SFX’s relationship with Red Dwarf has been up and down over the years, but in recent years they’ve been treating the show very well, devoting a good amount of space to preview Back To Earth (not to mention the special cover created for the show). The November edition (November? You stupid fuckers) carries a substantial four page interview with Chris, Craig and Robert and it’s really very pleasant indeed.

So, the Vindalunar tweet counter has reached 100%. When it happened, the display fucked up for a short while, and then the webcam feed was replaced by a countdown. So, we were counting down to a countdown. Brilliant. Presumably, the smeg balloon, or whatever it is, will be launched at 1:30pm BST.
EDIT: It’s done. Read on for a full report.
Right, there WAS, very briefly, a new teaser video uploaded to Youtube by Red Dwarf HQ earlier. It’s now gone. Presumably, this was supposed to go up tomorrow, and it accidentally got published early. Still, I was halfway through this article when it was pulled, so let’s carry on with analysis anyway…
