We e-mailed DVD Associate Producer Andrew Ellard, on the off chance that he might provide us with a little interview. He agreed, and wasn’t put off when ‘little’ expanded to ‘fucking huge’. We send Andrew lots and lots of hugs and kisses for all his help, and his intriguing and honest answers.
Sci-fi shows are notorious for spanning published spin-offs. These range from reference books, to programme guides, to novelisations and even fan-fiction. However, these are often shoddy, with poor research and lazy writing. This accusation can not be levelled against Red Dwarf, which is usually just as good on the page as it is on the […]
Inspired by a combination of the various Red Dwarf Drinking Games around the net and Tanya Jones, we present our version, for use when forced to watch a Re-mastered episode (to try and make it slightly enjoyable). Simply do as instructed. Have fun. WARNING: Watching more than two episodes of the Re-mastered series in a […]
As I write this, the first three series of Red Dwarf are available on DVD. They have become massive sellers, and been subject to ultimately unanimous praise from fans, the public and journalists alike. For the sake of counter-argument, I aim to address a few issues I’ve had with the first two releases, largely in […]
We take a look at what is promised for the Series III DVD… We’re very lucky, you know, to be Dwarf fans. Not only are we getting series-by-series extras-laden releases, when most comedy shows are lucky to get a DVD release that isn’t a sodding best-of, but we even get articles about the production of […]
So, the September 2003 shooting date has now officially been put back to May 2004. Our reaction was split between “Wah!” and “Hooray!”. “Wah”, because obviously it’s yet more delays. But “Hooray!”, because it shows that things are still happening: that the movie isn’t dead; that plans are still being made; indeed, that pre-production is […]
Fresh from the unexpected success of asking Robert Llewellyn for an interview, here is an equally exclusive Norman Lovett interview.
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 […]
