BBC launches Red Dwarf: Beat The Geek interactive DVD


There must be plenty of Red Dwarf fans around – it was the longest running, highest-rated show on BBC Two. And if you’re pining for its return – well, that’s unlikely, but you can console yourself with Red Dwarf: Beat the Geek, an interactive DVD with new footage recorded just for the game.

The idea of the game is in the name – you have the chance to test your Red Dwarf geek knowledge against another geek. Or if you’re more of a casual viewer, you get to test your general knowledge. It’s all hosted by Holly (played by both Norman Lovett and Hattie Hayridge) and is played across eight levels aboard Red Dwarf. Each level takes you to a different part of the ship for a different batch of questions, visiting major locations from the series including Starbug, the Bunk Room, Science Lab, Prison and Officers’ Quarters.

Probably a game you’ll be all over on Christmas morning or you’ll want to run a mile from. If you’re one of the former, it’s out on 23rd October, priced at £19.99.
