For longtime fans of the series, Back to Earth is a wonderful, if occasionally muddied, send-off or a fresh new beginning for the crew of the Red Dwarf.
Somewhat predictably the Dwarfers aren't quite as funny as they were in their early'90s heyday, but even so, their return after ten years is considerably better than the last two series of the show.
Sadly co-creator Doug Naylor went a shade too post-modern in the execution, and having the characters discover the show - not to mention Coronation Street and Craig Charles - feels too silly and not in keeping with Dwarf history...
Dwarf fans will find plenty to keep them occupied here.
Red Dwarf: Back to Earth was feverishly anticipated, making its utter smegging ineptitude all the more dismaying.
