AlarmClock BS

Lister's alarm clock in "Bodysnatcher", voiced by Chris Barrie

Dave Lister owned an alarm clock, which can be seen in the sleeping quarters aboard Red Dwarf in the earlier television series, especially in Series I and Series II. Like much of Lister's possessions, it had a "souvenir of Titan" sticker on it.

However the alarm clock remains unused in the television series. Instead, Holly often acts as an alarm clock, using a partially-muted, foghorn-like sound, or simply by alerting the boys from the Dwarf verbally. Queeg also used his own alarm clock sound which was notably louder than any noise Holly used (and on-time).

In the Series III episode of the same name, one of the forms taken by the Polymorph is that of the alarm clock.

Lister's alarm clock has a larger role in the "lost episode" of Series I, Bodysnatcher (reconstructed in The Bodysnatcher Collection) much like the Medi-Bot. Rimmer says that it is cheap junk like most of Lister's things. Here it is revealed that the alarm clock has artificial intelligence, much like the Medi-Bot or Talkie Toaster. In one notable scene at Lister's bedside, it continually tries to wake Lister up, dozens of times, playing Mexican tunes and thanking Lister for buying it. Lister, who is having an exceptionally lazy day, eventually gets so fed up of it that he smashes it up (also much like Talkie Toaster).
