I know they're not exactly canon but I always like to know where things would be placed if they were. The two main near-canon adventures are Can't Smeg, Won't Smeg and the Children in Need sketch. I had a look at both of these about a month ago and realised some flaws. Both had blue-suit hologram Rimmer with current Kochanski. They never met! Now I see I spot for placement. Just pre-series nine. In Back to Earth we have hologram Rimmer dressed as he is in these specials, and Kochanski would be there. Lister has his dreadlocks - same as Back to Earth. It all seems to fit. The Children in Need sketch takes place on a Blue Midget and Can't Smeg, Won't Smeg on Starbug. This helps as there are no problems identifying the ship's design.
