Involvement with Red Dwarf


Nigel Williams portrayed the character Legion in the eponymous episode of Series VI of Red Dwarf. The episode was recorded on 27th February 1993, and broadcast on 14th October the same year.[1]

The Legion costume was so tight that Williams had to be sewn into it, a process which took eight hours. In post-production, Williams also provided the voice-over for the character.[2]
