    Another ten year wait for a new three part special?

    Maybe we’ll get some positive news soon. I hope GNP and Dave (and the BBC?) plan to ride the momentum of BTE…

    Im definatley on the side of ‘more red dwarf please!’… and I loved BTE.

    But, I really think that there’s not much chance of more. And I dont know why.

    I certainly think if there’s any more, it’s gotta happen soon. before the momentum, the interest inspired in broadcasters by BTE, slows.

    i agree if there is to be anymore it has to happen soon

    I wonder if Doug has anything in mind for a follow-up. Possibly ‘the search for Kochanski’ as others have said.

    To be honest, I’d be happy if BTE was the last TV Dwarf. It’s such a fitting end, especially after a decade of lamenting ‘Only The Good’.

    I would love to see more. The whole spirit of Back to Earth seemed to be that this shouldn’t be the end.

    I don’t think Dave will commit until DVD sales come in but I feel the decision needs to be made sooner rather than later.

    I hope Doug doesn’t try for a movie again because as we’ve seen, he can achieve a lot on a small budget. One that would likely be increased if a series was commissioned. Trying to do another film would be too much of a gamble after failing for so many years and seems a stupid gamble when he can obviously achieve the style through TV episodes. He may not have been able to with the resources ten years ago, but now he can.

    I think we need a final series. The search for Kotchanski would be good but i’d also like Red Dwarf to end back on earth so Lister gets his ultimate happy ending.

    Agreed that Dough needs to forget about the film. BtE can serve as one anyway, and probably will in its feature length presumably extended form. New series please to wrap things up.

    I have Dave on in the background today, and I’m really noticing the absence of BtE trailers. 8(

    It’s reassuring that Doug and the cast all seem to be open to doing more. Before the rumours of BtE last year I was resigned to the fact the RD was long dead, but now I just want more. NOW.
    I will be terribly disappointed if this is it.

    This post makes me hungry…

    If Doug writes better in this form he could write another 2 three-part stories to make up a Series IX. I would be happy with that.

    I’d love a new series… I’d be happy with six, single half hour eps. No multi parter stuff, just six solid, funny stories, and god-willing, no cliffhanger.

    Oh of course a 6 half hour series would be good but I want Doug to write to his strengths, if his strengths are stories like BTE I would rather he written more in that style.

    Agreed. If it was a choice between 2 or 3 BTE-style episodes (in terms of length, not all the homaging and self-referencing) or 6 to 8 episodes of series 8 comedy, I’d choose BTE-style episodes anyday.

    BTE was the first multi-parter Dwarf that truly worked in my opinion.

    I’ll agree that the film should just be completely forgotten about. I consider BtE to be that film, for better or worse, and if there should be any more Red Dwarf (which I sincerely hope there will be), it should be a full 6 or so episode series. Preferably each episode being 30 minutes long.

    At the moment I don’t really mind what flavour of new Dwarf we get (although obvious a series is a million times more likely at the moment) but I still really love the idea of rebooting Dwarf in a film.

    But at the moment I just want more.
