Oh dear. It’s been a while since we had any new articles. Luckily, we can rectify this today, with an in-depth look at the Series I Deleted Scenes– including transcripts, and our opinions on them. Expect one on Series II’s to show up in the next few days.
In Brittas news, Play have got the Brittas DVD listed, and it includes one feature not mentioned elsewhere – a Trailer for Series 2. Presumably, (and I must stress that this is merely an educated guess), this means the DVD of Series 2, which is great news, as it means there are definite plans for further releases. On the negative side, trailers for DVDs are this: shit. There’s no point to them. However, the fact that this extra has been added recently, plus the fact that the series is on two discs, brings up the possibility that there might be more extras forthcoming on this release. After all, we’re talking about good quality 1991 videotape here, not manky footage that needs a ridiculously high bitrate to keep the quality up. Anyway, we can but hope. (It’s always possible that this trailer is one broadcast by the BBC for the second series; it’s a pity things aren’t labelled a bit more clearly.)
In Howard Goodall related news, NOTBBC’s forums have got a report from Brig Bother on last night’s recording of episode 2 of QI – a panel game hosted by Stephen Fry. Howard Goodall was one of the guests, and the show sounds marvellous.
Finally, some actual Dwarf related news – friend of the webside Karl Eisenhauer has spotted a little nugget of interest in this jumble of information. So you don’t have to go through the garbage, it states:
Blue Beck is a leading developer, exhibiting on the UK State of Play Pavilion. A superb series of Java games, covering several different genres, comprise a catalogue now being eagerly investigated by a range of clients. In addition the company is now developing a number of original J2ME games all related to prime licences. Baywatch, Red Dwarf plus others which cannot be mentioned yet for legal reasons.
It’s extremely vague, but a Red Dwarf game is what many fans have been wanting for ages – could this be the start of something good? And more to the point, where does Karl find all this? He is magic.
Tomorrow’s update will include yet another new section added to G&T, despite the fact that we’ve hardly got anywhere with the existing sections yet. Hooray!
