    Hey guys,

    Right, I’m gonna embark on a bit of a project here, I want to make a banner for every episode of Red Dwarf complete with Original Broadcast dates and obviously the episode title. The idea being that the banner will be a chronological sort of ‘timeline’ or melting pot that contains things which are indicative of that particular episode. However, I could do with a consensus…

    I did have a go at this a LONG while back but kinda stopped, primarily because opinions of what’s important in a given episode varies from person to person. So we thought it would be an idea to get YOU peeps involved and get your feedback as to what you think would encapsulate each episode in a banner.

    Here’s what I did for ‘The End’

    I reckon we can do better than that…

    For example: What pops into your head when you think of ‘Future Echoes‘?
    Is it a specific scene?
    Is it a specific shot which you find important, either emotionally, contexually or visually?
    Is it a specific screenshot that you could actually suggest for the banner?
    It can even be a good looking model shot.
    It could even involve things which aren’t easily noticeable on screen but you guys may want in there, which can be re-created as close as possible, things like stuff seen in the monitors, (like what we’ve got in the Wallpapers section) Things like: One of the Series 6 banners should have a wireframe Starbug in there somewhere; Rimmer’s ‘alien’ language chart from Waiting for God; books and other items that may be referenced but we don’t see could be created, either by me or by you guys if you feel so inclined!

    Stuff which can’t fit/doesn’t fit in the banners, may end up as extra stuff in ‘Series Specific’ wallpapers. So all considerations, comments, suggestions and submissions will be most welcome. I will collate all of these things when I’ve got enough ‘buzzwords’ images, thoughts and other such stuff to work from.

    I think the best way to do this would be to name the episode/Series first and then your given ‘bit’. You can give me just the odd one or two that come into your head, or run through the whole lot and fire a shitload of ideas at me. I don’t mind.

    Fire away!


    I think of the Double Rimmer scene. There’s a photo/screencap with Lister stood at the side of Rimmer looking confused while he’s looking elsewhere. That’d be a good pic to include.

    Seb Patrick

    I’ll have a go at Thanks for the Memory given that it’s my “pet” episode: the wide shot of them partying on the planetoid, Rimmer with the fried egg sandwich, the “Someone to Watch Over Me” dream, the hologram simulation suite, Rimmer-as-Lister with Lise, the guys in spacesuits with the gravestones.

    Incidentally, I’d probably make the G&T text a bit bigger on them…


    The shot of Lister shaving pops into my head for Future Echoes. The smegazine version :S

    (I saw the comic adaptation before I ever saw the episode.)

    That for Future Echoes along with Old Lister on the bed, and the Jim and Bexley photo. I guess “My tooth! My tooth! I think I lost my tooth!” and Lister shaving too.


    I read the smegazine version first as well. Tee hee.


    I would lose the transmission date.

    I should really bear in mind, that I intend to re-do‘The End’ so if you have any fresh ideas for that, then please, so suggest them. Great suggestions so far. keep em coming!

    I would lose the transmission date.


    Jonathan Capps

    I *wouldn’t* lose the transmission date. I think it’s GOOD.

    Ben Paddon

    I’d perhaps make it a bit smaller, though. And I’d have the G&T logo at the bottom rather than the top.

    Pete Part Three

    Future Echoes : The Rimmer wigs, Old Lister.

    Think you should make use of this at some point, if only because it seems to be so ubiquitous : http://forbiddenplanet.co.uk/blog/wp-content/uploads/2009/01/Red%20Dwarf%20returns%20Back%20to%20Earth.jpg


    I like the transmission date, though perhaps it’s a little long. Maybe change the format to numbers?

    Danny Stephenson

    The whole idea of the banners is meant to be a celebration of the episodes. I’d LIKE to keep the placement of the text in a similar place each time. I’ll try a few more ideas and see what works. Shortening the date seems like a good plan. Considering the shorthand of DD/MM/YY maybe vertically up the side? Or something.

    The original idea was to just have the screenshots work from left to right and have just 5 or 6 events along the line, but I want this to more of montage of images and ideas and evoke the episode.


    My favourite episode is Confidence and Paranoia. I think the screenshots should include Lister….and then Rimmer…..and then Cat….and then……Paranoia and Confidence ending on “in space, nobody can hear you cha-cha-cha”….

    erm…..I’m not really helping much, am I?

    ….and when this banner comes up, the indlin’ song should play


    …and Stabb’im. Gotta have Stabb’im!!


    ….and the Mayor of Warsaw and a fish.

    Maybe the Cat shot should be the one where he thinks he’s found sex but it’s a monkey!


    > I should really bear in mind, that I intend to re-do’The End’

    Fair enough but definitely keep the Lister-in-stasis shot and the last one with the 3 of them.

    I think there should be a single quote from each episode (e.g. for The End, ‘Look out, Earth, the slime’s comin home!’). IMO that would be way better than the transmission date.


