    After a long wait, here are the answers to the burning questions you threw at @Pembers for him to respond to! These are all the things you possibly could have wondered about him, ever:

    Before you read, please be aware that there are mild mentions of series XI. I'm assuming you've all seen it, but that's that.

    1. Money no object where would you live and why?

    I really enjoyed the time I spent in Orlando so probably there.

    2. What other Science Fiction do you watch/read besides Red Dwarf?

    Very little, I’m not actually that much into Sci-Fi. I did recently discover Rick and Morty and enjoyed that.

    3. Rugby or Cricket?

    Big fan of both and a bit of a cop out answer is ‘it depends’. I mean I’d rather watch a Harleqins match than a County Championship match, rather watch an England test match than a Quins match, rather an England rugby match than an England cricket T20 or ODI. If pressed to choose one sport over the other I’d just go with cricket.

    4. Are you more a Taylor Swift kind of guy, a Janis Joplin kind of guy, or a Dolly Parton kind of guy?

    No idea who Janis Joplin is, and whilst I’ve heard of Taylor Swift I couldn’t name any of her songs, so I’ll go with Dolly.

    5. You can talk to anyone , from any time era, for two hours who would it be?

    My Nan, let her know how everyone is getting on.

    6. What is 45.265881 ?

    The square root of 2,049?

    7. what is your opinion on Tex Rimmer

    Abe is a Clam.

    8. What happened at waterloo?

    Waterloo - I was defeated, you won the war
    Waterloo - Promise to love you for ever more
    Waterloo - Couldn't escape if I wanted to
    Waterloo - Knowing my fate is to be with you
    Waterloo - Finally facing my Waterloo

    9. What do you think of Stu trying to become you

    I agree.

    10. Who is the greatest WWE wrestler of all time

    Theeeeeeeeeeee Unnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnndeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeerrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrtayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyykahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.

    11. How big is your enormous penis?

    [​IMG]

    12. How many ladies has Sex Pembers sexed up?

    This week? Not many, still it’s only Monday. About 50 or so.

    13. Do you like guffs

    Only when in [@jmc2000]’s trousers.

    14. Cloud is the best. Agreed?

    Obviously.

    15. How did you find the forum and what were your first impressions of it?

    Must say I don’t really recall, I think I was looking for news of any further series after X. I remember enjoying the ‘ranking’ threads, where people gave scores for all the episodes.

    16. When and how did you become a Red Dwarf fan?

    I remember watching it with my parents when I was younger, my first memory is of when ‘The Listers’ wake up in Parallel Universe and you see Deb’s feet by Dave’s head, I found that fascinating. I think it was a repeat though as I would only have been about 5 at the time it was first broadcast.

    The first ‘new’ Red Dwarf I remember being excited for was Series 6. I had by then all of Series 1 on VHS and for Christmas that year I got BYTE 2 of Series 6. I became a more ‘obsessive’ fan a few years later when the remastered videos were being released.

    17. What's your favourite Red Dwarf episode and why?

    The Inquisitor. It has a really fascinating plot, a genuinely scary villain, some really funny stuff and I love the whole concept of justifying yourself to yourself, no BS, no blagging. That scene is TV gold in my opinion, as good as anything.

    18. What's your favourite Red Dwarf season and why?

    Series V I think, every episode is really good, I can’t pick a weak one. Lots of cool villains, bit of romance and loads of great comedy.

    19. If you have read them, what do you think of the Red Dwarf novels?

    Read them all in that mid 90’s period when I became a bit of an obsessive fan. I remember enjoying them all, probably ‘Infinity’ and ‘Backwards’ the most. I enjoyed the fact they were more in depth and gave better explanations and reasons for things happening than the TV is able to do (Understandably). I enjoyed the ‘hunger games’ type thing in Backwards (I think it was)

    20. What other sites do you visit?

    Nothing to exciting, I visit Ganymede and Titan for Red Dwarf stuff. Twitter, LinkedIn, arsenal.com, YouTube, Netflix, BBC, Wrestlezone, BigBoysInBoots.org

    21. What are your interests outside of Red Dwarf?

    Like me sport, already spoken about Rugby and Cricket, big Arsenal fan, follow snooker and boxing too and have a polite interest in F1, Tennis and Athletics. Also enjoy watching wrestling if you classify that as sport.

    Enjoy walking, live close to the Thames and a national park so love going for long walks when I have time. Enjoy cooking and going to beer festivals too. Also count my profession as an interest, which brings me nicely on to…

    22. What do you do for a living?

    I work in marketing.

    23. Who is your favourite member?

    Kry10 obviously.

    24. Who is your least favourite member?

    I don’t like to be mean about anyone.

    Let’s just say his name starts with ‘Ant’ and rhymes with ‘Ant’.

    [Interviewer Note: The only person who appears to match this description is @Ant.]

    25. Which member would you most like to have sexy time in Waterloo station with?

    Kry10 obviously.

    26. Describe your walk.

    Sexy

    27. Describe your hat.

    Sexy.

    28. Who is your favourite member you've met irl.

    I have only met [@Nikki the Great] and [@jmc2000] and they are equally sexy and lovely.

