I'm unnerved by the new eps. There's things that worry me, things that make me think I won't enjoy them. Hope you can allay those fears. Firstly, no Holly? That's kind of inexcusable. How can Red Dwarf (the ship) be minus its heart? Secondly, from the production pics I've seen the actors are really starting to show the ravages of time. I don't know if this was down to shoddy make-up (the Kryten mask looks awful if I'm honest), but all the cast except Lister/Craig look as though they're eligible to claim state pensions. It makes me wonder whether it's right if they can't make the cast look the part. But that was a feeling I was getting all the way through RDVIII anyway. Lastly, continuity. If the story in 'Back to Earth' doesn't sit neatly on the end of RDVIII, I'll probably find myself turning the TV off very quickly. So, a little help to rekindle some confidence?
