    Doug splicing in some specially shot cutaways of a bus interior to cover the obvious ADR re-record for Back to Earth’s 15th anniversary rerelease.

    I liked it. 

    It looked nice, the performances were all pretty solid, there was some fun, soapy RTD dialogue peppered about and some nice practical FX stuff. It was also about as subtle as a brick to the face and quite hamfisted in places, but ultimately you’d have to be a bit of a prick to object to the overall message.

    Now, how do we convince Disney to bung some of their money at Red Dwarf?

    “Ahead, groove factor five! Yeah!”

    Only a small mishearing, but it took me about twenty years to figure that one out. I always heard it as ‘Ahead, groove back to five!”, as if Holly was giving verbal dance directions to his little moving TV stand, á la Rimmer directing the skutters.

    It’s an odd line of dialogue either way, but there’s something very funny and endearing about the sheer enthusiasm with which Norm delivers it.

    That’s brilliant, thank you! God, it’s amazing what you can find on eBay.

    Here’s where I’m at at the moment – if progress continues at it’s current pace I’m confident I can have it finished at some point before the universe finally collapses into a lifeless vacuum.

    After 15 odd years, I swear I will at some point learn how to post an image on this bloody website.

    Link works for me. I tried to re-host an embed it and that doesn’t seem to work so here is just an impure link

    That’s great, cheers. Trying to put together a reasonably accurate 3D model of the thing at the moment so it’s nice to have a proper reference, as there are so few photos of the original model out there, and they’re all shite quality.

    I think the willingness of the cast and/or age is probably the main deciding factor at the moment. I get the impression Robert is (understandably) not too keen on getting encased in latex for hours on end these days. The pandemic certainly won’t have helped, either.

    I’ve been casually dipping in and out of this series, but I enjoyed this one mainly on the basis that it was set and filmed in my home town, even if it was a sort of Bizarro world version of Gloucester that isn’t covered in shuttered shop windows, bored groups of teens, and seagull shit.

    Watched the first episode last night. It’s a weird one, the whole thing felt a bit stilted and artificial. Hugh Laurie was great though, and there were a couple of very funny moments. Hopefully it’ll pick up a bit as it goes on.

    Outland is what I imagine Red Dwarf might have looked like if it had been produced as a modestly budgeted film rather than a low budget sitcom.

    It’s also worth watching for the brief but hilarious performance of Sean Connery’s onscreen son, in what is presumably supposed to be a poignant moment.

    I’m not getting drawn into a Star Wars discussion, but as regards Silent Running, it’s one of my favourite films. It’s clearly a big influence on early Red Dwarf, both in its themes and subject and in terms of FX and production design. Along with Outland, I feel like it would slot very comfortably into the RD ‘universe’.

    “Personally I prefer partnership Whist” – I understand the point of it, but it’s such an obscure activity to reference. They could have gone with backgammon or tiddlywinks, or elected for an obvious wanking gag and chosen Solitaire.

    I guess it’s because I watched most of Red Dwarf as a ten year old, so jokes based around 18th century card games were always going to fly over my head. For a long time, I thought it was some kind of dance.
