Yes, it’s the last of these weekly posts that start with the words “Let’s Talk About”. Possibly ever, but hopefully only for a couple of years or so. Tonight, it’s time to talk about the final episode of Red Dwarf X, ominously entitled The Beginning. We know that bits of it were based one of the movie scripts, that it contains a big gun-toting bastard with a moustache, and it’s been suggested that we should make sure we keep watching after the end credits. This is EXCITING. What’s more exciting, however, is the prospect of us not doing any more live Dwarfcasts of a Thursday night. Sadly for you, we’ll be live from 10pm tonight, and the link will be posted on here and on Twitter at around 9:40pm. As it’s the last one, I’m sure you’ll all have plenty to say, so post comments here, or tweet us @ganymedetitan, if you don’t want to miss out on the final opportunity to have us to ingest your points.
In the meantime, there are many ways to keep yourself occupied for the next couple of hours. You could start with Cappsy’s spoiler-free set report for tonight’s episode. Or, if you’d prefer to get your Red Dwarf fix from people who write or star in the show, why not try the latest episode of Robert Llewellyn’s Fully Charged, in which he interviews Doug Naylor about the vague science of the series. Meanwhile, Den of Geek also have an interview with Doug, although I’ve only read half of this, as there’s a big-ass spoiler warning half way down the page. Tread carefully.
Oh, and speaking of spoilers, please spare a thought for our spoiler policy graphic, which will be removed this evening after a year’s solid service. Goodbye, spoiler policy graphic. We’ll miss you.
