Aaaaah, lots of lovely Dwarf news for you. Firstly, news of the next Memorabilia event (from the ever-wonderful Tracey Brennan), held this month on Saturday 23rd (10am – 5pm) and Sunday 24th (11am – 5pm) at the SECC in Glasgow. Adults are £5 and children are just £3.50, making it cheaper than the NEC event. The reason we’re telling you this of course is that Craig Charles and Chris Barrie are appearing there once more (again, Craig is there just for the Saturday). Me and Ian won’t be there, as we’ll be getting PISSED in MANCHESTER, but I heartily recommend you go – last time we wentwas our first time, and it’s bloody fantastic.
Next, Don Warrington (Binks in Holoship, and Philip in Rising Damp) appears in the video for the new So Solid Crew song Broken Silence. I was going to do lots more research on this, but I tend to agree with my esteemed colleague – as he told me on IRC tonight:
<IanIanSymes> So Solid don't deserve research.
<IanIanSymes> They deserve a slap.
Next, a load of news cribbed from alt.tv.red-dwarf. Nicholas Fitzpatrick has noticed that Red Dwarf is showing in Canada on BBC Kids, starting on 12:30 AM Eastern time on September 1st. This is a quite frankly bizzare scheduling decision; Doctor Who sometimes occupies the same slot, but at least that is ostensiably a kids show. Ah well, more Dwarf showing in the world is good. You might also want to have a look at this thread. Not that we’d ever condone something so illegal. Oh no.
Convention news. Starchild (or Mike Leneski if you want to be boring) has informed everyone that Norman Lovett, Hattie Hayridge, and Robert Llewellyn will all be at Dragon*Con 2003, held in Atlanta in the good old USA between August 29th and September 1st. If you can’t make it this year, Dragon*Con are trying to get more Dwarf people for 2004. Excellent, frankly. Looking at their website, I am now crying into my computer that I can’t afford to go. Bah.
Finally, a round-up from the other Dwarf fansites. Groovetown have got something wonderful with their news story on Danny’s RI:SE appearance, and we’re not just talking about the excellent link to us (ta, Rick). If you missed it, or if you want to hear it again and didn’t record it, they’ve got an audio file of it for download. They also have news on Patrick Moore’s latest project. I hope you’re all also checking out Back In The Red as well; since their recent redesign, they have had lots more regular updates. Hooray!
As for us, sorry the promised content update wasn’t up yesterday; but there should be one later today, and another Thursday. Don’t forget to contact us if you have any Dwarf news. We love you all. Mmmwah!
