    I don’t think so, but there is a website about it with lots of photos and stuff : http://www.theultimateadventure.co.uk.

    Terrance Dicks often phones up our department. I should try and speak to him at some point to tell him I saw TUI as a six-year-old…

    Was that about The Ultimate Adventure? I saw that, in Liverpool (not that incident, but the show). It was simultaneously brilliant and terrible.

    Mitchell and Webb should have been Arthur and Ford. I know it?s been said a million times before, but it?s worth repeating again.

    The Lewisohn guide was excellent – I’m quite miffed that they’ve ditched it. I suppose I’ll have to pick up the book – but then, part of the joy of the online version was its hyperlinked, cross-referenced nature. It’s not a difficult thing to keep updated, irrespective of whether or not Lewisohn himself was writing new content, and like John says, I’ll be very surprised if the new one is anywhere near as comprehensive, or good. Clearly they’ll be rolling it out in stages, so it’ll take a long time to bring it anywhere near up to scratch…

    I’m just wondering where I missed the edict that Tonguetied was now in charge of our website, and so had a right to tell people what they should and shouldn’t be saying, including the people who founded and run the place.

    OH WAIT. THERE WASN’T ONE.

    Erm, that’s not really how a forum works. As we’ve attempted to explain to you before, you have no right whatsoever to try and control a discussion, even if you’ve started it. If you want to do that, start your own site. But by posting in a public, unmoderated forum, you’re obliged to accept that people will say whatever they want to in response.

    Back to the original question: Rimmer-as-Lister?s line ?I was like an animal!? in Bodyswap isn?t bad as such? but it?s blatantly clear that Craig Charles spoke the line far too quickly on the set.

    I still wish it had just been made with the pair of them impersonating each other… but then, I suppose you’d have lost the “woman’s voice” gag from the first scene…

    I’m not sure about it being mentioned at DJ, although I do remember Pete Tyler saying he didn’t like the “stumpy” version, and every time built a new one he’d make it a bit longer…

    Oh, okay. That’s what I thought it was, but I never found it particularly funny, especially as it’s meant to be the punchline of the gag. I thought there was some deeper (or, in Phil’s case, LONGER and HARDER) meaning that I was missing.

    The three best game shows ever : The Crystal Maze, The Krypton Factor and Knightmare. None of which are quiz shows. As John says, there’s a difference.

    In an ideal world, it’s true, 15 to 1 (the best “pure” quiz there’s ever been) would still be running. But you can’t blame DOND, as it’s a completely different kind of show. And if you want a “quiz show with questions”… try Eggheads.

    I still can’t believe they didn’t put the Krypton scenes on the Superman Returns set. My sister got it me for Christmas, and not knowing that there was a 2-disc set with extras, accidentally got me the vanilla. I actually didn’t mind, though, as I realised that the only extra material I’d have wanted to see was the stuff that WASN’T ON THERE…

    I suppose the thing with a show like Ted is that the production company isn’t solely devoted to that series. With GNP, everything is about Dwarf – so the absolute maximum effort can go into the DVDs. With Who, they have the Restoration Team. It’s no coincidence, therefore, that those two shows have by far the best DVD releases out there…

    As I’ve said before – I’m convinced the first ep I saw was “Justice”, because I remember the head mumps scene. However, I saw all of IV on original broadcast – and that includes “Camille” – so going by simple fact (and ignoring my hideously bad memory), it must have been “Camille”.

    Dwarf, Brittas and Harry Enfield’s Television Programme were three things I remember my Dad used to let me stay up late to watch…

    Are you sure about that figure? The REPEAT was moved due to tennis, as was Pete 2?s, but the original went out in the regular slot and I?m pretty sure did better than 2 million?

    You know what I?m going to say, though – I don?t like the way it cuts back to Bernard after the notice. It should have gone from Bernard, to the notice, to Bernard behind the counter?

    Actually, yeah, you’re right on that one. It’s brilliant the way it cuts to him behind the counter, but the cut back to him is a bit unnecessary.

    The cut to Bernard working in the fast food place in series one is one of the most sublime pieces of editing-related timing I’ve ever seen in a sitcom…

    Hmmm. Are these the band performances that get cut, then? That’s a shame – there are quite a few that are more incidental (and, for want of a better word, crap), but some that are not only great, but also necessary narrative-wise as you get the boys travelling somewhere while the band’s playing – I’m thinking specifically of Madness in “Boring” and Motorhead in “Bambi”, here.

    Also, I love the story of why the bands were even in the show in the first place…

    I know I always get shouted down when I say this, but… III is my least favourite of the first six series. Of course, that doesn’t mean that I don’t like it, simply that I don’t like it as much.

    “The Last Day” is one of my favourite eps, though.

    >Still I believe Rob and Doug officially see the show as one continuity it is not disputed anywhere I believe.

    It’s fairly commonly debated among fans, actually. Many people take “THE SAME GENERATION… NEARLY” as justification for all the changes between series II and III, because it allows for the possibility that we’ve jumped into a parallel dimension. I’m not saying it’s necessarily right, but it’s a definite possibility. The point is, parallel timelines are firmly established throughout the series’ history, so it’s not too much of a stretch to use them as a catch-all explanation for the discrepancies.

    Seb Patrick
    Keymaster

    You’ll know if performingmonkey’s being serious, because he’ll be dead.

    I think it was one of these “joke” things, based on the fact that Rob’s first post-Dwarf project was a godawful sitcom set in… the dark ages. Called… The Dark Ages.

    For changes like that, which were done for purely cosmetic reasons without the bother of actually attempting to explain them in-continuity, it’s best to go with the generic explanation : that series III onwards are set in a slightly different parallel universe.
