    I just watched "only the good" last night and came up with a possible way the crew could have survived. Now I know not everything was exactly opposite in the mirror universe so there is a possibility that the time wand was not destroyed leaving a world of possibilities for escape and Rimmer had to have died to be a hologram again, but hey who wouldn't after giving death "a swift knee to the happy sacks".
    I know using the time wand feels a bit like cheating but it's the best I have so far.

    Not quite sure how to respond to that comment however I should have said I watched that episode "again" I've been a huge fan of the show for a long time and one of the surprisingly few fans in America, so much so that I'm hoping to make a fan fiction episode set between season two and three that will bridge the gap.

    Hello, welcome to the forum (I'd just ignore the above comment if I were you!). It's nice to hear that Red Dwarf has American fans even if they are few and far between. :-)

    I was a bit worried for a minute, I didn't think it was that bad of a post.
    There are very few fans over here and I tell many people that I meet about the show.
    Extremely excited about the new seasons as well, September can't get here soon enough.
    I am curious if someday we may see some scenes from the movie they were working on, probably as some bonus content on a Blu-ray I'm sure.

    I've actually just finished up my own 11,000 word fan-fic about the events directly following Series VIII, which addresses several questions from throughout the show. I'll be posting a link to it as soon as it's back from the editor.

    I'm having a few people quality-check it, then next week the editor will run through quickly. So hopefully the end of next week at the latest.

    I try to forget series VIII exists. Can't even remember how it ends. I remember thinking series VII was poor when it first aired, but VIII was on a whole new level of facepalm. It nearly makes VII look brilliant in comparison. It's amazing the series didn't completely kill off the show, it nearly did.
