    It appears that Robert Llewellyn will appear on TWiT Live at noon PST (US), which is basically right now.

    http://live.twit.tv/

    That’s the link if you would like to tune in. Apparently, he is not online yet, but I assume he should pop in at some point in the next few minutes. I asked about it on the chat window on the site and someone said he is there in the “cottage” which I assume is Leo’s house. (He is the host.)

    Robert says they’re doing the special to open the door for another series,
    and that it’s not meant to be a final one.

    Hello David!

    Robert’s just said that Danny is a great person to spend “on the street” with. Erm, quite.

    AWESOME! I was just on LIVE with Leo and Robert. I was so nervous and still shaking from it. Unbelievable. I am glad several of you were there. I heard Tongue Tied on earlier too! Very cool.

    #83417
    John Hoare
    Participant

    Yeah, Tonguetied, whatever our differences in the past – that was a great question you asked there, which got the best thing out of Robert so far – that there’s a potential new series after the special. Fantastic.

    #83420

    That was me that asked about the rest of the cast.
    Made myself look like a nob there cos he kept putting me on hold so I couldn’t here what was being said, so I’d unmute the stickam thing and then I couldn’t here him when he took me off mute.

    hummingbird, no problem. I’m a long time fan of this site, but it’s my first time in the forum. I just had to let everyone know, because I knew the announcement by Leo seemed so informal and was worried the word wouldn’t get out. Glad to know I could help.

    Maybe I heard wrong, but I thought I heard Bobby say he was going BACK to Seattle? But he was already here Sunday & Monday. I got to ask him a question at Krytie Night and my dad asked him to do his Kochanski walk. So did I misunderstand him about going back to Seattle again?

    I can’t believe that three of you got through!
    I would have tried myself, but I just know that nerves would’ve got the better of me, and I would have been *ahem* tonguetied.

    #83434

    >Oh, shit, does this mean I have to start working on G&T again now?

    I wonder if you could record one of the repeats and post it on the site as an audio file download.

    I was shitting myself when he answered and said my name, I thought bloody hell. I thought I’d be in a queue of american fans. I kept being put on hold, so I just kept ringing, I sent a few messages saying I was a big fan of red dwarf hoping that they would pop up on the screen. Did you hear that guy who didn’t actually mean to call? He was just a friend of the previous guy.

    Would it be a little cheesy for me to say that right now I’m higher than a hippy on the third day of an open air festival?

    Plus Quarantine is being repeated on Dave as we speak.

    That was me that asked about the rest of the cast.

    Shoot. Did I ask the same question? I didn’t hear you ask that before me. I hope I didn’t ask him a question that had already been posed.

    #83444

    I was on after you…I think I may have been last. Did you ask that too?

    #83445
    Tonguetied
    Participant

    Yeah I was thinking what should I ask, should I just say I was a fan of red dwarf and talk about making do,then ask about the status of the special, but then when I got through, I just leapt in with asking about whether or not it would be the finale or could it lead onto another series. I wasn’t sure if I would get a chance to speak for longer than a minute or so.

    #83442
    David Russell

    I just asked what his relationships with Chris, Danny and Craig were like these days. I missed your question, I think. What did you ask?

    #83446
    Tonguetied
    Participant

    David did you ask about norman/hattie being involved too?

    #83447
    David Russell
    Participant

    Now I remember! You asked a different question, but a great one—whether the rest of the cast had signed on for the special.

    #83448
    hummingbird

    IMO you guys asked what we all really wanted to know.

    #83449

    Tonguetied – No, that was Smeg4Brains, right?

    #83450

    > David did you ask about norman/hattie being involved too?

    That was me.

    #83453
    hummingbird
    Participant

    It sounded as if he didn’t really know who else was involved apart from the 4 main cast members.
    He did say that he had tried to contact Doug to ask him about this sort of thing, and Doug had promised to get back to him, but he hadn’t managed to speak to him in time for the show. Or something.

    #83451
    Tonguetied
    Participant

    Ah cool, what did he actually say, my connection was cut off for a few minutes then. Robert’s response to the question of norman/hattie’s involvement I mean.

    #83452

    Well I asked if it was possible that Norman, Hattie or Chloe could be involved and he said he didn’t know but he thinks at least one of them, if not all of them, will be in the special.

    #83455
    Tonguetied
    Participant

    It would be great if Norman was definitely signed on, I can’t see why he wouldn’t. Could be nice if there was a short scene where he malfunctioned or something to explain the appearance of hattie’s version.

    #83456

    According to the article tomasaevans posted, Chloe Annett has confirmed.

    Bah I could do with Norman’s confirmation, I could give or take Chloe.

    #83466
    David Russell
    Participant

    I emailed Leo to express our thanks for having Robert on and to encourage him to keep that connection alive for future interview opportunities.

    Did anyone else see Robert’s Twitter account follower count triple from this? There is obvious interest in what is happening with Red Dwarf right now. Amazing that it is ten years down the road from Series 8, but that same excitement seems to be in the air again.

    Whatever happens next, I truly loved this experience we shared today. Much, much fun. Thanks all.

    Part of me doesn’t want them to be given a very big budget because small budgets were always a big part of red dwarf. But it would be cool to see what they can do with a big one like doctor who size.

    I read that as ‘having Iain (Ian) in stasis’ to start with before twigging the ‘I’ was an ‘l’. I was like “Eh, what?”

    It’s late. That’s my excuse.
