    Not sure if you guys have already seen this but:

    http://dave.uktv.co.uk/shows/sitcom/red-dwarf/

    “…And, from Friday 30th January, we’ll have a weekly update on how the production is going packed with all the latest news and gossip. Oh smeg, yes.”

    Sounds promising.

    Xtra points, I think, for the indepth history details. At least Dave has some love for.. Dave.

    I never knew Ronnie Barker read for a part. :)

    And the interspecies fornication (not relating to Ronnie Barker.)? I assume they’re referring to Lister and his ‘gelf bride’, although I thought he scarpered before they, erm, did the deed. (Unlike his Last Human version who passed out after a sip of moonshine and awoke to a… treat. )

    That’s because it’s not true.

    I wonder where that one came from.

    Everyone should try the quiz, and try to spot all the horrific mistakes.

    I wonder where that one came from.

    Rob and Doug saying “we wanted someone like Ronnie Barker to play the Captain”. That’s somehow mutated into “Ronnie Barker auditioned for a part”.

    Oh, I thought Ronnie Barker being in it story some how evolved from the story about Craig Charles farting infront of him in an elevator.

    That was Ronnie Corbett.

    Ronnie Corbett farted in front of Ronnie Barker in an elevator? Not one of their classic sketches really.

    The Phantom Lift Farter.

    It’s interesting that the show’s description says Lister is ‘trapped’ aboard Red Dwarf. Fair enough, he sort of is, but I don’t think I’ve ever looked at it like that.

    I have always looked at is as trapped in deep space and he has to fight the Vidians and the Borg to get home, wait, oh no, I’m thinking of Voyager, what show is this?

    I did the quiz, and despite getting them all ‘right’ (give or take the errors mentioned before), it told me I’d got 4 out of ten. Gormless.

    Yep, got an e-mail from Dave yesterday, and have only just seen it, alerting me to the Production Diary. Officially can’t wait.

    A show better than that show, that’s for sure.

    Red Dwarf is better than [insert any show ever made apart from Red Dwarf] too.

    I think the ‘trapped’ thing is particularly relevant in the first two series. Less so later.

    Or more literal in Series VIII

    Yes… I was thinking more of the alone- ‘last man (sort of) in the universe in deep space’ thing.

    In the meantime, we’ve got the whole of Series 2, every Saturday at 9pm to help tide you over.

    Just Series 2. Series 2 every week?

    At least they know how to spell Series 2 unlike TOS.

    Yes, it says every saturday, and also says that it’s next on on wednesday 4th February…

    Excellent. I’m assuming people at Dave would be grateful for a shoestring budget…

    I did a 10 presentation on Red Dwarf, particularly the first few series and how it manages to work in the science fiction/sitcom genre 2 days ago.

    I enjoyed doing that. it wasn’t very hard.

    It’s all good, I thought it was some sort of jargon I wasn’t familliar with. Hope it went over well.

    He is Dr Carl Vincent, a professor of music. he’s forgotten more about music than I will ever remember.

    Why were you talking SciFiComedy to a forgetful professor of music?

    Because i’m doing a course in Music Production for Film and TV. So we have classes that deal with understanding the codes and conventions of film and TV. Which is what my presentation was on.

    Clear?
