    Series 7 was orchestric music Howard put together. Series 8 only had one track by Howard and that was the Blue midget dance music.

    I imagine Howards is not cheap either. and so he shouldn't be. he has been doing this for 30 years. he helped Doug out with Series 10 when they run out of money. but at the same time... what can ya do.

    He released a 25-minute underscore album of VII music. some of the tracks were not used but most of were. the JFK track, Ace Rimmer, The Rimmer Song was him singing. but from the sound of it, there wasn't enough used for 12.

    No for me those were the two moments that were the biggest cringe and I nearly gave up watching.

    But it's Kryten, not the cats, who incorrectly explains the cat headed business to the crew and ergo the viewer.

    No response, not even a hand-wavy one, to the multiple times this has been asked on Twitter now would seem to suggest it is an actual mistake.

    Good point, I could understand if the cats had got it completely wrong, but Kryten ?

    Why does the large Floppy disk sound like an old modem logging on rather than the noise a floppy disk makes.

    My favourite/funniest part was when they converted Cat and he started dancing round the table 'Lister, David Lister, Listy, Listy, Listy, Listy, Lister'. One week on and that song is still catchy!!

    I feel the same way. I can't understand why people keep going on about the cat flap and the floppy disk as if they were moments of comedy genius. I thought they were probably the two least funny things in the whole special and the kind of dated visual humour that Russ Abbot or Bobby Davro would have done thirty years ago.

    If he had problems with his score not being used enough, he would compose a music for the feature-length film, as there was a bigger space for it than in a normal episode.

    Maybe there were just budgetary issues, or Howard simply wasn't available.

    (By the way, this is the kind of issue I expected to be adresed in the documentary...)

    Well hopefully it will be, I expect the documentary and extras on the DVD will be more than what was televised.
