Personal Quote:

I certainly wouldn't want to not do the series and wait for this mythical movie. I'd rather just get on making a sitcom. Red Dwarf (1988) is a sitcom. Let's keep it as a sitcom, and do more of it. See more »

Trivia:

In addition to his abilities as a skilled actor, comedian and poet, he also had a stint as a professional footballer for Wirral club Tranmere Rovers. See more »
