UK TV has some shows that never really grow old they just keep on giving. One of these is the iconic Sci Fi comedy Red Dwarf! In this episode Eugenia and Gerri talk to another of the cast. The smartest and dumbest computer on board the ship, (even the scutters are more intelligent than Holly on occasion) is who they are interviewing, the funny and sardonic Norman Lovett. But, as with any episode of Red Dwarf the unexpected can happen and that happened when they started interviewing Norman! In pops the redoubtable Craig Charles, who audio-bombed Norman, what happens next is a laugh fest where Eugenia and Gerri just sit back and let it happen! Eugenia and Gerri also talk all about the latest series’, yes, including Season 9 .
Don’t forget to catch up with their previous interviews with cast members including Cat (Danny John-Jules), Lister (Craig Charles), Kryten (Robert Llewellyn) and Captain Hollister (Mac McDonald). Eugenia and Gerri would like to thank Scott Liston of www.firstcontactconventions.com.au for the opportunity to interview Norman and Craig.
If you have listened to the previous podcast about Red Dwarf you will know how much Gerri & Eugenia love it! In this episode they talk about the show some more because it has been on for a long time, 25 years (on and off) so there is a lot to talk about! In particular they discuss the many aspects of Kryton, the mop and bucket-loving robot who really is the most human one on board the mighty ship and for you lot that like us can sing the theme song off by heart, it may be cold outside but Kryton keeps the crew comfy and warm inside and in clean clothes. So, have guessed who the interview in this episode is? It’s Robert Llewellyn of course, the wonderful actor who plays this most endearing character. Robert is a bit of an all-rounder, he is an author, actor, comedian, and a video podcaster, http://www.youtube.com/user/carpoolUK?feature=watch check it out you just never know who turns up! Gerri and Eugenia would like to thank (really, really thank) Scott and Diana Liston from First Contact Conventions, http://www.firstcontactconvention.com.au and Annabel from Roadshow Entertainment http://roadshow.com.au/tv/comedy.aspx (where the DVD’s come from) for giving them one of their most enjoyable interviews.
