It’s been 349 days since an episode of Red Dwarf was released on UKTV Play. Well, they’re back at it this morning, or possibly this afternoon, or maybe even this evening. Yes, we’re not yet sure exactly when you’ll be watching a brand new episode of your favourite show; last year, Twentica was released at just gone 9am, so we’ll be surprised if it’s not there in time for lunch. Whenever it does arrive, the link will appear in large friendly letters below this paragraph. Unless you’re reading this after it’s been released, in which case the link is there in large friendly letters below this paragraph.
As should be plainly obvious by now, this discussion thread is intended for people watching online ahead of the TV broadcast. Our spoiler policy dictates that if you want to talk about Cured before 9pm next Thursday, you have to do so within a thread that bears the teal banner above. If you’ve not watched the episode yet, you’re strongly advised not to read the comments on this post for now, as it’ll be a spoilery free-for-all the very second the episode drops.
But do catch up before our first LIVE Instant Reaction DwarfCast of the series, which starts at 9pm on Friday. The link will appear on here, on our Twitter feed and our Spreaker page at 8:40pm, ready for you to listen and chat along live. We’d really love to hear from you on the night, as the live chat via Spreaker was a real highlight last year. If you can’t join us, the download version will be here on Saturday, and in the meantime, please use this thread for all your thoughts, opinions and theories on the series opener.
