Dave will be having a geektastic evening every Thursday from 12 October. Because that’s not only when Red Dwarf XII debuts (at 9pm) but following that will be the series two premiere of Zapped! (at 9.40pm) the fantasy sitcom starring James Buckley and Paul Kaye as a very dodgy wizard (read our review of the first series here). Buckley is also guest starring in Red Dwarf XII as a droid but the producers are keeping quiet about which exact episode that’s in for the moment.
Guest stars for Zapped! series two include Phil Daniels, Rufus Hound, Simon Day and former Doctor Who Sylvester McCoy as the boss of the fairies.
