Now, i don't know if there's a thread for theories but here's mine: What we know is that the Red Dwarf crew will arrive back to "Earth" in the year 2009. I originaly thought that this was something to do with the time drive now; however i'm not so sure, here's the data that makes me doubt it. In the Radio Times it states that Carbug is a car made by a Red Dwarf fanboy, this coupled with the fact that they visit Coronation street, and that they have fans, to me says this is either a paralell reality, or some kind of simulation? The other thing that supports this is that when they are running from the gunman in the street (who has bullets with the characters names on them) they seem to be in a futuristic chinatown with pedestrians with gas-masks on... Does this mean the dwarfers arrive in a simulation where fiction is reality and reality is fiction? But then get out of that simulation ravealing the reality of the earth? Some fourth wall breaking with a Dwarfey twist maybe? This is a first postops: let me know what you think.
