It’s not so much of a news roundup as a news catch-up this week with a few bits that we forgot to bring you before, so apologies if some of this is a few weeks behind.
- Series X
Firstly, an update on the 48 second trailer we mentioned previously. Last Sunday we knew the trailer to be due sometime in the next two weeks roughly, but following this tweet from Richard Naylor it appears that we will actually be due the trailer sometime next week, most likely on Friday to tie in with the official site’s weekly update:
I’m off to Crete for a week! Woop! By the time I’m back you’ll all have seen the new RDX trailer!!
We’ll be updating quickly when we have more details (on the trailer that is, not Richard’s Greek holiday), and depending on the type of Trailer we get we’ll probably have a series of screen grabs and a breakdown for you too.
- DwarfCast: The End – Original Assembly Commentary
Ganymede & Titan updated a couple of weeks back with a new DwarfCast. The new episode covers the original assembly of The End that was reconstructed for the Bodysnatcher collection, plus a bonus of the Series I deleted scenes. Here’s the blurb:
As we approach Series X, almost all of G&T gathered to warm up our vocal chords and surprising opinions. Join John, Ian, Cappsy, Danny and, very occasionally, the fan club’s Jo as we talk over The End: Original Assembly (we’re just too cool for the broadcast version) from the Bodysnatcher DVD and then later, in what can only be described as a ‘special treat’, the Series 1 deleted scenes.
- The Red Dwarf Introcast
A new Red Dwarf podcast has appeared online in the shape of The Red Dwarf Introcast. Following in the format of other introcasts, the podcast involves 4 people watching Red Dwarf and then talking about it; two of whom haven’t seen any of it previously. The first two epsiodes covering The End and Future Echoes are now up to download and you can find them on the podcast’s website and is also avalible on iTunes.
- News From Gardenia On Amazon
Robert’s latest book, News from Gardenia, is now available on Amazon after previously only being purchasable from the Unbound website. The book, which is available in hardcover and Kindle form, can also be previewed on the Amazon website with the first two chapters available to read online. A general release to high-street book shops is due sometime this year.
