List of Red Dwarf episodes

Red Dwarf X is the tenth series of the British science fiction sitcom Red Dwarf, was broadcast on UK television channel Dave between 4 October and 8 November 2012.[1] There are six episodes and it is the first full series of Red Dwarf since 1999.


In June 2010, Craig Charles, Chris Barrie and Hattie Hayridge reported plans to produce further series of Red Dwarf.[2][3] although a subsequent article on the official Red Dwarf website emphasised that nothing had yet been confirmed.[4] In January 2011, Robert Llewellyn confirmed on his website that a new series would be filmed in late 2011 and broadcast in 2012 on the digital channel Dave,[5] although the channel's owners UKTV initially refused to comment, suggesting that a new series had not been officially greenlit.[6] On 10 April 2011, a six-episode Red Dwarf "Series X" to be broadcast on Dave in autumn 2012 was officially announced. Doug Naylor confirmed the plans both on Twitter and at the Dimension Jump XVI convention,[7][8] and Dave issued the announcement through its website.[9][10]

Filming dates for the new series were announced on 11 November 2011, along with confirmation that the series would again be shot at Shepperton Studios in front of an audience.[11] Principal filming began on 16 December 2011 and ended on 27 January 2012, and the cast and crew subsequently returned for six days filming pick-ups.[12] On 4 May 2012 Howard Goodall, who had composed music for Red Dwarf from its beginning until series VII, was announced as composer of the score for Red Dwarf X.[13] On 19 June 2012, the post-production process was completed and all 6 episodes were signed off ready for their broadcast in the following autumn.[14]
