Red Dwarf: Back to Earth was a three-part miniseries that ran as the ninth season of UK science-fiction comedy show Red Dwarf. It was created by Doug Naylor (rather than 'Grant Naylor', as his former comedy partner, Rob Grant, was not involved) for UK satellite channel Dave.
After discovering that they inhabit an 'invalid dimension', Dave Lister (Craig Charles), Arnold Rimmer (Chris Barrie), Cat (Danny John-Jules) and Kryten (Robert Llewellyn) home in on the nearest 'valid dimension', which turns out to be ours. They discover that their lives are just part of a TV series, Red Dwarf, and - worse - that they are to die at the end of the series!
- Back to Earth spun out of Red Dwarf, and is regarded by some as its ninth season.
