Agreed! For me, classic Dwarf is series 1-6. Everything after that was sub-standard, even if there was some decent moments mixed in with the dross. Series 7-8 and BTE all suffered from their own unique flaws, but the one thing they all have in common was they lacked the crisp writing, acting that was OTT just enough to be hilarious, and not so much that it was cringe inducing as it so often was post series 6, and the warmth of the characters'/plots that made the first 6 series' such a delight. So going with that, I definitely don't want to see Kochanski back in series X. Although not for the sexist reasons given earlier in this thread. Whilst I agree that actual jokes/plotlines from earlier series' shouldn't be recycled. the essence of what made those first 6 series' so great must be recaptured I feel, in order for Red Dwarf to return to it's former glory.
