It’s the final instant reaction Dwarfcast of the series, beset from all sides by technical problems that make Red Dwarf X‘s production look like a walk in the park. But still, this version of the ‘cast is the definitive way to listen to how me, Cappsy, Danny, John, Tanya and TORDFC’S Jo reacted to The Beginning, joined along the way by special guests Jonathan ‘Jonsmad’ Young and Seb ‘Seb’ Patrick. There’s also yet more exclusive news regarding the next Dimension Jump convention, a summary of our views on the series as a whole, and an ultra-rare piece of sincerity right at the end.
Now, the fuck ups. An hour or so in to the live broadcast, we dropped off the air due to the Spreaker console crashing. Thankfully, it happened at a fairly clean edit point, so this edited version of the ‘cast simply bridges the gap between the remounted show with a little jingle. We dropped off the air once more as we were beginning to wrap up, so rather than trying to start a third broadcast, we just carried on recording at our end as if everything was fine. So the last few minutes of this mp3 are never before heard! See if you can spot the exact moment that Jonathan Capps realised we’d dropped off air. There’s also an issue with our Skype correspondents – they couldn’t actually hear everything that we were saying, consequently they don’t always answer our questions and there’s a lot of talking over one another. Apologies to Jon and Seb for this cock-up; hopefully it won’t matter too much to you, dear listener.
A genuine and heartfelt thank you to everyone who joined us in our ludicrous venture to broadcast live after each episode; those that listened live, sent in comments, tweeted us, or downloaded the podcast afterwards. It’s been incredibly good fun, and your feedback has been extremely rewarding. Thanks once more to our guest interviewees over the course of the series – Bill Pearson, Craig Charles, Doug Naylor, Rebecca Blackstone and Steven Wickham – and to all our very good friends who have joined us in blathering on – Jo Sharples, Jezzmund Tutu, Alex Newsome, Kris Carter, Rich Lawden, Curtis Threadgold, Carrie & Kiran Parsons, Pete Martin, Seb Patrick, Julian Hazeldine and Jonathan Young. Dwarfcasts will return in: Red Dwarf X – Just The Interviews.
