    For me, it would have to be the time wand. I felt there was so much potential there to use the wand, with all its different capabilities, yet it was wasted serving as a plot device to bring a dinosaur to life.

    Kochanski.

    Not sure about which character though. *face*

    Obviously the answer is: none.

    Pree, or maybe Rebecca Blackstone playing another character.

    David Ross’ Kryten in a story where the crew discover their ‘legit’ selves in a parallel universe.

    Lister would be played by Chiwetel Ejiofor,
    Rimmer by Alexander Armstrong,
    the Cat by Paterson Joseph,
    Kryten by Brent Spiner,
    Kochanski by Emily Watson.
    Holly by Norman Lovett (cause Norm’s legit, innit)

    Paddy… YES. Those sound effects were lovely.
    I’d like to see Lister smoking again, so a cigarette. And I’d like to see him walking around in shorts and a t-shirt… I’m not sure why. It seemed very natural. But that’s more ‘costume’ than ‘props’.
    Lister’s Paranoia might be a nice character to have back. He never really got enough screen time to stretch his wings. Though I am against seeing a return from Confidence.

    I haven’t liked Craig Ferguson since Jerry Sadowitz accused him of plagiarism. Which, to be honest, is probably worth re-evaluating.

    cigarette is a good call. there hasn’t been a smoking incedent on rd for a bit. and the inflatable banana. maybe it bursts from the cigarette.

    also maybe the costumes from the restaurant scene in btl. plus ‘androids’: rd hasn’t explored its show within a show enough yet. itchy and scratchy. inspector spacetime. the show in hyperdrive

    So wait……you want a 9/11 episode? That’s pretty on the nose for a lot of reasons, I mean that would be about as tasteful as an episode that pokes fun of the gassing of the Jewish people in WW2. At least Tikka to Ride danced that fine line to keep it respectful to JFK. Further more I think we all wanna forget anything from the Pete episodes, which is why I would rather avoid any mention on the time wand honestly.

    While I would like the show to look to the future and not trade in on past glories (We really don’t need another Emohawk or Dibbley Family), however I wouldn’t mind seeing the Scutters again…..provided then they are better used then they were in series 8.

    I dunno, it could be recycled for a different plot. Something like Futurama’s Meanwhile’s time button or a really interesting idea that Naylor hasn’t thought of yet.

    Although at this point the Dwarfers might have a vault somewhere on board containing a stasis leak, time slides, TARDIS, time drive, zomb-e Cassandra, time wand, quantum rod and rejuvenation shower ready to explode into a massive white time hole that Taiwan Tony draws his strength from.

    Not fussed about Paranoia coming back, but Lee Cornes returning would be nice.

    > Lee Cornes returning would be nice.

    Hmmm. Cornes has a tendency to be a bit OTT for me. See ‘Dick Head’ of Bottom. ‘Bin Man’ of Filthy Rich & Catflap. And anything else Lee Cornes has ever done. (Apart from Paranoia of Red Dwarf.)

    Other exceptions welcome.

    Ah yes – that was very good. I’ve a strong memory of it being about American trucks… I haven’t seen it for a long time.
    Speaking of 15 Stories, Errol was big in The Martian. Wasn’t he.

    I’d forgotten about that character. I like him as the “cheese cheese cheese cheese cheese cheese macaroni…” man as well.

    #212823

    Who was the “cheese cheese cheese cheese cheese cheese macaroni…” man, and what was he in?

    I thought he was weak in Blackadder. But he was quite suited to Jack and Jeremy’s Real Lives. He played the kitchen boy quite well. So it’s hard to pin down.

    And I just remembered he was in Blackadder more than once… As the poet & as the Scarlet Pimpernel’s assistant (in series 3) I thought he was weak. As the German guard (in series 2) I thought he was good.
    And he was in The Young Ones in an Alexei bit in the medieval one. And he was okay.

    This is too complicated.

    15 Storeys High. The Sean Lock sitcom thing, which i’m rapidly warming to. Benedict Wong is hilarious in it.

    I’m sure Lee Cornes is in Goes Forth as well but I can’t remember which episode or his character. He’s not in the Scarlett Pimpernel one though. That’s Nigel Planer.

    Just watched your clips, Clem, cheers. I remember him now.
    And if anyone had said that Kim Benson, from the same scene, was in 15 Storeys as well, I wouldn’t have been able to place her. I wouldn’t have even known her name. You would have had to have said she was the woman who played Gary Olsen’s workmate in ‘2point4 Children’.

    She could have been good in the first 2 series of Red Dwarf. As Rimmer’s line manager or something. Actually, that’s sounding more like series 8.

    The curry Lister was eating in Waiting for God.

    Cat’s shiny thing.

    The flakes Lister pulled out of the cigarette.

    The cake that was supposed to be roast beef.

    Chicken marengo.

    The shaving foam from Lister’s armpit.

    A piece of the exploded “Confidence” recovered from deep space.

    Rimmer’s old toenail clippings that Lister mentioned in Me2.

    The wig that makes Rimmer look like a complete and total tit.

    No, no, no. Rimmer wasn’t wearing a wig. It was probably just gel.

    Sim Crawford is technically still on the ship, right? (Assuming she wasn’t dumped out of an airlock between episodes.)

    If she somehow got rebooted after an antivirus purge* that could lead to an interesting episode. Or a really awful episode, come to think of it.

    *How or why? The lads need her for something, or simulants elsewhere, wishing revenge for the destruction of the Death Ship, etc, detect her presence and boot her up remotely…

    A team up between first generation and current generation model simulants if you like.

    Would be an interesting visual if part of the ship had thousands of burnt out skutters piled up somewhere that have broken over the course of three million years.

    (Then you can revive them for a zombie episode.)

    I’ve always wanted to see the meteor that crashed into the ship, but from the inside, hollowed out from years of improvised mining training. Held together with scaffolding and reinforcement. I just think it would make an interesting visual.
