The Kevin Eldon Interview

Here’s an unexpected delight. A friend of a friend of a friend got in touch with Kevin Eldon on our behalf, and old 4 Of 27 himself was only too happy to answer some questions via email. There are some extremely minor spoilers for Twentica below, but thankfully Kevin decided to take a somewhat literal approach to many of our questions. You won’t find much in the way of hard fact here, but you’ll hopefully laugh a fair few times. Our endless thanks to Jonathan ‘Jonsmad’ Young (who, along with setting the whole thing up, collaborated with us to provide the questions) and Harry Pye, without either of whom this wouldn’t have been possible.

Craig Charles: “it’s gone brilliantly well”

The sad absence of Rob from the DVDs has been rectified in small amount thanks to his recent appearance on Comedy Connections and now Rob has kindly agreed to an interview with The White Hole, talking about the past present and future of his career. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the ‘crunchy half’ of Grant Naylor…

The Mike Tucker Interview

Mike Tucker is one cog in the genius machine that is (was) the BBC VisFX department, and has worked on Red Dwarf since the first series. Apart from seeing his name on screen in form of a nice in-joke (the manufacturer of Kryten’s Psi-Scan is ‘Tucker Enterprises’) Mike has also appeared in an episode of Red Dwarf and Kryten’s love-blob, Camille; but his acting was limited to wheeling around on an office chair, wearing a blob suit.

Howard Goodall Interview

Well, I’ve gone and done it. I’ve got an interview with a member of the Red Dwarf production team. Take him: Oxford-educated, good background, extremely talented, well-spoken, can stay awake during operas, knows his cheeses. He’s class. And you? What are you? I don’t mean to sound cruel but in comparison you’re scum.
