    This is the official thread for discussion of the content of the episode M-CORP. 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/XII" conference, but you may not put plot details in thread titles.

    Synopsis:

    Episode five lands on 9th November, and is titled M-Corp. It sees the Dwarfers upload the ship's latest software update only to discover that the Jupiter Mining Corporation, owners of Red Dwarf, have been bought by a corporation that only allows products made by them to be visible to their employees. This episode guest stars Helen George (Call the Midwife).

    I like the concept behind this. I wonder what will happen to Kryten, seeing as he's presumably not manufactured by the same company. I wonder how Helen George features? Probably a voice role? Updated ship computer?

    It sounds promising! Actually sounds a bit Black-Mirrory.

    Probably the weakest of Series XII so far, but that's not to say I didn't enjoy it. Some great one liners, and I loved the throwback to the very first scene.

    Best episode of series XII by far.

    Might even be my favourite Dave era episode!

    Just a brilliant concept and interesting story, unique, and good jokes too!

    My only criticism - the ending is a bit controversial.

    I liked it. I am enjoying these throw back moments. Plus the cast are finally remembering how to play their characters like they used to. I do have a bit of an issue as to where red dwarf got teleporters from for the equipment and how dimmer knew that was a teleporter pad by glancing at it. But that is splitting hairs!

    Just watched it and thought it was an okay episode, there were funny parts in it such as finding out Rimmer kissed his uncle Frank "Can I get on?" and Cat commenting "Is that what he said?" XD also reacting that first scene from the first episode was good as well
