Though it’s already been posted in a comment thread by one Andrew Ellard (whom you might have thought to have a rather better place to post news bits, but we’ll not quibble if he wants to do our job for us as well), we thought this was rather worthy of promoting to its own front page post. You’ll find we’ll probably do a lot of this in the coming weeks.
Well, I’m excited. I know we’ve had photos of Robert being fitted for his mask, and everything, but… well, seeing that picture – even though it’s just the back of some Scouse bloke in a leather jacket, jeans and fake dreadlocks – just makes it all feel so much more real. Lister is back. Red Dwarf is back. And putting aside any misgivings you might want to voice for one glorious moment… don’t it make you feel good?
