Geektown Awards – British TV Show of the Year
Union Jack flags at the ready, it’s the British TV Show Of The Year category!

However, as they say in Highlander “there can be only one…” winner… Here are the nominees.
Nominees: Black Mirror, Class, Crazyhead, Humans, Line of Duty, Red Dwarf, The Night Manager, Upstart Crow, Victoria, Wasted
Silver: The Night Manager
And The Winner Is…
A stunning return to form for the crew of the ‘small rouge one’ as Red Dwarf takes the top spot for British TV Show of the Year. It’s taken a couple of seasons on Dave for the team to find it’s footing again, but Season XI really has been on a par with some of those earlier BBC episodes. From Kryten and Rimmer finding themselves on a planet where they are illegal, to Lister losing body parts to a deranged droid, it has all the hallmarks of the boys from the Dwarf being firmly back in the saddle.
Not only were they back for Season XI, but they also filmed Season XII at the same time, meaning there is another series of Red Dwarf in the can, and ready to air on Dave in 2017.
