    After seeing the twitter updates here is what interesting information we can get from them =)


    Doug has confirmed that Series X Rimmer is in fact the original Rimmer, not the S8 Rimmer

    Studio Audience confirmed for future series

    Doug has a feeling they may start shooting Series XI in February.

    Doug promises more Novels written by Him and some written by Rob Grant.

    Doug can't imagine ever writing a final episode.

    Doug wants to write and direct the new series once again.

    When asked about a return for holly doug just said "yes".

    When Asked if he plans to bring Chloë back as a regular. he Said he wants to find things for her to do but not necessarily as Kochanski.

    Possible longer red dwarf model for new series?.

    It's great to hear Doug feels they'll likely start filming in February. Although apparently he wasn't able to give an official confirmation.

    Would've been even better if the filming was later this year, but February isn't too long a wait really. :-)

    I'll admit to thinking "I don't remember that!" (I was in the audience). Then it occurred to me the coffee lounge folk probably heard a bit more. I'm home and there was more stuff to come!

    I spoke with him briefly at the autograph session. I asked about getting Lister's guitar back. He said that he was already working on it, with Kryten finding it and Rimmer being most displeased. Maybe he was just mollifying a electic guitar-mad fan.... :roll:

    Also, he told me that he would want Howard Goodall doing the music again.

    I asked him. He said he might come back to it in a future series, or he might not. He doesn't feel it's important. He considered several different resolutions, I don't think he knows exactly what happens himself.

    sounds like he probably won't ever explain what happened, maybe in a comic or graphic novel it will

    RE; Doug's "Yes" answer to the Holly question.

    I'm interested to know what the question actually was, specifically. I mean, was it "is there a chance Holly may appear in the new series?" or was it "Will Holly be appearing in the new series?".

    Either way, I would personally welcome a return of either incarnation of Holly. Although I'll personally always be slightly biased towards Norm. I love Hattie too though. :-)

    I took it to mean there is a chance, nothing definite. He's just open to the idea.

    Mr. Lovett wasn't there.

    Well Feb (if that is right) really isn't too bad, and learning from the production issues of series X may also mean that the episodes themselves might not take quite as long in post.

    it took about 3 months to film Series X, and maybe a month or 2 of post production, so it could be broadcast by October next year

    if Feb is when they film it of course
