    Judging by roberts live periscope video it sounds like this episode may be a Rimmer episode

    So does that mean next weeks will be a lister episode? not sure why we need an episode for each character this series

    Maybe it just ended out that way by chance, it's not necessarily a conscious effort. Either way I'm fine with the fact everyone get's their moment to shine, unless episode 5 is Dear Dave Part II!

    Id rather it wasn't a conscious effort as i think that just adds extra pressure and may hurt the show

    My guess is that Doug has had some ideas for some of the characters bobbing around in his head for a while and it likely more got structured that way more out of enthusiasm then an intentional attempt the squeeze in a episodes specifically for each character per-season. For all we know series XII will be structured different in that department.

    Yes,if Doug had wished to go to town with character centric episodes you would have thought he'd have done it with Red Dwarf X, being the first full series we'd had in years! Instead we had episodes that tended to be Rimmer or Lister-centric. Kryten didn't get much of a look-in. (Cat neither but he hasn't so far anyway, outside of Identity Within.)

    Oh wait. There was that episode where he became bonded with Cat, but that was still primarily a Lister episode.

    As long as the stories are good, I'm happy for all characters to get their place.

    Well just got back from the taping, had a great time.

    I'm sure there will be set reports available soon and you all probably have a good idea of how the characters and set are looking so all that leaves me to talk about is the story and I don't want to fall foul of the spoiler laws. The good news is all the cast were in good spirits throughout and the whole episode went pretty well, no frustrations or anything like that, very smooth operation. Rob Llewelyn was in particularly good spirits and even spent some time humping the warm up guy Ray, who was good fun.

    I'll just say it was a good fun episode and will probably become synonymous of the 'feel' of XI.

    Oh and if you are able to easily get to/from Pinewood Studios I would strongly advise you sit like a hawk on the Lost in TV Twitter account next Thursday afternoon, log into the website first then click the link when tweeted, it takes about ten seconds to apply, literally.

    I got there about 4pm, I sat down in the marquee and the guy giving out the wristbands got to the guy before me who had a standby ticket, he was about to give him a standby number but then realised they'd had a couple of cancellations already so gave him a wristband and then me as well.

    I'm glad you enjoyed it.

    She was ok though the sex scene with her Holly and Kill Crazy was just weird.

    A set report for the new episode is out!

    Not going to lie, the comparison to Trojan already gives me some misgivings about this one. I'm maybe a minority here but I honestly found Trojan to be a really weak episode....

    Another great set report. Agree on Trojan, but it seems really obvious that all the limitations from X are not happening on XI.
