New clip! Unlock with ‘LOOSE’ (Women)

Craig Charles appeared on the brilliant Loose Women earlier, and they played a previously-unseen clip from The Beginning. Our friends over at Gayspacko Poop have handily filmed it on their phones and uploaded it – look out for a guest appearance by Alex Newsome’s reflected hands. Embed and analysis below the line.

This seemingly fits in to the whole ‘only one man can save them’ spiel we saw in the episode synopses. It’s a funny clip, although I find Kryten’s extended towel-folding miming to be a little unnecessary. But then, it’s easy to over-analyse these things – remember, these are just short, isolated clips from a far wider context. They’ve been selected for whatever reason to be shown ahead of transmission, but there’s nothing significant about them that they should have to stand up to so much more analysis that they would have done if they were any other 30 second chunk of a 30 minute episode.

Still, the Cat punchline makes it all worthwhile. We’ll try and keep our eyes peeled for any more promotional appearances that may feature little snippets like this, but do help us out by posting in article comments, the forum and on Twitter. THANKS.

  1. wasnt expecting this today so all good! although with 8 series behind them you would think after all this time the crew would sound more comfortable in the cockpit (storywise). maybe its just me

    still, its a great clip! and now we know why kryten does the crazy moves from the trailer

  2. look out for a guest appearance by Alex Newsome’s reflected hands

    The IMDB entry is being written as we speak.

  3. lol i love the fishing gag :) i guess that was one of Craigs own gags before doug wrote it into red dwarf (as doug admitted in many commentaries) – or craig just saw ann oppertunity to use a RD gag

  4. Why isn’t Ed Bye directing? Doug should have focused just on the script. Some of the camera angles so far look at bit odd.

    Don’t like Chris’ delivery of “Why me?” a bit wierd.

  5. I think you’ll just find that’s the way Alex was holding his camera…with his feet!!

  6. I take it that’s Blue Midget? I really hope we see Starbug leaving Red Dwarf like the old days!

  7. I think you’ll just find that’s the way Alex was holding his camera…with his feet!!

    Actually it doesn’t come across that well in the video, but the camera is rocking at the start to make it look like the ship is swerving.

  8. This could easily have come from VIII. I’m not saying that’s necessarily a bad thing…

  9. i have to say dougs directing may be abit of a problem with RDX

    only issue i have with this clip is dannys line could have been shorter and still got the point across

    while i think chris did a very subtle rimmer here, reminded me abit of series 6

  10. I like the way Rimmer’s eyes move left to right as he delivers his line. A nice touch of Rimmer trying to figure out how he can worm his way out of this one.

  11. I see absolutely nothing wrong with Doug’s directing of the incredibly brief clips that I’ve seen (all of them).

  12. A new clip of Kryten shitting on a spoon was just on Dave at 20.15. Watch it on +1!

    Doug’s directing is something that’s stuck with me as a big plus point of the new series, although obviously my main attention wasn’t usually on the monitors…

  14. No way, are they really gonna show Kryten shitting on a spoon? This is a joke right? This is a j-.

  15. I had my T.V. on mute and I genuinely believed I had just watched a clip of Kryten sticking a spoon up his arse.

    Kryten cacking his pants is still the greatest smeg up ever!

    I actually thought this as I was posting. :P

    “It were bloody lovely… that feelin’ when it all just goes, y’know.”

  20. >A new clip of Kryten shitting on a spoon was just on Dave at 20.15.

  21. Glad to finally see what Kryten doing all that movement was all about. A lot better and of course funnier with context. The original trailer almost made it seem like a Series 8 style gag.

  22. I really like Kryten’s excitement at “That would be me!” but the demonstration is too much.

  23. > I really like Kryten’s excitement at “That would be me!” but the demonstration is too much.

    Pre-VI he wouldn’t have done those movements. Post-VI…every time!

    I’m not saying it’s not funny, but where’s the harm in it just being a line and Bobby doing a gleeful expression??

    Craig knows where it’s at these days. It’s all about subtlety!

  24. G&T Admin

    Subtlety is overrated.

  25. Did anyone see the “Trojan” clips at the end of QI (I think it was QI anyway) before? All silent with a Dave voice over featuring some clips we’ve seen from the Trojan photos

  26. whadfdgjjhjghgttdssgm?

    Well, since the other clips were shit to some, I can’t wait to see the comments about what masterful execution THAT was … LOL

  27. I’m going to retract my earlier comment. I was watching it at work without sound.

    It’s fine. Please continue.

  28. That doesn’t strike me as too bad. I mean, Kryten had his groinal attatchment as early as IV (was it IV?), so it’s not entirely outside the realm of…whatever realm this would fit in.

