Cult sci-fi comedy following a gang of space bums across the galaxy as they face shapeshifting aliens, time holes and even a monster made from mutton vindaloo. When a radiation leak wipes out the entire crew of his ship, Dave Lister wakes up three million years later to find his only companions are a life-form evolved from his cat and Arnold J Rimmer, a hologram simulation of his pedantic dead bunk-mate. Aimlessly roaming the universe, the ramshackle crew encounter danger and disaster at every turn. Can they stay alive long enough to find a way back to Earth?
Rimmer has donned his best uniform and Lister has put on his smelly orange moon boots, even Holly is wearing a toupee. After all, what self-respecting smeghead could possibly resist a cry for help from three damsels and an android in distress?
