    All the brexit negotiations were postponed. Michel Bariner has coronavirus. Brexit is not the thing causing problems now... :roll:

    Recently saw the Trailer, and it looks promising enough. Sometimes it feels like Doug tries to shove a movie worth of ideas into a single episode, so hopefully it turn out well....but then again I also remember how poor Back to Earth was!

    They’ve been doing that for years. Look at Thanks for the Memory or The Inquisitor. Those ideas could have been American tv series!

    Yeah I have Freeview and no problem picking up most channels in HD but for some reason it's rare I can pick up 'Dave' at all. And when I can the quality is so bad it keeps freezing all the time. I hate to be picky but I'd rather not watch it like that

    Still curious as to when it will be posted on UKTV

    Have you tried replacing your aerial or even the lead? make sure the metal contact that pokes through the brown lead, actually goes in to aerial point. It does make a difference.

    I have quite a powerful indoor HD aerial and can watch most channels in great quality with no problem at all. For some reason there are only a few like Dave that I have trouble with.

    Oddly enough I can get Dave ja Veu better but the picture quality isn't great.

    Anyway. It's rare I watch regular TV as I normally just stream stuff online. And rather than dishing out for a new aerial I think I'll wait until it's released on UKTV so I can watch it properly in all its glory. Hopefully they will post it soon after it's broadcast.

    Looking forward to this little jem, some much needed escapism in these times. And not long to wait now either!

    Stay safe peeps ✌️

    Does that mean you’ll have to watch it an hour after everyone else??!

    Nah. I'll wait until it's available on UKTV for a better viewing experience. Still no word on when this will be.

    So we know the date, we know the title, we've all seen the trailer... but do we know what time this is going to be broadcast yet?

    I hope for something alone the lines of the best new Red Dwarf episodes like Give and Take in terms of quality, and not something along the lines of Timewave. Either way, I hope it proves to be quality lockdown entertainment!

    I read it cause I'm just a mad lad like that, it basically tells you how Holly comes back and what that bit in the trailer of Rimmer changing into his old uniforms was about.

    The review is pretty positive, and only criticizes the cat story not being interesting and who the movie chooses to focus on (though from what they say, it comes across as a positive for me as I was never particularly fond of the overlooked character anyway).

    No spoilers for me so I'll give the article a miss. I want to go into this as blind as I possibly can. But the 3 out of 5 rating disappoints me. Perhaps us fans will like it better than the critics.

    TV was dismal. Really pathetic. Ronnie Barker is set on a disastrous course - comedy set in a prison ...utterly foolish in conception
