Red Dwarf voyages back to Earth
Cult comedy Red Dwarf is returning to TV, 21 years after its initial launch.

The show has been resurrected by digital channel Dave for a two-part Easter weekend special, which sees the cast finally return to Earth.
This could be interesting...after a disappointing last series, can they end this classic show on a high note?

I'll definitely be watching, and I'll be interested to see how it ends, too. I'd love to see it end on a high.:)

My friend mentioned this to me sometime late last year and I got very excited (and warned him I may have to kill him if he was lying to me) Seeing it on the BBC website last night finally made it official. I can't wait, I actually can't wait, I adore Red Dwarf. I can't wait to see Rimmer again, the man is a legend!

Hurrah! Saw an interview with Robert Llewellyn last year where he was suggesting that a one-off special might be on the cards, and now we have confirmation! Can't wait...:cool:

I'm also looking forward to see what comes out and will certainly be watching avidly. However, it will be with a sense of trepidation. There's a fad for collecting old casts and doing specials ("To the Manor Born - Silver Anniversary" and "This Life 10" or whatever it was called)... and they're not always that good. "Classic" serials tend to gain aplomb through rose-tinted memories and trying to recreate such material is more than likely to miss the mark... But, I'll still be glued to the TV on transmission day...
