A magazine poll and the 2009 calendar, of course!
Well, if you were hoping today’s TOS update was going to shed a little light on this week’s exciting news coming from the lips and chin of Robert Llewellyn then you wont be alone in feeling a little in the dark today. We’ve got just the one update to digest, and that’s the news that Red Dwarf has come joint second in a Radio Times poll asking readers which shows they would like to made in to a film. However, there are some small nuggets to take from this: the Red Dwarf TV special *is* mentioned here, meaning this is, of sorts, our first confirmation from GNP. Also, has anyone else seen that Movie flyer before? I’ve certainly not seen a version with such a clear view of the Agonoid… er, sorry, I mean ‘Sapienoid’.
Second up, the most rad Rad, has spotted that buytheprint.com have stuck up the cover of the 2009 calendar and made it available to preorder. Blimey that’s hot. The cover is, of course, a lovely adaptation of Stephen Hawkin’s A Brief History of Time, but what does this mean for the actual content of the calendar? A run down of the various space phenomena in the Dwarf Universe? Or will be what it says on the tin; a brief history of Red Dwarf itself to tie in with the possible ‘clip show’ aspect of whatever the hell this TV special is going to be? I guess we’ll see, but it’s looking very promising, never-the-less.
That’s it for now, but I’m sure there’ll be something much bigger to be reporting on soon, so KEEP IT G&T. Thanks.
