This is probably going to bite me in the arse, but I’m going to go ahead and assume we’re not getting a traditional update from Dave today in lieu of news of an EXCITING way to get your fix of trailers. WARNING: may contain tedious hoop jumping.
While reporting the news that Dave will be showing each series in reverse order starting this weekend, the Radio Times have dropped a curious bit of information regarding future trailers:
… seasoned Dwarfers will be chuffed to learn that Dave will also be broadcasting secret codes during the show’s ad breaks, which can be entered on the channel’s website to access brand new Red Dwarf X trailers every weekend until the new series’ launch.
Ok, so it’s not *that* tedious, but the fact it’s going force me to watch through Series VIII tomorrow is bordering on a breach of basic human rights. Each code will be revealed during the Saturday repeats, so the good news is we’ll be getting four new trailers between now and October 6th, which can only be a good thing.
This campaign is once again organised by the dazzlingly brilliant Five by Five and their press release gives out the URL www.JoinDave.co.uk/RedDwarfX, which is currently redirecting to Dave’s Red Dwarf news page but will presumably soon be the place to go and unlock the new trailers.
In other news Dave’s weekly podcast series has published the first in a series of four main cast interviews, starting with Robert Llewellyn. It’s fine.
