Red Dwarf

Kryten (Robert Llewellyn) special effects head - Beyond a Joke



An original Kryten head created during the production of Red Dwarf, the BBC science fiction comedy series created by Rob Grant and Doug Naylor.

This head was created for the Series VII episode Beyond a Joke specifically for use in the scene where Kryten's (Robert Llewellyn) head explodes after Lister (Craig Charles) requests brown sauce to accompany his lobster. The head was created by the BBC Visual Effects Department and is constructed from thick wax which has been painted to resemble Kryten, the transition between actor Robert Llewellyn and the special effects head which is blown up is clearly visible on screen with this being a unused back up for use in the event that the shot did not go to plan on the first take.

The head stands approximately 12" high and remains in excellent production made condition with some minor paint wear, generally fine. With the masks worn by Llewellyn being prosthetics usually ruined by removal this represents a rare opportunity to acquire a Kryten head of solid construction with none of the issues associated with prosthetics.

An instantly recognisable and highly displayable artefact from this cult science fiction series.
