    OK, not sure if this had ever been asked, but I’m trying to nail down the correct spelling of the species Lister claims to be while twarting the simulants in ‘Gunmen’. Here’s the stats that I could find:

    Spelled “Vindaloovians”:
    The DVD captions
    several news articles on the official site and G&T
    the roleplaying game
    about 75% of the internet

    Spelled “Vindalooians”
    Son of Soup (the script book)
    about 25% of the internet
    Plus, it kind of sounds like Lister pronounces it this way, without the ‘v’.

    What’s everyones opinion on this?

    I’m impressed that you managed to poll about 100% of the internet.

    It sounds more like Vindalooians to me.

    About 75% of us think Vindaloovians, about 25% of us think Vindalooians.

    I did a poll of my desk and 100% aren’t bothered, but now all want a curry.

    Quite the literal bunch, aren’t ya… =) Let’s just say a lot more hits came up on Google with it spelled with a ‘v’….

    Anyway, A friend of mine pointed out the Chapter title on the DVD also says “Vindaloovians” so I guess I’ll go with that, and just assume nobody actually proofreads official Red Dwarf books. Thanks for playing!

    Personally, I’m more of a Madras kinda guy anyway.

    I wonder….Madrassivan or Madrassian?

    You say that as if you don’t believe I have a very good reason for asking…. ;)

    Perish the thought.
