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.
For the very first time, the rest of the crew discover just how it feels to be Kryten when they're arrested by the Mechanoid Intergalactic Liberation Front. The Dwarfers come across a ship where criticism is illegal, and another where the crew have developed a cure for evil. The Cat struggles to choose between Kryten or Rimmer when the ship's machines revolt, while Lister discovers a simple update of the Red Dwarf's latest software could be a matter of life or death. Finally, Rimmer decides to leave this universe in search of a parallel one where hopefully he isn't such a massive loser.
