So for those that don’t know, Liverpool Street Station is a big train station in London, lots of mainline and tube lines go through it, and I use it every day.
Last week I found myself sitting on the Central Line next to Philip Labey who played young Rimmer in The Beginning. I got on at Liverpool Street heading east out of town, and noticed him right away. Found myself sat next to him at the next stop. He got off at Stratford so it wasn’t for long, only 2 stops but there we go.
Then, this morning about 45mins ago I was coming out of the station on my way to work and walked straight past Micahel Ralph, the production designer in Red Dwarf X.
Anyone walked past or sat next to any minor Red Dwarf related people in their usual comings and goings?
I’ve ‘met’ Colin Baker a couple of times. He came to my primary school when he was the Doctor and I got a signed picture, but I was too little and my parents hated Dr Who so I had no idea who he was.
As an adult I donated blood and he was laying on the next bed doing likewise.
Red Dwarf related I did some contract work at the BBC and saw a whole bunch of people, including Craig Charles. I had to internalise my fangirl squealing though, as we’d been told that if we approached anyone for anything other than fixing their computer we’d get the sack.
I’m about 90% sure I was walking behind one of the G&T admins in Wood Lane tube station a few weeks ago but I didn’t want to say anything in case it seemed a bit weird and stalkery. Not sure which one it was but it was definitely the ‘type’.
Jessica Hynes (nee Stevenson) shops in Morrisons, I discovered the other morning when shopping for breakfast. That said, she’s good friends with a friend of mine and I’ve sat near her in various places when visiting my girlfriend’s folks in Folkestone, so the excitement wears off. She’s very loud.
