When a piece of news a) comes from the overexcited mouth of Danny John-Jules and b) is then reported earnestly by the reputable website Digital Spy, then you know to take everything you read with ALL THE SALT IN THE ENTIRE WORLD, but we’ve not posted anything new in a few days, so what the hell. Danny has mentioned (apparently directly to Digital Spy) that Doug is writing outlines for series XI. Or possibly entire scripts, he’s not really clear on that point.
…and indeed the deleted scenes, smeg ups and anything else relating to the Red Dwarf X Bluray/DVD release. It’s in the shops from Monday, but those of you who were able to pre-order from reputable online retailers should have had them shoved up your letterbox at some point today.
Our full and massive review will be appearing within the next couple of days, but in the meantime, you can use this thread as a place to dump your thoughts. Be warned, though – if you’ve not pre-ordered, or you’re an American or something daft like that, this will contain spoilers for the massive documentary. We’ve seen it. It is good.
You know how we always post front page news stories about every little project a member of the Red Dwarf cast is involved in? And how we always talk in enthusiastic detail about forthcoming sci-fi/comedy shows that claim to be influenced by Dwarf? Well, we just wanted to let you all know about A Brief History of Time Travel – a forthcoming audio sitcom series that stars Robert Llewellyn as The Narrator.
Yes, TOS have updated with details of what we’re going to be getting in our letterboxes on or around November 19th (or not if you didn’t pre-order them, you lazy bastards)…
The menus look amazing, obviously, as we’ve come to expect, but of particular note is the lack of episode commentaries, galleries or Goodall’s isolated music cues which is quite a shame, but on the other hand we do have ‘We’re Smegged’, Nathan Cubitt’s near 2-hour behemoth documentary “with teeth” on the making of the series, so we can’t complain really.
Yes, it’s the last of these weekly posts that start with the words “Let’s Talk About”. Possibly ever, but hopefully only for a couple of years or so. Tonight, it’s time to talk about the final episode of Red Dwarf X, ominously entitled The Beginning. We know that bits of it were based one of the movie scripts, that it contains a big gun-toting bastard with a moustache, and it’s been suggested that we should make sure we keep watching after the end credits. This is EXCITING. What’s more exciting, however, is the prospect of us not doing any more live Dwarfcasts of a Thursday night. Sadly for you, we’ll be live from 10pm tonight, and the link will be posted on here and on Twitter at around 9:40pm. As it’s the last one, I’m sure you’ll all have plenty to say, so post comments here, or tweet us @ganymedetitan, if you don’t want to miss out on the final opportunity to have us to ingest your points.
It’s nice when a composer of a TV show releases varying arrangements of their themes. What’s that? Howard Goodall’s done exactly that? Well, bugger me so he has!
Yes, Howard “he’s just so bloody” Goodall has released piano arrangements of his own music from Dwarf on iTunes, namely the ‘Main Theme’ and ‘Tongue Tied’ which you can download for the modest price of 79p each.
It’s the bottle episode of the bottle series. Only half of it was shot in front of the audience, presumably because the bloody thing wasn’t written yet. Even those who were at the recording have very little concept of what they’re going to see on their telly tonight – Dave, 9:00pm, obviously. Please use this thread to deposit all your thoughts on the episode; we might well read some out on tonight’s LIVE Instant Reaction Dwarfcast. We have a full compliment of G&Ters, all gathered in one place, for the first and only time this series. The show starts at 10:00pm, and we’ll be posting the link here and on Twitter soon after Dear Dave finishes at 9:40pm.
While you’re counting down the minutes to Dwarf time, why not reacquaint yourself with Kris Carter’s non-spoilery set report? And don’t go talking to any other Red Dwarf fansites. I heard what happened between you and Gazpacho Soup…
Right everyone, it’s once again time to SIT THE FUCK DOWN and make the necessary preparations for another night of new Red Dwarf. This week we’ll be watching, entranced, as Entangled makes it première on Dave or Dave HD (whatever’s your poison) at 9.00pm. This episode is going to be a fun filled extravaganza, I’m sure you’ll agree.
Jesus Christ, it’s new Red Dwarf night! Series X Episode 3, Lemons, premieres on Dave and Dave HD, tonight at 9:oopm. Please splatter this thread with your reactions and opinions. We’ll be selecting some choice ones to read out on tonight’s LIVE instant reaction Dwarfcast. The show will start at 10:00pm, and the link will appear right here, and on our Twitter page, just after the episode finishes on Dave. It’s well worth following us on there, just in case our server decides to fall over again.
While you’re waiting for Christ to appear, why not have another read of our set report from the audience recording night. And if that’s not enough, why not listen to the neckbearded tones of our very own Jonathan Capps, polluting the Red Dwarf Introcast’s analysis of Backwards? Do both of these things, then report back here immediately after Lemons. DO IT.
One again Seb Patrick has emerged from beneath his blanket of unsold 2008 calendars to launch forth glorious, glorious NEWS. This week: the absolutely gorgeous reversible DVD cover. (Warning, there’s a minor episode 3 spoiler after the jump, but nothing you don’t already know from the trailer).
