Before the update, I just have to bring your attention to this on the Red Dwarf Shop (UK). It’s absolutely beautiful. I tend to moan when I think the merchandise is crap; it’s only fair to enthuse when something lovely is produced. It’s wonderful, and I’ll definitely be buying one. Or seven. Oh, and for any of you watching State Of Play on BBC ONE, did you notice the Producer was Hilary Bevan-Jones, who also produced Red Dwarf V? And Sunbury Pumphouse, the location which doubled for Justice World, was used on a sex education show shown on the Learning Zone on BBC TWO a couple of nights ago. I’m not sure which aspect of that anecdote is more worrying, though. Perhaps it’s the fact that I’d call it an “anecdote”.
Anyway, two quick updates for you today – both Red Dwarf References Lists (Book and TV) are online. Written by the prolific Annette McIntosh, they were last updated in 1996 – we plan to produce addendum documents (especially for the TV list, as it only covers up to Series VI), but that can wait until we have the PIP Addendum up and running. Incidentally, the lists aren’t fully HTMLized – it’s a bloody nightmare of a job, but I’ll try and sort it next week. I’m just left reeling at how comprehensive they are.
I expect the official site will be updated later today – Ian will report on this tomorrow. I’m off to have some employment of time in a profitless and non-practical way. Yay!
