Got around to thinking the other day, who’s the better Holly? I’d say it has to be the second Holly (Hattie Hayridge) but the first and also third Holly (Norman Lovett) was pretty good, too. But I’d still have to say the second Holly, though, because she was so funny all the time. Who agrees with me?29th January 2002 at 10:10 am #58663AnonymousGuest
I think that thare is no ” better” holly .they are both good and made me laugh.
and don’t get me strated on ”who is the better rimer”29th January 2002 at 1:33 pm #58664AnonymousGuest
LET OTHER PEOPLE GET A CHANCE TO WRITE!!! It’s gonna turn into a full-blown argument, isn’t it? It was bad enough on the Stargate Forum!
Besides, you answered to the Rimmer thing!!!29th January 2002 at 2:20 pm #58665AnonymousGuest
i have to agree. i like them both kinda equally. they both brought their own spin on the character of Holly. and they both were outrageously funny! i really can’t pick one over the other.29th January 2002 at 10:35 pm #58666FlamegrapeParticipant
I can’t decide either.
When I saw the show for the first time many years ago, all I saw was the “Hilly” Holly. Ever since then I thought that was the only one. But I recently bought all the episodes on tape and saw the “original” Holly.
I love them both!29th January 2002 at 10:40 pm #58667DalekTek790Participant
I like Norman Lovett. The dumb blonde Holly wasn’t near as funny.1st February 2002 at 4:10 pm #58668AnonymousGuest

Go to Sci-Fi Angst or my forum in Babylon 5… and THAT was payback??? Everyone knows my name! Look!!!2nd February 2002 at 10:40 am #58671AnonymousGuest
Just thought I’d say that I like Norman Lovett better – Hattie Hayridge was good, but I definitely prefer the male Holly……3rd February 2002 at 5:56 am #58672AnonymousGuest
How could you not like the second Holly? Okay, she’s stupid, but that’s part of what makes her so funny. The first Holly was sort of inexpressive and the second Holly was expressive. But I do agree that Norman Lovett was very good as Holly.3rd February 2002 at 8:15 am #58673AnonymousGuest
I’m not saying Hattie H. wasn’t good, I’ve just aways thought that Norman L. was better. It was good to see him come back in series 8…….4th February 2002 at 4:14 pm #58674AnonymousGuest
Well, I have to agree with you. It WAS good seeing Norman Lovett at the end of series 8. He’s a very good actor.6th February 2002 at 4:19 am #58675AnonymousGuest
I think the best Holly was Hilly6th February 2002 at 4:19 am #58676AnonymousGuest
Or possibly the pointy-headed Holly in Season 8 – much more meanacing!8th February 2002 at 11:02 pm #58677AnonymousGuest
Well, I LOVE Norman Lovett , but I’m fond of Hattye Hayridge as well.
My fave Holly moment? When Holly (Hattye Hayridge) first saw Ace, and fainted! lol (Perhaps my fave because Hattye wrote that bit in herself, as an excuse as to why Holly wasn’t in the rest of the episode).9th February 2002 at 12:36 am #58678AnonymousInactive
Norman Lovett, without a doubt (but then, I never have liked change).
What I really miss is his little trolley mind..10th February 2002 at 8:07 am #58679AnonymousGuest
Fave Holly moment: When he comes back at the end of Queeg and says “And the moral of the story is appreciate what you’ve got. Because basically, I’m fantastic!”
Very similar to my view of myself (the quote I mean, rather than my just being a disembodied head).10th February 2002 at 3:59 pm #58680AnonymousGuest
The pointy-headed Holly in series 8? I can’t remember that one. Although, the first and only time I ever saw series 8 was on New Year’s. They had a Red Dwarf marathon on UKTV and I stayed up to watch ALL the episodes. As a side-effect, I only got two hours sleep that night (and freaked out because I couldn’t remember whether or not I’d left my tape on to tape series 4!) and I can’t remember anything from about six o’clock onwards.
Still, I was in heaven!10th February 2002 at 4:05 pm #58681AnonymousGuest
I think I went off-track a bit there. Must be the after-affects of the marathon and my birthday.
My favourite Holly moment would have to be in Dimension Jump (I think it was Dimension Jump, anyway) when Holly talks about the purple alert.
Or, when Holly gets the wires mixed up in season 1 and Lister gets tossed over the bench. If I knew those quotes, I’d quote them. They were very funny.11th February 2002 at 9:46 pm #58682HollydaysParticipant
I think that I’m the best Holly.13th February 2002 at 2:34 am #58683AnonymousInactive

Yep, that was a funny bit, definately.17th March 2002 at 8:03 pm #58685AnonymousGuest
Definitely the male Holly. He is so much funnier, I found that in some episodes Hattie didn’t try (look at her dull acting in Justice) and she was completely unfunny. Norman Lovett is a great comedian.

Okay, you’ve converted me.
