I’d always assumed that Red Dwarf associate (or should that be “exec“?) producer Andrew Ellard spent his entire life immersed in the show, even when it wasn’t being made. I’ve always had this picture of him sitting at his desk, watching the DVDs over and over again, occasionally having a chat with Doug, and just counting down the days until Friday so that he could post news items on the official site.
But it turns out that no. That perception is a good few years out of date. Because Andrew actually has an entire non-Dwarfy CAREER as a writer and somewhat renowned script editor, a career that’s just yielded a radio sitcom pilot that you can download for free RIGHT NOW.
