I would like to see future series of Red Dwarf go out to 35 or 45 minutes. I know XII is already filmed so that's not happening, but for for XIII+. The episodes in XI all felt rushed and often truncated. It felt like we were a stone skimming over the top of a story, when I want to sink to the bottom. They had abrupt endings, and the resolutions often felt out of place in terms of the story. The viewer is enjoying the story and suddenly the resolution swoops in because we're at the 23 minute mark and need to end. Watching XI felt like being on a payphone and being told your money had run out, and you didn't get to finish your conversation. In Officer Rimmer he resigns because he needs to get through a door, then they blast it and the credits roll before you even see the shot. And all he has to say is "I resign". Who'd he say it to, the computer? In Can of Worms, the Cat can't kill the Polymorphs and spends the whole episode MIA because he's in a sort of crazy trance off-camera, then he suddenly reappears in the last thirty seconds to resolve the episode by shooting them all. When asked for an explanation as to how he knew who the Polymorphs were, we just get "a mother knows her own". I wanted an explanation as to why he suddenly decided he could kill them afterall when the whole episode he couldn't. It just feels like the episodes are being crushed into this artificial 23-minute TV slot. If the TV execs say no, then does Red Dwarf even need to be on TV? It has such a large and dedicated fanbase that it could just release new episodes online or straight to DVD, and have episodes as long as it wants.
