Christ, there’s a lot happening at the moment.
First TV trailer! – This will be happening on WATCH tomorrow at 2:35PM and then on Dave the next day at 7:10am. This is massively exciting, obviously, and it would be even more so if the trailer is different to the online one we got a few weeks ago…
#vindalunar – One thing we must all remember is that Dave Lister fucking *loves* curry. Presumably this little mentioned character trait is the inspiration behind this hashtag which was YELLED at us by Roopesh. It’s referring to something that will be happening over on joindave.co.uk/vindalunar imminently, and which is apparently “A OUT OF THIS WORLD EXPERIENCE”. At the moment it’s just a blank page so get your F5 fingers geared up and we’ll see you back here when we know what the fuck is going on.
QUICK EDIT: – Looks like we’re getting the launch date.
QUICK EDIT 2: – It seems Naylor Minor is trying to break us, as he’s chosen this time to post this picture of the Red Dwarf refurb. TOO MUCH NEWS. CAN’T COMPUTE.
FINAL EDIT, I PROMISE – Oh. So, the Vindalunar site is currently showing a countdown to 9pm tomorrow, which is presumably when the launch date of Red Dwarf X will be revealed. It seems if you use the ‘Tweet’ button on there you can speed this process up and also “LAUNCH A CURRY AND LAGER INTO SPACE”. Not sure cheap promotional tricks like this are really necessary, but whatever.
However, it seems they might’ve let slip the launch date a little early right here, which states “Red Dwarf is next on at 9:00 pm on Thursday, 4th October on Dave.”. Is that our actual launch date, then? It could well be, but it also could well be referring to a repeat run of series VIII, given the picture directly above it. Either way, we’ll find out at some point tomorrow.
ANOTHER SMALL UPDATE: Now Naylor Major has rather cryptically tweeted ‘May the 4th be with you’. Is this a hint that the 4th October is the correct launch date?
