NOTICE: SHUTTING DOWN 4 JAN 2015

On January 4, 2015, I will be shutting down the server that hosts The TV IV website. It has been a very long time since I've been able to put any decent amount of time into the site, and ad revenue is plummeting. I think it is time to shut it down or hand it off to someone who can keep it going properly. If you are interested in taking over the site's code and data, contact administrators at tviv.org. --CygnusTMtalk

Basic Information

Note: Holly was played by actor Norman Lovett during seasons 1,2 7, and 8. During seasons 3, 4, and 5 Holly was played by actress Hattie Hayridge. There were no appearances at all by Holly in season 6.

Holly is the ship's computer. He always appears as a disembodied head on a video screen of some sort. In the early seasons, each episode had a prologue where Holly gave a quick background of the show. The prologues usually ended with a joke of some sort.

Holly claims to have an IQ of 6000. However true that may or may not have been in the beginning, after three-million years, Holly has lost a few points and gotten "a bit peculiar". He is not above playing a joke here and there, and he is certainly not "infullible" (infallible).

Character History

Holly as played by Hattie Haydridge
At the start of season 3, Holly performed a "head sex-change" operation in order to look like the female computer (pictured left) that he had once fallen in love with in the episode Parallel Universe. After the change, Holly was just as ... let's just say her IQ remained the same!

Memorable Moments

Trivia

  • Holly claims to have been in love once: a Sinclair ZX-81. She was cheap, stupid, and wouldn't load, at least not for him anyway.
  • Holly is responsible for maintaining the ship's hologram (Rimmer): waking him, dressing him, etc.
