    UPDATED OCTOBER 2017

    UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE, all discussion of Red Dwarf XI and XII should only take place in THIS dedicated section. The previous series can continue to be discussed in the general "Red Dwarf Universe" section.

    Please be advised that as Red Dwarf XI has been available for less than a year, we are continuing to apply spoiler rules for that series to allow those who have not yet seen the episodes to remain unspoiled. We will advise when this rule has changed.

    RULES THAT APPLY TO SERIES XI AND XII:

    You must not mention episode titles or any plot/character/actor details of XI and XII episodes in the SUBJECT LINE of ANY thread until further notice. This is to protect users who want to view the general thread index without seeing spoiler details in thread titles.

    When creating a new thread in this section, if it is to contain plot details about either Series XI or Series XII, you must select the appropriate Thread Prefix (RDXI or RDXII) to apply to it when creating the thread. See the below image for where to select this prefix:

    If a thread in this forum has the [RDXI] prefix on it, you may discuss anything and everything that happens in the released episodes (subject to the above rule about not giving away details in thread titles). If it has the [RDXII] prefix, you may discuss anything that has been officially released as per the Series XII-specific rule outlined below.

    If a thread in this forum does not have an [RDXI] or [RDXII] prefix on it, you must not post any plot details relating to those episodes in it. This includes not discussing Series XI in threads only marked Series XII.

    UPDATE: By request, we have added a combined [RDXI/XII] tag. This tag should not be added to any existing threads, but can be used for all-purpose threads where you want to discuss both series (and potentially earlier ones too). Please, however, use this sparingly rather than just applying it to all threads about XII - we want to ensure that people who haven't seen XI still have the opportunity to discuss XII episodes if they have ended up watching them in that order!

    RULES THAT APPLY TO SERIES XII ONLY:

    As with Series XI, Series XII is previewing on the UKTV Play service a week prior to its transmission on Dave.

    After the show has appeared on UKTV Play but before it is broadcast on Dave, you may ONLY discuss it in the authorised Episode discussion thread which will be created by the admin the night before it goes online
    .

    After the episode has been broadcast on Dave, you may discuss its contents in any thread in this section so long as it has the XII tag on it. You MUST, however, adhere to the above rule regarding not putting plot information in thread titles.

    The following rules still apply to episodes before they appear on UKTV Play:

    If you attended a recording or advance screening of a Red Dwarf XII episode, you may discuss your experiences in threads in this section. However you may NOT discuss any details relating to the content recorded, from plot spoilers to details of costumes/sets/characters/guest actors/etc.

    You may discuss officially-released information (such as the synopsis, or any cast announcements) in this section. If you're not sure what constitutes "officially-released", take as a rule of thumb anything published on (the non-forum bit of) this site, UKTV.co.uk, or the Twitter feeds @RedDwarfHQ and @Join_Dave.

    Before the broadcast of an episode, you may speculate about officially-released content at will, subject to the above-mentioned conditions about which threads to use and how to tag them. But if you were at the recording of an episode, you may not confirm or deny anybody else's speculation, nor elaborate on officially-released plot details. If you state a plot spoiler and cannot provide a verifiable source for it online or in print, it will be deleted and you may be banned.

    Unauthorised photographs taken on the Red Dwarf set are, and will always be, strictly prohibited.

    Guys, we've already had two threads started with spoiler details about Cured inside, and the episode's only been up 24 hours!

    A reminder, then, that until the episode is broadcast on Dave you can only discuss it in the specific episode thread. After it's been on TV, you can start new threads about it (so long as you don't put plot details in the title).

    Thanks for your attention!
