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.
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!
“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.
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?
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.
