    so... I did a thread similar to this in about 2008 and got slated for it but the likes of Tex Rimmer and some kid called Jack Smith (remember them, anyone?)

    How different do you think Red Dwarf would have been if some of the key production decisions didn't happen?

    - what if Rob Grant stayed instead of Doug?
    - what if Rimmer stayed throughout series 7
    - what if Norman Lovett carried on? Would he have demanded more Holly eps or left by series 5 out of despair....

    Discuss....

    I assume Pembers means that Rob Grant did leave instead of Doug.

    Changed. Although Pembers usually adds little of "on-topic" relevance to most threads! :roll::roll::roll::roll:

    I think if Rob stayed RD 7-10 would have been a bit darker, look at his novel 'Backwards' very dark. I don't think he would have written any more after series 8.

    Had Rimmer been there throughout Series 7 I think Kochanski would still have come in to 'shake things up' and she and Rimmer would have been bickering more than her and Kryten. Rimmer would have spent a lot of time taunting Lister about 'her Dave' and how awesome he is.

    Had Norman carried on I think there would have been more lines/involvement from Holly in III-V due to his posturing, however I still think they would have got rid of him before VI.

    I think Rimmer would've also spent a lot of time taunting Lister about being his own father and Kochanski being his own mother if he'd been around during series 7 if that still happened.

    Unless we're still in it.
