Re: Red Dwarf series 9 (or is it 10?) in 2012 confirmed by Craig Charl

I guess I'm in the minority but I loved Series 8. The biggest scale, the ship full of characters, the comedy, I just thought it was a great reinvention of the show.

On the other hand, I absolutely hated Series 7. It was slow and depressing and nothing really happened. No Rimmer? And Kochanski was so horribly annoying that series; she was much better in 8.

^ Yeah, I quite liked Season 8.

I hope this new season has some jokes in it.

Having just finished watching all of Red Dwarf for the first time the other day, this is great to hear.

Dont listen to the hate. Back to Earth might not rank as among the best Dwarf, but it certainly isnt the worst thing they've ever done. It's worth a watch.

I'm definitely in the minority, since I think Season VII is the best year of the show.

Season VIII has "Cassandra" and a terrific ending, but I found it much funnier when I was 12. Starbug getting stuck up a rat's ass now? Not so funny.

STILL haven't seen Back to Earth.

Exactly! Remember, Bad Dwarf > most "good" TV.

Huzzah! Dwarf is back! Now just to finish the last two series or so............................
Although given that I'm an American, I have no idea how I'll watch it. Probably those "Leaked Video" they said they were worried about in the article !

The whole series is streaming on Netflix. I'm not sure about Back to Earth, but everything else is.

Given that it's a BBC worldwide production I would think it'll turn up on BBC America fairly soon after airing here, like Primeval is.

Re: Red Dwarf series 9 (or is it 10?) in 2012 confirmed by Craig Charl

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.

http://www.reddwarf.co.uk/news/2011/...arf-confirmed/

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

Does that mean it's going to have commercial breaks? That'll be weird.

Much as I'd like to see them keep the joke active, in the long run it's just too confusing for things like later syndication and DVD marketing. I'd have been happy to see it called Series IX, with BTE a standalone, but Series X works for me.

Wasn't Series XI supposed to be shot at the same time? I thought Charles had mentioned it.

I'm also curious to see if the complete original cast (including Chloe Annett, who I'm crushing on bigtime after watching Series VII and VIII again, along with her Doctor Who-inspired time travel detective series Crime Traveller) are involved, or if they plan to add some "new blood" as it were.

A hex on anyone who calls Chloe Annett a member of the original cast

If it were up to me i'd ask Clare Grogan to come back, she was much better.

But wasn't the statement that series 9 had already aired made as part of the joy squid's hallucination anyway, so can't really be considered to be true?

Yeah, that sucks.

Oh, yeah that is a good point. I'd actually forgotten it was all a hallucination, probably because they already did that idea 20 years ago

On the plus side though, at least it airs before the end of the world.

Re: Red Dwarf series 9 (or is it 10?) in 2012 confirmed by Craig Charl

They should do a Roseanne thing with Claire and Chloe in the same episode. Actually, I quite like Chole's Kochanski. I think she gets a bit of stick because the show became a bit less anarchic and a bit more mainstream when she came on board but it was still hugely enjoyable. BTE was even more muted and needs a lot more zip but I don't think that the absence of Chloe would be an asset to an ongoing series any more than the absence of Kryten (who also wasn't in the original cast) would be. She does bring an additional dynamic that the writers can work with even if she has to play the 'straight man' much of the time. If anything they need to change up Rimmer and recapture more of his early general awfulness which was so funny.
