James Bull

ROLE IN CLUB: Chairman, club accounts, DJ organiser and will do almost anything in the name of Red Dwarf.

FAVOURITE EPISODE: White Hole. It even has a toaster! Ok it’s bread obsessed, but Holly with 12,000 IQ is the best crumpet I’ve ever seen!

CRAZIEST THING YOU’VE DONE IN THE NAME OF RED DWARF: Spent a day filming for Sky TV on the history of Kryten, not so much crazy as an eye opener in the world of TV.

MOST TREASURED PIECE OF RED DWARF MEMORABILIA: I have quite a few but the best of the lot is an actual piece of the original ship from series V, from the episode Demons and Angels.

Kerry King-Neale

ROLE IN CLUB: Membership Co-Ordinator

FIRST SAW RED DWARF: 22nd Feb 1988. My Auntie Gena watched the first episode a week earlier and raved about it so I went to her house to watch “Future Echoes” the following week… and every week after that! Thank you, Auntie Gena!

FAVOURITE EPISODE: I can’t pick a favourite and you can’t make me! They’re all awesome!

CRAZIEST THING YOU’VE DONE IN THE NAME OF RED DWARF: I was reading “Back To Reality” and my grandson, Harry, chose it as a bedtime story so I read a censored version suitable for a then 3-year-old! I’ve also taught him several key phrases and his favourite is Cat’s “Owwww yeeeeaaah!”

MOST TREASURED PIECE OF RED DWARF MEMORABILIA: Leopard Lager bottle and beermats signed by Doug Naylor

CRAZIEST THING YOU’VE DONE IN THE NAME OF RED DWARF: Don’t know about crazy, but trying to educate students on the magnificence that is Red Dwarf.

Jez Harrison

ROLE IN CLUB: Merchandise Co-ordinator

FIRST SAW RED DWARF: Some point during the first series, I snook into the front room when i was supposed to be in bed and watched it from behind the settee.

FAVOURITE EPISODE: Who can have one favourite? – but I often bounce between ‘The End’ and ‘Marooned’.

CRAZIEST THING YOU’VE DONE IN THE NAME OF RED DWARF: Probably performing Marooned on stage in front of a shedload of people for a performing art piece.

MOST TREASURED PIECE OF RED DWARF MEMORABILIA: I have so many! Though the Remastered 1-3 Box set was my first ‘big’ thing, and the beginning of a era for me.

Alex Newsome

ROLE IN CLUB: Back to Reality Editor

FIRST SAW RED DWARF: I saw the last five minutes of Out Of Time in 93, and tracked down videos of older episodes from the local library.

FAVOURITE EPISODE: Marooned

CRAZIEST THING YOU’VE DONE IN THE NAME OF RED DWARF: Spending hours applying a bald cap and makeup to do a spoof video of Patrick Stewart’s appearance on Red Dwarf night to mark the 25th anniversary of the show.In truth, It’s not the work of a totally sane mind.

MOST TREASURED PIECE OF RED DWARF MEMORABILIA: A selection of bits Bill Pearson saved from the models for the Remastered project, like the Dwarf nameplates and Kryten model from inside the remastered Blue Midget model.

Joey Newsome

ROLE IN CLUB: PR and Dimension Jump Organiser

FIRST SAW RED DWARF: The very first time was sneaking a peek at series V when I was in school, before watching and re-watching videos every single night with my best friend

FAVOURITE EPISODE: Meltdown. I like to buck a trend!

CRAZIEST THING YOU’VE DONE IN THE NAME OF RED DWARF: Going to Dimension Jump 2K as a wee, painfully shy 17-year-old with a roommate I barely knew – it was an incredible weekend though, and I haven’t looked back!

MOST TREASURED PIECE OF RED DWARF MEMORABILIA: Not memorabilia exactly, but my partner made me a Mr Flibble finger puppet out of felt, and it’s just incredible.

