Doon Mackichan, who played the drunken neighbor Cathy in the popular comedy, has left the show, and fans want a favorite from Still Game to take her place.

The actress decided to go on to other projects, and the show's producers have announced that she won't be in the sitcom when it returns to television later this year.

The actress has gained cult status as a result of the wild actions of the perennially drunk neighbor from Latimer Crescent in the popular BBC sitcom.

And while Doon acknowledges that she has borrowed some of Cathy's personality traits from pals, she claims that her own wild partying has had a more significant influence.

There are three or four people who, when they've had a few drinks, are unquestionably her go -to-Cathy friends. However, there's also herself; she said that she'd undoubtedly humiliate herself on the dance floor after a few too many of those drinks.

The fictional Latimer Crescent is the setting for the Scottish sitcom, which centers on a group of dysfunctional neighbors and their large families. Elaine C. Smith, a former Rab C. Nesbitt actress, plays the brutally honest Christine O'Neal, while Alex Norton, a favorite of Taggart's, plays the family man Eric Baird. 

Doon's persona is at the center of several memorable sequences, such as the famed hot tub party and Cathy's birthday celebration for Colin's irate father. She does, however, appear entirely different in a few old-school photos, which is out of character.

Now that the release date is coming near, the anticipation of the fans is going even higher. Firstly, everyone's favorite show, but without their favorite character, this is a bit difficult to stay with the audience.

Over the years, Doon developed a devoted following for her portrayal of Cathy and her drunken, smoking, and envious tendencies, as well as for her caustic criticism of the other characters. Social media was used by show fans to express their surprise and dissatisfaction.

What Doon's plans are for the future are as of yet unknown. One fan, though, jokingly said: "Cathy getting her own spin off about her living it up in Spain single and ready to vape, drink, then mingle is the only logical excuse for Doon Mackichan leaving #TwoDoorsDown! opening a bar, but having someone else manage it. among them a Drag Queen who begins to imitate her.
