2/16/2018
More
As part of our Live 30th Anniversary DwarfCast, also available in full elsewhere on the feed, we attempted our first ever live episode commentary. Join Jonathan Capps, John Hoare, Tanya Jones, Danny Stephenson, Ian Symes and Jo Sharples as they discuss all things The End, such as Chris Barrie's thights, Craig Charles's testicles, clipboards, reused bits of set and the back of Doug Naylor's head.

DwarfCast 96 - Mac McDonald Interview Xtended

11/16/2017
More
Last Friday morning - a mere twelve hours after Skipper had landed on UKTV Play - a DwarfCast splinter group consisting of Ian Symes, Danny Stephenson and Jo Sharples descended on returning guest star Mac McDonald's house, and he foolishly decided to let us in, for the second time in as many years. Later that night, we played you a brief snippet during the Live DwarfCast, but our conversation was long and rambling, so here's the full-length uncut version. Our rambling chat touched upon all...

DwarfCast 95 - Live Skipper Instant Reaction

11/11/2017
More
It's the final live DwarfCast of the series, and this very special occasion is marked with an almost full set of G&Ters gathering in the same room at the same time. John Hoare, Tanya Jones, Danny Stephenson and Ian Symes, along with returning guest star Jo Sharples of the Red Dwarf Fan Club, came armed a whole heap of opinions on the series finale, and a few surprises up our sleeves, the most exciting of which is an exclusive interview with... Mac McDonald! So join us to discuss all things...

DwarfCast 90 - Live Cured Instant Reaction

10/7/2017
More
The long wait is finally over. Red Dwarf is BACK and so are our LIVE DwarfCasts - in a change from Series XI, these are now happening at UKTV pace, meaning they're back to being (almost) Instant Reactions. First up, a rather under-strength G&T team was represented by Ian Symes, joined by a trio of guests: Jo Sharples of The Official Red Dwarf Fan Club fame, Helena Raymonde of hanging round car parks with Robert Llewellyn fame, and Clayton Hickman of actual fame. Yes, the former editor of...

DwarfCast 89 - Stoke me a Clipper Commentary

9/10/2017
More
With just over a month until Red Dwarf XII debuts on Dave (and most likely just under a month until it debuts on UKTV Play), what the world needs right now is another discussion about Series VII. Luckily, we've picked one of the better episodes of that particular run as the subject for our latest commentary. Get ready to update your spreadsheets at home, and tick off Stoke Me A Clipper. Join Cappsy, Danny, Ian and the Fan Club's Jo Sharples (who, by the way, has recently announced the...

DwarfCast 86 - Series XI Semi Retrospective Byte Two

3/5/2017
More
All around the world, Red Dwarf fans have been on tenterhooks for the past seven days, desperately longing to find out the G&T team's semi-retrospective thoughts on the second half of Series XI. Rejoice, because the moment you've been waiting for his finally here, as Cappsy, John, Tanya, Danny and Ian conclude their revisit by documenting their thoughts on Officer Rimmer, Krysis and Can of Worms, as well as touching on the DVD/Bluray release, conclusions on the series as a whole, and the...

DwarfCast 85 - Series XI Semi Retrospective Byte One

2/26/2017
More
Yes, DwarfCasts are finally back, following a four month wait between the end of Series XI and a day on which almost all of us could be in the same room. Has this additional thinking time enabled us to process our thoughts on the series enough to provide a coherent and insightful analysis as to where it went right and where it went wrong, or will it be the usual mix of ranting, swearing and giggling? Join Jonathan Capps, John Hoare, Tanya Jones, Danny Stephenson (down the line from our...

DwarfCast 84 - Live Can of Worms Reaction

10/27/2016
More
So here we are, after seven weeks Red Dwarf XI has finally been released in its entirety and so ends our own immediate coverage of the series. At least until the DVD and Bluray come out, that is! So, for the final time this year, please join Ian Symes, Tanya Jones, John Hoare, Jonathan Capps, Danny Stephenson and perma-guest Jo Sharples as they pick through the final episode and the series as a whole and try to work out wherer XI currently places in the pantheon of Dwarf.

DwarfCast 83 - Live Krysis Reaction

10/20/2016
More
As we hurtle towards series end, we gather to analyse the living fuck out of Krysis. Join Ian Symes, John Hoare (in his triumphant return to the land of the not hospitalised), Tanya Jones, Daniel Stephenson and Jonathan Capps along with the Fan Club's Jo Sharples as they lift their respective cloches, revealing the tasty, tasty opinions within.

DwarfCast 82 - Live Officer Rimmer Reaction

10/13/2016
More
Prepare yourself for a damn good Rimming as we round up our immediate post-broadcast coverage of Officer Rimmer in our live reaction DwarfCast, presented to you here to be enjoyed at your leisure. Join Ian Symes, Jonathan Capps, Danny Stephenson, the Fan Club's Jo Sharples as they thrash through the many talking points generated by the episode, and try to pick through the many and varied opinions generated. Oh, and we also have a massive moan about UKTV Play.

