Red Dwarf

Dear Red Dwarf Fan,

Space battles, quantum entanglement, and love triangles with snack dispensers are just some of problems facing the boys from the Dwarf as they return in a brand new series - launching exclusively on Dave on Thursday 4th October at 9pm.

Red Dwarf X, the 10th series of the legendary sci-fi sitcom, reunites the much-loved original cast of Chris Barrie (Rimmer), Craig Charles (Lister), Danny John-Jules (Cat) and Robert Llewellyn (Kryten) with six episodes recorded in front of a live studio audience.

The brand new series, written and directed by Doug Naylor, begins with the Dwarfers' mining ship still creaking though the wastelands of unchartered deep space, but the posse soon stumble upon the mysteriously abandoned SS Trojan. As they inspect the ship, Rimmer receives an SOS distress call from an old foe and is suddenly faced with the dilemma of his life.

Dave is available on Sky channel 111, Virgin Media channel 128, and Freeview channel 12 in the UK. Red Dwarf X will also be shown on Dave HD (Sky and Virgin subscribers only). As part of a brand new service, each episode will also be available to view online at joindave.co.uk for seven days following broadcast. The series will be released on DVD and Blu-ray on 19th November, and episodes will be available for download on iTunes 24 hours after broadcast.

The full broadcast listing for your diary is as follows:

  • Episode 1 - Trojan - Thu 4th Oct, 9pm (BST)
  • Episode 2 - Fathers and Suns - Thu 11th Oct, 9pm (BST)
  • Episode 3 - Lemons - Thu 18th Oct, 9pm (BST)
  • Episode 4 - Entangled - Thu 25th Oct, 9pm (BST)
  • Episode 5 - Dear Dave - Thu 1st Nov, 9pm (GMT)

You can also pre-order the boxset now at Amazon.co.uk (DVD/Blu-ray) and Play.com (DVD/Blu-ray).

They’re all getting old. I came across the last one they did in 2009, a sort of revival ten years after the original series ended (it had an eleven year run). It was depressing and not at all very funny. I guess I can do without the equivalent of watching Ginger Rogers dancing with her walker (or Madonna doing anything).

I also want to thank you for posting this. We always loved RED DWARF. I am glad they are bringing it back, even if it is for a short run. Have to pass this along to my extended family ASAP :)

I’m still ticked that Red Dwarf disappeared from Netflix.

I hope this isn’t the case but it looks like it is only available to be viewed online IF you are located in Great Brittan.

Dang. Up there with being on the dog’s milk or putting the salad cream in the fridge. I need to order a vindaloo to go with this beer I’ll be crying in....

Oh no.....after the last special I’m more than a little wary of a tenth season.

Have you seen the "Drunk and on Drugs Happy Funtime Hour"?

Bizarre is way too little of an understatement.
