Yes, DwarfCasts are finally back, following a four month wait between the end of Series XI and a day on which almost all of us could be in the same room. Has this additional thinking time enabled us to process our thoughts on the series enough to provide a coherent and insightful analysis as to where it went right and where it went wrong, or will it be the usual mix of ranting, swearing and giggling? Join Jonathan Capps, John Hoare, Tanya Jones, Danny Stephenson (down the line from our Yorkshire branch) and Ian Symes to find out.
This first part of our look back on Red Dwarf‘s eleventh series covers, predictably, Twentica, Samsara and Give & Take, reassessing these episodes with the benefit of hindsight, repeated viewings, and in the case of John Hoare, not watching on an iPhone from a hospital bed. Topics include how to end an episode, whether or not there’s such a thing as a computer scientist, a proposed spin-off for two peripheral characters, the stupidity of introducing Lister as “Listerano”, the mystery of Ronald Littlewood and how to tell the difference between the acts of fellatio and cunnilingus as depicted by skeletons.
DwarfCasts will return with Series XI Semi Retrospective Byte Two soon.
