Cat, Kryten and Lister aka Danny John-Jules, Robert Llewellyn and Craig Charles were a hit at the Smegcon yesterday. Fans clamoured for a word, a picture and an autograph. VIP fans even had lunch with the boys. Despite a hard night out beforehand, Danny and Craig were on top form.
During their audience questionnaires Craig revealed what he does with reviews he reads and that “I’ve been doing Red Dwarf longer than I’ve not been.” He had also brought his son and they both sang together, which was lovely.
Danny talked about being in a ‘Top 10 Cool SF Characters Of All Time’ List. And added: “Half of my life I’ve been acting like a pussy”, he finished his talk with “Was he Swedish.” He also revealed he missed his young sons birthday to be there. Danny’s Mum was there with him too and she was telling lots of stories to everyone.
Robert meanwhile came up with a very polite anti-Lister anecdote.
Still a lot of people said that it just wasn’t the same without Chris Barrie, and of course the team just isn’t the same without him. Luckily it has been revealed today that all the boys from the Darf and some of the other stars will be there at the Comic Con in Wales on Sunday the 28th of April.
