Arthur Dent and friends return in this latest outing, adapted and produced for radio by Dirk Maggs. Starring Simon Jones as Arthur Dent, Geoff McGivern as Ford Prefect, Mark Wing-Davey as Zaphod Beeblebrox, Sandra Dickinson as Trillian and Jane Horrocks as Fenchurch, with guest stars including Ed Byrne and Lenny Henry, this sixth season of the radio program is adapted from Eoin Colfer's novel And Another Thing . . . It also features previously unpublished additional material sourced from the late Douglas Adams's notebooks and writings.
The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy: Hexagonal Phase CD-Audio edition by Eoin Colfer
Douglas Noel Adams was born on 11 March 1952 in Cambridge. On leaving school, he won a scholarship to study English at Cambridge, where he joined the Footlights and later set up his own successful revue group, Adams-Smith-Adams.
In 1977 Douglas met BBC Radio 4 producer Simon Brett, who felt that Douglas' style of humour should have its own show. Having been inspired by a copy of The Hitchhiker's Guide to Europe, Douglas came up with a draft for The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. The worldwide phenomenon spawned by the radio series includes five novels, a book of scripts, two LPs, a television series, a computer game and two stage plays.
In addition to Hitchhiker's, Douglas' work included two Dirk Gently detective novels and two humorous place-name 'dictionaries', The Meaning of Liff and The Deeper Meaning of Liff (both co-written with John Lloyd) as well as Last Chance to See, an account of a global search for rare and endangered species which he co-wrote with Mark Carwardine.
His last series for Radio 4 was The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Future, a look at the advances mankind was likely to make in future years. He died suddenly of a heart attack, aged 49, in May 2001. A Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy feature film was produced in 2005, whilst both Stephen Mangan and Samuel Barnett have portrayed Dirk Gently on television in recent years.
