Let’s Talk About We Have Been Watching

Fans of Gogglebox, the popular television programme in which cameras capture the reactions of ordinary people as they watch TV, may be interested in We Have Been Watching, which is the same. Except that instead of ordinary people, this UKTV Original features comedians and sitcom stars, and their viewing material consists of classic comedy clips, old and new. The show started with a Christmas special late last year, and has since embarked on a full series, which is currently airing on Wednesday nights. Among the regulars are two elderly gentlemen named Craig Charles and Robert Llewellyn – truly the Bill & Josef of the cast.

Anyway, each episode tends to feature at least one of the regulars watching the show that they’re best known for, and according to this tweet from Gold, tonight’s the night for Red Dwarf. No official word on which episode they’ll be watching, but if it’s from Series X or XI, this is probably the closest we’ll get to a cast commentary. So we’ll be tuning in tonight at 8pm on Gold, and if you’re doing so too, then this is the place for your comments.

  1. Judging by the advert, they’re watching Lemons.

    Very good, Harry.

    Probably a good idea that they’re commenting on their own stuff. Those bits were the only parts that worked in the Christmas special.

  3. Yeah, I watched the Christmas special, thought it was a bit and miss. I was considering Sky+ing the series, but thought better of it. I’ll have a look tonight, though.

  4. Surely they will be watching the boxer shorts from polymorph.

  5. There’s really not much to say about that clip, and it’s already been said multiple times.

    It’s overrated.

    I really rather enjoyed that! It was just Robert & Craig and James Acaster & Nish Kumar watching, but the latter seemed to be genuine fans. They got what the show was about, and why it works, and it was just lovely to see Red Dwarf being talked of in the same vein as the likes of Hancock, Ab Fab and Some Mothers Do ‘Ave Em.

    I spotted a Series III DVD on the table in front of Craig and Robert – will we be getting the underpants scene later in the series?

  8. I wish Gold was on freeview.

    Looking that way. Did we ever hear any more about Doug’s solution to no DVD commentaries he tweeted about?

  9. That is delightful. Good old Duane Dibbley the duke of dork put the segment on you tube.

    I want Doug commentating and I want it now!

  10. A lot of Craig & Bobby in Episode 4 as well as them picking up the III DVD and having a quick chat about that (Bobby having his eyes glued open then soapy snow flung at him).
