Smegheads R Us: The Return of Red Dwarf
TV Channel ‘Dave’ is typically famous for its testosterone-packed schedule of repeats including Top Gear, Mock The Week and Never Mind The Buzzcocks. In a shock departure from form, Dave has decided to finally commission, gasp, a show of it’s own – not an original show mind, but the eagerly anticipated return of Red Dwarf.
Red Dwarf: Back to Earth is a new three part mini-series, to be followed by an ‘Unplugged’ show where, as Craig Charles puts it, the original actors try to improvise, or rather try to remember, classic scenes. Memory loss eh? That’ll be the after effects of the crack habit rearing their ugly head then.
The plot has been shrouded in secrecy, and the only gossip to have leaked is that Lister’s ex-girlfriend/mum Kristine Kochanski is dead, Holly has malfunctioned as a result of a running tap, and Rimmer comes face to face with his arch-nemesis: a resurrected science officer known as Katerina.
Odds of be-spectacled buck-tooth geek Dwayne Dibley making an appearance? Slim to none.
