Look, Mr. Maud, Hitchhiker’s Guide and Doctor Who in the same post!

BBC Radio 4 has announced that it will dramatize and broadcast the three sequels to Douglas Adams’ The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy:

The second Hitchhiker book, Life, the Universe and Everything, which was originally conceived as a plot for Doctor Who, will be broadcast in six parts starting in September. Another yet-to-be-recorded eight-part series is planned for next year, adapting the two remaining books, So Long and Thanks for All the Fish, and Mostly Harmless.

The producers managed to track down the surviving cast of the original 1978 broadcast for the new dramatizations.
