It had not been considered by Doug Naylor that Series 6, 7 and 8 may never had actually happened and that it was all hallucination experienced by Rimmer, Lister, Cat and Kryten and that they were still suffering the effects of the ink from the despair squid, following their encounter with the despair squid on the ocean planet in Red Dwarf: Back to Reality (1992).

This is not the first time the crew have travelled to Earth, they've already done so in Backwards, Timeslides, Tikka to Ride and Ouroboros (though here only Lister makes a visit to Earth, when he uses the time drive to leave the baby in a Liverpool pub). In Back to Reality, it's possible that they are on Earth when they awake from the video game, but it could also just be some other colonised planet and anyway the whole thing turns out to be a hallucination.

Spoilers 

The trivia item below may give away important plot points.

There had been debate by fans on if Red Dwarf: Back to Earth (2009) is a direct continuation of Red Dwarf: Only the Good (1999) or if Series 6, 7 and 8 never happened. If Series 6, 7 and 8 indeed never happened and "Back to Earth" ignored them. The plot of "Back to Earth" could had focused on Rimmer, Lister, Cat and Kryten whom discover that they're still suffering the effects of the ink from the despair squid and that the events that happened in Series 6, 7 and 8 (The battle with their future selves. Rimmer leaving to become Ace Rimmer. Red Dwarf being rebuilt by the Nanobots etc.) was another hallucination and they return to reality and Lister struggles to accept that the Chloe Annett incarnation of Kochanski was not real.
