Well, our spoiler policy states that if the cast post something dodgy on social media, it’s fair game. Earlier today, Danny John-Jules tweeted a series of images of each of the four main cast members displaying a little red badge, which reads “#Smileism”. Not many people will have seen these, as Danny posted them as replies to some guy, hence us only spotting them after ten hours. Now, I don’t know what #Smileism is, and frankly, I don’t much care. These pictures offer tiny glimpses of some of the main characters’ costumes for Series XI. There’s a high likelihood that they’ll be taken down at some point, so we’ve embedded the pictures below. So if you want to avoid all spoilers, look away now…

Here’s a close-up of Danny’s face, but you can make out some semi-interesting things on the edges of the frame. At the top, you can see that the hair is indeed a little fuzzier than normal, as revealed in our various set reports. It is however styled into the customary ponytail. Meanwhile, the jacket he’s currently sporting appears to be based on a twenty year old sofa my next door neighbours had in the mid nineties, and it’s paired with a turquoise shirt. We assume the Su Pollard specs are the model’s own.

OH MY GOD IT’S HIDEOUS. This is either Robert Llewellyn having his Kryten mask peeled off, or Robert Llewellyn being wiped down with a chamois leather after a particularly prolific bukkake party.

And here’s a picture of an old man in a blue jumper. This is presumably what Rimmer has on under his customary tunic. Check out the storage box beneath his armpit – could an oven glove be making an appearance in this series? We can’t wait to find out.

And this is perhaps the most interesting picture, despite it showing a costume that’s more or less the same as the one in Series X. But that’s good news, because it was such an instantly iconic look that it would be foolish to change it dramatically at this point. On the left hand side, you can make out a neckerchief type thing, which again is something that’s been hinted at in the set reports. Are the pink paint splodges new, or is it just that we rarely see the jacket this close up?

Quick – someone send Danny some more badges so that we can get more pictures. Tell him they need to be placed in the Starbug set this time…

  • He’s aged four years like the rest of us – the clock on the wall makes fun of us all.

    I guess it surprised me as in that photo he looks a lot older then con photos I’d seen him in earlier this year too.

  • His looking a little gaunt in that photo honestly, again I dunno if it’s just an unflattering photo but he kinda looks sick.

  • “You’ve reached that age, Listy. When you’re younger you can eat what you like, drink what you like and still climb into your 26 inch waist trousers and zip them closed. Then you reach that age – 24, 25 – your muscles give up they wave a little white flag and then without any warning at all, you’re suddenly a fat bastard.”

  • Chris Barrie is starting to look like Michael Palin… in a wig.

    > That Llewellyn image is the Cronenberg version of DNA.

    Or ‘Morph does Silence of the Lambs’?
