    One that would make for plausible casting: try Confidence as Epideme and vice-versa.

    Going for "plausible" again... how about Legion and Butler? Their introductory scenes are very similar, before the stories go in different directions.

    Ooh... Pree and Queeg would be a seamless swap!

    EDIT: One reason, I think, why Fathers and Suns feels like a classic Dwarf ep to me.

    Cassandra and Pree would be an interesting swap. They're similar characters on paper, but done in different styles with different casting. So swapping them would work, but the episodes would feel quite different.

    For minimal disruption, I'd swap Ron "Taxman" Pember and Graham "Ackerman" McTavish.

    Or I'd fuse them into a single antagonist, called Gron "Tackerman" McPemberish.

    For maximum surrealness, how about swapping JFK and Hackhackhack Ach Hachhachach - Lister's GELF bride from Emohawk?

    <HACKHACKHACK swallows the last of her bottle of Coke and sets it down. LISTER hands her what looks like an M-16 rifle, and nods towards the street meaningfully.>

    [MONTAGE. We see the parade roll through the main street once again; Oswald lining up his shot from the sixth floor of the Texas Book Depository and HACKHACKHACK tracking her own vehicle as it moves slowly down the road. Oswald fires his first two shots, wounding the president as before. This time, however, HACKHACKHACK takes aim from the grassy knoll - firing her shot moments after Oswald's third...

    HACKHACKHAK lowers the gun and turns away, clearly disturbed, but unreadable beyond that.]

    HACKHACKHACK: Ach agh, ach-ach-ach, hach, hach-arghhh, agh-agh-agh. Akh.

    <She walks slowly away from them towards a line of parked cars. After a short time, she fades from reality. The Dwarfers turn away, leaning against a high fence that looks out onto the street.>
