Series 12 - Episode 2 Siliconia



Kryten (Robert Llewellyn) is being taken for granted and matters come to a head when the Dwarfers encounter a group of robot freedom fighters called the Mechanic Intergalactic Liberation Front (an acronym which doesn’t escape notice). Will the lovable droid find justice for all those years under the yoke of these idle ne’er-do-wells? Or will the lads see the error of their oppressive ways? There is often a veil of social satire to this show but the overall dynamic – familiar, fun and never preachy – mostly feels like putting on a pair of cosy old slippers. And I mean that in a good way.


The team are arrested by the Mechanoid Intergalactic Liberation Front, while Kryten is given a new life of pampering and luxury. Sci-fi comedy, starring Craig Charles, Danny John-Jules, Chris Barrie and Robert Llewellyn.
