R is for Red Dwarf

Although starting out very humbly, the BBC sitcom 'Red Dwarf' has now achieved somewhat of a global cult following. Creators Rob Grant and Doug Naylor have been writing partners, working on Three Of A Kind, Carrott's Lib and Spitting Image. Grant Naylor (as the duo became known) are probably best known for Red Dwarf, which is essentially a traditional British sitcom with a science fiction backdrop, as the comedy is essentially character-driven. Ratings have consistently grown since its launch in 1988, and the show has been on the brink of producing its own feature film for many years. It's not quite there yet, however we wait in hope.
