Red Dwarf, the hilariously odd British sci-fi series that ended ten years ago, looks to be getting new life. Robert Llewellyn, who played the robotic Kryten, says there are four new special episodes in the works for 2009.
“It’s very new news to me – I really only fully heard the details yesterday… We’re doing four new shows with the original cast. Two of them are going to be, like, proper episodes of Red Dwarf. One of them is so exciting I’ve been asked not to say anything about that because other people will steal the idea – and it is a great idea, quite challenging for us as performers. And the other one is a kind of behind-the-scenes-y… the truth. There’s been so many rumours and gossip about Red Dwarf, about whether there’s going to be a movie and whether we all get on, all those things… The downside for me, which is just dawning on me now, is I’ve got to do the ‘rubber’ thing again, which I haven’t done for ten years.”
