Is James Corden the new Craig Ferguson?

First it was Pink is the new Black. Then, everyone said that Orange is the New Black and Kale is the new Spinach. Now, it’s quite possible that James Corden is the new Craig Ferguson! With Ferguson leaving The Late Late Show at years end, I think that Benedict Cumberbatch’s name is the only one […]

The boys from the ‘Small Rouge One’ are back for series XI!

While there hasn’t been confirmation of this as of yet on reddwarf.co.uk, it’s worth putting this out there because news is traveling fast around the Internets…and everything you read on the Internets is true, right? Almost three years to the day since Dave’s announcement that there was to be a Red Dwarf X in our […]

BBC revives Comedy Playhouse with ‘Over to Bill’

This Spring will see two brilliant returns to the telly. Not so coincidentally, brilliance will collide when Doug Naylor’s Over to Bill launches as one of three pilots scheduled for the revival of the BBC’s Comedy Playhouse strand. Comedy Playhouse began in 1961 and ran until 1975 as an anthology series which served as the […]

PBS to get ‘Vicious’ in 2014

Vicious’, a.k.a. Vicious Old Queens, starring Sir Ian McKellen and Sir Derek Jacobi, will make its way to PBS in the States beginning Summer 2014. The British comedy, which aired on ITV this past Spring in the UK, tells the story of a constantly bickering couple who have lived together in a small Covent Garden […]

The news has been widely expected for the past eleven months, following […]

The Red Dwarf ship – a piece of it, anyway – could be yours!

Make a contribution to Tellyspotting’s sister station KERA, and you’ll be automatically entered into a drawing for your very own piece of Red Dwarf history: an autographed piece of the actual Red Dwarf ship (8″ x 3″), signed by Doug Naylor, the creator/writer of Red Dwarf.

Now empty, BBC Television Centre bits up for auction

As we reported in a recent Tellyspotting report, the classic BBC Television Centre is like the parrot in a Monty Python sketch. It has ceased to be. It’s an ex-Television Centre. Bereft of life, the Centre has gone to meet the choir invisible. Like Elvis, production staff and crew have left the building. Now that […]

Series 4000 mechanoid, Kryten 2X4B – 523P, sends message from Red Dwarf

Monday evening’s preview screening, which leads up to this coming Saturdays U.S. broadcast premiere of Red Dwarf X on KERA TV in Dallas/Fort Worth, is receiving worldwide attention of epic proportion. Putting it all together would not have been possible without the herculean efforts of a number of individuals who, unfortunately, happened to be about […]

The science behind Red Dwarf

Happy 25th Anniversary – Red Dwarf!

15 February is definitely a day to celebrate if you love British telly. Twenty-five years ago on that fateful day in 1988, the creation from the mind palace of Rob Grant and Doug Naylor which introduced the world to the remaining on-board inhabitants of a mining spaceship owned and operated by the Jupiter Mining Corporation, […]
