Red Dwarf - In The Press
Main News Stories About 'Red Dwarf':

15 February is definitely a day to celebrate if you love British telly. Twenty-five years ago on that fateful day in 1988, the creation from the mind palace of Rob Grant and Doug Naylor which introduced the world to the remaining on-board inhabitants of a mining spaceship owned and operated by the Jupiter Mining Corporation, became a reality with the premiere broadcast of Red Dwarf.

Smoke us a kipper, it was back for a tenth series. Just when we though Kryten, Rimmer, Lister and Cat had been consigned to a great big TV dustbin in space, UKTV's Dave saved and rebooted the sci-fi sitcom. The show may be 24 years old, but thanks to a return to studio audience filming, back-to-basics plots and set-ups and a refreshed cast that looked like they were having a ball, Dwarf was back to its early-'90s pomp. Admitting you're a fan of the show is still about as cool as wearing granny's knitted Christmas jumper, but we're smegheads and we're proud. Roll on series 11.

The last episode of the buffed and polished tenth series. BBC bosses must be wondering which buffoon decided that they didn't want another series, because the latest outing has been the sci-fi comedy's finest since its early '90s pomp. Smegging ace.
It's the final episode of the resurrected Red Dwarf, with a few unexpected visits and one or two flashbacks to Rimmer's somewhat embarrassing past bringing this refreshingly upbeat and surprisingly strong series to an end.

It's one of those magic Red Dwarf moments that punctures the technobabble bubble of science fiction: the boys are under attack, the computers are down and the scanners aren't working. As Lister frets about not knowing what his pursuers are or where they're coming from, Kryten has a novel idea - "How about we look out of the window?" he suggests.

Rebecca Blackstone (aka Pree) has good old chinwag with our residant man of mystery Ben Shires about what it's like to be a computer.

Time to bid a fond farewell to the Red Dwarf crew again as their well-received comeback concludes. It doesn't quite end with a bang but it does have several big explosions as the boredom of deep space gets the gang into trouble with the deadly Simulants. It's up to Rimmer to save the day. A holographic message from his overbearing father gives him newfound inner strength in a very unexpected way as the shameful truth about his lineage is finally revealed.
This wasn't a particularly good episode, but it had more individual moments of amusement than previous half-hours this year.
