I Will Not Be A Prize!

And now, it's competition time. Tum-tum-tum-tum-tum-tum-tuuuuuuuum! Heh, yes indeed, Mr and Mrs reader, you could win a [huh] night on the town with Spare Head Three [waugh], or a copy of the Red Dwarf IV DVD (your choice of region) - the choice isn't yours. [Oookh, it's horrible in that bag, it smells of SMEG.] The questions are as follows; I suspect you can all guess which series they are about...

  1. Listing each episode in turn, what was the order of episodes for the 94 repeat run?
  2. In The Official Red Dwarf Companion, which episode is the model shot wrongly attributed to Back To Reality actually from?
  3. What is "K177"?
  4. To what logic puzzle is Barbara Bellini and her pod a reference to?
  5. Which name is misspelled in the end credits in Red Dwarf IV?
  6. The opening credits to Red Dwarf IV contain several shots from Series III. Which clip in the opening credits is a modification of a shot from that series, and what is different about it?
  7. On which stage at Shepperton did Red Dwarf IV shoot?
  8. What is blamed for the sudden deterioation in Holly's condition in White Hole?
  9. The first part of D.N.A. was shot without the studio audience present. Why?
  10. The dome on Io as seen at the start of Dimension Jump was used in which other episode of Red Dwarf?

As before, answers should be sent to compo@ganymede-titan.info; and they need to arrive no later than Friday 23rd January. And even if you don't know all the answers, have a bash. You never know.

EMOHAWK.

"And even if you don't know all the answers, have a bash."

I read that as "have a bath", which is better.

I shan't be entering this one, I've leeched enough. One query though:

"Which name is misspelled in the end credits?"

That's a bit vague, isn't it?

It's vague, but I *think* there is only one misspelled credit in Series IV. If there is more than one, any of them will do.

This will be the last competition for bloody ages (I suspect the next will be when the V DVD comes out); anyone's welcome to enter, even if you won before. It's slightly strange doing another so soon, but it's just how release dates for great stuff has worked out.

If anyone knows more than 50% of those answers I suggest you get laid.

Posted by Joey at January 17, 2004 11:02 AM

Is that with you joey? If it makes you better i think i got around 60%

Posted by Stephen at January 17, 2004 12:43 PM

Already preordered it. Plus, much to my shame and ignomony, I don't know all the answers. Will I never challenge Symes as all-round smart arse?

And all my Uni friends think I'm anal...

My 'Incompetence' book arrived today! Wahey!

Posted by Darrell Jones at January 17, 2004 02:08 PM

All you gits can surely cancel the pre-order if you win? This is one reason why I've only given a week for people to answer.

I'd try anyway, even if you don't know all the answers. They can be found either in the episodes or on the net, with a bit of searching...

Incidentally, to show how kind I am, this is one of the questions I considered putting in, but didn't: "Which episode of Series IV had a slight interference problem during transmission on the 94 repeat run?"

Posted by John Hoare at January 17, 2004 02:14 PM

Listing each episode in turn, what was the order of episodes for the 94 repeat run?

Don't know

In The Official Red Dwarf Companion, which episode is the model shot wrongly attributed to Back To Reality actually from?

I'll take a guess uhh...."Terrorform"?

What is "K177"?

No idea

To what logic puzzle is Barbara Bellini and her pod a reference to?

I don't know the mame that well "Don't chose the knife"?


Which name is misspelled in the end credits?

Peterson, (Misspelt "Petersen")

The opening credits contain several shots from Series III. Which clip in the opening credits is a modification of a shot from that series, and what is different about it?

I think the "Bodyswap" is different, theres no planet in the titles but there is in the episode?

On which stage at Shepperton did Red Dwarf IV shoot?

No idea

What is blamed for the sudden deterioation in Holly's condition in White Hole?


Talkie Toaster
The first part of DNA was shot without the studio audience present. Why?


Dunno...

The dome on Io as seen at the start of Dimension Jump was used in which other episode of Red Dwarf?

The Inquisitor!!!

Erm, you're not supposed to post your answers up here...

At least it's given any potential entrants a head-start.

Posted by Darrell Jones at January 17, 2004 03:21 PM

I'm still trying to work out whether MJN is a parody or not.

Meanwhile, I've changed both credits questions to specifically mention IV as it was causing confusion (even though the paragraph before the questions more or less says that that's which series all the questions refer to).

Posted by John Hoare at January 17, 2004 03:50 PM

Joey - what about the people who set the questions?

Darrell - Blimey, I only posted it yesterday. Royal Mail is ace!

Posted by Ian Symes at January 17, 2004 05:20 PM

Ian, you're a goit.

Posted by Joey at January 18, 2004 02:47 PM

I can exclusively reveal that we're getting TONS of ENTRIES, and the SITE is really POPULAR.

However, don't let that stop you entering! We need all the fucking entries we can ge- I mean, you've not got much of a chance, as we've had LOADS, but you might as well try! PLEASE!

Posted by John Hoare at January 18, 2004 02:51 PM

Hmm...I actually have all the episodes taped from the 1994 repeat one so I could answer that one if I was arsed to go and look...some of those questions are a tad hard tho.

Posted by Adam Bailey at January 18, 2004 05:29 PM

All those questions can be answered by either stuff on the net, or by watching the episodes. I'll give you a clue - the 94 repeat run information *is* on the net, somewhere...

Man, it's not that hard!

Posted by John Hoare at January 18, 2004 05:32 PM

I'm planning on getting mine in, but I'm taking my time on this one. The 94 repeat info is the question I'm stuck on, at the moment, I think I've got all the others right so far.

Posted by Austin Ross at January 18, 2004 06:48 PM

Amusingly, there is an article with that exact information uploaded to G&T right at the moment - I just haven't made the article live yet (in part because it would ruin the question, and in part because it needs revising to, you know, be actually good and stuff).

Like I said though, the 94 repeat run info is on the net somewhere, although it might not be phrased quite like that...
