From Amazon.co.uk

Red Dwarf X is a genuine triumph. Following the critically maligned previous run of the show, Red Dwarf: Back To Earth, this is the programme back where it belongs: with six episodes, filmed in front of a studio audience. Written and directed by the show’s co-creator, Doug Naylor, Red Dwarf X reunites Chris Barrie, Craig Charles, Robert Llewellyn and Danny John-Jules. They step back aboard the Red Dwarf ship of the title, and while Red Dwarf X has its bumpier episodes, there are a couple of cracking installments in the series, and a real sense that the show is back on form.

Take the opening episode, Trojan. This not only re-establishes the characters, it also injects plenty of laughs, and has a solid story underpinning it, too. Furthermore, the final episode, The Beginning, may be a little divisive, but there’s still a reason why many Red Dwarf fans list it as one of their favourites.

The disc release brings together all the episodes, as you’d expect, of Red Dwarf X, but there’s a lot more you get for your money besides. The centrepiece is an excellent, comprehensive documentary that’s both feature-length, and goes into great detail on the making of the show. There are umpteen outtakes to enjoy, too, and deleted scenes, with an optional commentary track from Doug Naylor. The documentary, however, is the highlight, and one of the finest extra features for a TV disc release in some time. It’s a fitting tribute to a series that’s proven there’s a lot of life in Red Dwarf yet… --Jon Foster

Product Description

Space battles, quantum entanglement, and love triangles with snack dispensers, are just some of the problems facing the boys as they return on the small rouge one.

Rimmer receives an SOS distress call from an old foe and is suddenly faced with the dilemma of his life. Lister grapples with the problem of being his own father, gets romantically involved with snack dispensers 23 and 34, while Kryten and Cat become quantum entangled forcing them to do everything in unison. The posse also find themselves marooned in 23 AD where they rescue a famous historical figure with a beard.

Packed with over 150 minutes of extras including an exclusive making-of documentary, deleted scenes and a brand-spanking-new collection of ‘Smeg Ups’.

DVD comes with special collector’s reversible sleeve.

4.0 out of 5 stars "Back on Form" 6 Feb 2013
Format:DVD
I have a confession to make. I really did not like Back to Earth at all. I disliked it so much I have only watched it once.
This time however a lot of the problems I had with Back To Earth mainly it being a series of barely connected skits masquerading as a story and it frankly not being funny, are not the case here. I watched the whole 6 eps on Dave and my wife bought me this box set for Christmas.
Trojan starts us off in fine style. There's a distress call and it turns out to be from Rimmer's brother. As Rimmer prepares to cover up his staus to seem more impressive, Lister is just trying to buy an automatic drink stirrer from automatic call service.
Fathers and Suns sees a new ship computer Pree appear at the same time that Lister has been trying to forge a father/son relationship with himself by getting blasted on Gelf hooch and leaving messages for himself. This idea is a very new twist on something that was set up a few series ago. The comedy is genuinely being created out of SF concepts.
Lemons sees accidental time travel dump the crew in the Holy Land just at the same time as there's a man called Jesus. Is this Life of Brian territory? You'll have to watch for yourself.
In Entangled Lister loses badly in a poker game, has he lost both Rimmer and his life?
In Dear Dave, a long lost mail pod offers a letter rom an Ex-girlfriend now long dead, telling him he may be a father.
Rimmer's troubled childhood is revisited in The Beginning and it may hold the clue to defeating a band of simulants.

The episodes split into ensemble pieces or episodes centered on Lister or Rimmer. Cat based episodes have traditionally been found difficult but possibly future series could base something around Kryten. Holly and Kochanski are not present.

5.0 out of 5 stars A welcome back from years of absence 3 Jan 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I would recommend this to any Red Dwarf fan. I had already seen the entire series before I purchased this DVD, but when it comes to Red Dwarf, I don't just want it on my computer/VCR, I actually want to support the program by buying the DVD's, and showing the producers there is a real market for Red Dwarf to be had still.

