    For XI and XII, it sounds like a lot of the groundwork for getting the show up and running has already been done with RDX - such as the sets. And I think Doug's been working on the scripts for a good while now.

    See, there you go, even worse!!;-) I actually like season X a lot as it has the feel of the boys/man older now, settled in their ways and having bonded over the years. I do think that the Rimmer scenes in Dear Dave could have been written better, more on how being demoted would wound him, despite rank not existing anymore. Also I think that the best bits of the dialogue between him and Lister were cut out. Maybe instead of writing more plot Doug could have written a second Marooned type thing with them going through letters, discussing getting older and wondering what might be in store for them.

    i actually don't like the Rimmer subplot in dear dave, i often zone out every time those scenes are on so i don't actually know what exactly is going on but all i know is it feels a little bit 20 years to late as rimmer hasn't obsessed about that stuff since series 1 and even then it was only 2 or 3 episodes.

    Also the JMC computer isn't a great plot device

    I'm liking those green pipes and stuff. Perhaps a trawl through Starbug's engine room...?

    I need to say I'm quite happy about the return of location shoots in series XI and XII, the lack of them was another thing that lead to series X feeling a lot more limited then past series'. While I can't speak for the end results of the new episodes themselves, I will say it at least feels like it's a more complete and confident production.

    My guess is to keep secret who it is, Doug and co definitely like to keep a lot of secrets with regards to Red Dwarf's production and only give us controled dribbles of information.

    The first "proper" inside shot of Starbug reminded me of a submarine, and this picture more so.

    (praying I get a ticket)

    Interesting! So there is a section beyond the cockpit...
    That shot does feel a bit more Starbug to me than the previous shots.

    I confess the new set is starting to grow on me provided that the lighting doesn't took as intensely blue as the other one.
