Grant Naylor Productions have confirmed that the infamous movie poster, which Ganymede & Titan became the first Red Dwarf fan site to report on in February, is indeed genuine. They also tell us that Doug Naylor is currently on a recce in Australia, and that the snippet of the plot that we get in the poster is not the full story. Hmm. On Wednesday April 9th and Friday April 11th, the cast commentaries for the Series III and IV DVDs were recorded, in plenty of time for release in November this year and February 2004 respectively. The good news is that Robert Llewellyn and Hattie Hayridge were indeed present, which relieves an awful lot of irrational fears about the latter’s inclusion. Also on the official site this week is an interesting interviewwith Paul Alexander, who is in fact seven years old.
As for this site, we apologise for the lack of updates recently. This is due to the University of Teesside’s reluctance to allow John to live in the Learning Resource Centre over Easter. However, we’ve both been working hard, and we’ll be uploading an awful lot of new content on Wednesday, including book reviews and a guide to the deleted scenes.
In the meantime, you may be interested to hear that Ganymede & Titan’s biggest fan Andrew Ellard, who we are told is also in charge of the official site, Associate Producer of the DVDs and script editor on the movie, has written an episode of the daytime soap Doctors, which is been shown tomorrow (Tuesday) on BBC ONE at 2:05pm. Finally, on a sad note, Matt Dryzmala’s popular fan site Back in the Red has been closed down. The good news is that Matt is currently working two new sites, including the Rimmer-dedicated Git Central. So good luck to Matt, and hurry up with it, you Mancunian git.
