For the second time in just over four months, I set my alarm from half seven to make the journey to my local Woolworths; a journey that is as much spiritual as it is physical. My palms were sweaty, knees weak, arms were heavy. There was vomit on my sweater already – mum’s spaghetti. I was nervous, but on the surface I looked calm and ready to, um, buy a DVD. Something which I did with some gusto.

Well, I haven’t actually done anything to the website this week. This is an announcement that the follow up to the incredibly in-depth Series I DVD Review will be up at about 18:05 GMT on Monday. If this doesn’t come off, I’ll look pretty stupid. Those guys on the left will be here. Possibly.
A mere 16 days to go until the Series II DVD is released, and we’re still getting very exciting news through about the extras. The official site has a list of the deleted scenes . They sound brilliant, and I am now pants-wettingly excited about the DVD.
Two updates in as many weeks. You lucky, lucky people. If you look to your left, you will see the Series II bunkroom menu. Nice, isn’t it? The drive room menu is another matter, but more about that on the 10th February.
This week I’ve been working hard on the capsules, with The End and Future Echoes being completely finished and a new index system. I’ve also corrected an embarrassing mistake on the commentary page. Thanks to moss for his pedantry skills.
Hello! Apologies for the lack of updates recently. I am a lazy fucker. Still, never to mind. All the archived DVD news can be found over at the official site. They still don’t have a DVD review as good as my one though.
I’d like to recommend two excellent sites. Firstly, my good pal Moss has written a companion to the model shots from the Series I DVD. It’s brilliant and has some great screen-grabs. Secondly, premiere Red Dwarf site Groovetown is continuing to go from strength to strength. It’s the best place around for news on Red Dwarf stars and what they’re up to now.
When the Series I DVD was released all those weeks ago, nothing divided the fans opinions as much as the Drunk featurette. While some admired the slick editing and well-timed pace of the piece, others thought it did not reflect their idea of the humour in Red Dwarf. The idea that Red Dwarf is all […]
Just to even the balance, I thought I’d provide a positive review of a vaguely Red Dwarf-related product. The Very Best of Have I Got News For You features Red Dwarf alumni such as Tony Slattery, Arthur Smith, Craig Ferguson, Tony Hawks, and of course Hattie Hayridge and Craig Charles.
Some of you may be interested to know that two Red Dwarf-related clips are used in Seriously Funny, the new compilation of clips from Comic Relief, which was released on DVD in time for Christmas. These are part of the Bohemian Rhapsody video from 1993, and the clip of Rimmer falling off his chair in […]
Those of you with access to digital/satelitte/cable can hear Craig Charles’ voice, commentating on a Japanese game show called Takeshi’s Castle, mid-mornings on Challenge TV.
On the 24th April 2002 I pre-ordered my copy of Red Dwarf Series I on DVD. Back then I had no idea what to expect. In fact back then I assumed we would have the re-mastered episodes and a few paltry extras.
