  1. Fantastic. He’s got some Quality Street left over still and wants to share them evenly by 4.

    Norman’s Twitter = No one phoned today. :-|

  2. Since he writes comedy for a living, I’m expecting a higher standard of prank phone call.

  4. I reckon he was ringing about Red Dwarf.

  5. They still make that?

    Im saying nothing for fear Norman will phone me (again…)

    I… wait, what?

  8. Boy, Doug is LATE with his Happy New Years this year.

    I… wait, what?

    Feel free to correct me on the details, but I recall that VS posted something about Norman on here, which he read. He then Googled VS, found his band’s Myspace page, and got the phone number for one of his bandmates. He then left an answerphone message complaining about whatever it was that VS said.

  10. Random Person on Twitter – “Come on now Danny ! When are yous doin another Red Dwarf Sir ???”

    Danny John’Jules in reply – “I’ve just got off the phone to Doug Naylor and the wait could soon be over.”

  11. [parodyofpessimisticdwarffan]Why did he have to say “could soon be over”? That is so not definate!! [/parodyofpessimisticdwarffan]

    Thats more or less it. He saw i’d said that he seemed to be bitter (what with the statement about his book and all) and he phoned my drummer, James, thinking it was me. Apparently they talked for quite a while, or so James keeps reminding me anyway.

  13. He didn’t phone me.

  14. He sent me a text, but it was blank.

    I bloody love it.

  16. He wrote my name in the snow.

    No prizes for guessing what he used to dot the i.

  17. His multi-purpose round, bald head? A reclaimed confiscated football? A great big dollop of spite?

  18. I, for one, hope things are smoothed over and Norman ends up in the (inevitable) new series. I know we rip on him for being an arsehole sometimes, but everybody involved in the show seems to accept that he is a grumpy, moaning git by nature so I wonder if there is any ill feeling, or if it’s just “Norm being Norm”. I’d like to see him back.

  19. He did make a good Holly. If they bring Holly back I hope Hattie gets the role this time though.

    I honestly don’t see what he’s done that warrants being chosen over Hattie, who’s been a model of professionalism and has never said a word about being overlooked when Norman was brought back for VII, or about being practically airbrushed from history in the Red Dwarf Night documentary, or about not getting the call for Back to Earth.

    Whereas if any of those things had happened to Norman (well, the latter one did, but still) we’d never have heard the end of it. He burned his bridges when he said things like “I will never do Red Dwarf again as I cannot work with these people”, or flat out called Doug (by implication) a liar. Even if he’s had a change of heart himself, why should anyone involved with RD give him the time of day? What has he done to deserve it?

    Anyway, let’s not turn this into another Norman thread. Happy times, people! I’ve a feeling from all this we may be very close to some Actual News…

  21. >A great big dollop of spite?

    Carl was the closest without going over.

  22. I hope Hattie returns. I once had a dream in which Neil Hamburger played Holly. It sort of worked.

  23. Not shooting till November?? Hmmmm, that’ll be because they’re shooting the Movie in the spring, right…? :P

    A V/VI kind of vibe to the series would be most welcome, yes. Audience recordings – yes. A little more gag-based than BtE – yes. Hattie onboard – yes.

    A V/VI kind of vibe to the series would be most welcome, yes.

    I’m not sure how easy this will be considering Rob Grant was a part of why V and VI was the way it was. BUt yes, it would be nice if it were possible.

    Audience recordings – yes

    Again, obviously yes. WOuld be nice to see an episode filmed as it’s something a lot of people around my age missed out on.

    A little more gag-based than BtE – yes

    I think this is obviously going to be the case. BTE wouldn’t be as poignant as it was with more gags. It’s a strange one is BTE, I want to write something about it.

    Hattie onboard – yes.

    I think it’s time for Hattie to return. Oh yes.
