Synopsis

Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow.

Kryten discovers that a mutating batch of photographic developing fluid produces photographs that are windows to the past, and slide projections that one can step into (albeit only within the confines of the photo). After visiting Frank Rimmer's wedding and one of Adolf Hitler's speeches, Lister goes back in time and changes history by giving his seventeen-year-old self an invention that will make him a billionaire. His actions in the 'past' create changes in the 'present' because of determinism. In the new history, Rimmer is left alone with Holly, but only until he has the idea of going further back in time and giving the invention to himself first. Rimmer's plan is foiled when one of his childhood schoolmates overhears the conversation between young and old Rimmer, and takes the invention for himself. Upon returning to the present, everything is put back exactly the way it was (with the sole exception that Rimmer is now alive - not a hologram - although he manages to accidentally kill himself soon after). This article or section does not cite its references or sources. ... Hitler redirects here. ... Determinism is the philosophical proposition that every event, including human cognition, decision and action, is causally determined by an unbroken chain of prior occurrences. ... Arnold Judas Rimmer BSc, SSc (Bronze Swimming Certificate, Silver Swimming Certificate), who sometimes goes by Arnold Jonathan Rimmer, is a fictional character in the television series Red Dwarf, played by Chris Barrie. ...
