Re: Red Dwarf series 9 (or is it 10?) in 2012 confirmed by Craig Charl
^ I could not work out if he was joking or not, it seemed very bitter.
Yeah, I got the impression that he was genuinely annoyed about how the situation had been handled. Seems like it may have been a case of six of one, half a dozen of the other though. Naylor probably should have been more forthcoming about whether Lovett would get a part, and Lovett probably should have been a bit more patient and less demanding when asking. Either way, unless something has changed over the last 18 months, I can't see him appearing in the new series.