    “Parallel Universe” should almost certainly include the Cat staring almost perfectly down the barrel of the camera, the respective looks on Arnold and Arlene’s faces as the latter grabs the former’s behind; and maybe, if you can, Dave and Deb sharing a bed. Oh, and also a lipstick-covered Holly with Hilly, and little skutters.


    Marooned – A shot of Hattie, Starbug crashing in the snow, Lister with the forkfull of dog food, Rimmer’s disgusted expression afterwards, Lister making the guitar stencil on the chest, Rimmer saluting the burning of the soldiers and the last shot of Rimmer looking through the guitar shaped hole.

    Backwards – the scroll-up – ‘RED DWARF III – THE SAGA CONTINUUMS’

    Nick R

    Listening to your Backwards commentary was a good chance to take some snapshots from that episode.

    What do you think of this set of images? Other than that final shot of the Cat (which is also the one Wikipedia uses in its infobox for this episode), I’ve gone for frames that are representative of the episode but don’t feature the main characters. Note the Four R’s: Reagan, Rob, Rabbit, and Rampant Woman. (Gotta have that rabbit in there!)

    View post on imgur.com

    I also flipped them horizontally and arranged them in reverse chronological order. So they’re BACKWARDS!


    The Last Day – Jim Reaper, Mechanoid Owners Manual ‘FOR HUMAN EYES ONLY’, Marilyn droid, pissed Holly with tiara on wonky, Lister with traffic cone, Holly with hangover, Hudzen holding up two halves of brick

    Danny Stephenson

    I’m going to collate all of these either today or tomorrow, into a post along with my suggestions for things we should have in the banners.

    Nick: Good work on the images there’s definetely a few of those (or variations of them).

    Should the entire banner be reversed for ‘Backwards’ I Think it’s only sensible :)

    Ian Symes

    I’ve always had a problem with that element of Backwards. It’s only time that’s reversed, not *everything*. The menu should say “menu”, not “unem”.


    But then Lister saying Nodnol wouldn’t work!


    It still makes more sense than ‘Day of the (fucking) Moon’.


    Oh fuck off, Day of the Moon was awesome! You have 11 episodes before you can legitimately say that things didn’t make sense. It was an opener, not a closer!


    Erm sorry about the “fuck off”… I’m just very passionate about things I like. Or something like that. Not obsessive. Just passionate…

    Jonathan Capps

    It’s ok, telling performingmonkey to fuck off is somewhat of a tradition.


    Off you fuck.

    Pete Part Three

    It’s kind of a rule here. You can rip the piss out of Red Dwarf, but don’t you dare speak ill of Doctor Who.

    Danny Stephenson

    You CAN speak ill of Dr Who, just don’t be wrong about it [/Trollface]


    Well…those who still think Moffat is an infallible god, when a short walk along Real Street promptly reveals him to be cowering upon his paper throne wearing no clothes, should think twice before slagging off Rob and Doug (either/or)!

    Ben Paddon

    At some point, you’re going to have to start making sense, Monk.

    Nanarchy: Lister’s fake arm.

    Series VIII
    Back In The Red Part 1: Recreated series 1/2 bunk room with Rimmer standing over Lister (around the “You hope” line).
    On the panel fighting their case (this might be part 2, I don’t remember what happens when so well in these episodes)
    Line up (Again this might be from 2 or 3)

    Back To Earth Part 2: In the comic book shop all lined up (Back on Red Dwarf!… THAT’S STAR TREK!), “bunk room” with Rimmer and Lister.
    Back To Earth Part 3: Lister at typewriter looking ecstatic.

    Some production stills also pop to mind for some episodes such as Lister and Caroline Carmen, the BTR cockpit shot, Ace Rimmer, future Kryten from OOT.

    The current festive banner variants have reminded me of this thread. I’d still like to see these episode-specific banners added to the site, perhaps in time for the new series’ broadcast. Have you had chance to make any more, Danny?


    Gotta love seeing the festive banners again. It’s the geek equivilent of the Coca-Cola Christmas advert…

    I’m still collating images for the banners. I want a plethora of stuff before I start jamming them together. May release them on a series by series basis, but that’s subject to how much time we have what with RDX at al happening :)

    You’ve given me an idea for next years’ banners. Cheers!

    G&T 61 Banner Project. :-)

    Yes, as it will be known. I may alter the thread title to fit purpose…

    One of the main reasons I haven’t started putting these together, is that the site is currently undergoing a re-design and the header sizes are/could/probably will be changing, so it’s not worth making anything that is final when I may have to rejig the things to fit the new styles of header.

    Now you know…


    Now we know.. Now we know… NOW WE KNOW! NOW WE KNOW!!!

    Will the new banners be filmed at Shepperton? Also, CGI or Models?

    Danny Stephenson

    A mixture of the two. Also our banners will be shown in front of an audience. Tickets available soon.


    Will Holly be in them?

    Ben Paddon

    Will the banners be available outside of the UK?

    Nick R

    I’m skeptical. The banners have been crap since the co-banner-creator left in 1993.

    Kris Carter

    Can we expect the original banners to be remastered?

    Danny Stephenson

    Actually. Yes.

