    Tried searching to see if these have been posted in various threads, but it's like looking for a piece of hay in an enormous stack of needles!

    So, does anyone here know where all the hidden content is on all 7 Red Dwarf DVDs? I've been a-Easter egg huntin', but I'm rubbish at finding this stuff! I'd be grateful for a comprehensive list.

    Cheers! :thumbsup:

    Disc 2 - Plain Menu: Press left from the 'Back' option to highlight the matter paddle, then press select.

    Easter Egg Easter Egg
    Disc 1: From the main menu highlight the 'Select Episode' option and select. As the camera moves down the corridor, you'll see a skutter waving a videotape - press select at this point to be whisked to the egg. (Egg? Whisk? Geddit?)

    Series V

    Back to Reality Animation
    Disc 1: Head for the scene selection menu. See the Inquisitor's glove? Highlight and select it, then you'll be asked to enter three digits. GD is the clue here - it stands for Gamma Delta. Still don't recognise the reference to the code Lister punched into the glove? Never mind - the number that follows in the episode quote should be 145.

    Commentary Booth Egg
    Disc 1: Head to the episode selection menu again and go to Quarantine. In the second scene selection page, highlight the conspicuous penguin and press enter to watch a skit featuring the cast... and a special guest star. (This Easter Egg was conceived and shot by former Fan Club chairman Steve Rogers.)

    The Accent Question
    Disc 2: Head for the subtitle menu and press 'up' to discover a familiar silhouette. Select the image for yet more Red Dwarf USA-related chatter from Doug Naylor and Robert Llewellyn.

    Series VI

    Footage Archive
    Disc 1: Insert your disc and watch the opening sequence. When you reach the Starbug airlock, you will have a few seconds to press 'select' before the light changes colour. Do so, and you'll be taken to a star map above the scanner table. Clicking 'You Are Here' will reveal film footage of the cockpit, while planets SVC1 and SVC2 show some of the animations created, by post-effects house SVC, for the series. The other planets do nothing, but are generally named/numbered as a pun of some kind. Plus, don't they look pretty?

    Gunmen of the Apocalypse Animation
    Disc 1: Go to the episode selection menu and select Gunmen. Then navigate over the sheriff badge and hit 'select' to see Rob, Doug and Ed talking about the episode... and wearing some most disturbing outfits.

    The Memory Man
    Disc 1: From the main menu, highlight 'commentary' and press left. The airlock sign will be highlighted, so press 'select'. You will be asked to enter a number on a keypad; the 'ginger toupee' clue is a reference to a Space Corps Directive. Enter the number 1742 and this will take you to a splendid Danny John-Jules interview outtake.

    Series VII

    Chloë's Audition
    Disc 3: From the main menu, highlight the ammo dispenser on the left. Select the live (red) ammo and watch as the Doom-esque animation shows you picking up a bazookoid and pointing it at the airlock controls. When the shot is lined up, press 'select' to fire. You'll be taken to the AR suite and shown exclusive footage from Chloë Annett's audition tape - including a dialogue exchange eventually cut from Ouroboros.

    Movie-Style Trailer
    Disc 3: Do exactly the same as above until your bazookoid is pointed at the airlock door controls. Then press 'down' to highlight a second light on the side of the weapon. Press 'select' to fire and be taken, once again, to the AR suite - where this time you'll be shown a movie-esque Red Dwarf trailer voiced by Epideme actor Gary Martin.

    Misfire
    Disc 3: When choosing your ammo (above), if you select blank (blue) rather than live, you'll still tool up your bazookoid, but when it comes time to fire at the door controls... well, all you'll achieve is a bit of a scorch mark and a return to the main menu!​
