Episode 64: Red Dwarf Interview Special with Doug Naylor and Richard Naylor

In this very special episode of Two Geeks, we had a fantastic chat with geek hero – Red Dwarf co-creator, director and writer Doug Naylor, and producer Richard Naylor.

In our third interview special (check out our Jamie Anderson and Nicholas Briggs episodes too), we spoke to Doug and Richard about their brand new feature-length Red Dwarf episode The Promised Land, the future of Dwarf, unanswered questions and more.

Despite us all being on lockdown, it was fantastic being able to speak to Doug and Richard over video chat – and we hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed recording it.

And make sure to check out our previous Red Dwarf-themed episode, when Tom took Morgan through a potted history of the sci-fi sitcom.

As ever, stay home, stay safe, and we’ll be back sooner than usual with our next regular episode.

Episode 63: Armageddon

Now, we didn’t plan this, but our next episode is all about a movie that delves into the end of the world. Whoops.

Yep, it’s time for Tom to teach Morgan all about 1998 Michael Bay/Bruce Willis disaster movie explosion fest Armageddon! AKA the highest grossing movie of 1998.

In the episode, we discuss the film’s frankly amazing cast, Ben Affleck’s hilarious disparaging DVD commentary, and we hear Morgan’s Donald Trump impression. What more could you want?

We recorded this episode before the whole coronavirus pandemic became a thing, but we reckon it’s strangely apt to be discussing something so… end of the world-y. So, at least whatever’s happening in your life right now, at least the fate of the world isn’t in the hands of Bruce Willis and his oil drilling pals.

Podcasts can be a great comfort or distraction in times like these, so while we’re sure everyone has bigger concerns, we hope we can provide some small feeling of comfort and a bit of a giggle.

All the best from both of us, stay safe.

Episode 58: Highlander

This time, Morgan teaches noob Tom about the entire history of the Highlander franchise, from its classic Queen-soundtracked first movie, to its dreadful sequel, and its many spinoffs and follow-ups.

Hear Tom get more exasperated with each new iteration, how he forgot Morgan’s birthday and why Colin isn’t an action hero name. Sorry, Colin.

There’s also an interview clip from when Morgan met Christopher Lambert, and a special competition where YOU could win an awesome prize!

Episode 56: Blake’s 7

In this episode, Morgan teaches Tom all about the history of slightly-naff but underrated ’70s sci-fi gem Blake’s 7.

We look at the show’s amazing theme music (and how Pulp ripped it off), we record Tom’s live reaction to its iconic cliffhanger ending and Morgan gives a stab at recording the first Two Geeks single.

Episode 54: Nicholas Briggs Special

Morgan and Tom sat down with the voice of the Daleks himself, Nicholas Briggs!

Nicholas spoke in depth about his love for all things Doctor Who, including his work on Audio Visuals, Myth Makers and many Big Finish Productions audio dramas.

The geek hero reveals awkward moments meeting Doctor Who legends, how he assumed Andy Serkis would voice the Daleks instead of him, and the projects he’d love to make if he got the rights.

Episode 52: Buffy the Vampire Slayer

We travel back to the late ’90s and one of the greatest teen sci-fi shows of all time. Morgan reminds Tom just why Buffy and the Scooby Gang were so great.

We remember its kickass theme tune, our several man crushes and when Anthony Head made Tom feel very stupid.

Episode 50: Tom vs Morgan (Donnie Darko vs Temple of Doom)

For our 50th episode, we’re doing something a little different.

We picked a classic cult icon each that one of us loves but the one hates, in the hopes of convincing them they’re wrong. Considering we usually agree on all things geek, it was a hard task just finding two things in the first place.

In the end, we plumped for Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (which Tom hates) and Donnie Darko (which Morgan hates). But… WHO. WILL. WIN?

What’s worse? Willie Scott screaming for two hours or pretentious timey-wimey nonsense?

Hear our pitches as to why the other one is wrong, and find out who came out victorious.
