…since Red Dwarf had a studio audience recording and we’re going to have to think of a different “joke” for next week, aren’t we?
And so, in the blink of an eye, we’re up to episode 4. Assuming broadcast order will be the same, today’s episode will be joining an exclusive club alongside great episodes such as Waiting for God (shut up, it’s brilliant), Stasis Leak, Bodyswap, White Hole, Quarantine, Emohawk and, erm, Duct Soup and Cassandra.
It’s the culmination of what seems to have been an unusual week for the production. For a start, Robert tweeted about having an unexpected day off on Monday, followed by Ed ‘B Camera’ Moore Tweeting about Tuesday’s call time being pushed back to mid-day. This must’ve lead to quite the hectic week of rehearsals and pre-records which unsurprisingly seems to be true for yesterday at least.
Meanwhile, in the world of TOS, ruthless careerist Seb Patrick has taken time out from rolling around naked in a pile of unsold Red Dwarf merchandise to a) inform us of a Facebook competition to win tickets to the last two recordings and b) actually be good at foreshadowing upcoming teasers. Turns out we might want to be keeping an eye on the hilariously bad Dave website for a new video due up at 1pm today (I would’ve waited until it was published before writing this, but, you know…), but for the moment I’m content with that lovely costume rack picture. However, this picture here…
Ian and Danny will form the G&T contingent for this recording and a set report from the latter should be turning up at some point tomorrow.
