DwarfCast 68 – Red Dwarf XII – Episode 6 – Set Report

dc-sr-126-banner

This DwarfCast discusses Red Dwarf XI & XII whilst adhering to G&T’s spoiler policy. Please ensure your comments do likewise… and while we’re at it, the cast and crew could do worse than giving it a bit of a look over, too. It’s worked ok for us.

A potential final ever episode of Red Dwarf has been filmed for the 10th time in 28 years. G&T were there, represented by beardy Yorkshiremen Daniel Stephenson and Jonathan Capps. Join this duo, along with Tom Pyott and the Fan Club’s Jo Sharples and Mick Hayes as they attempt to summarise an exciting, confusing and slightly emotional recording. Oh, and apologies for the Brummie barging in half way through; he lives in the same house and there’s nothing we could do to stop him.

DwarfCasts from Ganymede & TitanDwarfCast 68 – Red Dwarf XII – Episode 6 – Set Report (99.15MB)

On a slightly awkward editorial note: last night a picture was tweeted and then deleted by a Red Dwarf crew member. We re-posted it on our Twitter feed, but it was then removed by us on request. There is mention of this AS IT HAPPENS during this recording, but the spoilery details have been bleeped. Please take it as read that the details of the image should be considered a spoiler and so please refrain from mentioning them in the comments.

But never mind all that tot, we’ve now reached the end of a long, long road and finally 12 new episodes of Red Dwarf are in the can and we can all begin the excruciating but exciting wait to see the finished products. We mention this in the episode, but we’d like to take a moment to thank every last person who’s helped us out with the Set Reports each week, and ensured we could maintain a level of coverage of which we’re all extremely proud. So sloppy kisses and hugs to…

Jo Sharples, Shelley Smith, Phil Pagett, Alex Scott,  Dan Pendleton, Jed Shepherd, Niki Hutchinson, Kris Carter, John Miller, Jez Harrison, Emmeline May, Carrie Parsons, Jon Botham, Joey Newsome, Aaron Phillips, Curtis Threadgold, Jonathan Young, Stephen Fletcher, Alisdair Green, Pete Martin, Mel Stanley, Stephen Abootman, David Fisher, Andy Holland and Simon Peel, Mick Hayes, Tom Pyott, Alex Newsome, Seb Patrick and Paul Muller. You’re all quite good.

Finally, congratulations to all the cast and crew at, and working for, Grant Naylor Productions and Baby Cow Productions (Red Dwarf) and UKTV for wrapping on what must’ve been an insane feat of TV production. For the rest of you, don’t worry, we have long and detailed plans on how we’re going to go back to being a giant pain in everyone’s arse very soon.

  1. *Settles down to listen* This had better be worth it.

  2. Yes that image should be taken as a spoiler because fucking hell.
    Sadly it’s ruined something for me :(

  3. I don’t think you can hear me say I’m going for a pee at the beginning.

  4. Alright, I’ll let you off. Most enlightening in it’s own odd little way.
    Cheers though, these set reports are actually quite…exciting(?)…(again, in their own odd little way) to read and listen to when you’ve not been lucky enough to get tickets, and want to devour as much sense of the atmosphere as possible on recording nights, checking the Tweets of cast and crew members for any slight hint of a peek into the new load of episodes. Long time fanatics and G&Ters like me appreciate the opportunity to soak up that whole post-recording vibe. So, y’know, thanks.

    Sorry, I got all emotional there. Ignore it and scroll on to the next comment.

  5. A good listen, very thorough. The phones thing was weird, I kept expecting them to go ‘cut, we need you to turn them off again please!’ Also agree that the audience energy was very good, probably the best in terms of reactions from the 3 that I went to.

  6. A wonderful listen. It made me wish I had been there more than ever, and makes me anticipate what’s coming that much more.

  7. God, I sound awful. Sorry everyone. Great night though!

  8. Thanks guys. Thighs. I got an old Dwarf Cast logo on my playback window – a reference to the old school logos on the new series?

    That’s fairly weird…

  10. Just a heads up, the year is wrong (2015) on the XML feed. It wont appear as a new release for people.

  11. Probably just a quirk of the phone I’m using re the old Dwarf Cast logo.

  12. Would be great if these audio set reports were also typed up as articles for those that aren’t able to listen to the audio file for one reason or another. :)

  13. Hey! I’m so brill, I get thanked TWICE.

    Fucking check ME out.

    *Smug Mode*

  14. God this sounds exciting. There must be some kind of past re-visiting or something to account for the number of scenes / costumes / excited remarks. I have loads of ideas in my head about what the episode could be.

    And yes, thanks for everyone for all the set reports. They’ve made the wait a whole load more exciting and excruciating!

  15. G&T Admin

    Hey! I’m so brill, I get thanked TWICE.

    Whoops, this accidental over-thanking has now been corrected. Greedy boy!

    Totally get that not everyone can listen to the audios, for a variety of reasons, and appreciate that it must be frustrating. However, the hours upon hours that it would take to transcribe a rambly old chat like this make it impossible for us to provide such a thing. In general, when we use DwarfCasts to cover something that would usually be a written piece, it’s precisely because of a lack of time.

  17. That was a great listen and a wonderful way to finish up enjoying this new 12 episodes filming period.
    I love how you said you were more excited to see XII than XI what a delightfully weird position
    we are in right now, impatiently waiting them both. I agree. This dwarfcast and my own limited experience of seeing one sixth
    Of recordings puts me in similar thinking. Its certainly a vibe of “Better than ..X” to miss quote Rimmer! In this anticipation period.

  18. Hey! I’m so brill, I get thanked TWICE.

    Whoops, this accidental over-thanking has now been corrected. Greedy boy!

    Aw. :( The very definition of a thankless task.

  19. > A potential final ever episode of Red Dwarf has been filmed for the 10th time in 28 years

    Out of curiosity: the last episode of XI is obviously one of the two which wasn’t potentially the final ever, which was the other one?

  20. VII and VIII were commissioned at the same time, so presumably Nanarchy.

  21. G&T Admin

    Yes, that’s what I seem to remember thinking at the time.
