Series 12 debuts on October 12th.
Haven't seen Skipper yet, but I have to agree. Most episodes easily pass the "Six Laugh Test", with a couple of episodes as good as anything harking back to the glory days of the early 90s. I think the decision to dispense with the gimmickry, lose the long-form narrative, and return to the sitcom essence of the show (ie stuck on Red Dwarf 3 million years in deep space) has forced the writers into writing, er, a sitcom. Really pleased for them all.Series XII is a win.
