Feature length special expected April.
Series XII, Episode 4 is repeated today at 10pm.

Series V, Episode 5 - Demons And Angels

Using Kryten's matter paddle, the crew manage to figure out how to triplicate things. First a strawberry...and then Red Dwarf!

Further details

They accidentally transport the beam outwards by mistake, which blows up the original Red Dwarf and ends up making a divine copy of the ship and a low and grimy one. Going on board both, they attempt to recover the matter paddle from one of them and recover the first Red Dwarf. Of course, their alter-egos are also on board both. Fancy meeting a saintly Lister and a Rocky Horror version of Rimmer?!
