As reported by fanclub Chairman James Bull himself, on the Webboard.
The phrase “FUCKING YES!” springs to mind.
There’s two things to note, here. The first is, frankly, how great Dimension Jump has been recently. I’ll admit that I left my second DJ in 2005 feeling disappointed – for a variety of reasons, which there’s no point dwelling on now. The 2006 event was a complete turnaround – sure, there were problems, and things which could be improved – but the weekend as a whole was a pure joy. With real efforts being made for XIV to fix certain things with the hotel itself (booking the whole place out purely for DJ, providing meals), and now Rob Grant’s booking – it seems the next DJ is set to be even better. Kudos to the fanclub team.
Secondly, is this overwhelming feeling that Rob Grant is coming home. He’s not been involved at all with Dwarf since the release of Backwards in 1996 – and then suddenly, he’s interviewed for the DVDs, polished up and finished Bodysnatcher – and now this.
Despite movie problems, and the lack of a new series since 1999 – it’s a good time to be a Dwarf fan, eh? Now, to plan those questions…
