Sure, BACK TO EARTH was a bit of televisual travesty (did anyone like it?) but that doesn't mean we shouldn't be keeping our fingers crossed that co-creator Doug Naylor has learnt some valuable lessons and can actually return the show to its former glory with RED DWARF's tenth season, airing on Dave from October 4th. So far we've had the titles of the 6 eps revealed (here), a trailer (here), and now we have the official poster and series synopsis to whet our appetites. Check 'em both out below...
Space battles, quantum entanglement, and love triangles with snack dispensers, are just some of problems facing the boys from the Dwarf as they return in a brand new series. Red Dwarf X, the 10th series of the legendary sci-fi sitcom, airs exclusively on Dave and Dave HD this October.
Red Dwarf X returns with 6 x 30 min stand alone episodes, recorded in front of a studio audience and reunites the much loved original cast of Chris Barrie (Rimmer), Craig Charles (Lister), Danny John-Jules (Cat) and Robert Llewellyn (Kryten).
The brand new series, written and directed by Doug Naylor, begins with the Dwarfer's mining ship still creaking though the wastelands of unchartered deep space, but the posse soon stumble upon the mysteriously abandoned SS Trojan. As they inspect the ship Rimmer receives an SOS distress call from an old foe and is suddenly faced with the dilemma of his life.
