A two-parter, Red Dwarf: Back to Earth, is set to premiere on Friday 10 April at 9pm on Dave. Written and directed by Doug Naylor, it reunites RD cast members Chris Barrie, Craig Charles, Danny John-Jules and Robert Llewellyn (nothing has yet been confirmed regarding Norman Lovett or Hattie Haybridge). Shooting starts on Monday 16 February.

The two episodes will be joined by a couple of one-offs: Red Dwarf: Unplugged (“A no holds barred episode that delivers the cast as they’ve never been seen before – no sets, no effects… and no autocue!) and Red Dwarf: The Making of Back to Earth.

Dave promises it’ll have regular updates for RD fans on its website,, with a new piece of production gossip revealed every Wednesday.

    Norman Lovett won’t be in it – he left an arsey message on his MySpace page about it last week. Presumably no Hattie either. Also, Robert Llewellyn has said on his Twitter that there’ll be no Kochanski. Linkies:

    This is all rather exciting!
