I first learned of plans to bring Red Dwarf back to the small screen for a few episodes and specials last October. The BBC has finally announced when it will happen – Easter weekend (April 11/12), nearly 10 years after the last episode aired. There will be a two-part story, “Red Dwarf: Back to Earth” which will then be followed by a “no holds barred” special – no sets, special effects or autocue (teleprompters to us Americans), and then a “making of” special. So if they go “Back To Earth”, will it be full of trash? Or did Wall*E steal that idea? No word on if it will see an outlet in the U.S. Update: I missed the fact that it will NOT air on the BBC itself, but on the UKTV digital channel Dave.
