    THE INQUISITOR’S VISITOR

    The immortal simulant is driven to despair when his obnoxious cousin Simon travels down from Dundee and insists on staying in his spare bedroom for three weeks.

    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.

    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.

    Paul Muller
    Participant

    They bashed out quite a few of them over the years, so I wouldn’t be surprised if there’s a bit of variation in detail, especially at a smaller scale. I can’t place that model – but the mounting point on the back suggests it was made for filming, rather than as a display replica.

    Paul Muller
    Participant

    Yeah, I don’t think Big Finish is necessarily the route to go – nobody needs a ten part saga centred around the Dibbley Family.

    Personally, I think Red Dwarf has always lent itself to graphic novel/comic incarnations – something along the lines of ‘Prelude to Nanarchy’ could work really well, especially with Doug’s writing and involvement.

    I kind of feel like I’d be happy with *anything* else, in the sense that we’ve already had much more than I ever expected. But I’ll also be happy enough if that’s it.

    This is of course the correct attitude. Ending on ‘Skipper’ would at least tie things up in a neat fashion, certainly a damn sight better than Ed Bye copping a knee to the bollocks.

    Whatever the likelihood of new series, I do think that a show that’s spanned thirty years, with such a rich and diverse universe of characters and stories deserves to continue and expand into new forms – whether it’s through books, comics, animation, videogames – whatever.

    I’m convinced there’s still a strong audience out there, TV or otherwise, but it’s in Doug’s hands, and after what must have been a fairly exhausting decade for him, I can understand if he wants to finally put the show to bed.

    Honestly, if anyone wants to hit me up on Twitter (@paulusmuller) and have a chat about this whole business, I’d be more than happy to engage – it takes very little to send me off on one about politics. But again, I’d rather not do it on G&T. It’s important to have a bit of headspace away from the 24/7 rolling political shitshow, some kind of hobby or activity that allows you to forget it for a moment. If you’re engaging with current affairs, especially politics, all the time – I can tell you from personal experience, it just makes you very unhappy and sends you a bit odd.

    I think it’s generally fine as long as the writing makes clear that the joke is on them, and doesn’t condone it. For much of Red Dwarf, this is the case, with a few jarring exceptions.

    This is one of my main problems with Series VIII – a lot of it feels like we’re supposed to relate to the incredibly dodgy sexual politics on a sort of ‘blokey’ level, like “Come on lads, given the chance, who wouldn’t drug a woman to make them sexually suggestible or surreptitously film them in the shower, or try and coerce them into sex via emotional blackmail…”

    It’s weird though, as the show has always had a large female audience. I suppose it’s just very much a product of the shitty pervasive lad culture of the time.

    I have a friend who’s really into a particular 90’s US TV show, which I’d never heard of prior to him introducing it to me. It’s pretty good. He’s a huge fan and it’s nice to see his reaction to me watching scenes for the first time that he knows off by heart.

    I’ve been threatening to introduce him to Red Dwarf for months. He’s only vaguely heard of the show, and I don’t think he has any idea what it’s about. But yeah, I’m wary of starting with The End, due to its overpowering greyness and slow pace (at least until the last 10 minutes). I think I’l probably end up doing a The End/Future Echoes double bill, and then maybe skip forward to Series II.

    Speaking as someone whose favourite DVD extras are the Raw Model FX reels, I’d disagree that they’re unimportant. Part of what makes RD fandom so diverse is that we’re often all appreciating it from different angles, be they concept, plot, jokes, performances – or Peter Wragg perilously balanced on a wooden plank, dangling a model spaceship around on a wire.

    That said, there’s definitely been extensive re-use of ship shots across the series. Without sitting down and making a huge list, multiple Starbug shots spring to mind (particularly in VII), as well as S1 ship passes showing up in II,III and IV, before it was replaced by the new (in my view inferior) miniature built for Series V.

    I do think if Doug could have got hold of the original S1 35mm rushes, those very first motion control passes of Red Dwarf would have fit perfectly into Series 10.

    No, they’re CG – created by Gecko Animation.

    https://vimeo.com/57215517 – They show up in this reel at approx .51 secs.

    I actually think they work OK. They’ve made the effort to model and texture something that’s similar in style to the miniatures – which definitely helps. The flares are a bit static, but otherwise, not a bad shot.

    The crew are very tired. Extremely, extremely tired.

    But was it an accident?

    Yeah, Series VII gets a lot of flack for expanding Starbug to preposterous levels (wind tunnel, landing bay, duct network etc), but there was a fair bit of that going on in Series VI as well. Graham’s illustration does an admirable job of fitting it all in and still leaving room for propulsion systems, fuel tanks etc.

    “Wouldn’t you run into intellectual property problems if you did that though? Most models are made out of Eagle Transporter kits and whatnot.”

    You could say the same thing about pretty much every vehicle in Star Wars. And Alien for that matter.

    I think an updated attempt at this could be really great. Perhaps with a few less gags.

    You could also use some snazzy 3D illustrations, or preferably, cross sections a la Graham Bleathman, who did the ones for the various Gerry Anderson shows. I would happily chew off my own arm for a copy of this Starbug illustration of his.

    My opinion is that it was good.
