Clare plays the Kochanski that Lister would actually fancy
Chloe plays the Kochanski that would be a navigation officer.
Maybe they are both two sides of the same personality and we only see them come out in certain situations … but I honestly can’t see Lister actually falling for the sort of Kochanski we see in Series VII … maybe VIII but there’s very little character to see of her in those episodes unless a “ooooh a woman” joke needs to be made.
I didn’t find either funny. I didn’t think either could act particularly well (perhaps because the part was one-dimensional?) But I prefer Crogan’s Kochanski. Because she featured in it less. Because she was a plot device/maguffin, and not a prominent character.
Perhaps because I like the first two series the best.
Perhaps because I am sexist?
Perhaps because I am evil??!!
Oh no! I’m the devil because I like Clare Grogan’s acting…!
