ENJOY!

Yes, RDXI is now TX-ing and I have to say I am rather pleased with the results of our hard work over the winter. For me it is always interesting to see the post production – model shots and CGI work, and the respective teams have done a superb job.

I very much look forward to hearing your reactions to the series at various events through the autumn and winter. Speaking of which, I am very regularly contacted with a view to attending future events, many of which are new. Please accept my sincerest apologies for not managing to reply to all of these enquirers, but there is simply not enough time for this to happen. At the back end of September I returned to Glasgow for the first time in about 6 years, courtesy of MCM Comic Con. I enjoyed a fantastic two days, meeting some great people and will certainly be returning well before another 6 years have elapsed. I am not sure the London-Glasgow rail journey has improved much over the last 40 years but that is a discussion for another day/website. Suffice to say I travelled with Hattie Hayridge and Sylvester McCoy, both lovely and entertaining people, and their company made the shortcomings of the railway much more bearable.

29/30th October – MCM London
19th/20th November – MCM Birmingham
4th December – Cleethorpes Comic Con

Earlier in 2015, I took up the role of Patron for the anti-bullying campaign I Cosplay. Being a regular convention guest, the Cosplay world is very familiar to me. Coupling this with 28 years of playing Arnold Rimmer, (who let’s face it has been on the receiving end of more than his fair share of bullying!), I am possibly an suitable person to be involved with the charity.

I need to clarify that I do not have Twitter or Facebook accounts, so if you do see or hear of a Chris Barrie on either of the two, it definitely isn’t me. As some of you know, I struggle to keep up with the webmail, without wanting to further disappoint anyone on social media.

Best wishes,

Chris Barrie
