    Happy you're still smiling Mrs Y, up there in rural Washington. I hope the family Y are also all full of good cheer. :-D

    Nice to see you back on the forum, Paul. I hope you're going to stick around. We've lost too many good posters over the years.

    A fine family needs a fine home! I hope you remember to play and work in equal measure. I seem to remember voting for a very attractive wreath last I was here, around yuletide. How did that go?

    Too busy really to return properly. I won't be making another assault on the 'top posters' chart to reclaim the number one spot, which I see you currently hold.;-) I'll be dropping in as news of the new series arises, and hopefully to discuss episodes as they're aired. It's nice to see so many familiar posters still around, and I hope you're well.

    :-D The wreath won the contest. My sweet beanies donated their prize to raise money for the local school auction! Their owl is on display in our homeschool classroom.

    What have you been up to?

    Excellent!:-) Well done! I remember when I clicked on the link being relieved it was the best entry, and I could vote with a sound conscience.
    Working, drawing, reading, posting in a couple of other online hangouts. Training for a 20 mile charity walk through London in aid of breast cancer care, with my sister who had breast cancer a couple of years back.
    Welcome Stephen! :-) I wouldn't say I'm back as such, just following news of the new series. I hope you're well.

    There is actually Derek. Lister, Rimmer, Kryten and Cat will be returning in two more series of Red Dwarf, Dave has announced. Red Dwarf XI and Red Dwarf XII begin production this autumn and are due to air on the channel in 2016 and 2017. The last time fans were treated to fresh episodes of the cult sci-fi comedy was in 2012 with the six-part Red Dwarf X, a follow-up to 2009's Red Dwarf: Back to Earth, Dave’s first foray into scripted comedy commissions. Back to Earth saw more than 2.6 million viewers tuning in to catch up with the four hapless space explorers as they returned to the small screen for the first time since the BBC series ended a decade earlier. Red Dwarf first landed in 1988 on BBC2. It's eighth and final series on the BBC brought in more than eight million viewers, while the show has sold over 11.5 million DVD and videos worldwide, been broadcast in 25 countries and won International Emmy and British Comedy Awards. Co-Produced by Grant Naylor Productions and Baby Cow Productions, Red Dwarf XI and XII are written and directed by co-creator Doug Naylor. The series once more reunites Chris Barrie as Rimmer, Craig Charles as Lister, Danny John-Jules as Cat and Robert Llewellyn as Kryten. Doug Naylor said: “Everyone at UKTV have been so supportive of Red Dwarf from the start of their involvement with the show... [they] originally asked for more shows back in 2012 but frustratingly it’s taken until now to get our ducks in a row and all the boys available at the same time. Now they are, we’re all absolutely delighted.” Simon Lupton, UKTV's commissioning editor, added: “Red Dwarf has superb talent attached; writing, directing and acting plus an expert team who absolutely know what they are doing when it comes to delivering a stand-out piece of television. It has a universal appeal that manages to touch long-standing fans and recruit new ones. It is fantastic to be collaborating with them again on the next phase of the Red Dwarf adventure.” In order to film the two series, Craig Charles will leave Coronation Street after 10 years playing cabbie Lloyd Mullaney. "I feel I owe it to my colleagues on Red Dwarf to join them in filming the new series and finding out what is in store for Lister and the others," he said in a statement from ITV confirming his departure.
