Just to remind you all – in my Future Extras Redux article, I said:
This is absolutely true: this morning (I’m on a night-shift), I had a dream. A dream that Rob Grant and Doug Naylor came round to my house, sat down on my sofa, and started writing new Red Dwarf.
It’s difficult to put into words quite how fantastic this actually is. Ever since the start of the Red Dwarf DVD releases, we – and loads of other fans – have been asking… well, where the fuck he was, frankly. When V and VI were released, we all thought we’d missed our chance. And here he is – talking about the genesis of the series. It’s more than I could have ever hoped for. Jesus, if anyone is wondering whether they still want this release, then here’s your answer.
Wow. We’ve had the odd hint on the Webboard over the past few months, but now it’s official – Red Dwarf Remastered has been announced for DVD release as a four disc boxset, with a Region 2 release aiming for October 2007. And as we’re moving from VHS to DVD, I suppose we’d better start calling it by its official name and lose the dash, and the capitalisation when not referring to it as a title. The logo said Re-mastered though, honest…
