    There were no major spoilers, nothing to do with the storyline etc

    But just things in general, like now we know for definate that there are no surprises like Holly or Kochanski (at least not in that episode), and the comments about the set, style, and the structure of the episodes

    I have no problem with the report whatsoever, i'd just rather not read it.

    I disagree. I think Ian was very clever writing his report, and if indeed there were any surprises he wouldn't mention them. Just because he doesn't talk about Kochanski/Holly surprises doesn't mean there aren't any.

    In G&T's spoiler policy they do say they would talk openly about sets and style as long as it doesn't spoil the episodes. For me, I don't find that to be a spoiler and am happy with their reports about it, but I can understand how some people might not want to read that so you'll probs be best keeping away from their next set report :-)

    I think a bitter sting like Kochanski being in the episodes would be something I would like to know in advance so I would know not to get my hopes up about things.

    Just seen on Bobbys Twitter that he will be having Family in the Audience tonight methinks it will be quite special for them all.

    Sorry to bang on about this but (personally in my own weird way) the fact they are shooting wherever they're shooting and how it does look like Rimmerworld takes me back to March 6 1993 and driving through the gates of Shepperton for the first time, and for me I think its weird that all these years later- sorry my minds just reminiscing.

    But yep, it certainly does look like Rimmerworld.

    Hopefully it will be an actual image this time and not, for example, a lot of studio equipment almost entirely obscuring something vaguely red.

    These teasers are driving me nuts, in the nicest possible way!

    Supercat, are you going on 13th, then? I'll see you there - my dad's now not going, so am taking a mate instead - I'll be wearing a bright red coat, and likely being generally over-excited! Won't even be able to have a drink to calm myself down, as I'm driving...

    Hope everyone's had a great time tonight, and I hope parking directions weren't too confusing!

    I don't know what I'm wearing yet... I'm still deciding ;-)
    I think we'll be getting a taxi from the hotel. I should take note of the postcode for the service entrance so the taxi driver doesn't drop us at the front.

    Today started of with me travelling from Southend to Liverpool Street then to Bank then to Waterloo- right at the last minute (literally two minutes before my Train was ready to depart to Shepperton a Friend of mine - those who were coming with me texted and said if I got on the train to go to Epsom he'd pick me up so quickly got off the Train and got onto an-)

    Enough of this.

    We drove to Shepperton and had got there a little bit early so we took advantage of getting a rather fabulous Photo :-) Soon to be my profile pic on here.

    Got into the gates and directed to the multistorey carpark then we were escorted to the holding area and I chose then to unleash the full contents of my bladder- did this before our numbers were called.

    There was such a HUGE buzz of excitement as we made our way over to Stage K and once through the doors I couldnt help but make noises of extreme enthusiasm when we saw glimpses of the set and then made our way to our seats.

    At this point - and I know its been said before, but Red Dwarf has really gone back to its roots, its almost as though BTE never existed or maybe it did and Doug saw the Fanbases response and seriously knuckled down because what I saw tonight kicked Series seven and eight WAY out of the ballpark- only those who've been to this or the other two recordings will know exactly what I mean and very soon so will the rest of you who'll be seeing this.

    The warm up man commented about just how loyal the Fanbase was and what happened there, and then Mr. Doug Naylor came out and reiterated what has been said before.

    "I fought with Dave to get an Audience."

    And by God do the Boys LOVE the Audience, the performance I was most impressed by was Craig Charles he has seriously matured as an Actor, (I remember him constantly larking about with Bobby when filming Rimmerworld) but there was hardly any of that in tonights recording, Danny was Fantastic as usual, Bobby (as mentioned by others) comes out in Full character and Chris a true genius.

    Laughs came from everything from Danny Smegging up hysterically, to remarks of a creaky bit of Camera equipment by Mr. Barrie.

    The laughs werent forced, the laughs came from the fact that the Audience (some came from Norway... Some from Aberdeen and that poor Audience member who went to the bog only to come back unbeknownst to him the Warmup man had asked about his Girlfriend- the warmup man did what he could to entertain us... I wonder if the dude on the front row ever got his footwear back.

    Anyways the storyline tonight as already been mentioned by Andrew is going to be very much talked about when it airs, and indeed one of the best and most funniest, well acted scenes was seen tonight (I'm just hoping they keep in our first reaction - those who were there will know exactly what I'm talking about)

    One of the biggest rounds of applause came when Chris fluffed a line and honoured us by doing his wonderful Kenneth Williams impression - naturally we were in awe of this.

    Everything I saw tonight was nothing short of brilliant. Theres more I could say but tonight was incredible and I will say this (and its not an exaggeration) with what we saw tonight I wouldn't be surprised if there was a TWELFTH Series - because the Acting, Writing, spot on Comic Timing and of course the Ideas and the Writing is there.

    The Boys are most definitely back.

    I'm getting the impression, from people on Twitter, that tonight's episode may be quite controversial!! Oooh!!
