    That's funny, because chris Barrie rang me up the other day and said its gonna be filmed early next year and it's just 1 feature length episode to wrap things up for good.

    That's funny, I was chatting to Craig Charles the other day he called in for a bit.
    And he told me a few very positive things they will be filming a Christmas special
    For December 2015, then after that in 2019, they will be filming 15 hour long episodes
    back to back to save on time. Doug also told him that he was hoping for a March 2024 release
    For the final series xi. So pretty good news.

    I've just been reading a tweet by Richard Naylor which said "New script sent off to the Beeb" " Now we wait" well as its Doug and Richards new production company called 'Three Feet Productions' it's safe to say it is nothing to do with Red Dwarf.
    Looks like they must have put time into another project instead of Red Dwarf, got to hope it is a million times better than that Bill Onion dross.

    One could wonder the same about loads of other people who work in the media - in front of, and behind the camera. Chloe Annett's Dad is a big TV Director and used to direct many dramas back in the day. I am sure he had a big influence on kick starting her acting career by giving her contacts. But I have to ask - who cares how or why he got his job?

    From the interviews I have seen and read, Richard sounds like he knows his stuff - and good for him for trying it out.

    Not necessarily. Any time we get anything like this, I hear a little voice inside reminding me that the Movie got a lot further along than this and still came to nothing.

    Yeah, but the movie was a whole different affair really, I don't think a comparison can be levelled between the two. The movie had many spanners thrown into the works. Like the Americans wanting to use US actors and fake funders who promised lots of money but didn't have any money. etc. etc.

    A new series on the other hand we know the main actors would like to do it, as I think does Doug and Dave. It is just things need thrashing out and schedules set. Of course that is just my opinion as I have no insider knowledge.

    I would be extremely surprised if the series doesn't happen. And I've not seen, read or heard any reason to believe it might not happen. It shall be going to be happening; it will be was an event that could will have been happening while we were all thinking it would never happen.

    Patience, young grass smokers.

  15. I think we should dump the studio audience. It's an anachronism and starting to seriously impede the creative process - one article states that we could have had a lot more location shooting in Red Dwarf X if there hadn't been a studio audience.

    I disagree, I think Red Dwarf works very well with a studio audience and whilst it may be a coincidence, the series that are generally seen as the weaker are those shot without. Besides, I don't think more location work would have particularly improved or benefitted Series X.

    Series 7 didn't have a live audience and the show suffered for it. Series 9/BTE didn't have one either, or even a laugh track and I found it to be on the most part horrible. The show needs an audience there, not only for viewers, but also for the cast who admit themselves that they much prefer a live audience and they did miss it in 7 and 9 and were so happy to have them back for 10.

    i think the audience can hurt the show also sometimes since the cast tend to get hyped and over act to get a bigger laugh but at the same time i don't believe something like back to earth would have been improved by having an audience since thats like saying we don't know whats funny unless we hear someone else laugh

    and don't get me wrong the cast do find a new energy around the audience but if something isn't funny then its not funny no matter how much the cast try and make it work with an audience and i think that was the misconception of BTE which was the cast thinking well it was obviously funny so it must have been us not trying hard enough

    while i think fans still remain confused why they didn't find back to earth as funny as previous series so the lack of audience automatically gets the blame

    I love the fact that they've mostly filmed live in front of a studio audience. I think it just makes for better energy and chemistry between the performers. Performing live before a laughing, clapping audience gives you a high that is difficult to duplicate when you're just performing for a camera and crew.

    Not too mention how awesome an experience it is for the audience members who are lucky enough to attend. :-)
