Promised Landing

The Red Dwarf Special arrives next week - watch the first five minutes now!

3 April, 2020

It's less than a week until Red Dwarf: The Promised Land airs on Dave. No, we can't believe it's finally come around, either. But if you're so anxious to see some of the special that you just can't wait, we've got good news for you: as the @davechannel social media team have spent the last week running a special code-cracking game. And hot off the press this morning, they've released the reward for its successful completion: the first five minutes of the special.

Promised Landing

Seriously, we're not kidding - five whole minutes, the show's entire opening sequence. But take a deep breath before you hit play, because we promise you you've never seen Red Dwarf that looks, feels and sounds like this before. And it's only the beginning - you won't believe the thrills and twists and turns over the course of the entire feature-length show:

And if that doesn't whet your appetite enough, how about a taster of some of the early reviews that have started to appear?

"COMEDY OF THE WEEK: ... a treat... Doug Naylor captures the magic of Dwarf's heyday with the trademark bants and insults, in a caper with an epic feel to it, some decent effects and even a touch of pathos" - Radio Times
"With every plot strand elegantly based on aspects that already exist within personalities and relationships, The Promised Land seems a joy for each actor, and a real rediscovery. There's a sense of exhilaration and return to form in every scene." 9/10 - Starburst Magazine
"... enjoyable fun, and the chemistry between [the cast] is as good as ever" 4/5 - TV Times
"... should delight fans..." 4/5 - Heat Magazine
"Running like a well-oiled machine... great visual effects work and an exciting score... a seasonal holiday special which like most Easter eggs is a bit of a treat" 8/10 - Sci-Fi Bulletin

Red Dwarf: The Promised Land is on Dave at 9pm on Thursday 9th April, and UKTV Play shortly afterwards!