DwarfCast 80 - Live Samsara Reaction

9/30/2016

Samsara sara, whatever will be will be. The future's not ours to see, so instead, head very slightly into the past with this downloadable version of Thursday night's live reaction DwarfCast for Samsara. Jonathan Capps, Tanya Jones, Danny Stephenson, Ian Symes and TORDFC's Jo Sharples were on hand to talk you through all their complicated feelings about the episode, along with some little known facts, an update on Red Dwarf XI: The Game, a preview of Give & Take and a round-up of the latest...

DwarfCast 78 - The Beginning Commentary

9/12/2016
More
It's the end! No, wait, the opposite of that. It's The Beginning, as we draw our coverage of Series X to a close, just in time for the coverage of Series XI to begin. Join Jonathan Capps (via Skype), Tanya Jones, Danny Stephenson, Ian Symes and the Fan Club's Jo Sharples as we discuss such burning issues as how many of the Rimmer brothers are illegitimate, what Arnold's dying words actually were, including whether or not he even said "gazpacho soup" in the first place, and our feelings on...

DwarfCast 76 - Entangled Commentary

8/28/2016
More
By a remarkable coincidence, our run of Series X commentaries continues with Entangled. Join Cappsy, Ian, John, Tanya and TORDFC's Jo Sharples as we discuss such topics as Chris Barrie's status as an attractive man, a particularly obscure Doctor Dwarf moment, burnt tea, whether it's better to kill a chimp or a woman, and shoving spoons up one's arse. Plus, considering this was recorded months ago, some remarkably prescient comments about the release schedule of trailers, and Britain's...

DwarfCast 75 - Lemons Commentary

8/21/2016
More
Our countdown to the launch of Series XI - whichever of the two launch dates you choose to acknowledge - continues as we present our commentary for the third episode of Series X, Lemons. Recorded a few weeks after the last two commentaries, join Jonathan Capps, John Hoare, Tanya Jones, Ian Symes and TORDFC's Jo Sharples as we propose an alternative ending to the Shakespeare running gag, have a remarkably prescient discussion about the option to watch Red Dwarf on UKTV Play (despite...

DwarfCast 74 - Fathers & Suns Commentary

8/14/2016
More
Yes, we've stuck to something for two weeks in a row. Here's the second of our Series X commentaries, which predictably enough covers Fathers & Suns. John, Danny, Ian and TORDFC's Jo Sharples return to discuss such matters as how much help Lister got in creating his video, how this is the show's third Holly-centric episode, Alf Garnett, and a hidden cock and balls. Oh, and racism. Let's see if this room full of white people can sort out that thorny problem once and for all. As well as...

DwarfCast 73 - Trojan Commentary

8/6/2016
More
We estimate that we're about six to seven weeks away from the first broadcast of Red Dwarf XI. What better way to clear the decks ahead of the new series than by wrapping up our coverage of the last one? Over the next six weekends, we'll be marking the countdown to new Dwarf by releasing weekly commentaries for all six episodes of Series X. Unless XI starts earlier than we're anticipating, in which case we'll either rush them all out or pretend the whole thing never happened. Join John...

DwarfCast 72 - Demons & Angels Commentary

6/7/2016
More
Years after we first started these commentaries we've managed to tick another series off the list, this time with Series V, as we mop up Demons & Angels. Join Jonathan Capps, Ian Symes, John Hoare, Tanya Jones and TORDFC's Jo Sharples as we unpick one of the show's more unusual episodes and arguably the show's best series. As a side note, why not try playing a fun drinking game, taking a sip every time you can hear a cat destroying something, and a shot every time one of us says something...

DwarfCast 71 - Queeg Commentary

5/15/2016
More
Okay, suckers. Get this into your stupid thick heads. There's only one thing I'm going to say to you: please listen to our episode commentary for Queeg. Danny, John, Ian and TORDFC's Jo Sharples gather around to discuss such topics as Ed Bye's directorial flair, the nature of Holly's consciousness, how the show might have developed had Norman Lovett stayed on, and the surface area of peas. There's also a somewhat startling new theory about how long Holly's joke lasted - was "Queeg"...

DwarfCast 70 - Mac McDonald interview

4/1/2016
More
Somewhat foolishly, film star, comedy veteran and Space Corps captain Mac McDonald willingly allowed two members of the G&T team to enter his home. This is the resultant conversation, which takes in such topics as duetting with Dolly Parton, being terrified of Sean Connery, illicit sexual encounters during the filming of Series 1, cereal and fat jokes. Ian Symes is your host, and his posse consists of Danny Stephenson and Jo Sharples. An enormous thank you to Mac for his time, hospitality...

DwarfCast 69 - Epideme / Nanarchy Commentary

3/25/2016
More
You heard. It's two for the price of one, although double nothing is still nothing. Danny Stephenson and Ian Symes continue their odyssey to watch the shit bits so that the rest of the team don't have to, with occasional interjections from guests Jo Sharples of TORDFC, and Tom Pyott. We tackle the loose two-parter of Epideme and Nanarchy, discussing such diverse topics as the merits of Gary Martin, the practical applications of nanotechnology and recently proposed changes to disability...
