A KREWFUL OF KRYTENS
“Our squeegees are loaded!”
In the run-up to series XII’s transmission, the fanbase were divided between excitement and apprehension at the prospect of this ‘gimmick’ episode, long-teased by Doug and the cast as “the one where everyone’s Kryten.” Would the script provide a plausible-enough in-universe reason for rubbering-up Lister (Craig Charles), Rimmer (Chris Barrie) and Cat (Danny John-Jules)? Would the audience be able to see beyond the uncanny look of the three usually fleshy smegheads? Would it be funny without being farcical?
