As announced by Robert Llewellyn for Grant Naylor Productions this week at the UKTV seasonal press launch, the project is a short series of brand new specials to celebrate the 21st birthday of Red Dwarf. Doug Naylor will be masterminding the four half-hour instalments, and the regular cast will all be reprising their iconic roles. They are being made by GNP for UKTV’s free-to-air channel, Dave – our new best friends!
Two half hours will be new episodes. One episode will be a Making Of show. And the fourth will be a clips show. Odd assortment, but what Red Dwarf fan could complain about anything new coming out after all these years?
