    I suspect they will wanna see if the ratings hold strong through both seasons before announcing more, generally that's how it works for all shows.

    I don't see that being that big an issue since that time has been pretty kind on the Red Dwarf crew and it likely won't take as long since Craig Charles gas reportedly will be leaving Corrination Street indefinitely because he wants to commit his time to Red Dwarf.

    NO. NOT TRUE. RDXII is coming out in 2017.

    By then the cast ages will be as follows -

    Chris Barrie - 57 years old
    Craig Charles - 52 years old
    Danny John-Jules - 56 years old
    Robert Llewellyn - 61 years old

    So "most the cast will" NOT "be in there 60's by then"...:x

    Remember how in the 1980s and early 1990s, the English cricket team was called "Dad's Army" because it had several late-middle-aged, almost elderly, players (notably, grey/white haired Mike Gatting) in its' ranks?

    Do we want that for RD?

    Why would that be an issue?
    It's a comedy about characters who are drifting endlessly through space, not playing competitive sports. I don't see why an age limit must be placed on that, people age and it doesn't in anyway take away anything from the premise of the show.

    I can't see any issues with the cast getting older, after all in real life we all get older and I can imagine Lister and Rimmers' relationship changing through the years.

    In the early years they really disliked each other while in later series they are a little more friendly, which would happen when your stuck with someone for a long time that you initially dislike. Later on in life, after spending so much time together they could get to the point where they can hardly speak a word to each other again so going through full circle.

    Age of the characters has no bearing on how RD can still keep on going. So keep it coming. ;-)

    Getting Norman back likely would be a headache for all involved, particularly when he decides to quit because he doesn't wanna show up at rehearsals and refuses take a pay cut for it....then go on a rant slandering all the show's staff yet still try to cash in on the Red Dwarf name in his next stand-up comedy tour. As much as his a fan favourite, I really can't imagine the kind of behind the scenes problems having him back would create.

    If Holly was to return, even as a one-off instance for an episode, I'd much prefer it to be Hattie.

    It would be ncie if they did an episode to deal with the character once and for all, with the character written out of the show or brought back for good, to give the character closure.

    My previous idea for an episode where Norman and Hattie both play a corrupt Holly that threatens to destroy Red Dwarf would be a great send off I think! :lol:

    i never understood why holly was so important. apart from to quickly explain something in the plot or deliver the occasional one liner that another character could have easily delivered what was the point? the show works just the same without a holly.

    Norman's burned all his bridges, gone back and burnt the ashes. I can't see GNP wanting to work with him.
