Friday 10 April will, as we previously reported, see the first installment of Red Dwarf: Back to Earth - digital channel Dave's resurrection of the classic sci-fi series which forms part of its Red Dwarf weekend.

The new outing is written by the show's co-creator Doug Naylor and features Chris Barrie as Rimmer, Craig Charles as Lister, Danny John-Jules as Cat and Robert Llewellyn as Kryten, three of whom have touched down in Coronation Street's Rovers Return, as this preview snap shows:
