Hot on the heels of yesterday’s Red Dwarf Broadcast date announcement comes the news that … there was no broadcast date announcement. Chris Barrie was horribly misquoted.
The error caused a lot of difficulty for writer, director and producer Doug Naylor who spent most of his day in heated debate with the journalist while also explaining the situation to fans.
A group of fans present at the event Chris spoke at clearly remember him saying that the cast would probably finish FILMING in March, which does not mean it would be broadcast then finally cleared the air.
Being reported in the press I said Red Dwarf XI wasn't being broadcast next year. NOT TRUE. All I said was TX wasn't as early as March.
