    I know that queeg was one of holys pracical jokes; jape of the decade :-) would there be a real backup computer though. If holy is out of action in the new shows, should a backup computer kick in?

    No they too Holly out for BtE because they cannot afford Norman so they only have him offline for now for if they make a new series they can bring him back when they have the budget (I believe that's what's happening)

    welll at the moment if they do do a new series its doubtful Holly will be played by Norman as Norman has said he can "no longer work with these people" such a shame.

    He said that? oh no, I remember now he said because he's not going to be in BtE he doesn't want to come at all (I think again)

    thats a shame, but i do feel he's almost over reacting. The budget probably is low, and they want to make the most of it for the show to make a good impression. Oh well, if thats how he feels guess we can't exactly change his mind. I'l miss him though.

    If they can't afford to pay him, why didn't they get a cheaper actress for the new hologram bird. I bet she doesn't come cheap. If they had of got an unknown to play her, maybe they could of had Norman too?

    To be fair, I've seen her in a few things, but so far they've mostly been small roles. And I have a feeling she'll be contributing more to the plot than Holly will.

    sadly for norman to come back their a lot of costs not just paying him. Theres a second red cam to have. a second unit. a HD screen to put him on. as it's set on earth it would be diffucult to take the screen on location. Theres a lot of costs not just paying Norman.
