    I enjoyed that clip, made me laugh. I'm hoping this one is a return to form so we all profess our love for Doug, and he makes more :-D

    I'm hoping this will be a great finale for XII. Although in that clip, I see the presence of the audience laughing at nothing is still a problem.

    The synopsis on IMDb is "The Red Dwarf crew reunite with an old friend."

    From my understanding, isn't this a bit wrong, unless this refers to a friend I'm not aware of?

    On the night episode 6 was filmed Ed Moore posted an image of something that had the actors names on it including the old friend and another returning face... he deleted it soon after though so you won't find it.

    You can probably piece together yourself though if you think about what characters would fit the period that Rimmers costume matches

    I sort of want to know, then I sort of don't want to know. I have some ideas.

    I saw this thread and thought the episode was going to be there tonight. Then I realised it was still only Wednesday.

    Anyway, looking forward to this one and the return of a certain character.
