The DVD also shows temporary artwork which is just basically the promo shot with “The Entire Eleventh Series” added at the bottom. I know it is likely to change but might give us an idea of what it’ll look like.
I hope the cover is reversible and it matches the others, the spine logo is finished so the IX, X and XI (and presumably XII) covers will just be different colour continuations of what’s on the VIII/X spines with no extra logo to fit on, unless a small one is panned of RD itself or Starbug but I doubt it. I even hope the logo is the new/old version if it does appear on any reversible cover.
“I’m pretty sure we hadn’t seen “leaving the Dwarfers for a younger crew” before.”
I’ve certainly read that description before. The version from the Dave website reads –
“Kryten has a mid-life crisis and changes his body cover from Mech grey to Ferrari red. The posse try and show him how much he’s achieved in life by taking him to visit a mechanoid from his old fleet.”
But I have definitely read the “Kryten has a mid-life crisis and considers leaving Red Dwarf for a younger crew” synopsis before.
Commentary podcasts would be good, as long as they include Doug commentaries. The cast ones are entertaining enough for a single listen, but Doug’s director’s commentary was my favourite thing about the whole of BTE.
