An 'everybody's Kryten' episode has been (more than) hinted at since long before the last series. Since the last series (XI) and this coming series were made virtually back-to-back (I believe there was a three week break between the filming of series XI and XII), nobody was sure when, or really whether, it would happen across the two series, and certainly nobody knows how the plot might conjure such a gimmick. One thing's likely; eco-pile and self proclaimed wet liberal Robert Llewellyn, the actor who plays Kryten, probably wishes it had happened in the old days when his make-up was especially uncomfortable and took hours to apply, just so the others could live his hell for a while.It's back!
Er, in the autumn. Date TBC. That publicity photo raises all sorts of questions, mind you.
EDIT: Incidentally, the series XI steelbook blu-ray was initially sent in a cardboard sleeve which accidentally displayed the provisional production episode titles of series XII. One of those was 'Siliconia', another was 'Mechocracy'. Those titles were changed even before the mistake, but my suspicion is that one of those was the production title of the episode from which comes the promo pic, probably 'Mechocracy'.
