‘Red Dwarf’ Series 11 is being written now, says star

Danny John-Jules has revealed that Series XI of Red Dwarf is currently being written, despite no official announcement of its commission.

Series X launched on Dave in October 2012, but UKTV told CultBox last summer that “nothing has been confirmed at this stage” regarding a new series.

John-Jules, who plays Cat in the sitcom, told Digital Spy recently: “[Co-creator] Doug Naylor is writing as we speak. He told me off for ringing him up the other day and asking about it. He said I was interfering with his writing.”

Explained the delay, he added: “It happens all the time with Red Dwarf. We say something and we get Doug Naylor on the phone saying, ‘What the hell did you say that for?’ So you can understand why we’re quite shy in talking about these things.”

The actor is currently starring in the third series of Death in Paradise on Tuesday nights on BBC One.
