Arnold J. Rimmer
Played by: Chris Barrie
Hate each other as they may, Holly was right:
"Jean-Paul Sartre said, 'Hell was being locked forever in a room with your friends.'"
Apart from all this, Rimmer actually has the potential to become the most liked, the coolest, the smartest, the most skilled and the sexiest guy in all the known (and unknown) multiverses.
Despite the fact that he enjoys hammond organ music... despite the fact that he loves things of such interest as 20th century telegraph poles and morris dancing... and despite the fact that he's quite petty and always wants to go by the book, he has the potential to be Ace Rimmer!
With all Rimmer's bitterness, snidiness and negativity (from his bad childhood experiences, mostly), he can actually be a hero for a change! Not a sad git, not someone that everyone love to hate - he can be a man who everyone looks up to!
Rimmer's sex appeal quote... Mmmmmm...
Many thanks to Lydia Crowe for some of the Rimmer images!
