    Hi everyone,

    A few months ago I had the idea of doing a psychology based Red Dwarf review show for the “Red Dwarf TV” YouTube channel. Recently an Australian publisher said he is a massive Red Dwarf fan and would love to publish this as a book!!

    The book will look at the psychology and related themes used in Red Dwarf – and include tips on how to deal with certain issues displayed: anxiety, fear of failure, lack of confidence and so on.

    Every episode will be discussed separately on it's themes and use of psychology issues – including obvious once like Confidence and Paranoia, Terrorform, Justice, the Beginning and so on.

    I will also be looking to talk to fans and fanfiction writers:

    For fans: How has Red Dwarf helped them in life/what did the show teach them?

    Give your opinion on certain episodes and scenes that might go ignored a lot, and certain characters issues or scenes that are often overlooked.

    And additional for the fic writers: how do they see the characters mental health, has writing the characters been cathartic sometimes?

    I'm really happy about this and hope you like the idea as well. Red Dwarf was what got me interested in psychology, so this really is a full circle.
    Lots of love,

    DanniiXX

    What does your fanfiction have to do with psychology?

    I asked mother if she wished to contribute.

    “I don’t do autobiography” came her reply.
    I tried.
