I wonder what they were originally shot on and just how good that can look once upscaled.

Doug just confirmed to me on Twitter they are using the originals, and not the new digital fx versions.

I also note that they changed some of the music on the netflix versions

I've always bought Red Dwarf on DVD including the newer series as well so my OCD is satisfied as its all in one matching format.

To be honest, I'm quite skeptical as to how this upscaled version will look.

Sounds like they're putting significant effort into upscaling it, but I've yet to see any SD material that looks decent when up-rezzed. Still, I don't have any of my Red Dwarf DVDs anymore and I'm sure this will look better than they did, plus the price is super cheap for how much is on there.

Also, the extra features were always absolutely excellent.

Upres is all good and well but it's still 576p at the end of the day, you can only polish it so much. Will still be interested in what it looks like. And this set only includes the BBC shows none of the new ones?

Yes it's just the BBC era as all the Dave series are already available on Blu Ray, so I suppose many people that would want those on Blu Ray will already have them, and they didn't want to increase the price of the set to add them.

With it being upscaled and colour graded, and with more modern encoding I've decided to go for it despite having all the original DVD releases. In particular I'm hoping series 6 looks better in this release, especially as the DVD version (but not the ones on Netflix) has black bars top and bottom on some episodes in what would have been the overscan area.

What was wrong with them? Not asking as someone who purchased this months ago and haven’t seen it honestly!

A TV movie is going into production for broadcast next year. Also a series of retrospective documentaries being made alongside.

The bitter cynic of me can't help feeling that Dave is reducing the budget and only allowing for what is effectively half a season.

Unless I'm wrong and a seasons budget is being direct on a 90 minute special!

The documentaries intrigue me as they boast of showing unbroadcast material. The DVD features have been so comprehensive over the years, it's there anything left we haven't seen?

Don't get wrong, I'm still looking forward to it!

Yeh can't imagine they're going to produce something new. I'm guessing just people talking might be new. Always enjoy a bit of Dwarf though, the Dave stuff isn't a patch on its best stuff back in the day, but it's still watchable enough and its nice they all want to do it after all these years.

I remember Rob was around for the AA advert so possibly there might be more of him and Doug in the documentaries than we've had before. But yes I'll be surprised if there are many clips that haven't already surfaced in the comprehensive extras we've had before.

Great to know we'll have more Red Dwarf, I've really liked the Dave episodes and there are some real gems in the last three series.

I saw the TV spot last night and thought it was a new Sci fi show until I heard the voices.
