Slightly odd question, but I have noticed Kryten (played by Robert Llewellyn) has frequently had this ‘hands on chest’ pose in recent episodes (including in the newly released Series 12 episode earlier today).
Not sure why this is, but perhaps it could be the fact that the Kryten costume looks slightly… larger, these days. Wonder if Robert is perhaps slightly paranoid about his extra girth?
Your slightly odd question is barely even a question.
Is Robert paranoid about his weight gain?
Possibly. Or perhaps he’s found a character trait/tick that doesn’t involve attaching things to his knob.
Other than Red Dwarf, what do you like, Jawscvmcdia?
Are you okay?
Hey, no offense intended, and I know almost everyone gains weight as they get older (and Robert’s done remarkably well in that regard to keep it off) but I just keep noticing it every time he does the same pose.
It’s just a convenient place to rest your hands. The suit itself looks like it’s got bulkier more recently and considering he can’t stick his hands in his pockets, and the bulk of the arms/chest means it’s awkward to hold your hands together at waist level, resting them on top of the chest is the next most comfortable position.
