TOS celebrates the 20th Anniversary of the first transmission of Future Echoes with one of the most interesting updates we’ve had in a while.
- Infinity: Welcomes Careful Drivers… while you sleep. Better Than Life… while you sleep!: It seems almost comically overdue but Laughing Stock are now in the process of releasing its Red Dwarf content in everyone’s favourite digital formats (well, CD and iTunes)! Thinking about it, it does make good sense to wait until the TV series has been fully released before sticking more stuff in the market, but it’s still a move that’s well overdue. There’s no word exactly what will be released (they’ve got abridged and unabridged versions of the first two books and two series of the adapted radio shows to choose from) but I hope that if we don’t get the lot, then at least the unabridged versions will be put out in favour of the abridged. Now, let’s see if Harper Collins get the message and start up similar plans for Last Human and Backwards.
- It’s his show’s birthday and he’ll write a lovely seven paragraph article if he wants to: Ah, lovely Rob Grant. It’s hard to think that it was only a few years ago when he was awfully distant from the Red Dwarf scene, but now we’ve had him play a big part in the best DVD release to date and a message from him to the fans feels just as at home on TOS than anything from Doug Naylor. It’s great to have him around.
So, an excellent update. Nothing else seems to be going on in the wider world of Dwarf apart from news of Danny’s sword play flooding news syndications everywhere.
See you here a some point after 4:00 tomorrow to discuss the end result of the BIG COUNTDOWN, then!
