What would you like to see in future Red Dwarf? If it were up to you, what would it do differently? I would like to see more recurring characters. I'm thinking particularly of Hogey the Roguey. The world they're in is important to me, and I'd like to get more of a feel for it. When they introduce Hogey the Roguey at the end of X, the Dwarfers are all sick to death of him, like he's been turning up for some time, whereas the audience had never seen him before or since! I actually think this was a deliberate in-joke about how characters drop in and out of Red Dwarf for one episode. It hints at all sorts of goings-on aboard ship that the audience never sees. I'd love it if Hogey dropped in again. And Snacky, what's happened to him? Maybe it'd be too much to ask him to re-appear in a speaking role, but I'd like to see a background cameo where he appears for eagle-eye fans. I like hearing or seeing references to previous episodes. I've moaned about this before, but just once I'd like the antagonists to express some surprise at meeting the Dwarfers, just to clarify that meeting a human is unusual in 3000000 deep-space. It's confusing when Simulants and GELFS talk about hating humans or whatever, because I'm thinking "when did they last see a human?". Surely GELFS have never even seen one before. But they act like "it's another one of these humans that we hate so much even though surely we've never seen one before because Lister is the only one". I'd like to get the odd Kochanski reference to clarify if they're still looking for her, and if so, how they're looking for her. They have nothing to go on. Does Kryten know which way she went? I assume they're still pointed towards Earth, since it's as good a direction as any to look for her in, in fact probably better since that's presumably where she headed too. She was last mentioned in Entangled, and seemingly forgotten all about in Krysis. My feeling is that something Kochanski-related will happen in XII (I didn't go to any screenings so this just my hunch). I don't want her to re-join the crew, but I want to be reminded that she's out there, like a carrot being dangled over the overall plot. I'd love some episodes where nothing in particular happens. I'd happily watch the crew hanging around aboard ship between adventures. Like the opening of Back to Earth where Rimmer is straightening the pictures and Lister is winding him up with the ironing. I'd like to see more episodes were it's killing-time-in-space. They don't need to have epic space adventures all the time. I miss when Lister and Rimmer had their existential conversations where they actually found some common ground with each other, like Balance of Power. Or Marooned where it's Lister and Rimmer trapped in a room. Those long discussions where the audience actually sympathise with Rimmer, like when his "father" died or when he agreed to let Lister burn his wooden soldiers. I'd like to get a reference to the map they got off Hogey the Roguey which was supposed to lead them to all sorts of amazing things, and then they never used it. I was, foolishly, interested in that map like it was some sort of plot development. Even if it's just a tease reference to the fact that they never used it, and it's in the pile with all the other one-episode-wonders they presumably still have somewhere. Like the joke where they kept getting interrupted whenever they tried to explain the Series VIII cliffhanger.