    Tarka Dal

    Si, can you and Danny put your heads together so the bullet can go down the line.

    Danny Stephenson

    Wrong thread?

    Tarka Dal

    No. Wrong answer ;-)

    I love you Danny. Almost as much as I love Cappsy and that’s a motherload of milky manlove, but remastered *gulp*

    Kris Carter

    I can’t wait to see the film effect and the CGI Skutters!

    Danny Stephenson

    you may have noticed that there is a new logo on the christmas banners. What i mean by remastered isthat i intend to update the old banners with the new logo.


    I wish Karl hadn’t have used the word *gulp* after using the words “…motherload of milky manlove”.

    Tarka Dal

    Blame Cappsy, the big seksy lion k ing.


    I don’t know what reminded me of this old thread but I wondered if this is still going to happen?

    Danny Stephenson

    Yes, it is. There is a certain anniversary of a certain show coming up, so we’re hoping to release them around then. Seems fitting as a celebration of Dwarf in general.

    It’s on going though.


    Are we keeping all of the current ones though? Or should I be downloading some of my faves now in case they go into retirement?


    Love the idea but hope these won’t be the only banners on rotation.

    I’d love to see some of the better fan-art featured up there for example.

    You know where my DeviantArt page is. ;)


    Actually no I don’t, but I’m aware of your talents si… and apparently you can draw too!

    Danny Stephenson

    I wonder if we should display all the banners of note in a tucked away section of the site like the Google Doodles…

    That’s actually a cracking idea.

    I thought it would have been really self indulgent for me to do this, but then I realised I’m not responsible for all the ideas of the banners.
    Some are going to be more relevant to certain eras and will go ‘out of date’ like the BTE paparazzi shot stuff, that kind of thing. SO it’d be nice to have somwehere for them to go, and it’s an interesting timeline of G&T’s past.

    Because the site’s being redesigned, the banner style is going to shift slightly too, and because i’m an idiot I didn’t make the banners in any larger resolution than what we have, so I’d have to make them all again in theory. So the style and possibly the logo may change, still working on that.

    In short the 55 (61) Banner project will happen, eventually


    I think it’d be a shame for the G&T font to change. There’s something comfortably familiar about it.
    Having said that, though, I guess it’d be the same as looking at those headers with the old G&T logos. Change is inevitable.
    I think it’s kind of odd that G&T have never had the elipse as part of the logo. For an RD site, I don’t know whether that’s something to be applauded, or just stupidity. ;)

    > I don’t know whether that’s something to be applauded, or just stupidity. ;)

    I think this sums up the site as a whole quite well!


    “Something to be applauded, or just stupidity.” One for the recommendations. ;)

    Danny Stephenson

    The logo transition from 2D to 3D was basically me getting giddy with 3DSMax. I also did it to make me think more about design and colour schemes and things like that, adding a dimension makes it easier for things to look ‘out of place’? I like to push myself.


    The vectored 3D logo I did for BTL was supposed to look like the 80’s Computer and Video Games logo, but literally nobody picked up on that which I was mildly gutted about haha


    fuck me sideways, this thread is huge.

    fuck me sideways, this thread is huge.

    In fairness it needs to be longer. MORE SUGGESTIONS PLEASE. Either Series Specific or episode specific things that you reckon are indicative of said Series or episode.


    I keep thinking of ones, only to find they’re either already on your list

    Or NoFro’s, which is immediately following.



    Cool, I just got this particular one for the first time!


    John Hoare

    Cool, I just got this particular one for the first time!


    Oooh, that’s one of mine! I used to do them before Danny started working his magic. That’s one of my favourites I did too.


    Amazing that I’ve been here a year and a half and never saw that one until today. Do you recall any urls of your other ones?

    Jonathan Capps

    Oooh, that’s one of mine! I used to do them before Danny started working his magic. That’s one of my favourites I did too.

    There are a tonne from that era that were all excellent. I need to include more, especially since the logo is what the current one is entirely based on.


    So, approaching 73 episodes (and bumping up this thread up a few notches), I’ve seen the series XI headers this week, and I expect we’ll see more in the next couple of months, and series XII next year. How many banners do you actually have now?

    Ian Symes

    Oooh, about 140. There will indeed be more to come.

    I’d completely forgotten about this little project. As it happens, I think we do now have at least one for each episode, quite by accident. I had a slightly crazy afternoon a while back when I made an absolute shitload of them, and for that I used all the screengrabs I took for the Complete Guide, along with whatever other Dwarf-related pics I had on my hard drive from whatever articles I’ve written on this particular laptop.


    I’ve been looking over the past couple of days. I’ve found 136. And I know there’s at least one more.

    Ian Symes

    Ah, so that’s what those previously inexplicable spikes in our stats were – Bromley hitting F5 for an hour at a time.

    Jonathan Capps

    If we introduced ads, he’d make us millions.


    An hour at a time? I can spend about twenty minutes seeing where Random takes me. Agonising over whether to leave a comment and bump a six year old article up.
