    Yes there was a tweet from Doug Naylor saying there were still two scenes left to film on that episode, and Richard Naylor replied later saying 'good scene' with a wink emoticon. I bet you're right, there's something they want to keep secret from everyone!

    Simulant (RIP) aka the mad king had an interesting theory about one of the guest stars in series 12. Should be cool if he is right...

    He says it wasn't good, so they've burned all the tapes.

    And the cast.

    So, if we just look at the capitals, he says... SEPTRDXIY.

    ... almost like some sort of conspiracy. The nearest Google can find is...

    Hmm...

    Yay! I suppose it just confirms what we already thought, but it's still great to hear. Wonder which day it will be though? Probably a Thursday - Thursday's the best day for Red Dwarf - and probably at the end of the month. 22nd or 29th then!

    I would expect either of those dates, and then soon after the release of the DVD / blu-ray to catch the Christmas period (which I'm definitely getting, despite the fact that I'm emigrating next week - if I have to pay an extortionate amount I will).

    Indeed. Was hoping for a trailer, but hey-ho. And the storylines certainly sound interesting!

    For those who've missed it, or want it here too, the announcement can be summarised as:

    1 - Red Dwarf XI will be broadcast from September 2016 (no exact date announced)
    2 - storylines include the following (not necessarily in this order:-(
    ***** Rimmer accidentally saving the life of a Space Corps captain and being promoted to Officer
    ***** Cat falling in love with a female Cat with a secret (I still haven't watched Identity Within)
    ***** Lister discovering a deranged droid has stolen some of his body parts
    ***** Kryten has a mid-life crisis and considers leaving for a younger crew
    ***** the crew finding themselves in an alternate-reality America which has outlawed modern tech, making both Rimmer and Kryten illegal

    I do wonder if *one* of those is the one that I saw, which was mooted originally to be RDXII episode 1. They could have changed the running order. Or they could just have a slightly similar-sounding episode.

    Also, remember that this does not constitute a description of all the episodes (after all, there are 5 descriptions), or indeed each description constitute an episode (after all, one episode could include the first, third and fourth plots on its own!).

    So a new Identity Within and a new Bodysnatcher? Interesting.

    Ah I'm so excited, the Kryten one sounds really good. I think we knew about the Cat one, the Rimmer one I've seen recorded, the Lister one looks interesting (probably the one where everyone becomes....y'know) and the USA one could be fun.

    Roll on September. 8)

    Interesting synopses there. But I'm not sure what I think about having a Cat-centric episode and Kryten having a mid-life crisis.

    The one set in America is the one I saw.... and it looks like AMERICA as opposed to some badly lit studio version of America!!
