Time travel is still used in science fiction, but not as much as when SF was in its infancy and early adolescence – much like Faster-Than-Light travel, it is generally considered unscientific. Stephen Hawking, one of the most famous physicists of all time, said that “…the best evidence we have that time travel is not […]
Faster-Than-Light (FTL) travel in science fiction literature seems to be a thing of the past, in most cases. Many of the “new wave” of science fiction writers who are intent on using known scientific knowledge in their stories seem to consider FTL too fraught with fallacies of logic to be of any real scientific value.

Oh dear. Inspired by this ATVRD thread, we bring you: The Red Dwarf Boom guide, a guide to all boom mic appearances in Red Dwarf. Children are dying, and yet we devote our time to this. What a wonderful world we live in. Many thanks to Peter Chant for the idea (yes, blame him), and the various ATVRDers credited.
This is about as technical as it gets for a Red Dwarf fansite. There have been a few decent attempts to cover the subject, but nothing has really gone as in-depth as I would like. If you don’t like science, abandon hope all ye who enter here. Keep in mind that much of this is […]
He is the music man: Howard Goodall talks to me!
Well, thanks to this series, I’ve discovered that the Discovery Channel is really rather splendid. As well as Mr Barrie and his engines, you also have Mark Williams with his trains, and Rory McGrath with his gruesome tales of just how hard life could be back in the old days. It’s well worth an hour […]
Six years after the original batch of re-edited episodes were released, G&T can exclusively reveal that Grant Naylor Productions are currently hard at work on the finishing the job – Series IV-VI Re-Mastered. We obtained a copy of White Hole Re-Mastered, through a source who would rather not be named. The first obvious change is […]
Well, I’ve gone and done it. I’ve got an interview with a member of the Red Dwarf production team. Take him: Oxford-educated, good background, extremely talented, well-spoken, can stay awake during operas, knows his cheeses. He’s class. And you? What are you? I don’t mean to sound cruel but in comparison you’re scum.
Peter Tyler is a veritable Visual Effects expert, having worked in film and television for nearly a quarter of a century. He worked on Red Dwarf as Peter Wragg’s Director of Photography, from the very early days up to Series VII. We managed to successfully stalk him via the internet, and send him a load of questions. Hurrah!
A few days after receiving Series V on DVD, I sat at my computer with the intention of banging out a review during the day. I had my list of titles in front me, a large mug of coffee and a whole heap of thoughts. But then I decided I’d rather sit on the sofa […]
