Dave has released a trailer and episode synopses for Red Dwarf XI, which premieres on 22 September, though it will also be available online via the UKTV Play website a week earlier. BUZZ has seen the first episode and it’s definitely on a par with Red Dwarf X, which was a mighty welcome return to form. Enjoy.
The Dwarfers find themselves in an alternative version of America where modern technology is prohibited, making Rimmer and Kryten illegal. The Dwarfers infiltrate the tech savvy underground and try to bring down the authoritarian regime.
When the Dwarfers investigate a crashed ship at the bottom of an ocean moon, Lister and Cat become trapped together and Lister’s nightmare begins. Meantime Rimmer and Kryten discover the ship is controlled by a dark force.
“Give And Take”

After a scandalous piece of good fortune Rimmer saves the life of a bio-printed Captain and is promoted, fulfilling his life-long dream of becoming an officer. He immediately opens an officer’s club, which is out of bounds to the lower orders, and uses the bio-printer to fill it with versions of himself.
Kryten has a mid-life crisis and changes his body cover from Mech grey to Ferrari red. The posse try and show him how much he’s achieved in life by taking him to visit a mechanoid from his old fleet.
“Can Of Worms”
