Red Dwarf duo in court battle

They were childhood friends before achieving professional success writing scripts for Spitting Image - and subsequent stardom as creators of the cult sci-fi sitcom, Red Dwarf. But, alas, those halcyon days are very much behind them and their partnership has collapsed into a black hole. For I can disclose that Doug Naylor, one half of the duo who dreamed up Dave Lister - played by comedian and DJ Craig Charles - and his fellow misfit spaceship companions, has just initiated a dramatic High Court action against his former co-scriptwriter and one-time best friend, Rob Grant.

The Red Dwarf chronicles - Series III

While the differences between Red Dwarf series I and II were miniscule, the changes between series II and III could not have been greater. In all truth, it would probably be quicker to list what didn't change between these series. It was one of the greatest shifts in Red Dwarf history, but the risk paid off.
