For those who know where their towel is

Dirk Mags who was involved in the Radio 4 Good Omens production is going to be doing The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy: Hexagonal Phase for the 40th anniversary next year. Where did all that time go :?: I remember the 1st transmissions in 1978 in the Sunday afternoon radio4 comedy slot.

Dirk also produced the Tertiary, Quandary and Quintessential Phases in the early 00's. They were started with Douglas Adams's approval (before his passing in 2001) and Adams even provides the voice for Agrajag. Maggs did something good in that he turned the ending of "Mostly Harmless" from depressing to hopeful...

Having not read Eoin Colfer's "And Another Thing..." on which the Hexagonal Phase will be based, I'm not certain I'm looking forward to it. From all reports, "And Another Thing..." wasn't really Hitch-hiker's...
