Good Ep! One of the better ones in series 12, particularly good early on.
Unlike some others I still enjoyed this episode very much, find it excellent and still feel it one of the best of the twelfth series. It's epic and visually is one of the best looking episodes of Red Dwarf ever made. The plot is decent and I know some have criticised the end for being so fluky. But although I was not keen on the resolution on first broadcast I subsequently have since really liked it as it is like a deus ex machina Russell T Davies Doctor Who first series type one - simple but ultimately effective way of rounding it off. It is also at least a bit clever as to understand it - which admittedly I didn't at first - you have to notice two lines earlier in the script that mention the droids are travelling to Siliconia. Okay it is coincidental and fortuitous but for me it is successful and I feel the episode reaches the classic Dwarf bracket. Rating - still 9 out of 10.
The Episode is mostly ok, but the resolution is rushed. its like Doug got to the end and went ah crap i need at least another 10 minutes but only have 2 minutes to conclude this thing ASAP.
This issue is resent with many new episodes: Officer Rimmer, M-Corp, Trojan... It's shame, because these episodes are otherwise great.
