Bump rather than start a new thread. It seems this has gone unnoticed. The new series of Red Dwarf is now officially confirmed and its title is Red Dwarf Series X.
Also mentioned is the fact they are hoping to have model effects, and shoot in front of a studio audience and that the episodes will be a full 30 minutes and broadcast in a 40 minute slot.
Although that bit about series X being technically correct (since BTE was series 9) is wrong, since in BTE they mentioned that series 9 had already aired, making BTE series 10 and this series 11
Sadly, it won't air for another 16 months
