    Starring Hugh Laurie, and Rebecca Front’s in it, for crying out loud, as well as the brilliant Lenora Crichlow. Of great interest, indeed….!

    The fascinating thing about this is that Iannucci has gone on record before about his distaste for Red Dwarf.

    It’ll be interesting to see what his version of a space sitcom is, and how it differs.

    There’ll be some patio doors, I imagine.

    I don’t think I ever heard about this. What did he say?

    “If you like Red Dwarf, you’ll love Hyperdrive.”

    Makes no sense why he’d diss Dwarf.

    I can’t wait to see the angry middle aged one who swears creatively, the harangued older one who doesn’t do much but gets dragged along, the naive younger one who doesn’t have a personality but usually connects the subplots at the end, and two tutting women with no funny lines to say who are just Dorothy and Deborah from Men Behaving Badly but power-dressed. With starfields behind the windows.

    What about the aging career woman with a strained marriage and worries about her femininity?

    A certain Seb Patrick went to a Q&A with Armando Iannucci, and he said he didn’t really like Red Dwarf. I’m sure he talked about it on here, but I’m buggered if I can find the thread now.
