Good old Orange Mark is at it again, this time giving us a peek at the guest characters for episode 2 – Fathers and Suns. No new pictures have been released this time, but obviously the information I’m about to discuss could be considered spoilery by some, so you’ve been warned. Also, our usual spoiler policy for all the smug cunts who were at the recording applies as always.
This was always going to happen. Cultbox have posted synopses for all six episodes, after which Doug Naylor now refers to them by a very slightly altered version of their name. We’re covering this because it’s information released in relatively mainstream press, and because they’re standard Radio Times-style capsules that only give away a teasing summation of the bare bones of the plot, rather than blowing the endings. Nevertheless, be wary of spoilers before reading more, and remember that if you’ve been to an audience recording, then you may not reveal anything that you saw.
We’re currently in the midst of what can only be described as a volcanic fuckstorm of Red Dwarf X publicity, press and trailers. Right now, I shall make an attempt to collate the more exciting of the most recent droppings, including some fairly spoilery images that have been released for Trojan. So think on before you read on – there may well be spoilers ahead, but do bear in mind our spoiler policy.
SFX’s relationship with Red Dwarf has been up and down over the years, but in recent years they’ve been treating the show very well, devoting a good amount of space to preview Back To Earth (not to mention the special cover created for the show). The November edition (November? You stupid fuckers) carries a substantial four page interview with Chris, Craig and Robert and it’s really very pleasant indeed. Edited highlights follow, but I also encourage you to buy the mag when it’s released on Wednesday, if for no other reason than to keep SFX’s lawyers off my substantial arse.
Right, this is quite a biggie. The official synopsis, cast list and a spoilerific picture for episode one have surfaced over on The British Comedy Guide. As it’s proper press stuff, posted on an established and reliable site, we’re covering it. But if you want to remain completely pure for the first episode, don’t click that link! Our analysis is below the cut.
Oh Christ, here we go.
In the the first of what will no doubt be a FLOOD of reviews for following of screening of Trojan at today’s UKTV Showcase press event, Chortle’s Steve Bennett has given us his thoughts on Trojan. If that wasn’t enough Digital Spy have also provided a cache of new publicity photos for you to drool all over.
This is probably going to bite me in the arse, but I’m going to go ahead and assume we’re not getting a traditional update from Dave today in lieu of news of an EXCITING way to get your fix of trailers. WARNING: may contain tedious hoop jumping.
