    I am not Alan Partridge.

    Coogan made something of a cameo appearance in Zapped. I was just wondering whether, with the fact there have been some major guest stars over the years, and with the Baby Cow link, whether there is a likelihood of a Coogan making an appearance in Red Dwarf, and how people would feel about that?

    I am a Coogan fan, but I realise that he is a different type of comedy and not to everyone's taste.

    I love Partridge so would be very happy if he did. I don't think its totally out of the question.

    He should appear as himself, apologising for letting Doug hand in first drafts as the shooting scripts.

    Remind us, how many scripts have you written that get two million viewers !

    Quality over quantity. If I handed in a script that was as banally and lazily offensive as Timewave, I'd expect to be asked if I really wanna continue on.

    Why does Series 2 get so much stick? It's hilarious!

    What I like about Coogan is he generally likes an understated cameo - I am thinking Hot Fuzz, and the 'alright' as he walks off in Zapped was funny and perfect! Many big stars would really want to steal any scene they were in.

    I wonder what the story between Baby Cow and Red Dwarf is? Does it go back to Spitting Image? I thought that Doug would have left as a writer before Coogan joined. I suppose Coogan and Chris Barrie must have worked together on it. It is funny to think that the stable that gave us Boosh is the home of Red Dwarf - but then I guess if a production company only did one type of comedy it would not last the changing tides of tastes.

    I would imagine I t’s nothing to do with Coogan it’s the producer Henry Normal

    Lynn! Lynn! Hello, Lynn? I’ve been eating a lot of crispy bars.

    And I don't mean the small ones, I mean the medium-sized ones.
