Rimmer talks about being washed along by millions of gallons of water at "60 knots per hour." Knots are a measure of speed of 1 nautical mile per hour, so he should have said "60 knots." See more »

A real treat after an absence of 10 years
11 April 2009 | by DVD_ConnoisseurSee all my reviews

It's been 10 years since "Red Dwarf" last graced the small screen and the new 3 part special is a real treat.

I had my doubts about the "Red Dwarf" return, imagining a shoestring budget and heart-hearted script but "Back to Earth" is the real deal. Doug Naylor both writes and directs this episode and this is clearly a project that the whole team were passionate to bring it from the germ of an idea to reality.

Bearing a resemblance to the later seasons of "Dwarf", we are presented with a witty script, rather excellent sets, decent effects and, of course, a totally unique cast.

A delight and a genuine Easter treat. Recommended.
