    Edited - all anagrams have been completed!

    Regarding "Dominator Zlurg" (instead of Zlurth) and the misspelling of Katerina's surname - in both cases, I went by what was on Wikipedia, which turned out to be wrong. Next time I post some anagrams, I will fact-check the spellings.


    If you like anagrams, these should keep you going for a while. Some are bloody hard, if I do say so meself.

    The answers are minor characters who appear (or are mentioned) in episodes of Red Dwarf, from series one to the present.

    There's a mix of surnames, nicknames, full names, and ranks with just one name (e.g., Smith, John Smith, Captain Smith, Prince John, Johnny Smith, "Psycho" Smith, Psycho). I've never combined a title with a full name (so Captain John Smith could be Captain Smith or John Smith).

    Well done, everyone! I've edited the original post to show which have been solved, and which haven't.

    I bitterly regret not choosing "Doug N." for "Dungo". What a fumble!

    Bonus points for getting it with the wrong spelling. I followed the spelling seen on Wikipedia.

    Each day I will provide a cryptic (not in the rigorous crossword sense) "clue" for one of the unsolved anagrams.
