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 book is a collection of the scripts to some of the fan favourite Red Dwarf episodes, so if you’ve ever seen the cult favourite sci-fi comedy show then you should know roughly what you’re letting yourself in for. And if you haven’t then I’m not really sure what you’re doing with this book.

Included here are the scripts to Polymorph, Marooned, Dimension Jump, Justice, Back to Reality and Psirens, and you also get a bunch of photographs of the cast and crew – although most of them are just stills from the show. What I found most interesting of all was the fact that I was able to spot a few differences between the script and the finished show because I’d grown up with it.

Overall then, this isn’t for everyone, but if you like Red Dwarf then you’ll love this. That’s all I have to say.
