Red Dwarf X is wrapped!

Just found this and it made me chuckle, Danny John Jules making sure no images of the recently finished series get out.

I won’t be posting updates about Red Dwarf for a while now. As of 7 pm last night, I am no longer encased in rubber, no longer going to Shepperton Studios every day, and sadly, no longer hanging around with the finest, funniest bunch of men I have ever known. Chris Barrie, Craig Charles and Danny John Jules.

We have made 6 new half hour episodes known as Red Dwarf X. It will be broadcast on Dave in the UK from some as yet unconfirmed date in September or October this year. It will be released in many dozens of other new and old media formats globally after that date (but before Christmas) DVD, Blu Ray, Netflix, iTunes blah de blah.

It was recorded in front of an audience (except the fiddly bits we were doing yesterday) and was written and directed by Doug Naylor.

It is, I think I can say without prejudice, classic Red Dwarf, much closer to series 4,5 and 6 than anything else we’ve done since. We used very little CGI (some special effects enhanced by GCI wibbly wobbliness) but we do use a lot of model shots and they look ‘freakin’ awesome’ as young American chaps are known to say.

Now, I have a couple of days off then I start shooting a new series of ‘Fully Charged’ launch my new book ‘News From Gardenia’ and work on a couple of other TV projects, one of which is very close to my heart.

 I will also be posting updates to the audiobook of ‘The Man in the Rubber Mask‘ over the next few months, and around the time Red Dwarf X is broadcast I will be releasing it as an e-book. Now, I’m going to have a nap.

You can see more about the models here.
