The sci-fi comedy returns for a sixth series. If fans have been impatient for new adventures just consider the plight of the crew of the Red Dwarf - they've been in suspended animation for years since the last series, their starship has been stolen and now they must tangle with the deadly Psirens. Among further surprises - romance is in the air for Lister, after about three million years and five series without even a decent peck on the cheek.
