I emailed him, he agreed, I emailed the questions, he emailed me the answers. And so is the process that let to this interview. Not quite as good as being sat in front of him with a Dictaphone and a notepad but what the hey, this is still an interview with Robert Llewellyn! Enjoy.
On Thursday 7th August, Danny John-Jules appeared on RI:SE. Now, the irritating thing about RI:SE is that it should be very good. It’s really nicely produced; the music and titles are wonderful, and there’s some lovely ideas in it – the lovely Zora reads the news in front of the studio gallery, and then there’s […]
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 […]

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 […]
It’s very rare that we disagree about things, but when we do it tends to be interesting. When we realise that we have opposing views about the setting of Series VIII, we decided to thrash out this article in an IRC session. You can read the full log of that session here. Below is the […]
While the scenes deleted from Series I were entertaining purely for the curiosity value, the ones from Series II are actually very funny. Most of them are funny enough to have fitted into the first series, and would have no trouble at all getting into Series VII or VIII…
As per the Series I DVD, no actual new out-takes were used for this compilation. In fact, it is perfectly clear that whoever made the section was working directly from the Smeg Outs tape, as we’ll prove below.
