Ooh, Richard Naylor (son of God) has tweeted a photo of the Red Dwarf X edit suite, which includes a nice shot of a big monitor…
It gives us a further glimpse of the bunk room set, looking resplendent with its monitors and lovely details on the wall. You can also make out another Cat costume, which I’m sure you’ll agree looks far better than the one in the first publicity shot. He appears to be holding a couple of bottles of milk (or possibly Smirnoff Ice), which I don’t recall from any of the episodes I saw recorded. This suggests that this scene is either from episode 3 or 6, or that I’m an idiot. Place your bets now.
There’s not much else to say about this photo, other than that Doug really needs to improve his posture, so what the fuck else is going on? Well, Richard has also said that they’ve been putting together trailers for the series – “a bunch of 10, 20, 30 second ones and also one 50 second one”. Lovely. It’s things like this that remind you that we’re edging ever closer to broadcast. Elsewhere, behind-the-scenes director/editor has been tweeting too, hinting that some bits of the documentary are nearing completion and possibly that the DVD will be a 12 certificate. This is all much more positive than Doug’s tweet from last week, which simply read “Aggggggghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh hhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!”.
In other news, the logo for the next Dimension Jump convention has been released – and it’s bloody brilliant. A simple idea, beautifully executed, and I can’t wait to have it on a t-shirt. The other two logos featured are great too (I especially like the coat of arms), but as squash enthusiast Andrew Ellard said earlier, “show goes back to classic Dwarf basics, DJ logo does the same.” DJXVII is currently pencilled in for April 2013, and we’ll be there, obviously.
