Rarities! New Rob & Doug footage! Wrinkles! Desktop Backgrounds! More to come!
So, finally the last ‘Coming Soon’ section on the Downloads page has sprung to life, offering you goodies old and new. Here’s what we’re launching with:
Wrinkles: This is a collection of the various downloads been made available through various articles, which is handy for all 0.8 of you that fancy downloading an episode every now and then.
Rob & Doug on Bite Back: Ho yuss. Never let it be said that delving head first into Ian Symes’ dusty and foul smelling archives doesn’t reap rewards. This little beauty is taken from an 1993 edition of the BBC show Bite Back. The item in question is about sci-fi at the BBC, and spends a decent amount of time talking about Red Dwarf (or Red Der-warf, as people seem to insist on calling it) and, more importantly, talking to Rob & Doug. It’s a lovely piece and it’s fascinating to see a dub actually IN ACTION. Also, there’s some lovely stuff about Doctor Who, with all this hindsight we have.
So, enjoy that. In the next few days I’ll be sticking on the rest of the new rarities stuff we’ve collected, which is basically every last second of the junctions from Red Dwarf Night in 1998, including ‘Red Dwarf Night Continues After these Messages…’ bumpers, trailers for other BBC shows, ‘Skutter & 2’ idents and Patrick Stewart’s fevered ramblings between shows. I can almost hear you pop with oily excitement from here.
