Don't ask why but I'd be interested to know what kind of money they're spending on the new series and what it is in proportion to the earlier series. It's probably hard to tell by looking at the sets because Back to Earth was very expensive looking when it's actual budget was rather the opposite. I'm led to believe that the budget is bigger than atleast Back to Earth both because they are able to film in front of an audience and because they are using stage K which is one of the bigger ones. I'm kind of unsure because the set shown in the video below looks rather basic along with the new kryten mask which looks pretty bad in my opinion. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mTKHyo7HdlA The set may not be finished in the video so I'm taking it with a pinch of salt.
