    UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE, all discussion of Red Dwarf XI and XII should only take place in THIS dedicated section. The previous series can continue to be discussed in the general "Red Dwarf Universe" section.

    Please be advised that as Red Dwarf XI has been available for less than a year, we are continuing to apply spoiler rules for that series to allow those who have not yet seen the episodes to remain unspoiled. We will advise when this rule has changed.

    RULES THAT APPLY TO SERIES XI AND XII:

    You must not mention episode titles or any plot/character/actor details of XI and XII episodes in the SUBJECT LINE of ANY thread until further notice. This is to protect users who want to view the general thread index without seeing spoiler details in thread titles.

    When creating a new thread in this section, if it is to contain plot details about either Series XI or Series XII, you must select the appropriate Thread Prefix (RDXI or RDXII) to apply to it when creating the thread. See the below image for where to select this prefix:

    If a thread in this forum has the [RDXI] prefix on it, you may discuss anything and everything that happens in the released episodes (subject to the above rule about not giving away details in thread titles). If it has the [RDXII] prefix, you may discuss anything that has been officially released as per the Series XII-specific rule outlined below.

    If a thread in this forum does not have an [RDXI] or [RDXII] prefix on it, you must not post any plot details relating to those episodes in it. This includes not discussing Series XI in threads only marked Series XII.

    (Note that you cannot add both prefixes to a single thread - as such, a thread may only ever contain spoilers about one series at a time.)

    RULES THAT APPLY TO SERIES XII ONLY:

    If you attended a recording or advance screening of a Red Dwarf XII episode, you may discuss your experiences in threads in this section. However you may NOT discuss any details relating to the content recorded, from plot spoilers to details of costumes/sets/characters/guest actors/etc.

    You may discuss officially-released information (such as the synopsis, or any cast announcements) in this section. If you're not sure what constitutes "officially-released", take as a rule of thumb anything published on (the non-forum bit of) this site, UKTV.co.uk, or the Twitter feeds @RedDwarfHQ and @Join_Dave.

    The episode titles erroneously printed on the XI steelbook may be mentioned, but only in the context that they are NOT the final titles of Series XII episodes.

    Before the broadcast of an episode, you may speculate about officially-released content at will, subject to the above-mentioned conditions about which threads to use and how to tag them. But if you were at the recording of an episode, you may not confirm or deny anybody else's speculation, nor elaborate on officially-released plot details. If you state a plot spoiler and cannot provide a verifiable source for it online or in print, it will be deleted and you may be banned.

    Unauthorised photographs taken on the Red Dwarf set are, and will always be, strictly prohibited.

    Hi all,

    There's a story on a comedy news website today regarding Series XII. Just to remind you that the details mentioned in that story should not be posted on this forum, as per the site's spoiler policy:

    No matter what anybody has said about the show at public events, and no matter how widely it's reported elsewhere, until something is officially confirmed by official Red Dwarf sources you can not post about it (even with links and spoiler warnings) on this forum. I'm posting this message as I have deleted one thread on the subject already, so I just want to be clear to everyone about the reasons for doing so.
