After the shambles of the #vindalunar promotion earlier, here is some genuinely exciting news for you; Dave have released the official synopsis for Series X. We also now have it confirmed that the series will go out at the perfect time of 9pm, so make a note in your diaries now. There’s not much we can elaborate on without spoiling you, but there’s plenty of things there for you to take in and speculate on. Obvious as an overview it is a little spoilery, so take this as a warning that it may contain things you’d rather avoid:
Red Dwarf X *UK Premiere*
Thursday, 9pm (from Thursday 4th October)
Space battles, quantum entanglement, and love triangles with snack dispensers, are just some of problems facing the boys from the Dwarf as they return in a brand new series. Red Dwarf X, the 10th series of the legendary sci-fi sitcom, airs exclusively on Dave and Dave HD this October.
Red Dwarf X returns with 6 x 30 min stand alone episodes, recorded in front of a studio audience and reunites the much loved original cast of Chris Barrie (Rimmer), Craig Charles (Lister), Danny John-Jules (Cat) and Robert Llewellyn (Kryten).
The brand new series, written and directed by Doug Naylor, begins with the Dwarfer’s mining ship still creaking though the wastelands of unchartered deep space, but the posse soon stumble upon the mysteriously abandoned SS Trojan. As they inspect the ship Rimmer receives an SOS distress call from an old foe and is suddenly faced with the dilemma of his life.
Throughout the six part series Lister grapples with the problem of being his own father, gets involved in a love triangle with snack dispensers 23 and 34, while Kryten and Cat become quantum entangled forcing them to do everything in unison. The posse also find themselves marooned in 23 AD where they rescue a famous historical figure with a beard.
The series final episode finds the boys surrounded by a Simulant War Cruiser and its fleet of attack ships. Armed with only two forks and a pencil sharpener, the Dwarfers begin to wonder whether this is the beginning of the end. Only one man can save them. Unfortunately that man is Arnold J Rimmer.
