'Red Dwarf' returns for new 'mobisodes'
Red Dwarf is returning for a new animated Christmas special - but only for users of a new international mobile entertainment company.

Pitch will broadcast brand new 'mobisodes' to subscribers, which feature original cast members including Craig Charles and Chris Barrie reprising their roles as Dave Lister and Arnold 'Judas' Rimmer.

Pitch's chief executive Martin Bowley heralded the cult BBC 2 show's move to the mobile market: "This new deal with the team at Red Dwarf... shows the broadcasting world how new content can be created for new mediums. Exceptionally, this activity symbolises the first time work has been created solely for the mobile medium which has never been seen on TV before."

Red Dwarf is unlikely to return to the television after a further series was reportedly rejected by BBC 2.
