This book is effectively the sequel to Primordial Soup, and so as such it’s just a collection of six more of “the least worst scripts” from the cult favourite sci-fi show. It’s not going to make much sense if you read it out of context, but it’s a great read for a die-hard fan who’s seen every episode, like myself.

In this collection, then, we have the scripts for Gunmen of the Apocalypse, Holoship, Camille, Backwards, Kryten and Me2, and that in itself is pretty cool because it gives you an interesting cross-section of different series. It’s also interesting to see some of the bits that were cut out from the final shows, which makes it an Easter egg fest for viewers of the show.

All in all, not for everyone – but pretty good if you’re already a fan of the series.

This is another of the obscure Red Dwarf books that I picked up from a car boot sale, and it was certainly a bargain when you consider what I paid for it. It takes you behind the scenes for the shoot of the infamous Gunmen of the Apocalypse episode, complete with high-quality photos by Nobby Clark. It won’t make that much sense to you if you don’t watch the show, but it’s great for fans.
