Ok, so this is where our spoiler policy gets a little complicated. Asking fans not to reveal plot details is one thing, but when the cast blab stuff in public interviews… well, we’d be remiss not to the quote the whole thing. And that’s what we’re about to do. The spoiler in question centres around a gag and the loose plot of an episode. You have been warned.
As the edit for Red Dwarf X continues we’ve been starting to see a few cracks appearing, mainly thanks to an alarmingly candid Doug Naylor saying whatever he damn well pleases on Twitter. This is obviously brilliant for fans, but I can’t imagine it’s all that fantastic for the other people on the production.
In 1997 a great big bastard of a Red Dwarf model was built for the re-mastered project. It was too big to properly film in a motion control studio, so this ‘pencil’ model was forever immortalised in CG form in both the re-mastered project and Series VIII a year later. 14 years on, and that beautiful, detailed model will finally make it on to the screen for Series X.
So, the audience days are done and it’s time to settle into our comfy chairs and see how the painfully long wait until broadcast unfolds. Time for us to take a big info dump right onto your astonished faces.
A final episode of Red Dwarf has been recorded in front of a studio audience for the 8th time in over 24 years.

…since blah blah blah fuck you.
Robert Llewellyn has gone dun an Audioboo. He reveals some things about Red Dwarf X that you might want to hear (one of which could be described as a mild spoiler, as it mentions the nature of some guest characters).
…since Red Dwarf had a studio audience recording and we’re going to have to think of a different “joke” for next week, aren’t we?
A full episode of Red Dwarf has been recorded in front of a studio audience for the first time since 2011. G&T were there, obvs.
