UPDATED! See the comments for further info! Anyone heard of the rumour that the TARDIS appears in Red Dwarf? Yes? No? Maybe? Want to know if it’s true? Read on… There was a little known rumour that a Mike Tucker hid a little scale model of Doctor Who‘s TARDIS into one of the Starbug hangar […]
Yeah, we should have reported on this last week, but I only just found out about it through this month’s Doctor Who Magazine – Mike Tucker has a new Who book out! Released on the 21st September and entitled The Nightmare of Black Island, it’s the first new series novel that Mike has written – indeed, it’s the first Who novel he’s written that doesn’t involve the Ace and the Seventh Doctor.
Mike Tucker is one cog in the genius machine that is (was) the BBC VisFX department, and has worked on Red Dwarf since the first series. Apart from seeing his name on screen in form of a nice in-joke (the manufacturer of Kryten’s Psi-Scan is ‘Tucker Enterprises’) Mike has also appeared in an episode of Red Dwarf and Kryten’s love-blob, Camille; but his acting was limited to wheeling around on an office chair, wearing a blob suit.
