    Great little doco on "the boys". I had no idea that Charles and Barrie didn't get on - at least in the early days! Not that it would affect future viewing (unlike say - knowing how much Bruce Willis and Cybill Shepphard hated each other on Moonlighting)...

    My only addendum would be - I heard that Norman wanted more money, and that's why he left after S2 - not because he moved away from where they were filming... But I get why that would be presented differently.

    I wonder if a re-cast movie is any more likely now that the original actors really are well and truly beyond being the stars for a big budget movie... I agree that casting would be HUGELY important, and you couldn't just pick "popular" actors... but with the right choices, no reason they couldn't make a successful reboot.

    be careful what you wish for, A LOT of re boots deserve to get the boot, because smeg heads from the studio higher ups stick their fingers in the cake batter to the point that there isn't enough batter to make a decent cake, just maybe half of a half of a half of a tiny cup cake, then the entire re make gets sent directly to the bargain dvd bin if lucky, if not it goes to the cable networks where it gets chopped up for Saturday afternoon release or on the 4am spot as filler.

    RED DWARF RETURNS IN 2020 FOR ITS FIRST-EVER FEATURE-LENGTH SPECIAL!

    The wait is over. We're delighted to announce that Red Dwarf will return to Dave next year for its first ever feature-length special. Craig Charles, Chris Barrie, Danny John-Jules and Robert Llewellyn are back as Lister, Rimmer, The Cat and Kryten, in an all-new story written and directed by Doug Naylor and produced by Baby Cow Productions.

    "I'm really excited to get back on board with the boys from the Dwarf," says Craig. "I can't wait to discuss Robert's prostate problems, Chris Barrie's hip replacement and have a proper look at Danny's new dentures whilst they marvel at the agelessness of the Charles physique. I will surely require the services of a chiropractor after dragging these doddering misfits through what promises to be our most epic adventure yet. Dave Lister, the human race's last hope in a hostile universe. God help us. And may the Dwarf be with you."

    "I'm absolutely thrilled to have the opportunity of making more Red Dwarf," adds Doug. "UKTV have been a never-ending source of support and encouragement since we first started working together ten years ago. Can't wait to start shooting a format that I don't think has ever been done before. Smoke me a kipper, we're back and not just for breakfast."

    The special will be filmed on location and at Pinewood Studios in front of a live studio audience, and is produced by Richard Naylor. Christine Langan is executive producer for Baby Cow.

    And as if that wasn't enough, we've got something else exciting to announce, too. To celebrate the return of the small rouge one to our screens, UKTV has also commissioned a series of retrospectives - three 60-minute documentaries which will offer fans the definitive story of the show from day one right up to now. These retrospectives, produced by North One, will include a wealth of rare and unbroadcast material, as well as new interviews with cast and crew.

    "Our relationship with Red Dwarf has been incredibly fruitful and satisfying so far," says UKTV's Head of Scripted Pete Thornton, "and it's been a real pleasure to see the cast and crew fully committed and seemingly enjoying themselves more than ever in the run up to this latest production. We've been talking to Doug and the team about how to take Red Dwarf forward and the special clearly offers us an exciting next step. It's going to be a proper event in the history of the series."

    "I am a huge, life-long fan of Red Dwarf and I still re-watch it and re-read the books regularly to this day," adds Luke Hales, Dave's channel director. "So it goes without saying that it gives me huge pleasure to be a part of the team this time around. I am as excited about this one as a viewer as I am in my role as channel director on Dave. The episodes we've made for the channel so far have been brilliant, and what a way to welcome it back too, with a feature-length special and three-part look back at the show's history. We at the Dave team literally cannot wait to bring this huge treat to our viewers."

    Happy to hear of the confirmation of Red Dwarf's return! A little surprised that its only for a one-off special on this occassion. Not really sure what to make of that TBH and unsure what it means for the future but still happy to have the Boys from the Dwarf back again!

    Thanks for sharing!

    i've just been re-watching Season 5, and I have to say I think it's the pinnacle for the show.

    There's not a clanger amongst them, and I could honestly sit down and re-watch any of them all over again right now.

    As for the above "movie-length" special announcement - it's presumably the confirmation of the end of any attempt to put out any more full seasons. Perhaps it will in fact serve as a final finale, once and for all... with a sneaky reboot hint at the end.

    This wiki suggests that the 2004/5 cinematic movie of Red Dwarf - that did NOT go ahead - would have been a complete reboot, AND a complete re-invention of the back story to the show. Thank F this didn't come about! I absolutely want to see a reboot, with a fresh cast, but I don't want to see it leave the original storyline. There's so much in the original novels that wasn't touched on - or at least - there's so much there that could be told in ways not yet seen - there's no need to just toss it aside.

    It's not at all the length of the new story that's got me wondering about it being the end -- it's the specials. There's no particular milestone anniversary for the show associated with 2020, so why make three hours of retrospective documentaries? To me, that smells like they plan on ending it, and here's some specials for you to wax nostalgic over at the same time.
