The long-awaited STASIS LEAKED COMPLETE: THE UNOFFICIAL BEHIND THE SCENES GUIDE TO RED DWARF is finally here. The book grew into a mammoth 326 pages and 95,000 words, so took a lot longer than I was expecting. It covers all the behind-the-scenes details of every episode of the series, concentrating on the BBC years of the show. Here’s all the official details:
Stasis Leaked Complete: The Unofficial Behind the Scenes Guide to Red Dwarf by Jane Killick
Based on interviews with the cast and crew, this book goes behind the scenes of the successful space comedy, Red Dwarf. With chapters on every episode, it reveals how the series was made, and tells the stories of what happened on and off set.
Why did Holly leave?
How did Cat lose his teeth?
What happened when the writers split up?
All these questions are answered, and more.
How did a show that was rejected three times become a success? Why did Holly change from a man to a woman? What happened when Rimmer got covered in baby oil?
Stasis Leaked Complete goes behind the scenes of the TV space comedy Red Dwarf to answer all these questions and more. Based on interviews with the cast and crew, it reveals the highs and lows of making the series: from the early days of wobbly sets, to the critical acclaim of an International Emmy Award.
