    this is great news neither the less

    but i wonder why it will be 2 series? i prey that wont be because of a long drawn out storyline that will last 2 series

    id very much like different storys for each episode, even if search for kochanski is a sub-plot

    I think your last statement is accurate. Was reading through the making of BTE segments on the website today, and they mentioned one of the significant events of BTE was giving Lister a sense of purpose, a new mission. Getting back to Earth had not been enough for him anymore--now it's finding Kochanski and winning her back. Much as how the ultimate goal throughout the series was "to get back to Earth and have a wash", the subplot is now likely to be "find Kochanski". But just as getting back to Earth didn't become the all consuming plot of every episode, I don't expect the search for Kochanski to be any different.

    As you can see, many are still sceptical about the future of Red Dwarf, refusing to get their hopes up. :-D

    Hmm....

    DannyJohnJules tweeted "I wouldn't put money on what Craig says. Was he in a pub at the time of his statement? Can you trust the person who told him?".
    :?:?

    ^Sounds like tongue in cheek to me with the "pub" remark, IMO.

    It sounds like he wasnt meant to say anything yet then, going by Danny and Robert's tweets. I did wonder why an official announcement was made on radio 2 at 1.30am on a friday morning, rather than on the official site. I was hoping it would get mentioned on his show on saturday night as I knew people would email in and ask, but it was a pre-record this week :roll:

    Probably to make sure he didn't say anything he wasn't supposed to!

    Danny's and Robert's tweets, whilst uncertain, do seem encouraging!

    I've never followed a twitter account this much before.

    Another fan asked "in the absence of information, allow me to speculate wildly. The series is being picked up by a major network. Is it...is it...go on!"

    To which Rob replied: "I wish I could, but I don't know when. It should be the next few days, fingers crossed. "

    So maybe we'll get something "officially official" in the next few days?
