Grant Naylor

Red Dwarf
  • Red Dwarf

  • The human race began as slime and ended as slime. His name was Dave Lister.

    After celebrating his birthday on a Monopoly board pub-crawl round London, he wakes up three million years from Earth, marooned in the wrong plane of the wrong dimension of the wrong reality with a crippling hangover and down to his last two cigarettes . . .

    Together with a dead man, a senile computer, a deranged sanitation mechanoid with an overactive guilt chip and the best-dressed entity in all six known universes, the last remaining member of the human race begins his epic journey home.

    Join the Red Dwarf's trepid band of space zeroes - Lister, Rimmer, Kryten, Holly and the Cat - as they travel through frontal-lobe knotting realities where none dare venture but the bravest of the brave, the boldest of the bold, the feeblest of the feeble-minded.

    Bonus material includes the first draft of the TV pilot script and the beer mat on which the original idea was first scribbled.
