24 years on from their first outing, and 3 years after their tentative comeback, the boys from the Dwarf are back again, and this time it's for a full series.

Series 10 of the much-loved Sci-fi series Red Dwarf hits our screens on Dave this autumn, and sees the first full-length outing for the hapless space travellers in 13 years. Fans will be relieved to learn that the original crew of Lister (Craig Charles), Rimmer (Chris Barrie), Cat (Danny John-Jules) and Kryten (Robert Llewellyn) are all present and correct, with Doug Naylor at the writing helm once more.

Furthermore, gone is the filmic approach used in 2009's Back to Earth 3-parter and back comes a live studio audience, classic scripting, and reassuringly lo-fi special effects. We've seen episode 1 and can safely say that the fans will not be disappointed. Don't be a smeghead: make sure you tune in.

ShortList caught up with the gang to reminisce about previous outings and to find out their favourite episodes...

Craig Charles: Well, I like Back to Reality, with Duane Dibley of course….



Craig Charles: Marooned was brilliant too...



Robert Llewellyn: Krytie TV I'm afraid, I like that one...

Craig Charles: There was far too much Kryton in Krytie TV…

Robert Llewellyn: That was the downside of it!



Chris Barrie: I quite liked Meltdown, cos it was very un-PC….telling Ghandhi to get down and give me 50 and all that sort of stuff…I don't think we could do that now could we?



Craig Charles: I liked Timeslides, cos Koo Stark got to be my bird…and I got to urinate champagne, as a fountain. I've still got it now actually, urinating into a fishpond.



Chris Barrie: Polymorph was great….



Chris Barrie: Stasis Leak, I remember, that was a good one. It was one of those moments where my head came out of the table and I thought, 'where do I look? What do I say? Who do I say it to?' and [producer] Paul Jackson just says 'don't think about, don't think about it, just say it - hit your cues'...and in the end it was fantastic. Of course, it's that old 80s technology which does seem so crude now, but it was great fun.



Red Dwarf Series 10 begins on Thursday October 4th, 9pm, on Dave
