What is Red Dwarf about?
For nearly 30 years, the sci-fi classic Red Dwarf has been delighting audiences around the world. So what is it about? All but one of the crew, Dave Lister, (who was in suspended animation) are killed by an onboard radiation leak aboard the mining ship Red Dwarf. Three million years later, when the radiation levels have returned to normal, the ship’s computer Holly reanimates the lone crew member who discovers that he is all alone on the giant mining ship, except for a humanoid cat who evolved from Lister’s pregnant cat, a hologram of a former roommate and a service-bot Kryten.
So what happens in Season 12?
Speaking to THEGAYUK.com the series creator, Doug Naylor said that although lots of information had already leaked about the 12th series, however the very last episode is his favourite. The last episode; called Skipper, has been much talked about as it sees the return of the original ships computer Holly as played by Norman Lovett and Arnold Rimmer appears to be time travelling to the setting of the first series.
The series has six episodes in it and explores what would happen if evil was curable.
Will there be a 13th series?
Naylor revealed to THEGAYUK that “everyone” wants to do another series- saying, “Everyone wants to do more and by everyone, I don’t mean just me and the cast”.
