The Full SP - by Andrew Ellard

10 December, 2004

It is, by now, getting a little tired to say that each Red Dwarf DVD release is exceeding the last. Still, I'm going to wheel out that comparison one more time for this, the full extras list for Red Dwarf VI. Have a goosey at these goodies!

No huge surprises this time, no last-minute additions that break the budget and drive the authoring house into a (justifiable) deep blue funk. Just everything we promised and everything we wanted - plus a cute tweak to the last of our animated Easter Eggs. Will it be everything you want, though? February 21st is the day to find out!

The pictures in this update are taken from some of the highlights of our extras this time around - Settling the Score, Return to Laredo, Andy de Emmony's interview, Nick Kool's delightful 8mm short, plus our luckiest find we ever found in the whole of today: the Series VI Behind the Scenes footage.

Content Confirmed

Still to come - the all-new Series VI menus! Exclusive screenshots from the latest evolution, which will see your options located aboard the wreck of a crashed Starbug. Plus there are chapter points and a full list of those all-important deleted scenes!
