Episode 4 update

We recorded episode 4 of the new series of Red Dwarf last night in front of a truly amazing audience. They were so patient and kind, they laughed and cheered and clapped through a long night in, it has to be said, not the most comfortable seats. Our wonderful warm up man/host, Ray Peacock is a huge help in keeping the energy up. I think last nights ep could turn out to be one of the best this series, the only frustrating thing for us that due to pressure of time (lack of it) and technical difficulties we couldn't show the whole ep to the audience, still got a couple of scenes to record.
That said though, although today I am utterly knackered, it was a great night.

We are more than half way through recording 6 new episodes for the Dave Channel in the UK, they will be broadcast starting in September this year and I know they will receive wide distribution elsewhere around the globe after that. I will slap details up here as soon as I know.

On Monday we see the scripts for episode 5. We (the cast) truly have no idea what to expect, we haven't seen a page yet.

Robert, thanks for a great performance last night! I came all the way from Germany (fun fact: Red Dwarf has never made it to German TV) and it was more than worth it. Now all I want is those last five minutes...

Thanks for an amazing night, Robert. You guys were all on dazzling form and the series looks set to be truly excellent. Some great smeg ups for the DVD, too ;)

Even though we didn't catch the ending, it certainly cut at an intriguing moment! All the best for the rest of the filming =)
