Yeah I saw that this had been leaked a few weeks back. More Dwarf is always welcome, but in the same breath the last time we had a "special" we got Back to Earth which was, lets face it, a bit shite.

Looks like filming has officially kicked off for the Red Dwarf special:



Looking forward to it. There have been hints that this could be a "finalé" for the show which would be a shame, but it has got to end at some point I suppose!

A full on feature length final episode could be a great way to go out.
The time between series is now getting beyond silly and the actors can't go on forever and the show just won't work with anyone else so if it's good (doesn't need to be amazing just a good ending will be enough) I'll be happy with that.

As you say, everything must end eventually.

Yeah and to be fair we've had 30 years of Dwarf (with some gaps and variations in quality admittedly!) so it's hard to be too disappointed that it cannot go on forever! :lol:

I'd love something that managed to meet the quality of the early Grant Naylor stuff, but even if it is just on a par with the recent Dave series I will still be happy.

That said I'm not really sure how you end something like Dwarf, short of killing everyone off!

What makes you think there'll be any Earth? And even if there is look what it's done to a household pet in three million years!

Can you imagine what has humankind evolved into? To them, Lister'll be like the slime that first crawled out the oceans!

I agree.
If humanity has managed to survive that long it'll be so far advanced as to be unrecognisable. Maybe they'll be something like the Vorlons from B5 or we could have nuked ourselves back into the stone age and the planet is just recovering.
I don't think that'll be how it ends as it's not really what the series is about. Yeah, they say they're heading back but if all he really wanted was that he could have just put himself back in stasis and boom, back at earth at the start of episode 1 all those years ago.
