Red Dwarf Makes a Comeback

Post by Lou on Thu Aug 28, 2008 6:38 am

The Sun wrote:SCI-FI geeks are in for a treat — Red Dwarf is making a comeback.

The cult show’s cast are reuniting for a final hurrah to celebrate a decade since the series ended.

Chris Barrie (Rimmer), Craig Charles (Lister), Danny John-Jules (Cat), Robert Llewelyn (Kryten) and Chloe Annett (Kochanski) have all agreed to take part.

Bosses at digital channel Dave have ordered four 30-minute shows for next year, which will take viewers on a trip down memory lane. They will see the stars pull on their old costumes for some original sketches and also feature some of Red Dwarf’s best bits.

An insider said: “Red Dwarf was one of the Britain’s most cherished shows, which while it seemed quite geeky, had a huge audience.

“At its height eight million viewers tuned in so it feels only right that we should have a celebration.

“All the major cast members have signed up — even those who have been in the news for the wrong reasons lately.”

The Sun revealed how 47-year-old John-Jules — also a regular on children’s series The Story Makers — allegedly went berserk with a 16-inch knife after two dustmen refused to empty his bin at his London home.

Charles, 44, has also courted controversy after being filmed smoking crack cocaine in the back of a taxi.

Red Dwarf, which centred around the crew of a mining spaceship, ran for eight series on the BBC from 1988 before it was finally axed in 1999.

The spoof sci-fi show made household names of Barrie and Charles — who now plays taxi driver Lloyd Mullaney in Coronation Street.
I used to love Red Dwarf, although like a few series it got a bit OTT toward to end. But I'll be looking forward to seeing the new one.

I liked it up till the Kochanski series. When she came into it, it went right downhill in my opinion. Evil or Very Mad

SPACE must be good for the skin — the Red Dwarf cast barely seems to have aged as they reunite for three new episodes.

Kryten ... Robert Llewellyn
The crew return to Earth — and visit Coronation Street — in the first shows since BBC2 axed the cult hit in 1999.

But Chris Barrie, 49, who is back as Rimmer, hopes there could be more new adventures to come.

He said: “It could be the start of something big. I think the atmosphere on set was that this is a new beginning rather than a one-off.”

Also back are Robert Llewellyn as Kryten, Danny John-Jules as Cat and Craig Charles as Lister. The shows air on digital channel Dave on April 10, 11 and 12.





I'm looking forward to watching this Smile

I thought the old episodes they showed were much better.