For anyone who hasn't seen this yet, it's hilarious. The guys' acting has improved over the years and their humor is (if possible) even more witty and in tune than where they left off. If anything both the series and the actors got better with age.
The responses of the live audience are great to hear, and the computer animated bits only add to the fun, instead of distracting from the acting too much.

All in all, five stars!

5.0 out of 5 stars A great series. Equal to their best IMHO. 28 Dec 2013
By Mazchap
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I am a big fan of the whole series. I can easily go and watch the first dvd all over again and still laugh like a drain at some new jokes that appear from nowhere to bushwhack me in the ribs. So it was no surprise I jumped feet first into this most recent series with tingling anticipation. I was not disappointed either. Sure the crew looks a bit older; we all get old and it seemed to fit that as Lister aged so would his companions in some sort of Orwellian symbiosis. It was easy to accept. The jokes crew's pencils were as sharp as ever with rapier speed puns, parodies and one-liners aplenty enough for me. I loved it and highly recommend it to anybody who enjoyed the other series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Back in the Red! 10 Nov 2012
By Paul Mc
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have to admit feeling a little nervous at the return of my all-time favourite TV show (by some distance) following three disappointing series (though to be fair, Seven never had a chance without Rimmer and 'Back to Earth was always going to rile with its brazen self-indulgence). However I am more than delighted to say that the boys are well and truly back in town!

Series 10 effectively follows on from Series 8, with the four crew members - without Holly - back to being deserted in deep space - the rest of the crew having scarpered from 'Only the Good''s corrosive virus. Its never explained as to how they 'got out of that one', but there is a hilarious and self-deprecating tease at the end of Episode 6. And right from the start one can appreciate the true essence of the show. Gone are the extraneous characters from 8 that ruined the sense of isolation and forced companionship that makes Red Dwarf. The boys are alone, isolated, getting on each others nerves, and the results are hilarious!

Indeed, the throwback to earlier 'Dwarf' is imprinted on all the episodes...'Trojan' and 'Entangled' could be straight from Series 6, 'Fathers and Suns' smells of 'Queeg' from Series 2, and 'Dear Dave', with its entirely on-ship setting, is Series 1 through and through.

Despite the similarity to earlier 'Dwarf', Doug has introduced an interesting new writing style to the agenda - Red Dwarf has traditionally been written around a single plotline per week - the guys get into a fix and get out of it - not much happens alongside. However several of the episodes incorporate the use of 'B' and sometimes 'C' subplots - in particular 'Fathers and Suns' and 'Dear Dave'.

5.0 out of 5 stars A triumphant return to form............. 27 Oct 2012
By IOWBOY TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The new series of Red Dwarf is an utterly fantastic return to form!!

For me it is almost, ALMOST, as good as anything they have ever done and I would say that the laughs themselves are amongst the biggest the series has produced.

This time the series has done the right thing and gone back to its roots; Red Dwarf was never really about the locations or the special effects, it was about the marvellous interplay between the motley crew and I am simply over the moon that the writers have concentrated on that once more.

This series has always had that rare thing, true chemistry between its leads and I am pleased to report that it is better than ever.

The makers clearly know how to press all the right buttons and nolstagia plays no small part in the success of this latest outing; the music, the shots of the ship travelling through space, the sets, the costumes and even the credits would not look out of place in the 'prime' episodes some twenty years a go (my God that makes me feel OLD!!!).

The stories are very good, the script is excellent with one joke after another and many of them are genuine belly laughs; a good example that made me laugh out loud came in the episode 'Entangled' (episode four) when during the introduction Lister starts a 'fire' and then tries to put it out, it was simply brilliant and 'classic dwarf' as they say.

Although the cast have aged they have aged pretty well, with The Cat in particular appearing almost like he hasn't aged a day in some scenes (I'm not including Kryten because he cheats!).

The full episode listing is:

1. Tojan
2. Fathers and Suns
3. Lemons
4. Entangled
5. Dear Dave
6. The Beginning

This is the first full series of Red Dwarf since 1999(!
