    I mentioned a couple of months ago that I’d like to see some new merchandise (http://www.ganymede.tv/forums/topic/hopes-dreams-predictions-and-fears-rd-xi-and-xii-speculation/#post-212927/), during this busy Dwarfy period, and especially in the run-up to the thirtieth anniversary.

    I’m currently rereading The Man In The Rubber Mask, and was thinking that a big Dwarf history type book would be lovely. You know, like the Doctor Who – The Legend book that came out for the 40th anniversary, or The Pythons autobiography from the other year.
    An ‘autobiography’ would be great. Or a combination of both; a history and ‘in their own words’ in one.
    A Dwarfobiography. New input from everyone involved , plus a potted history. Get Ellard or even Seb to do it…
    I’d buy it.

    Or how about another G&T book? I might buy that as well.

    I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again. The Movie: The Book

    #213484

    Yeah I think it’s fair to assume the movie isn’t happening, a scriptbook would be lovely.

    Absolutely the Movie scriptbook. Not every draft, as there were loads, but maybe the 3 of the most different versions, plus concept art, promo posters, behind the scenes pics, interviews with Ed, Doug and the Cast. I know the read-thru’s were recorded, maybe a link or an MP3 of thoe would be amazeballs…

    I’d far more interested in an Unmaking of book than a script, personally.

    A novel by Rob, please.

    Yes. Novel. Rob or Doug.

    Something involving Rob and Doug, ideally. You know, together. And Ed. Like on Six of the Best.

    New novels by Rob and Doug.

    Series VIII style script book for every series. You could split the show into three series blocks and have four books.

    Docudrama charting the birth of Red Dwarf.

    Throwing the casting over to you guys…

    No reason why Philip Labey can’t play young Chris Barrie, he did a pretty good job in The Beginning.

    Oh, that’s boring. We don’t want someone good, we want somebody wildly unsuitable. Ross Kemp as Norman Lovett, or something.

    Bill Bailey as Craig Charles
    Mark Heap as Chris Barrie
    Dizzee Rascal as Danny John-Jules
    Tom Jones as Robert Llewellyn
    Lenny Henry as Norman Lovett
    Chris Barrie as Rob Grant
    Seb Patrick as Doug Naylor
    Chris Barrie as Paul Jackson
    Chris Barrie as Audience Member #36
    Chris Barrie as Craig Charles (age 11)
    Chris Barrie as Ben Elton
    Chris Barrie as the Ghost of Kenneth Williams

    I’d say that’s unsuitable enough.

    That’s more like it.

    Seb Patrick as Doug Naylor

    Inspired.

    I think it would be great opportunity to showcase the more diverse nature of today’s British acting talent:

    How about:

    Lister: Benedict Cumberbatch
    Rimmer: Eddie Redmayne
    Kryten: Damian Lewis
    Cat: Tom Hiddleston

    Series VIII style script book for every series. You could split the show into three series blocks and have four books.

    I really want this…

    #213510

    Replacing VIII with the movie, I’m guessing.

    I’d prefer Rob Newman to play Ben Elton. And he can play the presenter of Rapido because I remembered that sketch as I typed this.

    Idris Elba as Dangerous Dan McGrew anyone?

    Idris Elba as Dangerous Dan McGrew anyone?

    Only if we have Anton Du Beke as The Riviera Kid .

    Anton Du Beke wasn’t someone I knew by name so I looked him up, thinking he might be in the Dark Tower movie.
    I was wrong in that assumption.
