You heard. To quote Robert Llewellyn’s Twitter page:
Yes. Sorry to be tease. Can say we start shooting Jan 20th. Don’t know details yet. Not read script but all the ‘old’ dwarfers are in it.
Don’t know any casting details other than 4 old dwarfers
See below for more…
This is bloody excellent news for one simple reason – we have a date. Not “in the new year”, not “soon”, but an actual calendar date. Obviously, dates can slip, but this is a very positive move.
Is it worth speculating on his emphasis on “‘old’ dwarfers” returning? Probably not, but never mind. Does this mean no Chloe? No Hattie? How would you define an “old” Dwarfer? He probably just means everyone from Series VIII, but you never know.
Of course, this is all rather dependant on the core cast members not being in prison come January 20th. We’ll have more news on that tomorrow, I dare say.
Thanks to philmyer92 for posting this on the ol’ forum.
LEASEHOLDER ADDENDUM: Robert has posted two new twits. Or whatever you call them.
Don’t know any casting details other than 4 old dwarfers. Believe me as soon as I know/ am allowed to say I will. Not even seen script yet.
Don’t worry. I’m sure the producers plan is to make the shows available in the US, and around the world. I sniff a DVD release.
The second one is obvious, but the first one! The four old Dwarfers are undoubtedly Chris, Craig, Danny and Robert. I guess it’s not yet confirmed which Holly will be it, but what does that mean for Chloe? Not good, I don’t think.
