“It is very unfair of Grant Naylor to keep all you Red Dwarf fans hanging on for so many years in the hope that there will be a film. To be realistic about it which is always my chosen path, I do not think there will ever be one. I have spoken with many of you over the years and we all seem to agree that Red Dwarf should have had an ending of some kind whether it be a TV special or a final series. I cannot go into any personal details or the buggers will sue my ass off as they say in some parts of the world.
It is a shame but you do have enough episodes to watch, imagine if there had only been 2 series like Fawlty Towers, mind you they would have been the funniest.
So please don’t ask me about the Red Dwarf movie any more. Pass it on.”
Don’t hold back, Norm. Say how you feel.
Personally speaking, I still think that whilst Doug Naylor is still out there searching for funding, the movie is more likely to happen than not happen. He’s not an idiot, and if he didn’t think there was still a good chance, he would have given up by now. I’m intrigued to know why Norman Lovett thinks he knows more than Doug in this matter – and I fail to see what’s unfair about Doug still trying to make a Dwarf film and not giving up on it, when he clearly still thinks there’s a good chance of it happening.
Oh, and Series III-VI are just as funny as the first two series. Ya big eejit. Just because you’re not in them…
Having said all of that – Red Dwarf IX? A special, or series of specials? I can’t deny that – movie permitting – …well, yes please.
