Dokko Posted January 27, 2009 Share Posted January 27, 2009 'Red Dwarf' crew to return to Earth The Red Dwarf crew will be returning to Earth when the cult sci-fi show returns to TV later this year. Red Dwarf: Return To Earth will reportedly see last human Dave Lister (Craig Charles) achieve his life-long goal of touching down on his home planet. The two-part special, which has been commissioned by digital channel Dave, will reunite original cast members Charles, Danny John-Jules, Chris Barrie and Robert Llewellyn one decade after the iconic comedy ended. Speaking to The Sun, Barrie confirmed the plot, saying: "Yes, Lister’s dream is about to come true. But like everything in Red Dwarf, nothing is straightforward." Written and directed by Red Dwarf creator Doug Naylor, the special episodes will kick off a special Easter weekend of Red Dwarf on Dave. Return To Earth will be followed by Red Dwarf: Unplugged, which has been described as a "no holds barred" episode with no sets, no effects and no autocue. The weekend will close with Red Dwarf: The Making Of Back To Earth, which will give viewers a behind-the-scenes look at the new production. The programme ran from 1988 until 1999, winning numerous awards including an international Emmy. It has sold more than seven million DVDs and videos across the world and at its peak, pulled in eight million viewers. Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
