    Rejoice. Two new series. and a possible live tour?? Very exciting.

    So any theories as to where the series COULD go from here? Holly return? Kochanski return?

    What pleases me, which may seem harsh, is they appear to have better staffing for the production team. Kerry Waddle is friggin awesome and she is old school Red Dwarf from the golden era.

    Hopefully Baby Cow can iron out some of the behind the scenes chaos of series X!

    If there is Kochanski I hope it is just a cameo right at the end. I really don't want her as a permanent member.

    We'd better get some skutters this time. I'm also wondering if Holly is going to make a reappearance. If so, I hope it's Norman.

    As mentioned on the other thread I'm super excited about this. And the addition of there being not one but two series commissioned makes me very happy indeed. The possible Live show sounds great too. My only major hopes for the new series' are that they're as awesome as series X was. :-D

    ps: For anyone who may not have seen it (the other thread suggests some haven't) here's Seb's article.

    I'm excited because the scripts are being written well in advance, unlike X where there was considerably less time to revise and tinker around with them before they went into production. Considering how big of a step X was up from VII and VIII even with the chaotic production, I'm sure we'll get an even better series this time around.

    Plus hopefully we'll get to see the two scripts that couldn't be produced due to lack of a location shoot.

    My hopes are that having more time and the experience from last time that doug writes scripts that he knows he can do this time and that have enough time to do better storys with more thought put in aswell as enough time to think about what jokes do not work

    also i hope having 2 series doug won't force several character subplots in each episode since there is plenty of time to give characters their due

    Apparently, there will be an episode where everybody becomes Kryten.
    As long as there are no episodes where everybody becomes Taiwan Tony...

    You didn't have to for RDX.

    So.. two series. Makes a lot of sense to film two back-to-back. There is space for, shall we say, a nice cliff hanger between the two??? :-D

    Oh and yes, did anyone hear it? On the DJ announcement, after Doug Naylor said TWO series, I'm sure he also said, "each of three episodes", but I couldn't be sure as the audience were making loads of noise for some reason. And what with my hearing being a bit dodgy these days...

    eh simulant ;-)

    I'd love a Cliffhanger and a recurring theme throughout the series like they had with season 6.

    Oh and please bring back Starbug and employ some proper model peeps... the Rolf Harris guy was great with the sets but his attempts at flybys were appalling.

    I would like no more stuff about the characters past which adds nothing...
    I would like no more racism or misogyny...
    I would like no more broad slapstick...
