…since a second episode in a series of Red Dwarf had a studio audience recording. Well, they’re back at it from 6pm tonight.
We were going to use these weekly posts as a way of rounding up all the Dwarf-related titbits from the past seven days, but, well, there’s not been much. Maybe the cast and crew have been asked to rein the teasers in, or maybe they’re all just too busy, as moaned about by Robert Llewellyn. If you spot anything interesting, or if there’s something we’ve missed, do post it in the comments on this piece. Standard spoiler policy reminder goes here.
Still, Robert did find time to write a short blog post, on Google Plus of all fucking places, so there’s that. Plus, there’s a Guardian article about the show in general, which despite confusing the novels and the show, and neglecting to acknowledge the existence of anything made after 1999, is actually quite good. The tone is genuinely enthusiastic and positive, and they go to great lengths to emphasise that the laughter was not canned, which makes a pleasant change.
But anyway, yes – Red Dwarf XI episode two is being recording tonight. We’ll have another cobbled together set report over the weekend, thanks to our two top secret ticket-wielding agents. We’re covered for this week, but are you going to one of the other ten? If so, please get in touch if you’d like to help document a very minor piece of history.
