Personal Quote:

[on trying to get Red Dwarf: The Movie made] "I'm going to turn over a New Year's resolution and just not trust anybody. I think it's probably the safest thing."


With Rob Grant, co-wrote two "Red Dwarf" novels, "Infinity Welcomes Careful Drivers" and "Better Than Life", under the "Grant Naylor" pseudonym (the dustcover bio describes Grant Naylor as a "gestalt entity" residing in the two writers' bodies). After Grant's departure, Doug wrote an additional "Red Dwarf" book, "The Last Human", under his own name. See more »
