I genuinely cannot think of anyone who could play any of these characters. They were the type of characters that you either get right with a certain actress, or don't get right at all. I cannot imagine anyone else playing the freak...that's Maggie Kirkpatrick's role...maybe someone else could portray a similarly good villain...but they could not portray the freak as Kirkpatrick did. Same goes for any other dominant role I feel...and Pixie...nobody else could portray her in the same way.

It is more than good script writing that makes a good character, and the actor's persona/presence has so much to do with it...there are characters you're either supposed to love or hate, such as the can only love a character like her if it is portrayed accurately. Other characters that you are also supposed to love to hate, are people such as Kay...can't remember her surname...well, I never even loved to hate her because I didn't really think it was acted that well...although Sonia Stevens was superb...I loved to hate her, then loved her, then hated her....

There are story line changes I would make if it were possible to time travel...but alas, not.
