Series III DVD Cover Preview? featured image

The R2 Project has got what they think is a preview of the Series III DVD Cover in its Rumour Control section. “We received the following picture in the mail this morning, hopefully it is the sleeve artwork for series III of Red Dwarf”, they say. Well, if it is, it’s a very bad quality version of it – poor washed-out colour, with the ship being nowhere near as detailed as on the I and II covers. Also, if you take a look at the Desktop Backgrounds section of the official site, you can see that the design is nothing like the DVD Starbugone. In other words, it looks exactly like a mock, done by some wag or another. But we’re willing to be proved wrong…

UPDATE (10/04/03): For the final (and blindingly obvious) proof, look at the bottom of the cover – and the dodgy editing work done on the black bar. Also, the green Starbug is… Blue Midget, tinted green (with a few minor modifications). Why the hell didn’t they use the official Starbug desktop background on the official site? Anyway, it looks like we’ll have to wait for some more DVD Details for cover news.

There ain’t no place in the whole of cyber-space. G&T is a website dedicated to the BBC2 sci-fi comedy series Red Dwarf. And, if you needed the fact that Red Dwarf is a BBC2 sci-fi comedy series explaining to you, then you’ve come to the wrong place, frankly. The site is written, designed and maintained by two long-term Dwarf experts from Internetland, whose aim is to bring you up-to-date news, in-depth guides and strongly-worded opinion pieces. As well as eventually providing astonishingly detailed capsules for all 52 episodes, we also aim to be the web’s #1 resource for all information pertaining to the excellent DVDs and the forthcoming movie. Our favourite colour is orange.

We hope you enjoy reading the site, and that you’ll re-visit us regularly. If you have any comments to make on the site, then contact us. Only, try not to use the word smeg more than three times in the same sentence.

For those of you who used to browse the old site, most of the articles have been updated slightly, and the new ones are: Don’t Leave Us Hanging, Under Fire, and Alternate Personalities Featurette. The Red Dwarf DVD & Movie FAQ is also now hosted here. Expect updates at least weekly – with a report on Dimension Jump X next week.
