    Props to Cretin for the link, I felt this deserved its own thread:

    For those without sound--CC stated he can OFFICALLY announce they are making two new series starting in January. He just got the call asking if he could do it then and he said YES!

    "I'm a bit nervous...I don't know if I can fit in the trousers anymore!"

    Robert Llewelyn also had this tease via Twitter:

    YEAH DWARF!

    Fantastic!

    No official announcement on the site yet, which is slightly worrying, but this is still great to hear. At least we know that something definitely appears to be happening in the world of Dwarf.

    Fantastic :-D it was about time we heard something! Seems a very very long way off though. I bet we wont see them on tv until about another year from now.

    Considering the lack of official announcements, I wonder if Craig will get in a spot of trouble for that?

    Still, sounds good :-D

    Isn't that how it happened with BTE, as well? Except for I think it was Robert Llewelyn who let the cat out of the bag for that one.

    Rob was allowed to then. He was in America for something and he kept saying on the lead up to it that he had some exciting news he had to announce while he was there, seems like years ago now. Well must have been about 2 as it goes!

    Craig sounded so excited and upbeat. I greatly enjoyed him joking around with the radio crew "Hey, don't go measuring me!" after his trousers remark.

    Ahh, I can't wait! Something big to look forward to in 2011!

    I think Robert got into a bit of trouble for revealing specific things in the specials (on Twitter I think) rather than for announcing the specials themselves.

    js exchanged a few tweets with Rob on twitter. Im on my phone so cant copy and paste, however the jist is he hasnt heard anything 'official' but has heard something about it ....

    You can see them at www.twitter.com/bobbyllew they'll be the tweets addressed to me 'quinn_drummer'

    seems odd if Craig is announcing it (altho i do feel it was more out of excitment than anything) of Rob hasnt heard much

    Or maybe Rob learned his lesson on "speaking out of turn" when he announced BTE? :P

    He's heard things, at the very least. Craig said he got his call yesterday, maybe Rob's is on the way?

    also, he was confused what i was on about at first when i said Craig has js announced it. He thought i meant something else.

    Last tweet from him

    'well i have heard a bit, but don't want to say just yet. i've heard nothing 'official' '

    make of that what you will
