Red Dwarf even more dwarfish

Old clips glued together to make mobisodes

For only three quid a shot over-excited Red Dwarf fans can see 25-second cartoons of their favourite bits, newly animated by Pitch Entertainment, and packaged with three ring tones comprised of quotes from the series.

Quite why the original video needs to be replaced with brightly-coloured animation isn't clear, it could be to ensure better rendering on a mobile-phone screen, though the cynical might conclude it's to give the impression that the mobisodes are genuinely new content.

Certainly that's how The Telegraph covered the launch, with a particularly gushing tribute to the owner of Pitch Entertainment, Martin Bowley.

If you desperately want to see animated versions of the cast speaking well-worn lines then you can sign up for only three quid a week, or just watch the real thing on Dave. ®
