    The Photoshop work on that poster is an abomination, I mean that's not professional looking work at all.....hell it looks shoddy even by the standards of a multimedia student.

    Ah, I now see that the hole was for the asteroid...for a moment there I thought the first picture was a bit of a spoiler about what happens to Red Dwarf in the final episode.

    I love that second picture. The back end of the ship looks a bit odd to me, and the sticking out bits at the front seem too big, but the middle section is just wonderful and very aesthetically pleasing.

    The back of the ship does look weird. It never had that huge ring, it sort of just ended and had a cone with what was obviously a lightbulb in the middle of it. I like it though. Better than the Back to Earth one. The camera over the top is encouraging - they only did that shot in the original end credits (we did get it went they went digital, I know, but I'm ignoring that).

    A lot of thought has gone into it.

    The huge ring is part of the design of the 'remastered' Red Dwarf used in 'Red Dwarf VIII'.

    It's also interesting that the meteor in the side of the ship appears to have actually crashed into Red Dwarf and become lodged in it, as opposed to the earlier models where it seems Red Dwarf was built around it.

    Oh yeah, there was a ring later on. I'd have thought that with the RDX ship being, or at least looking, like the one from the early series, they wouldn't have the ring. I would have thought it was something to do with the original specs of the ship when it was rebuilt by the nanos. But then again, we don't know what happened to that ship... yet.

    I noticed that about the meteor - great detail around it.

    I think a nice, long beauty shot of Red Dwarf in space (in HD, no horrible compression) would make for an excellent teaser.

    I was gawping at Twitter whilst Watch is showing Eastenders Revealed and all of a sudden I heard a VERY familiar Theme Tune come on the telly which instantly made me take my eyes away from the computer to see them saying something about leading up to the new series they are showing (which we already know) every episode. Then they showed various clips of past shows and the announcer said "The countdown begins next week."