Mick Hayes

ROLE IN CLUB: Art/Media Department

FIRST SAW RED DWARF: Saw the pilot with my parents in ’88 but didn’t see any again until the first VHS release of Series II.

FAVOURITE EPISODE: Stasis Leak

CRAZIEST THING YOU’VE DONE IN THE NAME OF RED DWARF: Running a Red Dwarf Bulletin Board in the early 90’s. The more exciting stuff you’ll have to ask me about in person.

MOST TREASURED PIECE OF RED DWARF MEMORABILIA: I’m not much of a collector in that sense, probably my talking Starbug model that breaks every time I breathe near it.

Shelley Smith

ROLE IN CLUB: Senior Staff Writer and Dimension Jump Organiser

FIRST SAW RED DWARF: Aged 9 back in 1992- my brothers were watching a repeat and I got hooked!

FAVOURITE EPISODE: The End-purely because I kept missing repeats so I was halfway through series 3 before I got to see it!!!

CRAZIEST THING YOU’VE DONE IN THE NAME OF RED DWARF: Teaching all the kids in my primary school class to call each other Smeghead by insisting on playing Red Dwarf every playtime. Thankfully my mum had no idea what it meant.

MOST TREASURED PIECE OF RED DWARF MEMORABILIA: My signed 25th anniversary DVD boxset.

Dan Pendleton

ROLE IN CLUB: Senior Staff Writer

FIRST SAW RED DWARF: Back in 1999 after Series 8 had already aired, all my friends were talking about it so my friend Sarah loaned me here RD videos. I started from the very beginning (well, The End).

FAVOURITE EPISODE: Tough question, it changes depending on my mood. At this current moment: Future Echoes because of its excellent use of editing to create a cool sci-fi concept. And it’s hilarious!

CRAZIEST THING YOU’VE DONE IN THE NAME OF RED DWARF: When travelling around Japan, and I was determined to find the Japanese Red Dwarf DVDs. Every city I went to, I spent hours going to every DVD store I could find. No DVDs. I ended up buying them online when I got home.

MOST TREASURED PIECE OF RED DWARF MEMORABILIA: I have a few bits but my most treasured is probably the photos I have with the cast/crew – particularly Rob Grant who I never thought I’d have the pleasure to meet.

Andy Holland

ROLE IN CLUB: Tech Co-Ordinator / Webmaster

FIRST SAW RED DWARF: My parents recall that I’d regularly sneak back downstairs after bedtime so I that could snuggle up on the sofa and watch the latest episode of Red Dwarf (and The Brittas Empire) with them. My first recollections are of Series VI (particularly Legion and Gunmen of the Apocalypse) but I’ve even more vivid memories of watching VII go out on a Friday and eagerly discussing it at school on the Monday.

FAVOURITE EPISODE: White Hole or Legion are my ‘go to’ episodes when I’m in need of a comforting Red Dwarf cuddle.

CRAZIEST THING YOU’VE DONE IN THE NAME OF RED DWARF: Running half way across London during my lunch hour to pick up a free bottle of Leopard Lager, and utilising split-screen wizardry to photograph myself drinking with… myself – a photograph that appeared in the Daily Mirror a week later.

MOST TREASURED PIECE OF RED DWARF MEMORABILIA: Aside from photos with the cast and crew, a gorgeous vintage Gunmen of the Apocalypse t-shirt which I’ve framed and mounted on my bedroom wall.

Ashley Woolston

ROLE IN CLUB: Art / Media Department

FAVOURITE EPISODE: It would either have to be Quarantine or Out of Time.

CRAZIEST THING YOU’VE DONE IN THE NAME OF RED DWARF: Hand painted an entire suit just to dress up as the future Kryten for the Dimension Jump Costume Competition – “Better anything than that toupee!”.

MOST TREASURED PIECE OF RED DWARF MEMORABILIA: I have a quiet a few items of memorabilia from the show but my most treasured piece would probably have to be my replica of Kryten’s head, closely followed by a model of Starbug.
