It’s cold outside, no kind of atmosphere, all alone more or less… Any fan of Red Dwarf will be able to complete the rest of that song and of course the only way that you can sing it, loudly, and this is the show that Gerri and Eugenia will be discussing in this episode. For the last 28 years intermittently this show has been on the screens of Sci Fi fans all over the world. Whilst there have only been 10 seasons it is always eagerly anticipated and fans look forward for latest adventures of what can only be called a “motley crew”!
Red Dwarf is the adventure for the “everyman/women”. We can all see ourselves blunder through the things that life chucks at us and just like the crew in Red Dwarf, we hope that we will come out the other end with, if not success, at least still alive. So, what do they have for you in this episode? They have interviews with a cat and an American, that is Danny John-Jules the elegant and lithe actor/dancer who plays Cat, the being who evolved from a “cat”! The other is with the bane of our heroes’ lives and that is Mac McDonald, the erstwhile Frank Hollister, the slightly incompetent Captain of the ship.

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.
The British are very good at keeping a television show alive for a long time look at Doctor Who and many other soaps and programs that stay around for many years. But in the world of British geekdom there is another iconic program and that is Red Dwarf. One of the funniest Sci Fi comedies that you can watch now on the air for 25 years! In this episode you may just find Gerri getting her geek out big time and even Eugenia can’t blame her. Gerri and Eugenia talk about Red Dwarf and the heart and soul of the show Dave Lister, played by none other than Craig Charles who they interview this episode. Find out about his passion for the show and why he keeps going back to play “Dave”.
