    Are these new comments from Chris? I seem to remember something similar being said by him a few months ago...ie "plans are afoot" but nothing definative

    The article is dated today, and it does Chris told the article writer this information. Seems new, anyway.

    "Six half hours"

    I'm liking that as it hopefully means no more multiparters with material stretched further than Kryten's underpant elastic was in DNA!

    :lol: Powerful incentives indeed. I bow to Andrew's incredible will power.

    I'm prepared to wait as long as it takes as long as its "officially official" that it will be happening. "It will be going to have happened"? ;-)

    I wonder if shooting two seasons in a row has much of a precedent in UK programming?

    One big advantage I can see with doing it here is that we have an aging cast and shooting it this way will at least avoid further noticeable aging although I do kind of hope that the age of the cast plays some part in the comedic dynamic of the new show. As Craig alluded in his radio blabber the boys are all older and fatter now and there is no reason this should be hidden when it comes to the dialogue of a new series.

    I really hope they are making two new series, yet only Craig Charles has mentioned making two.

    Here's a thought. Chris Barrie has apparently confirmed that they are calling it "Series Ten". Isn't that kind of asking for a wave of people confusing themselves with the whole "takes place after series 10" that BTE already caused once.

    I'm still in favour of the show being given a new name along the lines of the "Red Dwarf: Reloaded" that someone suggested a while back. It would help to differentiate itself from the Beeb era.

    I wouldn't mind a "Reloaded" title of some sort, but then again, I'm apathetic to it if they decide to just continue calling it Red Dwarf Series (number).

    I just want this to be confirmed by Naylor, Andrew, and the website already! :-)

    Okay, okay. The Red dwarf news, everything that Craig said and Chris Barrie and I confirmed is still the same. New series in 2011

    I'm wondering where Andrew is at the moment...he's been conspicously absent from our ravings, insecurities, pessimism, optimism and general excitement.
