We now know that after an introduction lasting 5 minutes and 39 seconds, we’ll have 7 minutes 49 seconds on Camille, then 8 minutes 18 seconds on DNA, followed by a mere 6 minutes 41 seconds about Justice, before 10 minutes and 7 seconds on White Hole, then a massive 16 minutes and 23 seconds about Dimension Jump before finishing with a whopping 18 minutes and 12 seconds of Meltdown.
Overall, that’s 73 minutes and 13 seconds, which is pretty gosh-darn amazing. Also, top workaholic Andrew Ellard gets a full ‘Director’ credit, as opposed to his ‘Associate Producer’ status on Launching Red Dwarf (on the Series I DVD). Helen Norman, however, reprises her role as Producer. It’s perhaps unsuprising that Dimension Jump gets a large proportion of the screen-time – it’s a hugely popular episode, with a phenomenally popular alter ego. However, Meltdown also gets a huge amount of screen-time, despite being rather more unpopular (which, incidentally, is utterly unfair – it’s a great episode).
This is yet another pants-wetting taster, which makes us long for February to hurry up and arrive. But then again, November will be quite good as well.
