates the passing of his father? If so, you're actually right!

    Because the same place is used in Thanks For The Memory, after Rimmer discovers that his memories of Lise Yates are all fake.

    Everything surrounding the Queen is a reference really, considering she is... well... French. Not sure quite why the Queen of Camelot is French, except for the purpose of Lister's lusting... no that explains it really, all things considered ;-)

    Additionally, I think it's time I go into smug mode with that scorecard 8) Either that or I need to get out and get a life.

    Was the Thirty Years War he mentioned just beforehand also an example of us warring with the French? My knowledge of that era of history is a bit rusty and I'm too lazy to actually look it up so if someone can confirm or correct it would be helpful.
