Katerina, the hologram who is not only slated to replace Rimmer but seems insufferably pleased about it, opens a dimensional portal through which she intends to retrieve a suitable human female to help Lister repopulate the now-extinct human race. But her instruments briefly register that Red Dwarf’s own dimension is invalid. One by one, everyone but Katerina is sucked through the wormhole, landing in London in 2009. As they browse the video aisle of a store, they’re extremely disturbed to discover that their adventures have been chronicled on television: Red Dwarf, and its entire crew, are a fictional construct. As if that’s not enough to rock them back on their heels, the back-of-the-box blurb on a new DVD release, Red Dwarf: Back To Earth, reveals that they’re fated to die in the next episode.
