No. Not with IDW. For all sorts of reasons - it's another writer's draft, so GNP'd have to pay for it a second time to use it (them's the rules); it was rewritten since the draft used on the DVD by ANOTHER guest writer; the series has moved on in style and tone since Series VII; Doug's not really a writer to look back, he has too many ideas to want to stop and re-investigate one that got dropped... My personal opinion, also, is that IDW is a fascinating mis-step. It's not actually a story that 'works'. For me, it doesn't work as a Cat story. Not the Cat we know and love. It's a little too generic, a little too Trek. The cat species isn't investigated at all, making Aura (a Cat with a name rather than a title, also wrong-feeling) just 'the female of whatever race you come from'. The cat history has Lister as God, it has creationist versus evolution allegory coming out of its ears, it has the potential for fascinating characters. What do we get? A confident and capable female. Not a very original character. The ep has some interesting ideas, but never really finds a comic set-piece that really sings. And with such a big setting, that's a huge omission. (Even Duct Soup - the supposedly small story - found some of those.) I also don't much care for the ease by which Cat's mate is found - the moment he needs one, which is odd given how long we've been waiting to see one - nor the suggestion that the universe is now massively populated. By GELFs of all kinds, sure, but it suggests a busy universe. Even the Kinitawowi seemed like a small, limited group. Oh, and it needed a B-plot, really. Something Lister and Rimmer-y, to off-set how odd the episode was feeling with them marginalised. (Even the so-called Holly episodes - Queeg and White Hole - are as much based around by Lister/Rimmer conflicts.) But that's all just me. I'm sure if Doug fancied reviving it, none of what I've said here would matter. But then I'm also sure it wouldn't be revived...or it is was, it'd be rewritten to the point of being unrecognisable.
