BIGGER. BETTER. SMEGGIER.
“Have you been drinking the giggle water?”
Every new series of Red Dwarf has been a reboot of sorts. From the location shooting of II expanding on the grey-scale claustrophobia of the ship-set original run, to the addition of a new main character and the gender-swap of another in III. Since co-creator Rob Grant ejected himself from an airlock after 1993’s series VI leaving Doug Naylor solely in charge at the helm, the boys from the Dwarf have been testing the water with all manner of reinventions, morphing from audience-less sci-fi drama (VII) to broad laugh-prominent farce (VIII).
