To paraphrase Dave.
Would Red Dwarf be Red Dwarf without an ignorant Scouser and a failed Essex Boy?
Eddie Murphy might make a good Cat though?
Well I've not seen the US version of RD....
As for Doctor Who without the Daleks.
It strikes me that despite their infamy, they have not actually been used that often, seven or eight times, certainly less often than the Borg. The Master was a more frequent visitor. So put simply Doctor Who could survive without them, provided they continue to dream up the huge variety of alien menaces.
Thats true enough, but the Daleks are hugely iconic and are classic Dr Who.. But Star Trek survived Kirk and Spock...
