Danny John-Jules has been posting some interesting tweets today…
I was wearing my Duane Dibbley teeth today for the first time in over 10 tears. People at the studio who didn’t know the character gagged!
I’m not sure if I’m allowed to tell you why I was being Duane today…. I’ll have to ask
I can’t get Doug, he’s still in the studio. But I will tell you one I get the all clear
i still can’t get hold of the powers that be. I’ll get sued if I say something I shouldn’t.
So, the good news is that Danny is in a studio – with Doug – and they appear to be doing make-up tests! Surely the new series isn’t progressing that quickly? Maybe it’s related to the “multi-media merchandise” we heard about recently? Maybe there’s a Duane Dibbley spin-off show in the pipeline? We just don’t know.
The bad news, of course, is that Duane Dibbley appears to be in the offing again. That gag was perfect in Series V, it was pretty good in Series VI, it was a bit tedious in Can’t Smeg Won’t Smeg and it was a fucking embarrassment in Series VIII. Surely there’s no place for Duane in Series X?
But, of course, we know very little about what – if anything – these plans are. But if titbits like this are starting to dribble through again, we’re in for a bumpy few months…
