Fans of the “small rouge one,” as Robert Llewellyn might put it, will enjoy this new clip from Red Dwarf’s tenth series no end.
Featuring The Cat (Danny John-Jules) and Kryten (Llewellyn), the scene plays out in a lab where the mechanoid’s been running tests on some crystals which have “a curious power of synchronicity” – causing the pair to start speaking in sync.
Genuinely funny and bolstered by the presence of a studio audience, the clip hints that Red Dwarf X is going to be a genuine return to form for the show:
Describing the new series earlier this week, Robert Llewellyn said: “I could try and be all self-deprecating and depressed because I don’t want to raise your hopes too much, but I just can’t do that. Red Dwarf X is way better than I ever dared hope.”
The actor also released the new series’ episode titles on Wednesday, some of which look suspiciously like references to the show’s past.
While Red Dwarf X doesn’t currently have a confirmed airdate, Llewellyn told fans to expect the new series to hit screens around October.
