There was also a press conference with Doug and Richard Naylor at the UKTVLIVE Launch day. The pair revealed that the production of the new series starts next month!!
Interestingly both Danny John-Jules (Cat) and Robert Llewellyn (Kryten) said they were unaware of all this when asked last night. We wonder if Chris Barrie (Rimmer) and Craig Charles (Lister) were. We guess they are all informed by now.
All in all, quite a good day for Red Dwarf fans.
