    I think its been something talked about since the 90s.

    Although i think Christmas specials were more common back then.

    The Christmas special could be on the DVD for the next season, couldn't it? Or released solo with some extras. Or they could record a tiny 5 or ten minutes Christmas bonus for the DVD when they record the series, so people who'd love to have the Dwarfers over for Christmas could watch it every year :-) They even could have Chris record a short Christmas tale doing all the voices. Lots of options!!

    It looks very much like Holly's "return" is only a return in the sense that we see him in another dimension, he doesn't actually "return" in the normal dimension. Which seems a wasted opportunity for a cliffhanger.

    I'm loving that teaser though. It's mostly the music, but it's got a dark feel to it, and I love that part of Red Dwarf which used to crop up in the original run.

    Youtube licensing reasons, unfortunately. But it's on the RD Twitter and Facebook pages too, and they should be accessible everywhere!

    Nice trailer, love the music, looks really nice. Holly episode looks like skipper I guess Rimmer has skipped back in time, my juices have definitely been wetted, can't wait.
    Just noticed, Lister is strapped to a table, the screen says automatic castration commencing , no wonder he is struggling, has Asclepius maybe made a return? To remove his well not his kidneys

    Haha! I wonder if that might be Mechocracy, with the Skutters turning against the crew?

    Anyway, with all the trailer excitement I didn't notice the confirmation that the series will be previewed on UKTV Play again - a bit disappointing, but on the bright side less than 3 weeks to wait! Just realised it's exactly a year since Twentica had its online debut.

    It is on uktv play 1 week before, if you read down it does confirm this

    Red Dwarf XII lands exclusively on Dave on 12th October, with previews on UKTV Play from 5th October!

    Oh, very dark and depressive teaser for a sitcom, but I love it. It's really Bondish - Lister on automatic castration is clearly reference to Goldfinger. Rimmer with scar in shape of R looks bit like Blofeld (who originaly shouldn't look like that, but that's another story). Scar is one word mentioned with episode Time(r )wave in SFX. The retro-Rimmer and Holly scene is probably some time travel (When is it?), Rimmer has some blue(y) gadget in his hand and Holly has not very well done make-up.

    I loved the trailer /teaser. Especially the single note piano Red Dwarf theme. I can't wait now for Thursday nights in Oct/Nov.

    I can't watch it here either.

    I would watch a Christmas special every year :-) And throughout the year.

    So can we assume - given Doug's teasers in SFX - that the shot of Rimmer with the R-shaped scar comes from Timewave?* That episode is the one that's intriguing me the most - how does such a seemingly dark moment fit alongside comedy pink policemen?

    *Edit: Sorry Asclepius, just noticed you already said that!

    Okay so what are those things on the shelf behind Lister in the teaser pic at the table?

    Re: the picture of Rimmer seemingly being removed from a crate. Cat has a towel around his neck. Could it be some sort of sensory deprivation tank?

    In this one? I guess helmets, but they aren't probably important, cause they have already been in emotion-cut-machine scene in Can of Worms. This appears to be the same room "Starbug 19". Because of the table, i believe this is Starbug middle section and if so it looks very well.

    Also noticed that Lister is reading the same issue of JMC magazine as in Give and Take.