    It does look odd though. Imagine walking into a room and seeing a Mechanoid appearing to shit on a spoon.

  29. G&T Admin

    It’s not any different to groinal attachment jokes.

  30. G&T Admin

    He’s clearly not shitting on the spoon; if anything, he’s farting on it. It’s also very funny.

  31. Is Kryten cleaning spoons with his rear end? i always thought the back end was the recharge socket.. i guess the groinal attachment jokes are wearing thin lol!

  32. EGAD. But muchos LOLage here.

  33. That’s a great joke, hope that one shot is all we see of it though. If the characters start objecting to it and have a discussion about it I think it would be drawn out, as a quick funny shot though it is hilarious.

  34. > My favourite clip, hands down.

    Same!

    Visual gags are easier to sell in short clips than dialogue, I suppose.

  35. Is Kryten cleaning spoons with his rear end? i always thought the back end was the recharge socket.. i guess the groinal attachment jokes are wearing thin lol!

    He’s drying it. The spoon he picks up is wet, he dries the spoon and puts it away.

  36. He’s drying it. The spoon he picks up is wet, he dries the spoon and puts it away.

    If this were series VIII, he’d explain it exactly that way afterward.

  37. Possibly the stupidest comment I’ve read regarding the Kryten/spoon drying gag was one on TOS which said that the gag wasn’t funny and was a crude series VIII style gag cause the dryer is in the arse. They then went on to say that they should have just made it another groinal attachment function completely ignoring the fact that A) The joke is that the function is in his arse and it wouldn’t be a joke if it wasn’t there and B) The groinal attachment joke (from III) is the exact same crude joke.

  38. Good, I won’t mention it then, wouldn’t want to look stupid.

  39. the people on TOS really need to give VII and VIII a break.. sure VIII was a weak season but still funnier than half the shit thats on telly these days.

  40. Oh good, the opinions of those who read the Guardian! Hopefully they can definitively tell us what we should be thinking about it!

  41. I’m in danger of actually being very enthusiastic about this series. Don’t panic.

  42. I’m in danger of actually being very enthusiastic about this series. Don’t panic.

    you may have to change your name to ‘Positive Pete’ :)

    lol that guardian clip was funny! :)

  43. G&T Admin

    I’m in danger of actually being very enthusiastic about this series. Don’t panic.

    If we end up with you really liking the series and me not liking it, the upcoming six weeks are going to be very odd indeed.

  44. That clip is the funniest released yet. And it makes the previously released scene with Lister stuck outside the ship all the funnier in context.

  45. The doug interview was funny!! i love what he said about how they made some of the ships interior! haha

    and yey! finally a Starbug mention!!!

  46. Damn hadn’t seen the guardian clip. That’s the same one.

  47. Is it just me or does Doug look like he needs a really long break? Massive respect to Doug for all the work he’s put in, all he’s given us, and about to give us in EIGHT BLUMMIN DAYS’ TIME!

  48. EIGHT BLUMMIN DAYS’ TIME!

    *flails wildly*

  49. Two new clips today plus a Doug interview! Kryten drying a spoon with his anus – great. That scene with Kryten and Lister – greater. Doug – legend. The people who commented on the guardian site – cunts.

  50. G&T Admin

    The people who commented on any newspaper site – cunts.

    Fixed that for you.

  51. G&T Admin

    Or even BBC News.

  52. If this were series VIII, he’d explain it exactly that way afterward.

  53. G&T Admin

    Holy shit, i’m quite freaked out by that picture. Can someone recut that scene to take out ‘that frame’? That joke might have been 10 times better had that not been there…

  54. G&T Admin

    Ah! good spot. Why is the edit to a featurette better than the one on the episode itself? :S

  55. Thankyou for reminding me that those montage featurettes even exist. Thanks….

  56. Reading the Guardian website comments for the RD video and fighting the urge to smash my fist through the screen at the sheer uninformed idiocy of it all.

  57. I want Ridley’s Kryten picture as a poster!

  58. I was watching it at work without sound.

    Two hours after reminding myself of this on Twitter and it still tickles me.

    Just the mental image of Pete being indignant at watching Kryten drying spoons with a pathetic fart sound effect dubbed over it. Even better when the only visual reference I have for what Pete looks like is the old Alan Partridge avatar.

    RD XI buildup will never be able to top this and the toothy Vindalunar horse. Marvellous.

    *hums Brazil*

  59. YEAH, YEAH, WHATEVER.

    What episode is the “drying spoons” bit from, anyway? If it’s a shit one, I’m in the clear.

    Probably.

  60. Entangled with the BEGGs.

    The Beginning is the one with the forks.
