RED DWARF EPISODES

RED DWARF originated as a sketch for BBC Radio 4's Son of Cliché, but owed much to such Sci-Fi screen vehicles as DARK STAR (1973), QUARK (1978) and HITCHHIKERS' GUIDE TO THE GALAXY (1981). This then is the tale of inter-galactic, curry-eating slob Dave Lister, played by Craig Charles, the last human alive. Dave is a twenty-third century Liverpudlian with a penchant for derivatives of the expletive Smeg. He is the sole survivor of a radiation leak aboard the mining vessel Red Dwarf. Brought out of a three-million year long stasis by ship's computer Holly (first played by Norman Lovett and then by Hattie Hayridge), Lister was given company in the form of a hologram of his ex-boss, the pompous Arnold Rimmer played by Chris Barrie. Also aboard was a cat played by Danny John-Jules, a narcissistic, Little Richard-type dude who had evolved in the ships hold from Lister's pet feline, and was a humanoid except for fangs and six nipples! By series 3, Lister is joined by Kryten the subservient android played by David Ross/Robert Llewellyn. This then made up the motley crew of the Red Dwarf.

RED DWARF first appeared on BBC2 in 1988 and has seen a total of 8 series with some 48 x 30 minute episodes screened to date. Created by Rob Grant and Doug Naylor rumour has it that there will be a 9th series. Despite at least a couple of attempts, the show has never succeeded in the US but then they do have the original - STAR TREK, now don't they!
