    Don’t know where to post this since it covers Death in Paradise and the AA ad and XIII so will just stick it here.


    “Filming on Red Dwarf XIII will be taking place between November and December this year”



    I thought your headline suggested he was being interviewed by a train.

    Either way. All aboard the hype train!

    Chooo Choooo!



    That seems way too specific to be nothing.



    It’s great to read he’s still massively fond of the Series



    I had assumed Nov/Dec would be when they record, if it is “later this year”. That’s when other series have filmed in the Dave era so makes sense to do it then. Presumably the studios are cheaper or something.


    International Debris

    That’s the third time in the last week we’ve had a quote about it being filmed at the end of the year.



    New Red Dwarf airing in four different decades then?



    Well it’s already done that with the 80s, 90s, 2000s and 2010s. The 2020s would be the fifth decade.



    I never claimed to be any good at math or basic comprehension for that matter.



    I read this with real optimism. Maybe they are not going to have a studio audience, that would explain how everything is a bit “quiet” i know the team prefer to have one, but the logistics must be a lot more hassle. Plus i think in the last two series it was a bit “hammy” due to the actors playing to the audience.
    Either way i cant wait. Wonder what will come first, New series or my replacement blu ray discs!

    Touched upon previously but they’ve now quoted Craig as saying: “Filming is going to commence in November through to the December and that’s all we can say really.”

    “We can also expect to see some guest characters and perhaps some canoes from famous faces.”


    In other news I’m finally starting to believe XIII is a thing (yeah shut up), and that it’s been kept on the downlow because its announcement, and the media campaign around it, is part of their deal with AA. This way there ends up being a plug for the AA in all the articles. And we don’t know what the plan is for the second TV ad yet.

    This co-promotion deal and plan seems to be at the heart of *everything* that’s been weird, suspicious, ominous and unfathomable about the show and the radio silence around it over the past year. All I can say is hey – the truth genuinely was less likely than the ‘Movie all over again’ fuckup I would have bet hard cash on.




    It will be nice to have proper confirmation though.



    Well DJ isn’t until next year, so they aren’t waiting to announce it then if they’re gonna be filming Nov & Dec.

    If they are filming then and there’s going to be an audience, shouldn’t tickets be going up soon for it? Unless of course part of the deal for XIII is no audience so they can use the money elsewhere and maybe expand the sets etc. Maybe a full size midsection for Starbug or more corridors/rooms on the ship?



    It’s for the canoes.


    Stephen Abootman

    Do UKTV still do their ‘UKTV Live’ thing? Think that used to be around September time so that would be one possibility for an announcement if so.


    International Debris

    Yeah, it’s still four months before filming, so I reckon tickets will be along in due time. Given just how happy they’ve been to have the audience back, with Doug saying it’s a big part of the show, I’d be very surprised if there wasn’t one.


    Stephen Abootman

    >perhaps some canoes from famous faces

    Will they be using matter paddles?


    Ian Symes

    G&T Admin

    I hadn’t spotted the canoes thing before. That’s amazing.



    “Well DJ isn’t until next year, so they aren’t waiting to announce it then if they’re gonna be filming Nov & Dec.

    GNP have nothing to do with the organisation of DJ, announcements in the past have purely been lucky timing.

    Part 3 of the Express’ “Get a cast member to talk about something they used to be in, the AA ad and XIII” series of interviews: https://www.express.co.uk/showbiz/tv-radio/1152739/Coronation-Street-Lloyd-Mullaney-return-Craig-Charles-soap-ITV



    John Darwin confirmed to guest star in XIII



    My theory is that the AA will pay into the budget of Series XIII as part of the advertising deal. They get to use a pop culture staple to advertise themselves, and Dwarf gets money to be produced.
