    INT. John’s Living Room. Night.

    Popular TV channel Dave is on the telly. John is at the computer. Red Dwarf music comes on.

    JOHN: I’ll tell you what, I bet I can tell you what episode of Dwarf this is just from listening to the very start of it.

    TANYA: OK.

    JOHN: [before title music has finished] Sounds like Series VI…

    TANYA: Yes…

    The merest hint of engine noise from the start of the episode sounds.

    JOHN: Psirens!

    TANYA: …Yes.

    I repeat: I am a complete and utter fucking twat.

    What I actually want to know is whether the VI bit was just an incredibly lucky guess, or whether my brain did genuinely detect anything vaguely different. I was thinking V or VI, and then VI just suddenly clicked.

    Oh, and whilst we’re on the subject of Psirens – and I stress I didn’t see this tonight! – the opening shot of the episode is one of my favourite model shots ever. And it’s also one of my favourite stage directions ever, in Primordial Soup:

    Starfield. We pan to reveal enormous sun. After a pause, Starbug beetles across the disk of the sun.

    I *love* the “beetles” bit.

    Series V has “urrrrrrrrr” with Red Dwarf flying at the beginning of the titles.
    Series VI has “neeeooowwm” with Starbug flying at the beginning of the titles.

    It would have been better if John had been at his sloping architect’s desk under the pink glow of his study lamp.

    I can tell which episode it will be purely from the fragrance that the television emits.

    Ha, I don’t even have to watch it! I can tell which episode it is just by looking at the TV listings!

    I can do by simply tasting the radio waves.

    Or electric/light signals if we’re talking broadband.

    Mmmmm. Tasty signals. Some of the other junk turns my stomach though.
