Back To Earth isn't the tenth series[edit]

"Red Dwarf is a British comedy franchise which primarily comprises nine series (plus a tenth smaller series named Back To Earth"

Back To Earth was a mini series, the tenth series was made by Dave (partly owned by the BBC) and being broadcast now — Preceding unsigned comment added by 80.0.191.4 (talk) 19:30, 4 October 2012 (UTC)

"Red Dwarf is a British comedy franchise which primarily comprises eight series (plus a ninth smaller series named Back To Earth)" isn't accurate either, though. Badblokebob (talk) 22:45, 4 October 2012 (UTC)

As the amount of episodes in a series isn't a constant and we haven't established any length in the lead, saying "smaller series" makes no sense. "Red Dwarf is a British comedy franchise which primarily comprises ten series." Full stop, end of story, no need to make it more complicated than it is. ~~ Peteb16 (talk) 22:53, 4 October 2012 (UTC)

British versus American Terminology[edit]

The show lasted 10 Series, what Americans call seasons. The whole life of a show, Americans call a series. But since the Brits call each season a series, when what do the Brits call the entire multi-year library of a show? Do they have a term? or do they just call it a show? Marc S., Dania Florida 206.192.35.125 (talk) 19:49, 23 July 2013 (UTC)

There is no british equivilant to what americans call a series. Duncan3dc (talk) 11:09, 26 July 2013 (UTC)
"Show" or "programme", confusingly most people just use "series". Яehevkor 13:28, 26 July 2013 (UTC)

Other Characters[edit]

Why is there no mention of many other characters, that often were in multiple episodes, and even multiple series? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 60.242.247.177 (talk) 08:59, 22 February 2014 (UTC)

There is. It's called List of Red Dwarf characters. Pasicles (talk) 00:56, 4 March 2014 (UTC)

Probable error in introduction.[edit]

"a radio version produced for BBC Radio 7"

In fact I'm pretty sure that these were the same episodes that were aired on the World Service in the mid/late 1990's... — Preceding unsigned comment added by 78.145.99.190 (talk) 13:43, 28 April 2014 (UTC)
