And so the DwarfCast Book Club advances wearily on, as we continue our re-read (although the failing memories of your hosts means this may as well be a first read) of Doug Naylor's literally seminal novel, Last Human. We're in the final part of the book itself but due to reasons beyond our comprehension it accounts for half of its length so we're splitting it in twain. Join Cappsy, Ian and Danny as they gather round a table at Rita's Kabin and try to figure out what the bloody hell is going on.

Over Ganymede & Titan's long and illustrious life we have seen many milestones. 3 years long service. 6 years long service. 9 years long service. 12 years long service. 15 years long service... 18 years long service. But today we mark the day we officially commentate on the last truly shit episode of Red Dwarf (so far). Its loomed large over us for months as we approached but three heroes have arrived and slew the great beast, probably with some amusingly juxtapositioned song playing in the background.

So now, we present to you the defeated corpse... of Timewave.

[Insert Holly line relevant to a delayed thing eventually happening here]

Yes, it's finally here! Danny, Ian and Cappsy once again put on their best dust jackets, turn on their pink study lamps and somehow defy the laws of gravity to bring you another DwarfCast Book Club! This time around we're putting the chapter Time Fork to bed (but not before marrying it first) as the crew unwittingly murder hundreds in order to free a dangerous psychopath, and Anton Chekhov becomes the sixth Dwarfer.

Well, I suppose we better talk about what's been going on shouldn't we? As you no doubt know, the world of Red Dwarf has been a busy old place this February with both good and bad news, so we've gathered an emergency council to discuss the recent GNP turmoil, the Fan Club's inaugural (and triumphant) Holly Hop event and Rob Grant's new script, Into the Gloop.

As we sit here and hope beyond hope that 2021 will bear as little resemblance to 2020 as humanly possible, here at G&T we're looking to replicate at least one element from the last 12 months: lots of regular DwarfCasts. Whether you think this is a good thing or not is entirely another matter, but never-the-less Ian, Danny and Cappsy have once again gathered to power through the commentaries for Dave Dwarf with Series XII, episode 1, Cured.

We did it, everyone. Almost an entire year of consistent podcasting and all it took was a global pandemic and stay at home orders to make it happen. I even bought a proper microphone. So, in a very nice accident of timing, we are rounding out the year with our final book club forĀ Better Than Life, Part 4: The End and After. Danny, Ian and Cappsy gather round the virtual yule log to discuss the shit out of 12 whole pages, before fully embracing the Christmas cheer with some truly awful parsnip waffles.

I know we said we'd be back soon but just count yourself lucky we only made you wait an extra week and not almost 40 years. As we get very close to finishing Better Than Life, join the pale, waxy figures of Cappsy, Danny and Ian as they enter The Book Club Time and are after feasting on Part Three: Garbage World. What are the long term narrative implications of Garbage World? Is Polymorph a show to book conversion too far? What could possibly be next for the poor giraffe? For those of you not of a nervous disposition, listen on and find out.
