Danny John-Jules says Red Dwarf is waiting to get everyone signed up.

With the four leads having their own work commitments, including Dannys one man show Ive Got To Be Me, theres a bit of jostling going on to bring everyone on board.

But fans of the sci-fi show neednt worry as its on track to return once the cast is locked in.

Speaking to Metro.co.uk at the TV Choice Awards on Monday night, he said of the new series: Its gonna be funny.

Were just waiting for the ink and the stamps to go down.

Im doing my one-man show so Im not really concentrating on Red Dwarf. Im not in Cat mode because I can do that like a light switch.



Right now its about trying to get everybody signed up.

He added that no one has seen a script or any potential ideas for new episodes yet, and asked if there is anything he would like to see happen to his character, Danny is fine just to go with the flow.

The actor told us: I never ask anybody to write anything. I never have in 31 years. Ive never asked for more lines.

When my character was the smallest I never asked for a bigger part. Why tamper with success?

So what does he think is the key to Red Dwarfs ongoing success?

Danny, 59, insisted: The key is talent. Showbiz. Thats what were here for, so every single person should be on that road, otherwise why are we here?

The actors are all dedicated to their characters and thats why it works. Theres not any magic.

You dont see us all hanging out at the pub every week. Why do you not see photos of all the Red Dwarf cast together? Weve been in the show 31 years. Because were all individuals.

Hopefully those individuals can get their acts together to bring us another hilarious series.