    29. Can Lister play guitar?

    Yes

    30. why do you have such a stupid name “Pembers”?! Ugh....

    It’s a nickname many people have called me in real life.

    31. What are you memories of simulant?

    I remember he enjoyed his craft beer, antagonising ‘Harru’, ignoring Ant and saying ‘if you please’.

    He disliked all Red Dwarf after Series 6, the Tories, the Explain that thread and Bluey.

    32. The forum is on fire; do you save Andrew Ellard or Sebastian Patrick (and why?)

    Big Seb cos he is the boss, Mr Ellard no longer works here as far as I know.

    [more in part two!]

    [continued from part one!]


    33. BigOleDummy - Jesus that man goes on and on and on doesn't he?!

    I like BoD, he can go on as much as he wants.

    34. When was the last time you were nude?

    This morning.

    35. R u married

    No

    36. R u married to kittypaws

    Yes

    37. Who on the forum have you met/ what did they smell like?

    I have met [@Nikki the Great] and [@jmc2000]. Nik smelt like my underwear and [jmc] smelt like elderly plums.

    38. Is it time Bluey retired?

    Thought he had.

    39. Name theee thingS Bluey contributes to this site?!

    The things or 3 things? Either way my answer is

    Discipline
    Discipline
    Discipline

    40. Bet you’re happy danny has done a runner (even though it’s painfully obviously he’s back)

    I don’t really care either way.

    41. How differently do you think Andrew would have handled the whole “danny” thing?

    I wasn’t around much for Andrew’s tenure so hard to say. I think Seb dealt with it ok.

    42. Nikki? Fancy her? Are you lovers?

    Nikki is wonderful. I don’t have sex with her at Waterloo station and tell.

    43. Favourite forum memory

    Hmmmmm good question, I think when Series XI and XII were announced and the ‘STILL no Series XI news’ thread became the ‘STILL There’s Series XI news’ thread. Or something like that, we were all very happy.

    44. When you were on the live recording of Officer Rimmer, did the audience laugh everything or were some laughs added in post production?

    I guess a bit of manipulation is done with the laughter but I’m not sure. There was about 10 months between recording and broadcast so difficult to remember when people did or didn’t laugh.

    45. Was there some light "LAUGH NOW" or something like that?

    Kind of, they basically remind you that you are an important part of the process and they need you to be loud. Basically you laugh when you are supposed to, to help the production. Particularly on 2nd and 3rd takes (most scenes were shot more than once to get different camera angles.)

    Craig Charles did ask for a bigger laugh on one of his lines which I found odd as it wasn’t really a joke. The whole scene was cut anyway but I won’t say what it was in case it turns up in a later episode like the promotion/demotion, Technician 2.5 stuff, which was originally recorded for Officer Rimmer.

    46. How long was the whole recording?

    About 2 and a half hours I think. This was nearly 2 years ago now so I’m not positive.

    47. Did you get chance to talk with crew?

    The production crew you mean? Only the people showing you in, giving out wristbands etc, they were all very nice and professional.

    48. Did you get any food?

    There were a few refreshments available to buy, just sweets and snacks and cans of drink, tea and coffee. If I remember rightly you couldn’t take it into the studio it had to be consumed in the ‘waiting room’ thingy.

    49. Was that food good?

    I don’t think I had anything but it was just branded items, mars bars etc.

    50. How could Stephen Critchlow see in captain's Herring mask?

    His scenes were pre-recorded however he was introduced to the audience afterwards, if I remember rightly he was still in costume but had taken the mask off so I guess his scenes had been done earlier that day. Don’t quote me on that.

    [​IMG]

    51. Did you have nice day?

    Yes really good.

    52. What kind of chocolate is your favourite kind of chocolate?

    Dark chocolate or chocolate orange.

    53. Who is your most and least favourite forum member?

    Kry10 and Kry10 obviously.

    54. What kind of forum member is your favourite kind of forum member?

    One that has a name what rhymes with Rex Timmer.

    55. Did you have nice day with your most/least favourite forum member and chocolate?

    Yes.

    56. Do you drink ice-cream?

    No it is food.

    57. Do you drink ice-scream?

    I scream for ice-cream.

    58. Have you ever eaten part of your body?

    No, I’ve eaten parts of @Pumpki….. never mind.

    59. Do you know what is Red Dwarf?

    Many things are red and don’t call me Dwarf.

    60. What does @Pembers think about this?

    He thinks so.

    61. What is your opinion on fedoras?

    Not as good as Trilby’s.

    62. Is STOLEing morally correct?

    Yes and Grammaticalerly.

    63. What is your favorite episode from each series of Dwarf?

    Hmmmmmm ok

    1. The End
    2. Queeg
    3. Marooned
    4. Justice
    5. The Inquisitor
    6. Out of Time.

    Nice interview. I'm guessing the two questions that mentioned me were from @Ant E?

    We can probably safely assume that anyway. But when @Ant E did my interview I just got the questions, no idea who asked what. Made some assumptions of course........... certain people leave certain clues scattered about in their questions :roll:
