    Hmmmm, let me think for a moment.

    1) Perhaps they could assign themselves some kind of mission for a season from which stories could be derived. Mission: Earth, Mission: Repaint the ship, Mission: Complete all the crossword puzzles.
    2) RD is big. They should go exploring. This means new sets = $
    3) They can meet nice GELFS, who end up getting destroyed by bad GELFS (following RD) just when things are looking up. New gelfs, not the ones we've already seen.
    4) Giant mutant plant escapes from the greenhouse area of the ship and wreaks havoc.
    5) New game gets out of hand (full contact tiddley winks, Laser Tag with real lasers, Headstone Dominos, etc...)
    6) Cat tries to learn engineering
    7) Visit more worlds
    8 ) Work less with Time travel, more with the teleporter. (makes 7 easier)
    9) Run across an unmanned deathfleet heading towards Earth, but they can't figure out why.
    10) They run out of coffee.

    I prefer new ideas to rehashed old ones. a little cameo here and there is fine, but too much is TOO MUCH! If I feel like seeing Dwayne Dibbley, or Mr. Flibble I just pop in a DVD.

    it did seem like doug was going for new ideas which was good, but to top that im hoping for no more hey remember when the crew got wiped out by me? remember when i was killed by the radiation leak? oh yeah lets talk about that and make jokes about it

    lets have new storys from times we haven't seen, to much nostalgia isn't good

    i really enjoyed seeing the dwarfers again. i understand everyone is getting old and its so hard to recapture the greatness of earlier series, but overall i think they are doing a great job. the only thing i would like to see, or actually not see, in what i hope will be future series is all the computer screens gone. all the info on the screens was sooooo distracting. it seems like all scifi has got to the point where they think there has to be a lot of background stuff going on. i don't think it helps. just my opinion.:-D

    My Wishlist (All IMHO:-(

    1. Make Pree a regular (Maybe Kryten's nanobots can fix her core program to make her more benevolent, but still annoying.)
    2. No more Medicomp. (Annoying, and not in a nice way.)
    3. Bring back Kochanski ONLY if they can make her funny, interesting, less prudish, and less focus on "boob jobs" and "Have nice periods!".
    4. Failing 3, bring in some other recurring female character. (I know sexual frustration is a main theme of RD, but at least give these poor guys HOPE!)
    5. Have at least one more ep. with Irene (I thought her fate was too cruel, and she could theoretically return as a hologram.)
    6. No more simulants, unless they're funny like Hogey. (I think in general they make the show too dark.)
    7. New forms of GELFs (the Kinotowai types are getting tiresome). I like the blobby kinds better.
    8. Character development for Cat and/or a Cat-centered episode.
    9. More Skutters
    10. More Cat-Kryten interaction (as in Entangled).

    More references to Greggs & its products. Maybe a planet run by clones of former Greggs employees? 8)

    Lets start seeing some real growth to the characters.

    I'd like to see more bits of the ship shot cunningly - like the botanic gardens or something looking like the one from Silent Running. Just have some garden centre for the set, would be enough to make the ship feel huge again. Observation dome? Those things were clever.

    Play up the retro-80's ness, make it a defining aesthetic.

    I think that Lister's dreads in RDX weren't as cool draped over his shoulders. Slightly effeminate even. Didn't they always used to hang down behind his head?

    1. The Old Series 1-7 (and Back To Earth) Red Dwarf Model/CGI Model
    2. More Starbug and Less Blue Midget
    3. A Revised version of Identity Within (an episode for the cat)
    4. Claire Grogan back as Kochanski
    5. Rimmer to have a new colour uniform like Green
    6. A Less Annoying Lister (seriously in RD10 he was acting like such a jerk)
    7. More Diffrent Ending Themes (Like The Hammond Organ, The Red Dwarf Cat Theme, The Alt. Cold Outside theme)
    8. Better Special Features for The Dvds
    9. Norman Lovellet back as Holly with better lines

    1. Holly (failing that, Pree or an equally good replacement).
    2. A Kryten or Cat-focussed episode (we haven't had one in a while, unless you count Entangled)
    3. The sets becoming a bit less busy (liked the red, but it was a bit bold)
    4. Skutters!!!
    5. A very brief explanation of the cliffhanger from Series VIII. It doesn't have to be much; it would just be nice to know for definite which Rimmer we have (my pet theory is that the Series VIII Rimmer went on to be the next Ace, and "our" Rimmer came back, but it's all in theory. Anyway, perhaps a big revelation would spoil the fun of speculation?).
    6. More "home-based" episodes. I like episodes where they go off exploring, but I don't want a whole series full of them.
    7. White Midget (because it very nearly was, but wasn't)
    8. Good jokes
    9. New stuff
    10. A nice bubbly feeling when the episode's over.

    I'm just going to ask for one as I'm not greedy, and that is:

    For it to be back on the BBC where it belongs.

    1. agree on Holly
    2. agree i was hoping that they could remake Identity Within and rewrite it
    3. i was hoping for the series 1/2/8 set or perhaps 3/4/5 set
    4. absoutely agree i missed seeing them in Series 10 and BTE only had the (badly) cgi Skutter
    5. Nope i dont want to see or hear any refrences to Series 7 or 8
    6. so a mixture of Bottle episodes with say 2 or 3 episodes set elsewhere
    7. it appeared in Series 7 Episode 3 Ouroboros
    8. making stuff funny is rather hard

    10. Agreed
