Rampant rumors have been circulating around the internets this past week, many the direct result of a Craig Charles appearance last week on ITV This Morning.

As we begin to gear up for the upcoming new set of Red Dwarf, which films November 2011 – February 2012, a completely light-hearted twitter war between cast members has erupted.

The Man in the Rubber Mask

Powell’s Bookstore in downtown Portland. Bookstore mecca. Billed as the largest new, used and out-of-print bookstore on the planet, it occupies a full city block with over 3500 sections and over 68,000 square feet of nothing but books.

I'm convinced Craig Ferguson secretly wants to be 12th Doctor

On the heels of Sunday’s tellyspotting post of an early Craig Ferguson appearance on Red Dwarf, we learned from CBS Entertainment (thankfully, in time) that last night’s Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson was to be a full-blown special edition Doctor Who-themed episode with guest Matt Smith, the 11th Doctor on Doctor Who.  The show […]

Craig Ferguson on Red Dwarf

With so much hype surrounding the return of Conan this past week to the latenight battlefield, I almost forgot how much I really, really enjoy The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson.
