Red Dwarf: two more series announced

Smeg heads, rejoice! Doug Naylor has announced two more series of Red Dwarf, on Dave…

Here’s some good news – Doug Naylor, co-creator of Red Dwarf, has announced two more series of the cult sci-fi comedy.

Like series 10, the new 11th and 12th series will air on Dave. Of course, in typical Red Dwarf fashion, the series titles will actually be stylised Red Dwarf XI and Red Dwarf Xii.

Both series of the boys from the dwarf’s new adventures will shoot back to back later this year. They will air in 2016 and 2017 respectively. Before then, Dave have added a bespoke collection of Dwarf episodes to their online streaming service UKTV Play, to tide you over in the meantime.

It’s no surprise, really, considering that Red Dwarf: Back To Earth (the first new episodes of the show to be shown on Dave) earned the status of biggest non-terrestrial commission, »

‘Red Dwarf’ Gets Double Helping From Dave

2 May 2015 11:30 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Cult sci-fi sitcom Red Dwarf has been recommissioned by digital broadcaster Dave for two more series. The news was announced at the Dwarf-based Dimension Jump convention yesterday.

Created by Rob Grant and Doug Naylor and originally produced by the BBC between the late Eighties and late Nineties, the show’s central concept follows a mismatched team of (now quite old) space travellers killing time on a vast ship whose crew were wiped out by a nuclear explosion. Cast members have come and gone, but the core group of Craig Charles (Lister), Chris Barrie (Rimmer) and Danny John-Jules (Cat) have remained constant over four decades. Robert Llewellyn joined the group as mechanoid Kryten in Series 3 and has been a fixture ever since.

Following an attempt to finance a big screen version, the show was revived in 2009 for the awful miniseries Back To Earth, before its new home took the plunge and »

Red Dwarf is set to soar back onto our screens with two new series.

Red Dwarf XI will air on Dave in 2016, with Lister and crew back again for Red Dwarf Xii in 2017.

Are these Red Dwarf's 5 greatest episodes?

Craig Charles (Lister), Chris Barrie (Rimmer), Danny John-Jules (Cat) and Kryten (Robert Llewellyn) will all be back for the new episodes, written and directed by series co-creator Doug Naylor.

Naylor said: "[Dave's general manager] Steve North and everyone at UKTV have been so supportive of Red Dwarf from the start of their involvement with the show.

"Steve originally asked for more shows back in 2012 but frustratingly it's taken until now to get our ducks in a row and all the boys available at the same time. Now they are, we're all absolutely delighted."

Red Dwarf originally aired eight series on BBC Two between 1988 and 1999, before Dave revived »

Danny John-Jules: 'I'd welcome Red Dwarf co-stars on Death in Paradise'

6 January 2015 1:00 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Danny John-Jules has said that he would like to see his Red Dwarf co-stars appear in Death in Paradise.

The British actor - who plays Officer Dwayne Myers in the BBC crime series - told Digital Spy that he would welcome Chris Barrie, Craig Charles and Robert Llewellyn on the set if the chance came along.

"It would be really interesting," he said. "I think that providing they didn't bring them in to play a Rimmer-esque character or a Lister-esque character, I suppose anything's possible.

"We've had many other famous people performing in Death in Paradise so I don't see why not. We might."

A host of guest stars have appeared on the show during its first three series, while the likes of Hetti Bywater, Will Mellor and Tyger Drew-Honey will feature in the upcoming fourth run.

Speaking about the show's growing popularity, he said: "It's one of those shows »
