It’s Been 1,428 Days…

…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.

  1. You missed out Robert’s Periscope broadcast which had Doug chatting away off-camera. It may or may not have featured Kryten’s quarters.

  2. It was a classic Red Dwarf romp with all the boys. Lots of laughs. A lovely developing storyline that had a decent reveal. It was a complex tale.

    The cast were spot on. Robert does extremely well. People say he forgets lines. This is not true. The script is very information heavy and gets all the awkward conversations.

    The look and feel is better than the previous Series, it just sits better. Warmth and structure come across more, even on the monitors it felt more involved. Tight angles. Multiple shots.

    I’m very happy.

  3. A titbit I don’t think I’ve seen mentioned:

    Delighted with the reaction of the fans to the #reddwarf lighting… Very much aiming for a modern take on series IV/V/VI #lovelyshadows
