Red Dwarf is back, and you can be there for filming

Would you like to board Red Dwarf? You could be in the audience as the new series of the classic BBC sci-fi sitcom blasts off.

Would you like to board Red Dwarf? Now's your chance, as the new series of the classic BBC sci-fi sitcom blasts off -- and you could be in the audience.

The boys from the Dwarf are back on Dave in series 10, written by the show's creator Doug Naylor. They're filming six episodes in front of a studio audience and tickets are available today.

Episodes will be recorded on 16 and 23 December, and 7, 13, 20, and 27 January 2012. Those are all Fridays, and they're being filmed at the legendary Shepperton Studios.

You'll be able to see Craig Charles as space-slob Lister the last human, Danny John-Jules as style icon Cat, and Chris Barrie as the holographic Rimmer, refusing to let being dead get in the way of being a total gimboid. And of course there's CNET UK columnist and all-round good egg Robert Llewelyn as the helpful android Kryten.

If you're wondering why it's series 10 when the last series was series eight, it's because series nine was fictional, as explained in the recent Back to Earth mini-series. Or something.

Like Back to Earth, Red Dwarf X will be shown on Dave.

To get tickets, all you need to do is sign up to Lost in TV, a site that books audiences for TV shows. The Red Dwarf page goes live at 2pm, so go to red alert in readiness, and good luck!
