Full Cast Reunion?

Ah, Groovetown. Sadly, it’s free of the purile humour that blights Ganymede & Titan, but there was an interesting post from a Doug (!) recently – the Dwarf cast are coming to Swindon for a VIII DVD signing. Ha ha, Swindon!

Most interestingly of all, this is a potential reunion of the entire cast: Chris, Craig, Robert, Danny, Norm, Hattie, and Mac. This was of course supposed to have happened at the last Memorabilia, but Craig and Mac couldn’t make it. Hopefully they’ll all make it to Swindon. Ha ha, Swindon!

Some interesting choices of words in that Swindon Advertiser article. Quite apart from the show apparently ending in 1998, Kryten is described as “a boggle-eyed mechanoid”. I mean, I know it’s tedious having to trot out the same character descriptions time and time again, but if you’re going to try something original, at least try and make it mean something. Oh, and here’s a clue: “paranoid android” is from another show. Maybe it’s just how they view him in Swindon. Ha ha, Swindon!

Anyway, It’s taking place on Thursday, 30th March between 4pm and 7pm, at Infinitely Better in the Brunel Centre. In Swindon. Ha ha, Swindon!

Excellently, Yvonne Craig is appearing at the store the week before on March 23rd. As she was the first person I ever TOSSED OFF to (need Batman Series 3 on DVD NOW), I’m half tempted to pop along a week early. I probably won’t inform her of my younger self’s doings, though. I don’t think I could get away with that, not even in Swindon. Ha ha, Swindon!

SWINDON.

  1. “The others are Danny John-Jules, who was Cat, Chloe Annett who played Kochanski, Norman Lovett and Hattie Hayridge, who were both the computer Holly, and Captain Hollister played by Mac McDonald.”

    There was me thinking that Danny was a main cast member who, with the exception of Craig, had appeared in more episodes than anyone else.

    I’m actually surprised Hattie has the good grace to attend these things.

  2. > As she was the first person I ever TOSSED OFF to

    It’s good to share these little nuggets.

  3. Sorry, ‘little nuggets’ sounds like an innuendo. It isn’t. I suppose there’s a wank joke there somewhere.

  4. > “It is the first time that all of the cast members have been together for a signing, anywhere in the world.”

    Is that really true?

  5. > Is that really true?

    Technically. Because either Hattie or Mac are usually absent from these things. But it requires a fairly…lose interpretation of what defines ‘all cast members’. It’s very easy to argue that that list is actually just Craig and Danny.

    Or those two, plus Chris. (He only missed 4 eps.)

    Or those three, plus Robert. (Only missed 12 eps)

    Plus Hattie and/or Norman. (She’s in 19, he’s in 19 – or 20 if you include the voice-only part in BITR2. Interesting, no?)

    And Chlo

  6. No, I think we should get all cast members together.
    Extras, special guests, anyone who has ever been in Red Dwarf.

    Get to it then ;)

  7. > No, I think we should get all cast members together. Extras, special guests, anyone who has ever been in Red Dwarf.

    Even I would get off my arse to attend that ;)

  8. >And Chlo?(14 eps.)

    Who now?

  9. Hey, it was an umlaut when I typed it!

    Mind you, on my display there’s no sympbol at al – just says “Chlo”.

  10. > sympbol at al

    I am a typing moron.

  11. Isn’t it a diaeresis and not an umlaut?

    TOS mentions a full cast reunion at Memorabilia as well… the two eventS are within days of each other, it’ll be a mission to attend both and will Craig attend either?

  12. > if you include the voice-only part in BITR2

    I didn’t realise that. Or if I did I forgot. You learn something every day. Especially about episodes that you couldn’t give two stuffs about and that you’ve refrained from watching for a while. Roll on the combined BITR.

  13. > Mind you, on my display there’s no sympbol at al – just says “Chlo”.

    For me it looks like there’s some sort of Japanese hirigana letter at the end of the word. Weird.

  14. A pause as Ganymede & Titan fails to report on the series VIII DVD menus.

  15. Isn’t it a diaeresis and not an umlaut

    Wendoline is this : right.

    No, I think we should get all cast members together.

    Have you got Baron Samedi’s phone number so we can try and sort out getting Don Henderson, then?

  16. And Hitler while we’re at it, eh?

  17. Hey does anyone have capture facilities on their DVD player and could they put up some before and after remastering images of Tikka to Ride? Nowhere I can find has images of the original CGI for series VII, and I’m curious. Otherwise I’ve just ordered series VII on play.com so I can wait I *suppose*.

    *makes muttley noise*

  18. “A pause as Ganymede & Titan fails to report on the series VIII DVD menus.”

    Speaking of which, why is there a large block of ice in the bunk room with a chimp suspended in it? Bit of artistic license there!

  19. > Speaking of which, why is there a large block of ice in the bunk room with a chimp suspended in it?

    Or possibly a ‘chimp on the toilet’ poster hung on the wall, as seen in Krytie TV…?

  20. Report up tonight, promise! There were technical difficulties*.

    * Me and Ian are lazy.

  21. NEVER TRUST ANY PROMISES FROM JOHN HOARE EVER AGAIN.

  22. >> Speaking of which, why is there a large block of ice in the bunk room with a chimp suspended in it?

    He’s kidding, surely.

    …right?
