There seems to be no mention of Kochanski being in the new specials which is a shame as personally I thought Chloe Annett was a refreshing addition to series 7-8. The earlier series of Red Dwarf were the best and I wouldn't have minded so much if the producers had gone back to the original four main characters but removing Kochanski and replacing her with this female hologram Katerina just seems a shame. Hopefully Sophie Winkleman will fit in well though and Im looking forward to seeing how they explain Kochanski's absence. She's most likely dead again.
