A trio of release updates from TOS this week. Not all that exciting on the face of it but what the fuck do you want, an announcement that Doug Naylor is going to come over to your house and show you his plans for the next series?
To pass the time until that momentous day, when we all gather in the streets to celebrate the ninth coming, you can do a lot worse than waste your time with these things:
- Wiffle Lever to… er, Paperback: Remember that quite good book all about a man visiting a variety of conventions? Well, now it’s now smaller, cheaper and flimsier! Of course the interest here lies in the fact that he visited DJ XIII and then did a big write about it in his book. I’m even vaguely featured.
- The stinking colonies thrown some scraps from our table: Following months of whining (I imagine) the North Americans will be taking time out from their ‘ho downs’, ‘proms’ and ‘burgers’ to enjoy the release of the Back to Earth DVD and Blu-ray editions on October 6th. Consider the late releases adequate punishment for hogging the Director’s Cut of Watchmen, you greedy shit-rags.
- Finally, the UK are best at having Red Dwarf on Blu-ray.: First spotted by the more observant types in our forum, it is now confirmed that we’ll be seeing the glorious (I imagine once again) HD version on Back to Earth Blu-ray (and boy am I sick of typing that) on August 31st, which is much earlier than I originally expected. Nice that it’s coming out ASAP to avoid any ugly accusations of double dipping, though. There’ll be no extra content over the DVD version, just glorious resolution versions of the main feature and, surprisingly, a few of the extras including the documentaries. If, like me, Dwarf in 16:9 was enough to blow your tiny little mind, this is going to be too much to bear.
That’s yer lot, then. Now, get back to your filthy corner of the Forum and if you’re lucky we might shit out another DwarfCast at some point over the next few days. However, if you’re REALLY lucky, we might not.
