What's that now? You wanted more backwards stuff in your Backwards novel? Well, have we got the DwarfCast for you! Yes, whether you like it or not, in this episode Cappsy, Ian and Danny go Back to Backworld one last time as Rob Grant forces us to consider the reverse logistics of, let's say, a few too many bodily functions. Thanks Rob.

IT. IS. DONE.

I feel like we've been going on about milestones quite a lot recently, but to add to our previous BBC-era accomplishment we have now finally recorded a commentary for every single extant episode of TV Red Dwarf! Whether or not this ends up being the last ever remains to be seen, but let's hope we'll be returning to our longest running feature sooner rather than never. Before that, though, join Ian, Danny and Cappsy in this feature length commentary of the Dave era's finest, The Promised Land.

Yes, I'm sorry, I know we asked you to smoke us some kippers and I realise that we gave you a very specific idea about the sort of time you'd expect us back, but sometimes these things take a little longer than expected, ok? The kippers will be fine, we'll have them cold in some kedgeree or something. Please, stop crying.

Yes, that's right, your three favourite ace holes have returned with the next instalment of the DwarfCast Book Club, which this time is all about part 2 of Backwards, Smoke me a Kipper, I'll be Back for Breakfast. Why is Louis Pemberton a perfect human being? How did Lewis Pemberton save Red Dwarf? Is Ace really all that great when compared to Lewis Pemberton? Lewis Pemberton? Ian, Danny and Cappsy discuss all that, and more!

Another day, another DwarfCast milestone as we have finally completed our commentaries on all traditionally lengthed Red Dwarf episodes, marking an end to a series of casts going back to 2006. Unless Series XIII comes along, of course. Also, we're going to do The Promised Land in a few weeks. And we'll likely revisit some old episodes if we feel like it. But still.

Anyway, join Ian, Cappsy and Danny as they jump between dimensions to see if they can find a reality in which Doug remembers he wrote Dimension Jump and Stoke me a Clipper as they have a jolly old time talking over the final episode of Red Dwarf XI, Skipper.

Welcome to another episode of the Bulc Koob TsacFrawd! It feels like a very, very long time ago that we finished Better than Life but finally we're getting to its sequel! Er, again. Because when it comes to Red Dwarf, sensible continuity is just something that happens to other franchises. So, join Ian Symes, Danny Stephenson and Jonathan Capps as they start their journey into the weird and wonderful world of Rob Grant's Backwards, because All Good Boys Deserve Fatuous opinions of twats.

We continue our triumphant victory lap of commentaries as we mop up the last few episodes with M-Corp, officially the second best episode of Series XII and a solid favourite of the site in general. Join Cappsy, Ian and Danny as they hope against hope that they haven't got their microphones mixed up with something entirely less savoury.

Well, it's been quite a journey but we're finally here: Last Human is finished. I don't think we realised when we started this endeavour just how interesting the revisiting of Doug's solo novel would be, but I think we've all come out of the other side a little wiser and a lot more weary of acronyms. So, join the last human alive Ian Symes, mankind's final hope Danny Stephenson and the universe's one remaining broccoli farmer Jonathan Capps as they discuss the second half of The Rage and reflect on what is most certainly a very weird and sometimes frustrating book.

It's 10pm, polls are closing across the country and G&T are now projecting that the next DwarfCast will be... Mechocracy! And in the tradition of all good election coverage, we will now force you to listen to some terrible people talk about the results for longer than is strictly necessary, specifically the Right Honourable Cunts of the Scottish NatIanal, Liberal Dannycrats and The Labour & Cappsoperative parties.

And so the DwarfCast Book Club advances wearily on, as we continue our re-read (although the failing memories of your hosts means this may as well be a first read) of Doug Naylor's literally seminal novel, Last Human. We're in the final part of the book itself but due to reasons beyond our comprehension it accounts for half of its length so we're splitting it in twain. Join Cappsy, Ian and Danny as they gather round a table at Rita's Kabin and try to figure out what the bloody hell is going on.

DwarfCast 131 - Timewave Commentary featured image

Over Ganymede & Titan's long and illustrious life we have seen many milestones. 3 years long service. 6 years long service. 9 years long service. 12 years long service. 15 years long service... 18 years long service. But today we mark the day we officially commentate on the last truly shit episode of Red Dwarf (so far). Its loomed large over us for months as we approached but three heroes have arrived and slew the great beast, probably with some amusingly juxtapositioned song playing in the background.

So now, we present to you the defeated corpse... of Timewave.
