BEST EPISODE

“Kr­y­sis” (11.05): The uni­verse is suf­fer­ing a midlife cri­sis; it’s the best Hitch­hiker’s gag Hitch­hiker’s never did.

DID YOU SPOT?

There’s a new sign on Star­bug say­ing “Not Alert”, pre­sum­ably a ref­er­ence to the clas­sic “chang­ing the light bulb” gag.

MOST RED DWARFY GAG

“Have no fear sir. I only trashed in­for­ma­tion I con­sid­ered friv­o­lous and id­i­otic.” “Without check­ing with me first?” “And you are?”

STAND­OUT GUEST STAR

Snacky the snack dis­penser and his amaz­ing psy­chother­apy skills in “Give And Take” (11.03). Is his egg-flip­per an­tenna a gag at the ex­pense of the Daleks’ egg whisk guns?

BEST MO­MENT

The mul­ti­ple Rim­mers in the of­fi­cers’ mess in “of­fi­cer Rim­mer” (11.04) are bril­liantly re­alised, helped by great per­for­mances from Chris Barrie. The snooty waiter Rim­mer is bril­liant.
