    Well, it’s been a year or so since the brief flurry of controversy when Krytie TV was missing from the initial upload to iPlayer. But it seemed Red Dwarf’s year on the service expired earlier today, whilst they obviously reset the timer, and it seems to be back: this time minus Confidence & Paranoia. Is anyone else able to see it on there?

    Confidence & Paranoia being missing is obviously a temporary glitch, but the bigger news is that the entire Dave era is no longer there!

    Holy shit has it been a whole year?! Time is going too fast, like tears in rain etc. 😢

    Oh man, it would be kind of a shame to have just 1 year of all of Red Dwarf being on iPlayer. Especially as for Back to Earth that means it had like 10 months of being available to stream for free, in total.

    Let’s just hope it’s not too late to edit the “X% of Red Dwarf on BBC iPlayer” G&T article again.

    And Series XI missing from UKTV Play. (Let’s not fuck about discussing UKTV Play and Back To Earth.)

    What’s all that about, then?

    Whoa, really???

    So in 2016, UKTV Play gave us ‘Give & Take’, and now it’s taken it away. Maybe they lost all of their copies of Series XI before they were first due to upload it, and they had to travel to the future to steal it and take it back to the past.

    Strangely, the last episode I fully watched on iPlayer was Back to Earth, and the last episode I fully watched on UKTV Play was Officer Rimmer, so I can’t help but feel I’m being targeted here.

    Thank God Krytie TV’s still there though.

    Britbox Canada still has all of it…

    It lists Back to Earth as “Season IX – Back to Earth” though…

    Before you ask, The Promised Land is just listed as that.

    We also still have An Unearthly Child…

    No Shada or The Crusades, for example, so getting the Blurays has certainly been worth it though.

    C&P is back on iPlayer now, at least.

    There will be no justice until EVERY episode with an ampersand in its title is free.

    Including The Promised L&.

    With UKTV Play the availability is usually related to when it was last broadcast, isn’t it? They stay on for a year (or whatever) after last broadcast but then disappear if the episode hasn’t been rebroadcast within that window.

    Maybe XI just hasn’t been on TV for a while.

    Well I’m shocked if Red Dwarf doesn’t have “box set” status for UKTV, but if it’s true, “UKTV specifically chose not to repeat Series XI for long enough that it alone dropped off UKTV Play” is not any less weird to me than “UKTV Play specifically chose to remove Series XI from UKTV Play”.

    Maybe they just took it off so that they can claim it as a “U&Dave Exclusive” when they launch that.

    It’s depressing to know that this may be the best meme I’ll ever make.

    Interesting that they still have a Dave-era publicity shot as the header.
