Smeg Nose Day News Posted by Ian Symes on 28th February 2017, 22:08 Thanks to cwickham in our forum for pointing us in the direction of this tweet from TV’s Emma Kennedy: Oh boy Red Dwarf fans, do we have something for you. OH BOY OH BOY. #RedNoseDay — Emma Kennedy (@EmmaKennedy) February 28, 2017 Well, this certainly seems to suggest that there is something Red Dwarf-related planned for this year’s edition of Comic Relief’s biennial fundraiser, which takes place on Friday 24th March. This would be the first such telethon appearance since 1998’s specially-shot Children In Need sketch. Previous Red Nose Day contributions consist of an extremely brief appeal message in 1991, and miming to Bohemian Rhapsody for 1993’s epic all-star singalong. But what will this year’s offering entail? Something specially shot? If so, will it be a full sketch, or just a quick piece to camera? Or maybe they’ll be airing a preview of the already-edited Series XII, in a similar manner to the way Children In Need often trails Doctor Who Christmas specials. Alternatively, it could be a collection of smeg-ups or something, or maybe the deleted scenes that were omitted from the Series XI DVD. Either way, we’ll keep our eyes peeled for details – a later tweet from Kennedy indicated that news will be forthcoming in a couple of weeks. UPDATE (02/03/17): Well, this clears things up: Dear Red Dwarf fans, I’m helping run the RND auction. Get ready. What we have to offer you is AWESOME. — Emma Kennedy (@EmmaKennedy) March 2, 2017 @ganymedetitan yes. Not a sketch — Emma Kennedy (@EmmaKennedy) March 2, 2017 Now we feel slightly bad for getting carried away and making the news seem less exciting than it could have been, but still – looks like at least one, presumably well-off, Red Dwarf fan will be getting a lovely Red Nose Day treat.
