    This is the official thread for discussion of the content of the episode GIVE AND TAKE. Once the episode has appeared on UKTV Play (and NOT before), this thread may be used to discuss any and all elements of the episode. Anyone who has not seen the episode who enters this thread does so at their own risk!

    Until the episode airs on Dave, you may continue to discuss it in other threads (as well as here), but only in relation to officially-released information. Once it has aired on Dave, it can be discussed in any thread in the "Red Dwarf XI Chat" conference, but you may not put plot details in thread titles.

    For more information on the spoiler policy, please read this thread.

    And please let's not have endless discussion about when the episode will show up online this time!

    I'm really excited about this one. It can only be the scary robot one.

    I wonder how many kidneys Lister has, given he has two appendixes. Please let there be a joke about this.

    I initially wasn't sure where you got the kidneys reference from, then I realised they released the official episodes synopsises here:

    http://www.reddwarf.co.uk/red-dwarf-xi/

    So, Give and Take is:

    After an altercation with a deranged droid Lister has his kidneys organ-napped. The only solution is to ask Cat, the most selfish creature in the universe, to give him one of his.

    I'm not looking forward to this one as much as the first two episodes, but it's still an intriguing premise, and I'm interesting in where this story goes. Sounds like it could be a pretty unusual episode.

    Personally I'm looking foward to this far more than Samsara. That evil droid looks genuinely scary, I can't wait to see this.

    Probably safe to assume it's on the same time every week now. So, tomorrow morning.

    Really good first half, proper menacing villain, not played for laughs, just what people were asking for. Interesting second half set up.

    Solid second half with a clever finish, I like how they brought the timelines round full circle. Shame we didn't see more of Ascelpius as he was a pretty cool villain.

    Just seen it. I liked it more than last week's episode. I'll give a proper review tonight after a second watch, but after one viewing I thought it was pretty good stuff with some laugh out loud lines. Nice ending too.

    Really enjoyed that! Best so far actually and not one you can really compare to another episode!

    Series 11 is so much better than series 10 and it's not even ended yet!

    Love a bit of timey-wimey !!

    Amazing model shots too! Perhaps Red Dwarf a bit over lit?

    Two big laugh out loud moments for me as well!! Both from Kryten!

    I love it when Rimmer is a reluctant hero, even if he was using Kryten as a shield, he saved the day.

    Oookay, I am probably being dumber than cat, but, how can Ascelpius (spell?) take Listers kidneys if the version of Lister from the past had his removed to heal the other Lister ?

    Timey wimey smeg.

    You can compare some of it to stasis leak, you know time travel with a stasis booth coming across themselves.
