Chris Barrie and Robert Llewellyn beaming in via Zoom – DJ XXI

As previously announced, due to work commitments, Robert Llewellyn (Kryten) is no longer able to attend Dimension Jump XXI in person this year. However, we are delighted to confirm today that his inimitable presence will still be felt as he’ll be beaming in to the convention for a live audience Q&A via Zoom.

We’re also announcing today that due to circumstances beyond anyone’s control, Chris Barrie (Rimmer) will no longer be appearing at DJ XXI in person, but will instead also join us for a live Q&A via Zoom.

We will of course miss seeing these Boys from the Dwarf in person, but we hope to have a virtual laugh with them, and will be offering as many DJ XXI attendees as possible the opportunity to ask their burning questions to both Chris and Robert via the big screens and roving microphones in the main hall.

As ever, guests appear at the official Red Dwarf convention subject to professional commitments. This is especially so after a very difficult 18 months for the entertainment and events sectors as a direct result of the pandemic. The Official Red Dwarf Fan Club team appreciates how disappointed you may feel by Chris and Robert’s in-person absence, but rest assured this posse of volunteers are doing their utmost to bring you the best possible experience.

You never know, we may still have a surprise or two up our sleeves…
