Default New Red Dwarf....

I found this whilst researching the New Thunderbirds series:

If it works then there is no reason they couldn't commission new series of other classics, smart marketing at "Dave" and a world of future possibilities....

I actually thought Back to Earth was pretty good, but I'm so used to my comedy not having a laugh track nowadays. All of my favorite programs seem to be done this way.

Default not sure if this was posted anywhere

Just to confirm the new series is going ahead

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

The facts are:
  • The series will feature Rimmer, Lister, Cat and Kryten, once again played by Chris Barrie, Craig Charles, Danny John-Jules and Robert Llewellyn. (Y'know, unless anyone starts demanding a gold-plated dressing room or something.)
  • Each episode will be approximately 30 minutes in duration. This is a big difference from the 23 minute episodes of Back to Earth. To compensate for this fuller length and commercial break, the new episodes will be shown in a 40 minute slot, much as current Dwarf repeats are on Dave.
  • There will be six episodes in the series. The numbering of 'Series X' being both a pretty good promotional title for the channel, and technically correct since Back to Earth was a 'ninth series'.
  • Shooting will take place this coming November, December and January, with broadcast slated for September 2012. That apparent delay is born of common sense - after its complex post-production, Red Dwarf X would be ready to broadcast in the summer, but that's a time of low audiences. An autumn launch will make the very most of Dave's new commission.

Bill.

Can't wait to see it.

Very kindly shown around the studio by Bill and Andy during the making of Hitchhikers and also viewed the test models for a new series of Red Dwarf. I remember Krytons leg with the special effect dusting of icing sugar. A very special day for a very big Thunderbird fan and it was so nice to see and talk about the late great Derek Meddings and how his influence carries on.

Hi Guys!

I've heard that DVD and Blu-Ray release is November. So count back from that for transmission! Yes, I have no idea either! Just hope everyone likes the end result!

Cheers, Bill.

Hi Guys!
Check out the Dave Site every Friday for an update!
As you will see the Midget is back - can't say any more!
So, on this series, we worked on something old, something new, and something definetely blue!
Cheers, Bill.

Dave TV have started releasing a few images of the new Red Dwarf model. Looks like Bill and the team have done a great refurb. Also, a pretty hefty cut and shut job, as it's lost about two thirds of the length! Looking forward to seeing it in action.

I never particularly liked the "stretch limo" Red Dwarf. I preferred the original model. I also disliked the "remastered" first series, which should have been called "fiddled-about-with" rather than remastered.

Hi Guys!
Hope you like the Red Dwarf model refurb. One problem, in the original shoot, was the detail. It was originally made for Film - many years ago! Now Digital is hyper critical! Damn those Red Epic cameras! Thankfully we also built some models from scratch - so we only have our selves to blame if they don't meet with your approval.
Hope You like! Till Oct.4.

Cheers, Bill.
