    The rumo(u)rs from earlier this year were true. Red Dwarf X is due to be filmed in December/January.

    I'm planning a family visit to the UK at that time and one of the dates is the day I was planning to return, so I can delay by a day if I'm lucky enough to score tickets (I'm on the waiting list) for that date (1/7).

    I'm not all that excited, to be honest. I think this is one of those shows that had it's day and time, and now that has passed. This just seems... unnecessary.

    As long it is better than the the three part story they aired on Dave a few years ago. That one was bad.

    I agree, and how can they possibly have a further series after that?

    I never saw it, and I apparently didn't miss anything.

    Red Dwarf was one of the two BBC shows that I wouldn't miss "back in the day". Absolutely Fabulous was the other. Thanks for the 'heads up'.

    I've watched every Red Dwarf episode and own a couple of vhs and dvd sets. It really declined in quality in the second half of its run and the last special was pretty bad. I don't have much hope for this new series but I'll watch it.

    I'm certainly in the same camp as the "not holding out too much hope" crowd. I was a HUGE fan way back when, but also agree that the recent special was a big disappointment.

    If I manage to score tickets, I'll be one of the first to be able to decide whether it's worth watching, but I'll be looking in, wearing my "Smoke Me A Kipper" T-shirt!

    So out of the loop that I didn't know about any recent specials. Hope I can find it online.

    It was a three-episode special (for lack of a better term for it - it's on DVD and Blu-Ray) from 2009.

    Thanks. It would be sweet if it was added to Amazon Prime. That is how I caught up on Torchwood.

    What do you mean by "score tickets?" Is it a stage play?

    The show is filmed before a live studio audience.

    Not all seasons, if I recall correctly. Some (later seasons) were laugh-track only.

    EDIT: Just saw the linked article... didn't realize you were referencing this new filming.

    I actually liked the series throughout its run.

    Oh, I thought this was a sci-fi show. I didn't know it was a sci-fi sitcom.
