    Ian, Jo and I will be in this delightful place from around 3, before heading the studios for the recording. If you’re going, it would be smashing to see you there for pre-event excitement.

    (We have The Bull Inn as a backup, just in case The Barley Mow is SHIT, but we’ll post here if there any change of plan.)

    Fuck me, it’s come round so quickly. First the vague announcements, then Doug’s cryptic tweets, then the tickets went online. Even though we’re gettign tweets and info abotu the show. I’m finding it very difficult to completely comprehend that it IS actually happening, it’s not just hearsay, it’s not just rumour, it’s absolute FACT.

    Looking forward to hearing your reactions…

    Huge excitement now that it’s only a matter of hours away. It’s only marred by having just finding out that Christopher Hitchens has died. What a strange mix of elation and sadness today is turning out to be.

    I agree Ori, bloody taxis – at least they could indicate on their cars that they are a taxi. The only thing that gave the driver away that he was a cabbie was the bluetooth earpiece in his ear :)

    I think I could have been a little better, but the studio was quite warm and dry, my throat was quite dry and sore. Plus I can’t carry a tune to save my own life lol

    I loved the guy pretending to play the piano and going “doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo” – Craig Charles in the background was pissing himself, and even the whole crew stopped what they were doing to look at him lol. Still, all good fun, I’m glad I was there, and I am glad to meet some other Red Dwarf fans from other parts of the country – it was a great night out :)

    I am! Me and my sister. We’ll be there sometime between 4 and half past, so make your escape then.

    Semi-serious note: I’m going to need to eat, what with needing to do my insulin and whatnot. I normally do that between 5 and 6, and obviously, I’m gonna have to do it a bit earlier. Do the pub do decent food, or am I better off bringing some sandwiches?

    #114303

    Ah, just read Kris’s post re food. (In my defence, I started writing that last post an hour ago. Then I got sidetracked, and, well.)

    So, is there somewhere decent to eat in the area? Or am I bringing my A-Team lunchbox?

    I’m off work on Friday and have nothing on, so in light of Doug tweeting about spares again last week i’m half tempted to take a punt again. If I do then i’ll most likely see you in the pub at some point I imagine.

    There was a chippie at the end of the road, but I didn’t have any and so can’t testify as to the quality.

    Chippy. Hmm. Will it be open at 4pm-ish?

    #114308
    Jo
    Participant

    The chippie is pretty good but they shut about 2-2:30 and not sure what time they open for the evening… I’d suggest bringing something (or picking something up on the high street next to the station) just in case.

    #114309
    Kris Carter
    Participant

    Or buy some crisps and a tasty beverage in the audience holding pen.

    Or drive around until you find a Pizza Hut, like wot we did last week. Unfortunately the lingering stench of the dog shite one of my friends had stepped in (back in Cardiff!!! Talk about tracking a smell along!) meant that no-one’s appetite was particularly good at that stage. Bleurgh.

    The chips are amazing. They are open in the afternoon, as I think I was there about 5pm on the first recording date. They’re open until about 11pm.

    I’ll see you all in the holding area this Friday, as I’ve got to wait for my sister to finish work and so will only be getting to the studios at the last minute. I’ve got the afternoon off on the 27th, though, so will hopefully be there at the earliest possible.

    I kinda felt bad for arriving so late at The Mow on 23rd Dec. Arriving at 4:45pm after not realising how far we were from the pub to start with. Didn’t give us much time to chat beforehand.

    Then I was sorting out my old text messages the other day and found one from Cappsy saying “We’re heading off at around 4:45”. Now I could have sworn at the time that the message had said they were going at 5:00pm which is why I ordered another pint when we arrived at 4:45…I feel guilty about ordering that last pint now as well as arriving late now…

    that is pretty good, i assume they are still using the back entrance as a couple of weeks back i read they could go through the front. i believe that was a one off due to them filming out the back ?

    Bastards!! When me and Jakey went, we were the only ones at The Anchor! There was me expecting late night drinking at the bar discussing the filming with fellow dwarfers, and you’re all going this week!

    The taxi was about £4 I think (certainly not a lot…). Jake paid and I just remembered. I never offered to give him my share. Whoops!! It was local one that a passer by could remember the number of. But it had no taxi badges or taxi radio or meter or anything. In fact, I think we may just have hijacked some old bugger out for a drive in his car!!|

    As for the walk, I would say 15 minutes maybe pushing it. Possible, but at a very brisk walk that..

    Be sure to ask the manager about Craig Charles Red Dwarf movie he’s filming at Shepperton!

    It’s Tom Price again. Shame Ray can’t do the last episode, because he really has been tremendous and feels like such a big and important part of the recordings by now. I thought Tom was good on the 16th December, though, so it ain’t all bad.
