Rob Grant and Doug Naylor decided to publish some of their unedited scripts (or battle plans as they were referred to) as a book. They included six scripts for shows that were their favourites at the time of writing them.
Those six scripts were:
There was also a key to all the technical jargon at the front and several black-and-white pictures from the set of Red Dwarf.
Due to poor communication and a delay to the television production, the book contained the script for "Psirens" - published six months before it was first broadcast.
Primordial Soup was followed three years later by a sequel, Son of Soup.
