Just a thought that entered my head.
Should DOND even be revived soon?
Should it be in a different studio?
Should the top prize be increased?
Should the money amounts stay the same?
Should they stop with those needless traditions whenever the 1p is revealed?
Should there be a new banker?
Should Noel come back as host?
Should the players still be standing so close to each other? (I know COVID is now pretty much an endemic but still)
I mean there’s so many should ifs I could come up with but I wanna know what you guys think!

Never say never I guess, but it feels unlikely that a production company or channel would want to take on a show with a production & prize budget like DOND right now.

Should it be in a different studio?
It would have to be, as the old set would have been packed away when the show ended. I always thought the studio formats used suited the show well.

Should the top prize be increased?
No, the jackpot was only won once a year on average, so no point making it bigger. It'd be more likely to go down I reckon.

Should the money amounts stay the same?
Yes, unless they decide to have fewer boxes and fewer players as a result.

Should they stop with those needless traditions whenever the 1p is revealed?
Only if they're wanting the players to make less physical contact with each other.

Should there be a new banker?
The banker character was meant to be in his 80s or something wasn't he? Depends how far into the future we'd be going! Also worth noting that the banker's back story was built up over several years, so it would depend if they wanted to start from scratch or not.

Should Noel come back as host?
Think he's already gone on record saying he wouldn't do another series? Think he'd rather apply to be the next Countdown host!

Should the players still be standing so close to each other? (I know COVID is now pretty much an endemic but still)
Well, COVID numbers were rising not long ago so we're not out of the woods yet! I suggested in another thread that maybe the wings should be on more than one level to space the players out more, while someone else also suggested glass panels between players, which the Greek version has done (Mock The Week also used them). This is perhaps another reason why a revived version wouldn't look good - the players' hugging and dancing is all part of their camaraderie, which was good for the viewer to see, and standing isolated just wouldn't build the same atmosphere.

It's very late and my eyes are going, so I hope this makes sense!

The Banker was, I *think*, 80 in his first birthday show (a low key affair in May 2006, the contestant wanted an Orient Express journey I randomly remember). Canonically he'd be 96 now. Not really selling it as a tough, sharp old git at this point. But a 'sprightly' 70 year old son could step in his place...

Noel Edmonds is permanently a New Zealand resident now? I don't see him doing anything else. The I'm a Celeb appearance only came about because of his ideally located re-homing.

The only issue that could affect the contestants is if the attitudes of the bosses means a positive case would scupper the entire thing. If not, then it'd go ahead as it used to be. Everything else in society has (in my work, we're told to work if we're positive because ''da rules don't seyyy we haff to isolateee''). There'll be plenty of hugging in tonight's Community Shield! And tomorrow's Euro final.

I shall answer, as has Brick, in the time-honoured fashion...

Should DoND even be revived soon?
I don't believe it should be revived at all, never mind soon; it had its time, its seed was planted and watered and fed, that seed germinated, green shoots appeared and the flowers soon developed, in a few months the great organism that DoND was grew and blossomed, and that blossom was beautiful, as blossom tends to be. Then, after a long and blissful and fruitful summer, the winds changed, and autumn came, and in its own time, in its own way, the plant returned to seed. We cannot go back in time; only ever forward.

Should it be in a different studio?
In the event that DoND did return, though, I think it would have to be filmed elsewhere as Brick says - but I do agree re the studio format being perfect for the show. Paintworks had a homely feel to it!

Should the top prize be increased?
Personally, I don't think having prizes anywhere near £250,000 would be viable for a game show at the moment. You'd be looking at a much-altered game board, with far less at stake in numerical terms - a top prize of £25,000, perhaps.

Should the money amounts stay the same?
See above

Should they stop with those needless traditions whenever the 1p is revealed?
Yes.

Should there be a new banker?
No.

Should Noel come back as host?
Only if he wanted to.

Should the players still be standing so close to each other? (I know COVID is now pretty much an endemic but still)
Yes.

:P

Like Tom Hanks and his football on that island in 'Cast Away', it looks like it's just me and the bots here now. But that's alright, we're having a grand old time. Aren't we, Wilson? WILSOOOOON?!

A few of us who were once part of the furniture, once stalwarts of the grand and extravagant, exuberant and thriving forum...have receded back into the walls, still faintly visible, still here as poignant, reminding relics of an era gone by; but most of us have vanished, forever immersed in the mists of time.
