    Unfortunately it seems the filming of Red Dwarf special on 6th December has been postponed due to a cast member illness. Doug shared this yesterday:

    Oh smeg!
    We’re so sorry to have to do this, but due to one of our cast members suffering from illness, we’re going to have to reschedule your live audience recording of the Red Dwarf Special.

    There are so many elements to coordinate when filming a complicated show like Red Dwarf that it’s extremely difficult to pick up lost filming days within a schedule. I know many of you will be disappointed, but we hope that you can all join us at a later date.

    We are currently awaiting confirmation of the rescheduled date – although we can say this is likely to be in January 2020. As soon as we have news we will be in touch to arrange your replacement tickets. Please accept our sincere apologies for any inconvenience caused and we look forward to seeing you at the studio soon.

    Yours Sincerely,
    Doug Naylor

    It can be one of the guest cast. Also he/she can be already fit. Maybe someone was ill this week, so nothing had been shot and they had to push the live recording back.
    Otherwise it would be quite serious illness, when the cast member knows, he/she won't be avaible in two weeks.

    That's a shame and I suppose it could make it less likely that the special will be broadcast in April 2020 now. But the most important thing obviously is that the cast member gets well soon. As long as it gets done in the end - and it will still clearly - that's all that matters. Best wishes for a speedy recovery and more Dwarfing soon!

    I have been applying for tickets for every series since B.T.E. Well not B.T.E. but when the studio audience was back again, so S10 onwards but have never been lucky enough to get any. "Hey Ho pip and Dandy".

    That sounds more hopeful and promising today. In fact like AntE said there is nothing in the news section (at the moment yet) so maybe it will still go ahead in December after all (unless the unwell cast member is not one of the main Dwarfers and is only in the scenes filmed in front of the audience so they could continue filming this other material anyway)? Whatever happens, hopefully this is just a small hiccup and like Bluey said we will all being well still see it broadcast earlier in the next year!

    Fingers crossed.

    Shall I challenge them if you please?

    Remember when @simulant37 suggested you do the same with the noisy man in the cinema. Good times.

    You need to get in touch and demand that you be given some tickets for your loyalty to the official website. Let them know that you're a prominent member of the official Red Dwarf forum and that you're not at all pleased about the way you've been treated.

    I’m afraid my search for the truth behind the Smeg Out competition has left me with many enemies!!!!!!!

    Think they had a break of about a week and a half and announced the illness when they knew they were almost ready to start working again to stop fans worrying too much about it all :-)
