Stasis Leaked Complete
The Unofficial Behind the Scenes Guide to
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.
Revealing the highs and lows of making the series: from wobbly sets in the beginning, to the critical success of an International Emmy Award. With episode synopses, chapters going behind the scenes on every episode and quotes from cast and crew. Including bonus chapters on: Red Dwarf Special Effects, Red Dwarf’s Missing Episodes, Red Dwarf USA and the ill-fated Red Dwarf Movie.
Concentrating on the BBC era of the show, it’s the essential, unofficial, guide to the brilliant space comedy.
About the Author
Jane Killick is a journalist and author who has written extensively about Red Dwarf in science fiction magazines, and was the main feature writer for the Red Dwarf Smegazine. She has spent time on set and on location with the production, conducted many interviews with the cast and with key members of the crew. This book is based on those interviews.
Reviews of Stasis Leaked Complete
I found myself itching to re-watch episodes as Killick retold fondly remembered moments, and I even dug out my credit card to fill in a gap in my collection when I realised I didnt have season nine on DVD… This should be on all Red Dwarf fans Christmas lists, as it fills in the gaps about how the show was made and what was going on behind those much loved scenes; a handy companion to have at hand while watching the episodes.Steve Rogerson
This book is a must for any Red Dwarf fan! If you think you know it all then you are probably wrong I know I was. I could not believe how much I had forgotten about the series, each chapter had me running to my DVDs partly because it made me desperate to re-watch the episodes I had just read about and partly to confirm Jane’s accuracy (she always turned out to be right).
The style is easy to read and not at all dry as some guides can be. The personal touches which can only be made by someone who is not only well informed but who was actually there for some of the time make the book even more compelling.Frankie
