Red Dwarf XII episode 6 review

This series finale full of nods to the past is sure to please the long-term fans, but overall it's more than simple fan service because there are plenty of new ideas in the mix too.

Red Dwarf XII - Skipper review

Some very familiar faces make a welcome return in the final episode in the current series.

Ian Wolf, On The Box, 16th November 2017

Will there be a Red Dwarf XIII?

Doug Naylor told in an exclusive interview: "We're on a bit of a roll at the moment which is great. The ratings are great, the boys had a really great time making it, want to do more." Although the show has not yet officially been recommissioned by the broadcaster, the 61-year-old went on to say of the next season: "Certainly, yes, I think everyone wants to do it including UKTV. Everyone had a blast doing the last 12."

Red Dwarf - Skipper review

Red Dwarf XII episode 5 review: M-Corp
