Three years on from the sprawling (but largely underwhelming) Back to Earth mini-series, the boys from the Dwarf go back to basics for this tenth series. It’s a smart move, for this is a lively re-creation of the show as we most fondly remember it. It’s all here: the studio audience, the bunkroom sparring and the strategies employed by the crew to make their lonely lives bearable.
For the incompetent Rimmer, this means attempting to pass the astronavigation exam and become a Space Corps high-flyer. We’ve seen him try and fail before, but this time the stakes are higher thanks to an SOS call from an old foe.
Writer Doug Naylor gets plenty of laughs from Rimmer’s sense of thwarted ambition while also taking witty pot shots at some classic sci-fi conventions. Watch out for a nice gag that involves Lister faking a talent for touch telepathy, plus the sight of the guys in snug, elasticated Star Trek-style jumpsuits.
The crew stumbles upon the mysteriously abandoned SS Trojan, and while the group inspects the ship, Rimmer receives a distress call from his brother. Starring Craig Charles, Danny John-Jules, Chris Barrie and Robert Llewellyn.
