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?

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)
As someone who is Irish the current terminology in the article doesn't make a lot of sense to me. I have always called the whole life of a show, a series & the yearly batch of episodes a season. 22.214.171.124 (talk) 01:17, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
Why is there no mention of many other characters, that often were in multiple episodes, and even multiple series? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 08:59, 22 February 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for the link. I also didn't realise this myself, and came to the article to try and find out what supposed role Ainsley Harriott played in the show, as I scoffed at the rumor he was in it, never having "seen" him in any episodes. I went straight for the "3 Characters and actors" section and didn't find anything there. Rather than trying to read the whole article, I jumped over to Harriott's own Wikipedia entry and found the entry I was looking for immediately under his article's "Television Work" section. I didn't initially notice or click the List of Red Dwarf characters link as I didn't even know what character he played, and assumed (wrongly) it would just hold profiles of the main characters.
If I struggled with that one query, I expect others have and will do too. I don't really know the best way to improve on the article to mitigate this issue... could I propose some sort of anchor section called "Guest Stars" or similar, or expansion on the "Characters and actors" section to incorporate a list of "known" guest actors / actresses? Or rename / make more prominent the link to the characters list / make it obvious it's also a list of all guest actors / actresses too?
And yes, I now realise I could have just done a page "find" and located his name that way on the article page.
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 188.8.131.52 (talk) 13:43, 28 April 2014 (UTC)
