Honestly, someone I’ve never heard of. Red Dwarf was my introduction to Don Warrington and Jenny Agutter, so they were fine, but for all the joy of their performances, seeing Kevin Eldon and Johnny Vegas in Red Dwarf sort of brought me out of the reality of it a little.

Yeah I felt this. Would prefer guest stars to just be random people for the most part, or at least not so famous they could/do star in their own shows.
The show should be about the comedy, the characters and the story (not always necessarily in that order), having other famous people in every episode playing a character anyone else could have played is just … I dunno, wrong.
I’d like someone known for being sort of a more serious actor, not someone that’s a household name or anything, but someone with a bit of gravitas. Denis Lill straight menace.
Maybe try and get a proper big name too.
I watched too much of a terrible film on Netflix last night that Duncan Jones directed, called Mute. Awful. But it had Paul Rudd in it. Seems like he’ll do most things. Ask him while he’s filming a Marvel film at Pinewood.
They could get Hattie in playing someone else if she actually feels like she’s aged out of the part. There was an episode of Enterprise where Brent Spiner played a character called Arik Soong who was a descendant of Noonian Soong who created Data, whether you think that was good or not I don’t know, but serves the point that she’s a perfectly capable actor and can do other roles. Also given she’s Holly they might finally do a female character that doesn’t die for no reason or get perved on for 28 minutes.
