    In an episode that was less then convincing,
    The characters were all very mincing,
    With a man in pink,
    Who acts like a dink,
    Our eyes will need a good rinsing!

    There once was a Red Dwarf forum
    Some watched an episode which bored ‘em
    They claimed it was crap, as a statement of fact
    And drove all the other members to boredom.

    He starred in Rob Grant's Strangerers show and in his biography took it upon himself to explain why Doug and Rob split up, which upset Doug as the theory was wrong.

    So apparently (after a quick google) it’s to do with one of the two wanting to move closer to the other to make writing more convenient!?!

    If that’s why they fell out, that’s brilliant!

    Although Walliams goes on the slag off The Strangerers saying only two people watched it - namely Rob and Doug!

    Not sure if this was mentioned either, but one of the authors of the child-like drawings was cited as “Edward Moore” who is the real cinematographer on the show!!! Anyone spot that?

    I've seen some quote from Lucas in his biography, and it makes me think that neither of them are particularly nice. Little Britain came along at the right time, if it were broadcast for the first time now, it would get no viewers and would probably be taken off the air - some of the jokes were OK, but the bitty thing, and the teacher/school girl are off - and the vomiting old ladies, is just humour for 8 year olds. I also get the feeling that the both of them are above themselves and imagine themselves to be part of the Comedy royalty, so probably free to pass comment on other writers.

    It is funny how Rob drops these things into the show every now and then, and I mean 'then' really, the last example I can think of is the Run for Your Wife comment in Stasis Leak.

    Rob Grant hates women and Doug Naylor hates the gays, it's all starting to become clear now.

    Just the sense I'm getting from their behaviour and writing over the last few years.

    I think you're jumping to some pretty dark conclusions, this episode might be insensitive and poorly handled to be sure, but I don't think it's enough to say what his thoughts on homosexuals are. I will say leaning on such out of date stereotypes does show him to be out of touch.......and much should be steering clear of trying to insert social commentary into Red Dwarf.

    Leaning? Doug is practically shouting CHECK THIS MINCING QUEER, HOW GAYLY WE SKIP ABOUT, LOOK HOW LISTER MAKES A DISDAINFUL FACE, HOW UN-PC AM I.

    He inserted his social commentary into Red Dwarf, you can't expect people not to comment on how backwards and pantomime it was.
