Ah, Wednesday. Time for a Dave update. Providing you can find it, that is – when today’s article first went live, it wasn’t linked to on the Red Dwarf news index or the RSS feed, just on the front page of the main Dave site. This is both annoying and very silly – they seriously need a proper CMS. We even had to enlist the help of Si Bromley, for fuck’s sake.
Anyway, this week: two new pictures!
We can take the usual comments for granted – wow, they look amazing, these could almost be shots from Series VIII, look at Chris Barrie’s amusing face, etc. But it doesn’t make them any less true; once again, these are bloody excellent pictures. There’s not as much to say as there is for, say, the bunkroom pictures – not so many tasty background details to extract. Nevertheless, I shall attempt it.
The first shot is interesting because of the lack of background details. Whereabouts are they, exactly? The article assures us that they’re back on Earth at this point, but I can’t figure out what the location is supposed to be. Something that’s largely wood-based, evidently. The sign in the background looks like it could be a shop or a supermarket, but other than that I’m stumped.
The second pic is much more exciting, though – one of those ones that sends a tingle down your spine. It’s the crew, walking down a quiet road in 21st century Britain, having just stepped out of Carbug. Excellent. They all have surprised expressions on their beautiful faces, which is understandable given what we know about the plot. It does beg the question, though – where’s Katerina? We’ve barely seen hide nor hair of her outside a couple of shots on the Dwarf.
As bloody excellent as this update is, it’s the final paragraph that’s the most exciting:
Oh, and next week, we might, just might, have some very special videos from the set of the show, exclusive to Dave.
BEHIND THE SCENES VIDEOS THIS TIME NEXT WEEK EVERYONE. This sounds like a twelve change of underwear trip.
