In just a few hours time we can sit down and finally enjoy (subscription to Dave required) the long-awaited new series of Red Dwarf!
The stars of the show (minus Danny John-Jules who is out in Guadeloupe filming a second series of Death in Paradise) recently chatted with Digital Spy about the new show, which drops some of the OTT aspects of the eighth series (and the sci-fi heavy elements of the show since the mid-1990s) and goes “back to basics” with a handful of sets and a live audience.
Chris Barrie considers the new run as “classic Red Dwarf”.
It’s classic Red Dwarf, as we knew it from series one to eight, which I guess the fans are really comfortable with. It could well be some of the best shows we’ve ever made.
To really get you in the mood, here’s a trailer via Digital Spy.
And finally, some sneak peaks…
Red Dwarf X starts tonight with the episode Trojan on Dave (Sky 111, Virgin 128, Freeview 12) at 9pm! For more coverage, Dan Martin’s piece in The Guardian is certainly worth a read.
