Precisely slainmonkey - the episode was definitely tightly written, involving all four of the crew. I didn't really notice any flabby, unneeded storylines like the phone bit in Trojan. In terms of the callbacks, I've just remembered one from series 4 (and series 6 too!). But believe me, apart from one at the very end (which I thought was a bit OTT), the callbacks are just quick jokes for the fans. Quick blink-and-you'll-miss-them callbacks but, as fans, they were very very funny. Now I've had more time to think about it, and thinking about how it'd be in the finished form, this was easily the best Red Dwarf I've seen since Doug took it up on his own, apart from perhaps Tikka To Ride (which was easily the best from series 7 IMO). It would fit in perfectly in series 4, as others have said, with the sets from RDX (but better - the bunk room set looked a lot shinier) and the film-like quality of series 7. It would even fit in pretty well in the series 4-6 "golden era" (apart from the OTT bit at the end, in my opinion). ClareGC - good luck, but I would suggest that you get there earlier if you can! I got there at 4:20 and was the first one in the marquee, a minute or two after that a few more standby people came along. If people are twigging that standby tickets may not get let in now, they may come earlier too. I got a taxi from Slough and got to reception, the marquee is literally just round the corner from reception (but you'll be shown where you need to go anyway). EDIT - just to make you all a bit more excited to see it, I still can't believe they did THAT. That's big budget sci-fi stuff, that is. And even then, they do several different takes from different angles so a single scene, with THAT in it, would take them hours and hours. For Red Dwarf to do THAT, convincingly, sometimes in a single take, is absurd. Maybe that's why the Star Wars people were there, to learn a lesson or two? Quick shout to the sets too - to think that so many of those scenes were done in a tiny guest set off in the corner, which they just built on and lit differently and populated with a few different props... and Starbug too, filming all that in a set interior which isn't much bigger than the inside of a 4x4! Another quick edit - Chris Barrie more or less topped the episode for me, for so many reasons. I wanted to see the old Rimmer back, and this was very satisfying on so many weird and wonderful levels.
