Robert Llewellyn has played Kryten since Series 3, so for the full story of Red Dwarf, you'll have to hold out for the Danny John-Jules Magnum Opus (because let's face it, Craig Charles won't remember much of it), but while we wait, there is much to enjoy in this updated memoir. For one thing, Llewellyn is the only member of the UK cast to take part in the ill fated US pilot, and this gives him a unique insight into the workings of the Rob Grant/Doug Naylor partnership.
Being the wishy-washy liberal that he is, Llewellyn forever apologises for things that aren't his fault, gives due warning when a luvvy moment is coming up (I saw the back of Keira Knightley's neck. Twice.) but thankfully knows his audience well enough to know when to talk about certain things, and when to stop.
There are generous nods to Scrapheap Challenge, Carpool, How Do They Do It?, i Camcorder (I remember that), and many other side projects, also sideswipes at his long suffering family, but this is firmly a Red Dwarf book. If I were to criticise at all, I would say that the extra 43.17% extra smeg spends too long on Series X and not enough time on previous series, but that's hardly a problem. It would have been easy to go back and listen to the DVD commentaries and bodge together a book off the back off them, but Bobby has a huge amount of respect for his fans, and any fan of Kryten will love this.
