The danger of constantly celebrating the past

Nostalgia. Easy promotability. A blend of old and new. Low risk. Lots of press. And a brand new half hour to be written by Clement and Frenais, writers of the near-perfect Porridge. What's not to like? As a consumer of comedy, I'm fine with all of the above obviously. As a writer of comedy, my feelings are slightly more mixed.

Red Dwarf Series 11 - everything you need to know

Tom Eames, Digital Spy, 20th October 2015

All 10 series of Red Dwarf ranked

Twenty seven years, umpteen light years, several different realities and a curry monster later, and Red Dwarf is now officially the second longest running sci-fi series of all time (it'd be first if it weren't for that pesky Doctor).

Red Dwarf, and the movie that never was

A Red Dwarf movie was announced in 2000, and news on it would follow for years afterwards. So: what happened?
