Every single Red Dwarf fan ever knows that Red Dwarf was based on the Dave Hollins: Space Cadet sketches from Son of Cliché. But that’s not the full story. Early versions of many famous scenes and concepts, particularly from the early series, can be found in this sketch show, and this document lists the vast […]
Here we go… a complete list of insults used in the 52 episodes of Red Dwarf. Many of these are highly inventive, original and amusing, whereas others are mere variations on the word ‘smeg’. Still, there are some interesting findings. The insults are listed alphabetically, and where there is more than one occurance of the insult being used, these are listed chronologically. Eventually, this document will include Red Dwarf Night, the Smeg Upstapes, deleted scenes, maybe even the cast commentary. Stay tuned.
Incompetence will be released in December 2003. However, G&T managed to get hold of an uncorrected proof copy, on which this preview is based. Hooray! But, don’t blame us if anything mention on this page changes for the final published version. You have been warned. Well, you’ve got to hand it to the man. After […]

Well maybe not a dark side as such, probably an ‘off-white side’ may be a better description, but here goes anyway. Being one the ‘Older’ fans I have loved Dwarf from the start, the Characters, situations and above all, Humour has been there from the very beginning. Series 1 and 2 were excellent and to […]
Despite having debuted at around the same time as Have I Got News For You, Red Dwarf has been rather less successful. While the former has been promoted to a BBC One favourite and created a widely-recognised approach, Red Dwarf continues to languish in obscurity, unnoticed except by a small number of hard-core enthusiasts. The […]

From humble beginnings as a small, annual collectors’ fair, Memorabilia has grown into a star-studded event, taking up a huge hall in Birmingham’s NEC. As well as the main fair, usually held in March or April, this year saw the first Summer event, which was held over the weekend of the 26th and 27th of […]
Not to be confused with the hollowed-out book in which Rimmer kept his diary, this alphabet-based compilation originally featured in Red Dwarf Night, and was subsequently released on the Series VII Byte Three video and the Series II DVD. In this document, we go through each letter, detailing the clips and interviews used, and give […]
