Re: Red Dwarf series 9 (or is it 10?) in 2012 confirmed by Craig Charl
^I think parts of 8 were, some like 7 were just shown to audiences and their laughter recorded. But in my opinion 7 and BTE are the worst and neither were filmed with an audience, so perhaps that's a clue as to it being better of with an audience.
As for filming early this year, that was the rumour but contracts didn't get sorted, and Craig Charles has commitments with Coronation Street, so I assume that's the reason for the change.
You sit around here and you spin your little webs and you think the whole world revolves around you and your money. Well, it doesn't, Mr. Potter. In the whole vast configuration of things, I'd say you were nothing but a scurvy little spider!
