    I now agree that the everyone becomes Kryten is real and not a dream.

    I also now predict we see Ace Rimmer.

    My money is on Talkie Toaster (based on something written in a review of the live show)

    I thought that when I saw talk of an 'old friend' but then more information came out and I thought that meant someone else.

    When I say Red Dwarf doesn't do recurring characters, alter-egos are an exception of sorts. We've seen Ace several times, and the episode Skipper sounds very Acey. Talkie Toaster recurred a few times. Lister's GELF bride recurred once. But the characters they meet like Camille, Hogey the Roguey, the Holograms, Legion, all go down the memory hole. I'd love Hogey the Roguey to come back

    Mr. Douglas Naylor says that BIG announcement will be tomorrow.

    Oh yes just seen that, he was replying to someone who wondered whether the new t-shirt would be tomorrow's update.

    Air date then?

    Given that the bluray release date in America is 14th November, all 6 episodes will have been shown by that date so will start no later than 9th October. So my guess is either Thursday 5th (which would mean 28th September on UKTV Play) or Monday 9th. Although having said that, it wouldn't be the first time Baby Cow have released a full series on dvd before it has finished airing.

    "BIG announcement" would hardly be the air dates, everyone knows the show is airing in October, which is only 4 weeks away at this point so announcing them seems such a minor thing to warrant a "BIG announcement" tweet from Doug.

    Almost makes it sound like he's gonna reveal UKTV have green-lit XIII and XIV already!

    I thought they'd probably show XI again before the new series, but so far only the first three episodes are scheduled (on October 7th). Last year the transmission dates were announced on 12th August, just over a month before the online premiere, so I reckon we may have a little longer to wait (they did say October after all). The series XI DVD came out earlier in America than it did in the UK, might they release it before it's finished airing over here?

    I only hope the TV premiere doesn't clash with the start of The Apprentice - not that I'm too interested in that these days, but I'm worried that it could perhaps impact on viewing figures/newspaper coverage.

    I really, really hope it's this!!

    I think we all know who the "old friend" is, and he isn't from XI.

    Exciting! Interesting to see what people are speculating on twitter - more series, a movie, an anniversary special. I still think it must have something to do with the new series, since we're getting so close to it. Someone seems to think the air date's already been announced, although it clearly hasn't yet. I do wonder though whether they might go with a different day of the week this time, there's no reason it has to go out on a Thursday is there? 9pm on Thursdays seemed to be quite a competitive slot last year.

    Anyway, I hope it might be something a tiny bit more interesting than the air date, but don't want to get my hopes up too much. Even not longer to go now!
