    Cult comedy Red Dwarf is returning to TV, 21 years after its initial launch.
    The show has been resurrected by digital channel Dave for a two-part Easter weekend special, which sees the cast finally return to Earth.
    Written and directed by Red Dwarf co-creator Doug Naylor, the new show reunites the line-up, including Coronation Street's Craig Charles.
    The hit show, which ran for eight series on BBC Two between 1988 and 1999, won an International Emmy award.
    'No holds barred'
    Set three million years into the future, the show followed the exploits of Dave Lister, slovenly crew member of the mining ship Red Dwarf - and the last man in the universe.
    He was joined in his weekly attempts to make it back to Earth by a cast of oddballs including human hologram Arnold Rimmer, mechanoid servant Kryten and Cat - a preening half-man, half-animal who evolved from the ship's cat.
    At its peak, Red Dwarf pulled in around eight million viewers and was broadcast in more than 25 countries.
    It has sold more than seven million DVDs and videos.
    The new two-part series Red Dwarf: Back to Earth will be followed by a "no holds barred" episode without sets, special effects or autocue.
    The weekend will climax with Red Dwarf: the Making of Back to Earth, a behind-the-scenes special from the new episodes.


    THANK YOU DAVE !
    I hope

    It's back?! It's finally back? I know I hated the last two seasons, but I've been waiting years for a resolution to the story and there's the off-chance this special might actually be good.

    And there was me thinking that UK Gold 2 (I'm not calling it by that ridiculous name) was just for Top Gear repeats.

    They're on between 10 - 12 April.

    If anything, it would be a past version of Earth (for them), since the series started a few hundred years in the future.

    Well for them it would be
    But they did go back to a past earth in the episode "Backwards" wiat it was forwards
    Damn it none liner time travel is kinda confusing with my current state of mind

    (The spell check didnt work on my spelling of the word future)

    True.
    I liked the part where Krytens machine thing read "bit crap" haha.
    My only gripe was the CGI.
    I would be quite happy if they just stuck with human operated puppets etc. The Skutters for example.

    Aye, they should definitely stick to puppets and stuff. Yeah, they looked silly back in the old episodes, but that was the point. Looking silly while using CGI is just naff.

    I thought the episode was alright. Not great, but alright.
