"Red Dwarf" -- Science fiction sitcom based in space. The crew aboard the damaged mining spaceship Red Dwarf are doomed to drift in space for the rest of eternity
Following a catastrophic leak of radiation aboard mining space ship Red Dwarf, technician Dave Lister finds himself as the last living human. Having been held in a form of suspended animation known as stasis at the time of the leak he was shielded from its fatal effects whilst all of his colleagues were turned into piles of dust.
Now, some 3 million years later with background radiation at a safe level, the ship's computer Holly has revived him in readiness for the long journey home. However, Dave's not quite alone: his arch-nemesis and workmate, Rimmer, survives as a Hologram; as does a descendant of Lister's own pet cat, called Cat; and Kryten, an emotionless android.
Red Dwarf follows their adventures across the universe as they attempt to get back to Earth and discover whether Lister really is the last surviving human being.
Season 10 -- The brand new season, a decade later, written and directed by Doug Naylor, begins with the Dwarfers' mining ship still creaking though the wastelands of unchartered deep space. In the new season Lister grapples with the problem of being his own father, gets involved in a love triangle with snack dispensers 23 and 34, while Kryten and Cat become quantum entangled forcing them to do everything in unison. Rimmer and the posse also find themselves marooned in 23 AD where they rescue a famous historical figure with a beard.

Red Dwarf writer Doug Naylor has played down reports of a new series being commissioned, insisting that an 11th series of the sci-fi comedy is yet to be confirmed. Dave channel and the cast and writers have all expressed an interest in returning for series 11. However, Dave has still not given the green light to a new run of episodes, and it is now a year since the show returned to screens. Actor Robert Llewellyn posted a blog at the weekend insisting than "an eleventh series will happen" and that it will be "sometime in 2014". Llewellyn has since removed the post and Naylor played down suggestions that series 11 was definitely happening.

Danny John-Jules has confirmed to Digital Spy that series 11 of Red Dwarf is currently being written, but further details about the show's future remain unclear. Doug Naylor posted on Twitter in October that Dave still hadn't commissioned series 11, but actor John-Jules said that hadn't stopped the writer cracking on with scripts."Doug Naylor is writing as we speak. He told me off for ringing him up the other day and asking about it," said John-Jules. "He said I was interfering with his writing." He also partially explained why there has been so little news about the new series, commenting: "It happens all the time with Red Dwarf. We say something and we get Doug Naylor on the phone saying, 'What the hell did you say that for?' So you can understand why we're quite shy in talking about these things."
