    "Our cover plays a key part in the storyline, and we've decided to celebrate by giving our readers and Red Dwarf fans a chance to find their own collector's cover. This is real Charlie and the Chocolate Factory stuff - keep your eyes open, as nobody knows where these covers will turn up!"

    This quotation raised my eyebrows a tad, what reference can the magazine have to the story? Any ideas.

    Wild theory but perhaps when the Dwarfers end up in 2009 Earth, they see themselves on the cover of a magazine? The real world could be an alternative universe to Red Dwarf's universe.

    Anything is possible with alternative realites as I believe in theory any reality can happen in an alternative universe. :P

    Maybe buying the mag reveals something bad and that's why they go to see their creators (as per the synopsis now removed), aka. Rob and Doug?

    It's a brilliant concept! My brain does hurt a bit thinking about it though! :shock:

    Alternatively, if it's a fake reality rather than another dimension, like VR, or some kind of holographic set up, maybe the magazine is a clue towards the system back door. Like the button and 'power source' in Back in the Red.

    I hope it's a bit more subtle than that, though.

    Not sure exactly where it was found, but in the south. Ebay has the generic cover, and the subscribers cover. One will turn up eventually.

    The mag was significant - Lister found Chloe Annet is alive and well in it. For him that was a big deal.
