So, it seems official. Red Dwarf will be coming back to the small screen (so far definitely on Dave, other companies are also looking into screening it) in 2012 for a six episode series. Series number ten. Where's nine? I guess this follows from the Easter Specials, then, where we were told about series nine, how brilliant it was and -- we'll never see it! It'll just be the series where Kochanski dies (such a shame) and I guess, if we want to be pedantic, when Rimmer did too and became a hologram again (some fans are hoping that we'll find out about that in the new series, and I have to say it would be pure Rimmer gold to see him die and become a hologram again. Imagine his reaction). Anyway, Danny John-Jules has been tweeting like a fiend about this, which is how I found out about it. There have been a few script rehearsals now, and the set is being built. And, it might make people glad to hear, it'll be back in front of a live audience. Which suggests the small sets and more situational comedy of the old series (although I'm still one of those people who did enjoy the Easter episodes for being -- as it says on the tin -- special and wider scoped). Here's Robert Llewellyn talking about it: http://llewblog.squarespace.com/red-dwarf/ And make-up test! I know people'll have their doubts about this. Me? I am looking forward to it a ridiculous amount!
