This DwarfCast discusses Red Dwarf XI & XII whilst adhering to G&T’s spoiler policy. Please ensure your comments do likewise… and while we’re at it, the cast and crew could do worse than giving it a bit of a look over, too. It’s worked ok for us.
A potential final ever episode of Red Dwarf has been filmed for the 10th time in 28 years. G&T were there, represented by beardy Yorkshiremen Daniel Stephenson and Jonathan Capps. Join this duo, along with Tom Pyott and the Fan Club’s Jo Sharples and Mick Hayes as they attempt to summarise an exciting, confusing and slightly emotional recording. Oh, and apologies for the Brummie barging in half way through; he lives in the same house and there’s nothing we could do to stop him.
On a slightly awkward editorial note: last night a picture was tweeted and then deleted by a Red Dwarf crew member. We re-posted it on our Twitter feed, but it was then removed by us on request. There is mention of this AS IT HAPPENS during this recording, but the spoilery details have been bleeped. Please take it as read that the details of the image should be considered a spoiler and so please refrain from mentioning them in the comments.
But never mind all that tot, we’ve now reached the end of a long, long road and finally 12 new episodes of Red Dwarf are in the can and we can all begin the excruciating but exciting wait to see the finished products. We mention this in the episode, but we’d like to take a moment to thank every last person who’s helped us out with the Set Reports each week, and ensured we could maintain a level of coverage of which we’re all extremely proud. So sloppy kisses and hugs to…
Jo Sharples, Shelley Smith, Phil Pagett, Alex Scott, Dan Pendleton, Jed Shepherd, Niki Hutchinson, Kris Carter, John Miller, Jez Harrison, Emmeline May, Carrie Parsons, Jon Botham, Joey Newsome, Aaron Phillips, Curtis Threadgold, Jonathan Young, Stephen Fletcher, Alisdair Green, Pete Martin, Mel Stanley, Stephen Abootman, David Fisher, Andy Holland and Simon Peel, Mick Hayes, Tom Pyott, Alex Newsome, Seb Patrick and Paul Muller. You’re all quite good.
Finally, congratulations to all the cast and crew at, and working for, Grant Naylor Productions and Baby Cow Productions (Red Dwarf) and UKTV for wrapping on what must’ve been an insane feat of TV production. For the rest of you, don’t worry, we have long and detailed plans on how we’re going to go back to being a giant pain in everyone’s arse very soon.
