    That's what people I think would find hard to grasp sadly, it not going back to Series I or II with it's wobbling sets etc etc. Television has evolved, and with Back to Earth, so did Red Dwarf. So I think if a new series were to happen [which as we know is looking more likely] it would have to maintain the new standard of visual presentation, while probably being a mixture of all 3 formats they've used. The comedy from I-VI, drama from VII and BtE, and hybrid from VIII.

    A new series would be longer than a movie. :-)

    If there is a new series, considering that Norman has said goodbye to Red Dwarf permanently, who agrees with me that Hattie should return as Holly?

    Well if we can't have Norman then Hattie gets my vote

    I didnt miss holly that much in series 6 to 7, tbh. If Holly was to come back I think it would be an obvious decision to get Hattie. How would you explain it though? Holly comes back in series 8 but remembers that he prefered to be a female holly so changes back to that for series 9?

    If Series 9 gets set after Back To Earth, it could be attiributed to water damage. After being dried out some of Holly's systems were damaged or whatever and it resulted in Holly reverting back to a female form.

    I think Holly should only return though if he/she has some actual purpose. Holly for Holly's sake wouldn't be right. Holly was a great character who was usurped, and as thus the role became unnecessary. I would like to see him/her back, but only if they are going to actaully play a role.

    would you say holly had a role in series 5? I still have mixed feelings she only seemed to do simple functions in series 5 although she did save the crew in back to reality.

    Her role was minimal. If she was brought back for a role like that, I would say no Holly. It really is just a case of trying to find a place to slot her in, and thus she wasn't about in Series VI. Really it was just saving the crew that she did. Oh, and losing the plot in Demons & Angels when the Dwarf was blowing up. She had a few good lines, but not enough to justify a return under those standards.

    Hopefully Holly will return with a bigger role though.

    I would prefer Norman, but Hattie is a close second.
