Christmas Marathon

Fourteen festive days of Dwarf on BBC2!

5 December, 2003

You wait for an episode of Red Dwarf to appear on BBC2, and suddenly 14 of the buggers turn up at once! Yes, as the Beeb announce their Christmas schedule, can report that the repeats currently going out on Sunday nights have done so well for the channel that a bit of a Dwarf-athon will be taking place over the holiday period.

Running from December 21st to January 2nd, showings will pick up where the repeats leave off - at that point half-way through Series IV - and run through to Series VI, finishing up just one episode short of ending that series. The full details are as follows:

So that's the UK - overseas Dwarfishness continues very much as normal... which is to say, we're on all over the place!

UKTV in Australia are currently running Series VI, and will graduate to VII on December 27th. Showings are every Saturday night at 8.30pm with 11.30pm Sunday repeats.

New Zealand's own UKTV channel, meanwhile, is running the show every weekday night at 11.30pm. Series V begins on December 5th, with VI arriving shortly after on the 15th and VII kicking off on the 23rd.

Canada station BBC Kids is also running hot, with daily weekday repeats covering IV, V and VI over the coming month. Weekend showings - at the same time of 12.30am - will be moving from V to VI. And repeats continue across many of the PBS stations in the United States, too.

STOP PRESS: BBC2 have confirmed Out Of Time added to the line-up, completing Series VI and leaving the way open for Series VII - currently intended to go out every Sunday, beginning on January 4th.
