Promotion Prospects

All three of the DVDs released so far have been promoted by giving away a free disc through a popular publication. Strangely, both of these free discs have been released after the actual DVD itself, and, not so strangely, both have featured a popular episode and a sneak preview of some of the extra features. […]

Promotion Prospects – Series II

The Series II promo was free when you bought the Daily Mirror on Wednesday April 30th 2003, over two and half months since the DVD itself was released. It was part of a week-long promotion, which involved the Mirror, Woolworths and the BBC, in which a promo of a classic show was given away each […]

Cast Commentary Corrections

“We’ve probably already been corrected a billion times by people watching this, which is fair enough.” – Chris Barrie As part of our ongoing mission to be as geeky and obsessive as possible about a light-hearted sit-com, this page proves that the cast of Red Dwarf are utter fools who know less about the show […]

The Lost Episodes

With the release of the DVDs, fans finally got to see new Dwarf for the first time in three and a half years – deleted scenes. But whilst such scenes are shot, but cut during editing, some scenes are written, but never shot – such as the double Rimmer scene in Me², where both Rimmers […]

Re-Mastered

Well hello there. I’ve been called upon by Mr. Capps (White Hole top guy, best mate, taxi service and occasional dancing partner) to write a piece about why I like the remastered episodes more than the originals.

Drunk Featurette

When the Series I DVD was released all those weeks ago, nothing divided the fans opinions as much as the Drunk featurette.
