In the second series, broadcast shortly after the first, the crew meet Kryten for the first time. Holly's new invention of the 'Holly Hop Drive' promises to take Red Dwarf back home to Earth in a mere instant. What it manages, however, is to flip the ship across the fifth dimension divide and into a parallel universe.
The Dwarfers get into more trouble in the 1993 series. Their adventures include meeting a creature called a psiren, saying hello to a really nice guy called Legion, dealing with yet another ship virus, meeting older versions of themselves and braving the fearsome and ugly 'Kinitawowi' tribe.
The final Red Dwarf series for a decade was broadcast in 1999. The entire crew of Red Dwarf had been re-created by the Nanobots and so Kryten, Cat, Rimmer and Lister had a whole host of people to try and avoid again including Captain Hollister and the Space Corps. Trouble is, they're in jail. This series was considered a low point for the show, and the programme was axed after this series.
Revived for digital channel Dave, Back To Earth - a short, three episode series - marked the return to Red Dwarf, and the first shows since the millennium. It was filmed using single-cameras and without a studio audience giving it a cinematic feel... but perhaps losing the feeling of being a sitcom in the process.
After a long wait, we returned to mining vessel Red Dwarf for a tenth series in 2012... with the show back in the studio, recorded in front of a live audience. Space battles, quantum entanglement, and love triangles with snack dispensers - just some of problems facing the four Dwarfers in this series.
This series sees two of the Dwarfers' dreams come true: Rimmer accidentally saves the life of a Space Corps Captain and is promoted to Officer, while Cat takes time off from being in love with himself to fall in love with a female Cat with a secret. Meantime, Lister wakes up to discover a deranged droid has stolen some of his body parts and Kryten has a mid-life crisis and considers leaving the Dwarfers for a younger crew. The posse also find themselves in an alternative America where modern technology is outlawed, making both Kryten and Rimmer illegal.
