As the audience filming for Red Dwarf X is now well and truly upon us, I suppose we better tackle the thorny issue of spoiler policy. This is what we’ve come up with, with not an inconsiderable amount of effort.
The Ganymede & Titan writers will not reveal any spoilers on the site at any time. This includes the main story and developments of any episode including any actors that have not yet been officially confirmed. We will, however, be discussing the sets (unless there’s a particular set that would spoil a part of the story), episode titles (again, so long as the title isn’t something like “LISTER FINALLY FUCKS KOCHANSKI” or, “DIBBLEYWORLD”), the performance of the main cast, the general quality of the writing and basically anything even remotely tangential that will only serve to inform you of our opinions and increase your anticipation of the series.

This is ever so slightly more complicated. We want to adhere to wishes of Grant Naylor Productions and not reveal any spoilers on the site but we also understand the desire to either discuss plot details with people who were also at the recording or read entire plots verbatim. We would suggest that commenters adhere to our own editorial policy and keep plot spoilers away from the comments or forum. An ideal solution for people on G&T who want to discuss plots and other spoilery details would be to link to other sites that are more geared to this sort of mass spoiler discussion, keeping the hot stuff away from G&T.
Obviously discussion of the recordings is positively encouraged but the bottom line is we ask that the utmost respect is shown to the vast majority of fans who do not want any plot details spoiled. Use common sense, show respect and we will promise to do the same when moderating your comments.
Now that that’s out of way, we hope everyone has fun in what is sure to be the most insane and exciting few weeks in recent Red Dwarf memory (and, yes, I’m even including the excitement surrounding the release of Red Christmas).
