Why we love it

Dave Lister is the last human being in the universe. A lowly technician on the mining ship Red Dwarf, he wakes up one day to find that the rest of the crew have been killed by a radiation leak. He has been in stasis for three million years.

He is doomed to drift in space for the rest of eternity with only two companions: the hologram of his former crew-mate, Rimmer, and a creature called Cat who has evolved from a pet he smuggled on board.

From series III onwards, they were joined by a mechanoid servant called Kryten, and from series VII, by the attractive human female, Kochanski. The scenario changed in the most recent series (VIII), in which the boys (and girl) from the Dwarf find the rest of the crew have been restored to life.
